I agree that the right person will not care about your birthmark. My PWS covers half of my nose, over and under the eye (on the same side) and extends up onto my forehead. I am 32, never had any type of treatment for it. I do, however, cover my birthmark with make-up, especially when I go out with my family or to school (been back in school for two years, make-up every day). I find it easier that getting stares or answering dumb questions. But, you do have to learn how to be comfortable in your own skin. Those people, worth having in your life, will not care one bit, about your birthmark. They probably even like the fact that it has helped make you who you are. Good Luck!
