We had a consultation the day before the treatment because we flew in from out of state.
I'm so glad you posted this because I emailed Dr. Nelson a while back to inquire. Lilypad, can you describe how the procedure went for your daughter? How was the recovery time? I would also have to fly out for treatments, so it would be very expensive. If you're willing to share your experiences and photos of the results, that would be greatly appreciated and helpful to many. Thank you!
I'm glad to have started this thread and opened up the communication for people with Nevus of Ota. It is a very lonely condition, so it's nice to hear from others who can relate. God bless everyone.
