First of all welcome to the group.
I am also 23 years old with a facial PWS but on the right side of my face. I also started laser treatment when I was 5 years old and have had close to a hundred treatments I have used four different laser to date (one was still expermental). My first Derm I went to when I started did not believe in putting kids under GA so my parents and nurse held me down for treatments. Did that for about eight years before finding a doctor closer to us in Nebraska then started going under GA for treatment for about two years before I started to get tired of it then just got the treatments straight with either numbing shots or numbing creams. I guess I never did take pain pills for any of the treatments, I guess I just got use to it after having them so much.
Now I have had three plastic surgeries/debulkings on my face from where my PWS started to grow. It looks puffy and thick. It is probably caused by hormones.
I would like to learn more about and to see how much more we have in common with awere birthmarks. If you want to see pictures of me and read more about me you can go to my website at www.hankspws.com

I hope to hear from you soon and if you ever have any questions please ask we are all here for you.
