Default Different Laser Treatments


I am a 35 year old with PWS on my cheek.* I've been undergoing laser treatments for the past 20 years....using the pulsed dye laser exclusively for the past 10 years.* My stain has lightened only about 60%, but is easily coverable by makeup.* I go in for pulse dye laser treatments once or twice a year, but can't seem to make any new progress.* I think I've hit a roadblock, but don't want to give up.

Has anyone had any success with any other lasers?* Have they come out with a new laser that may provide additional benefit?* Has anyone used the Versapulse C laser for PWS with success?

Thanks for your help!
