We did laser treatments for about a year but them had to stop because our dr over lasered the area and she didn't think the skin would repigment but thankfully it did after about 8-9 months. We see a dr in Chicago. We haven't seen the dr since Sept 2011. It took me a long time to get over my frustration with her. I also wondered if there are other options out there to help the hand with the PWS? I was always told from the beginning that the pulsed dye laser wouldn't help but maybe something else can. Just looking for some input from others like my son. I'm so nervous for him to enter preschool this August. I just want to take it away from him.
Hi prezy 21, my son, 2 years old has the exact same birthmark on his left arm and hand. We are also in Chicago and he was seeing a derm at Laurie hospital. Can I please ask you how the laser treatments went and what degree of fading was achieved?

Thanks,
Mary
