Hello,

Laser can be beneficial for some hemangiomas. Typically used for someone flat lesions. You can see pictures of my son on the msn support group http://groups.msn.com/vascularbirthm...on=get_threads
He is on page 22 Nicholas segmental hemangioma. He had 8 total laser tx. as his lesion was extensive. He has no scarring. I feel strongly that an experience laser specialist should do the laser treatments. You should consider contacting Dr. Stuart Nelson on ask the expert page for his advice. If you can share a photo of the lid h. that would be helpful.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about laser.

Corinne
