Default Laser Treatment-What to expect

After a battle with the insurance company, my son has finally been approved for laser treatments! I was wondering if I could get advice from those of you who have received laser treatments yourselves and from parents of infants who have received laser treatments.

What do you wish you had known prior to the first treatment?

First of all, YEA on getting the ins. company on board.

Other people will chime in on what to expect, but it will help if you refresh our memories... how old is your son and where is his PWS located?

My son is 4 months old and has PWS on his chest, back, and both legs. They said that his treatments would last one hour each session.
