Default Re:couple of questions on pws

Hi Hannah,

My name is Hank, I am 21 years old with PWS.
I am in the same boat as you I started laser treatment when I was five years old and did it for 14 years off and on. Still have not had the major areas removed where my hemangiomas are around and probably never will.
Laser machines have changed since I first started with laser treatment. I have used four different lasers in my time but that is a different story.

So far my PWS has not gotten any darker, but am also wondering if my marks will get darker.
I just graduated from college and I know exactly what you are talking about it seemed that it all started over again with the stares and questions.

I hope to talk to you soon and am glad you are here on this website.
