Default PWS questions about scheduled treatment

Hi All,

I am a 35yo woman with a PWS on the right side of my right leg/foot. I last had it treated with a Candela laser around 1991/2. At that time I went four times (they did a section at a time) for one overall treatment. I noticed minimal lightening of the BM and you can see "dots" where the laser was pulsed.

I recently scheduled an appt with a local DR (there are no NH docs on your resuource list). They use the Lumeris laser. Anyone familiar with it? They don't seem to have any before/after pics for me to look at. Are there other treatment options I should inquire about? Anyone had any luck getting their insurance company to cover treatment? WHEW~ Sorry to pepper you all with questions. Here are some pics.
