Hi Willa, my name is hank, I know you where asking purplecolor, but I can help.

If you go to the right side of this page and under resources click on find a physician, then find your state or one close to you and then find a dermatologist in that area. Depending on your daughters PWS will tell you how long she will have to have treatment. Everybody is different with there own form of PWS.
From what you have described with your daughters shade of PWS does sound like it will take much for the removal of the mark. Laser treatment is very safe and does not scare depending on the machine used. I have been doing treatment for fourteen years and one of the lasers I have used that does not hurt every much is the V-Beam Pulse Dye Laser. It is safe for infants and does not swell or scare. If you would like to talk more just message me back I we can talk.

Hank
