Default Is there really help????????????

Hello everyone: I have a PWS on my left leg since birth. Last year I went to see a dermatologist in the Denver area regarding laser treatment. I cried all the way home, discouraged and feeling horrible. The Dr. told me because I have dark skin (hispanic descent) that laser treatment will not work for me. Has anyone else run into this problem? I am 30 years old, and engaged. My future husband wants to go to Brazil for our honeymoon. I don't dare wear a shorts, much less a bathing suite. So, is there really a treatment out there that can help????????????
