Default Laser treatment with less bruising?

Hi there -

I've had laser treatments years ago for my port wine stain birthmark (located on my face and neck), but I haven't had treatments in many years. I have a full-time job and a young child, and I've found it difficult to take two weeks "off" after the treatment, and I am uncomfortable being in public with the heavy bruising. I've heard from one dermatologist that they can now treat PWS with less bruising.

Does anyone have any information about this?

Thanks so much
