Default Canada - Saskatchewan - Laser treatment

Hi, I have a beautiful 2 month old baby with PWS on his cheek, eyelid and a portion of the forehead. My wife and I have been trying to find a place locally that can perform laser treatments but we have had no luck(We are in Saskatoon). The one laser clinic we went to no longer performs this procedure on infants. They said they would try to find out if there is anywhere else we can go for treatment. After a few weeks, we were advised that they were unable to find a place that would perform the treatments on a child under the age of 8. From my understanding they checked western Canada.

My question is if anyone is aware of any clinics/hospitals that would perform this on a baby in Saskatchewan(or a near by province). It would be nice to find somewhere close, but if need be, we are definitely willing to travel.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
