Default Hello

Hello everyone, Im a young girl from London. I have a pws on the right cheek of my face. I wanted to know how long does the treatment take to go down for everyone on here? I wanted to know as mine takes 7-10 days to go down. I would like to speak to people who understand about pws and dont judge as ive had some nasty people judging me calling me names. Does it get easier when you get older. Im a late teens girl.

Can you tell me what age i look here and whether i look ugly thankyou im late teens.

Hi there!

I responded to your other thread. But I'm going to add here: If you're feeling overwhelmed or depressed, please do talk to your parents about that and get it addressed. Being a teenager is too hard to do it alone!

I can't see your pictures without a password, but wanted to tell you I have a very large pws on my face, neck & upper chest, and am 56 years old. There were no options when I was your age except thick makeup, so I feel for you! I'm sure you are having a hard time, but glad you do have the option to have laser treatments which will at least make it easier to the point where people pay more attention to who you are than how you look. My laser treatments take about 8-10 days to heal enough to wear makeup again. Please feel free to email me if you'd like... Been there! BeckyCW
