Default alternative treatments to laser

My 1-year-old daughter has a port wine stain on her cheek. She's had approximately 10 laser treatments and they no longer appear to be effective. Overall, the PWS has gotten both lighter and smaller but it is still quite noticeable.

Does anyone know of any alternative treatments to laser? We've been told by one doctor that her PWS was perhaps small enough to be surgically removed.

Any thoughts or references about alternative treatments would be much appreciated.
