Default 9 year old with deep hemangioma of forearm....new treatment options?

my 9 year old daughter has deep hemangioma on left forearm from wrist to elbow. when she was between 1-4 years old she had multiple pulse dye laser treatments that successfully removed the deep red coloration, it is now her skin tone in color with bluish undertones. we were told as she gets older will involute. she's 9 and no sign of involution, arm is still if not as of recently, very puffy in appearance, swollen. recently complaints of ot feeling sore and some deeper blue coloration appearing. we have appointment next month again but curious if any one has older kids with this and if so, what treatment at this point.
