Default PWS Treatment Specialists in VA/DC?

Hello,

Hoping that someone familiar with the Northern Virginia, Washington DC area can recommend best specialists for treating PWS.

I have been seen by Dr Robert Adrian, who I do like. However, I would like a second or third opinion before undertaking this "project".

I have a PWS covering the left side of my face with some cobbling. The lip and eye lid are involved. I am 47 years old, and am concerned about being out of work for an extended period of time, and I also am afraid of scarring. Currently, I have good success with Dermablend products, but as thickening increases this seems a less viable option.

Can anyone share positive and/or negative experiences with laser treatment in this area?

Many thanks!
Gusto
