Smile Improvement with Timolol

Our daughter began using Timolol about 10 days ago to treat a compound H between her eyes. Currently she is 13 weeks and thus far she has had 3 laser treatments and 2 cortisone injections. Prior to initiating Timolol her H had remained relatively small (marble size) so we were reluctant to use Propranolol and thought we would try the topical option first. We've definitely not seen any additional growth and it seems as if her H has shrunk - at times it is completely flush w/ her skin. The results have been much better than we expected and for an already anxious mom it's nice to not have to worry about systemic effects.
