I'm new here!! Questions????
Hello All !!!!
My son has a PWS on his forehead, approx nickel sized. His PWS is almost directly in between his eyebrows. We are scheduled for next Tueday for his first laser treatment with the VBEAM Perfecta laser. THey plan to do this by using topical anethesia, and also giving my son a Tylenol #3 to help him relax. We are having this done at Children's hosptial in Birmingham. He is 19months old. Due to the size of his PWS they only expect this treatment to take between 15-30 seconds, longer the first time, while they figure out the appropriate settings. I'm very nervous. Is this going to be very painful for him. We would have started treatment earlier, but we were told by my sons pediatrician, who I love, that this was a angel kiss, and would go away with time, until he was 15 months and I asked for a referral to a dermatologists. Any information you can provide me with would be great. Thank you to all. This site is a great support to me.
