Default Efficiency of laser treatment?

I have a son who is 7 months old. He has a pws right under his left eye. We have just started laser treatment, and they have done a first "test pulse" to see how responsive he is to the laser and how they should fine tune the equipment (Flash lamp pumped dye laser).

It has now been two weeks since the test pulse, and the black/blue left by the laser has disappeared. However, I can't see any fading in the pws. They tell me we have to wait 2-3 months for the fading to show, by I still worry.

Can anyone with direct experience tell me how long it takes before any fading can be noticed?

Also, how common is it that pws are non-responsive to laser treatment?

Thanks!
