Unhappy Laser treatment frequency and effectiveness

My son who is now 9 has a port wine stain on his face. Since he started treatment at about the age of 2 yrs, the frequency has only been about every 4-6 months. I accepted that this is the way it was, however now I am wondering if he should have been or should be having treatment more frequently I. Order for better results. I have not really seen improvement and I am quite disappointed. We are in Canada and I am ready to look elsewhere to get results. I read efficacy is improved with frequent treatments at 4-8 week intervals. I feel failed by the medical system.

Thanks for any feedback
