Default Re:Efficiency of laser treatment?

Hi. It also takes 8-12 weeks to see true fading in my daughter. The pws stays red for almost that amount of time.
Some areas do respond better to treatment in some people. The temple/forehead and neck tend to respond better than the cheek or lip area. That is not everyone though. Everyone does respond differently. Some areas may appear to be stubborn BUT that does not mean that you will not see fading there, it just may take a little longer.
It may also be harder for you to "notice" any fading since you see your cjild everyday.
Hang in there. We began treatment when my daughter was six weeks old. Good luck to you...
