My Story
Hey my name is Mike I have a dark PWS on the left side of my face, I'm 50 years old and had a few treatments in my early years with no success. I came across a plastic surgeon here in my home town that has a Pulse Dye Laser so I just finished my second visit, hopefully I will get good results, I will keep you posted. Has anyone had good success with the PDL?

Hi and welcome!

I'm going to move your post over to the PWS section. More people over there will be able to give you their stories.

Lots of people do have success with PDL. At your age, it might help if you have started to develop cobbles or blebs, even if it doesn't diminish the coloring.

How many treatments do you have planned?

That sounds good! How far apart do you have to wait between treatments and what is your recovery like? I take it you are pleased!
