My daughter is 9 months old with a large stain that covers around 50% of her right leg and butt cheek. We have seen 2 specialists. The first said that laser treatment is ineffective due to the vascular pressure in the legs as compaired to the upper body. His name is Dr Burns in Dallas and he is very well respected in the PWS field. We have since seen another specialist in Austin, Dr Levin. He insists that we can see good results from laser tratment, however agrees that they will require twice as many to get the same results as a facial stain. We have not yet decided to move forward with treatment, so if you do please get in touch with me and let me know how it goes. We spent a good deal of time with each doc and asked a lot of questions. Please feel free to contact me if you want further details. Good luck,

Tom
