Default How likely it is for PWS to completely go away with the laser treatments

Hi,
We have one year old baby with PWS on left cheek. He went through his first treatment when he was 6 month old and then the machine broke down- so we had to wait for the new machine.
Since then he had two unsuccessful treatments with the new improved machine since his PWS hardly reacted to the new laser.
The doctor suggested (and we agreed) having the next treatment under general anesthesia in order for him to be able to calmly adjust the machine parameters to the child. (Until now we had the treatments without anesthesia since our child is cooperating pretty well).
Did anyone else have problems adjusting the parameters for his child and still ended up with successful results? And do you know of many cases of PWS that completely went away?
Another thing that is bothering me is how will we get our chubby little baby not to eat 6 hours before the anesthesia????
