Default looking for photos of before/after laser treatment

Hello -

My daughter's doctor would now like to do laser treatments on her H. She was previously treated with propranolol rather successfully last year. Unfortunately, my doctor doesn't have any before/after pictures for laser treatment nor can I find any on the web. Can anyone please share pictures of before/after? I am especially interested in after pictures that highlight immediately after the treatment (I'm told that the H can look purple then) and then a little after once the purple is gone. Also, if you have pictures after each laser treatment so that I can see the progression, that would be great too. My daughter will need 4-6 treatments.

Thanks in advance!
CC Davis

Please email me at cc.davis@comcast.net if you have pictures to share.

We'd love to see some photos, too, as our daughter is scheduled to have her first laser treatment on July 30. Would you mind forwarding the pictures you get, if they are not posted here? Thank you! Ellie

Does your doctor have experience with lasering hemangiomas? I don't understand why he/she would want to see pictures? I'm not being judgemental just curious.

I just re-read it. now I get it. You'd like to see pictures and your doctor, does have pictures but can release them to you without permission etc.... Duh.

I've posted a thread with pictures of my daughter through her six laser treatments thus far. I'm not sure what type of hemangioma your child has, ours has a nasal tip h, so the pictures may not really be relevant to you. I can say that the laser treatments have done an excellent job of stopping any further growth, and have even somewhat diminished her hemangioma.

Good luck.
