Default Re:Lasting Laser Therapy of Port Wine Stains


I have a newborn with PWS on her cheek and neck. I am very confused after reading the entries on this site. Is treatment permanent or will my daughter have to have treament her whole life? I would love to believe what you say but the other stories are so conflicting that I don't know what to believe. Her birthmark is about the shade of pinkness on the newborn's left cheek that is shown as an example of PWS. Should we expect this to get darker or could it remain the same. The mark is many shades lighter than the one shown on the baby's right temple. Her two week check-up is coming up so we haven't discussed this with the pediatrition yet. However the doctor who delivered her confirmed it was in fact PWS. Can you help direct us?

thank you,
