Re:Effectiveness of Laser
As you know every pws responds differently to laser. Some areas tend to be more stubborn than others. My daughter has a facial pws. Her results have been very good. When people see her pictures, they always comment on her fading and I have to remind them that she began laser treatments when she was six weeks old and she had 12 or 13 laser treatments before she was even a year old. Her temple area responded very well but she has a little bit on her upper cheek that has not responded as well. It is being "stubborn." I dont know what laser setting your doctor uses, but most doctors will attempt to use the "best settings" while minimizing the risk of scarring.
It may also be hard for you to judge actual fading because you see her everyday. Pictures also can be difficult to use as a guide because sometimes the pws looks darker in pictures or sometimes lighter. Also remember that being vascular, temperature, moods etc can affect it. I have never seen true fading in my daughter until at least 10-12 weeks after a treatment.
Her pws also bisects her upper eyelid so we also have to see an eye doctor since she is at risk for Glaucoma.
Hang in there and ask any questions that you may have. If I did not answer all your questions, please let me know.....
