Default daughter w/ H between eyebrows

Our daughter has an H between her eyebrows, she is nearly 3 months old, we have been reading a number of posts on this site. We are in Texas and were wondering if anyone knows or has used Dr. Buckingham in Austin.

The H is growing out and has been for 4 weeks. We are not sure which way to go.

Default dr. Buckingham

I took my daughter to Dr. Buckingham to get pulse dye laser on her facial hemangiomas, at the time hers were flat red blood vessels, called tangelectasia, I think. you may want to check my spelling. It did decrease the redness, but it left a few more scars than I would have liked. Most likely because my daughter was about 4 and would not leave the area alone. He is very nice, and seems to echo the expetise of the first doctor I saw. I would suggest Dr. Denise Metry in Houston also, she specializes in children only, where Dr Buckingham does both adults and children. She works out of the Texas Childrens Hospital.
