pws over right eyelid to hairline- PDL treatments
I am a 41-year old female with a port wine stain over my right eyelid that extends into my hairline. I have decided to try pulse dye laser treatments to see if the birthmark will fade. My main reason for this is that I have read the pws can grow thicker over time, the current state is a reddish-pink color, with no bumps. Since the pws is on my eyelid, fortunately my insurance does cover 80%, after I pay my $500 deductible.
I have had 2 treatments so far, and haven't notice any significant change. The first treatment I had a swollen eyelid, and some bruising. I think the swollen eyelid was from the eye shield, it was a bugger to go in. The second treatment, no swollen eyelid, but I did have bruising over the treated area, although it went away in a week.
The treatments are fine, they do not hurt. The doctor's office is 3 hours away, so its a long day with 6 hours of driving.
I am wondering if anyone has a pws on the face and have done pdl treatments? I would love to hear about your experience.
Thank You for reading!
