Default couple of questions on pws

hi, i'm hannah and in 22 years old. i'm really glad i found this page, its nice to hear all your stories. i have a pws on the right side of my face. i started laser treatment when i was 10 and continued it for 4 years. it did fade my bm but not by very much. i was never that bothered by it when i was at school because i had known most people there for years, however when i went to university it did start to bother me. now i'm getting worried it will get darker with time. does it always get darker with age? will the skin thicken? i was quite young when i went for the laser treatment and i never thought to ask. also it is near my eye, does this mean i might get glaucoma?
thanks for listening to me
