Benefits of laser tx to compound hemangioma?
My daughter (7 weeks) was diagnosed today with a compound hemangioma between her eyes. At this point the hemangioma seems to be relatively small, however there is a noticeable bump in addition to the red discoloration. She received her first laser treatment today and her MD is optimistic that because treatment is early, the laser may help slow the growth of both aspects of the hemangioma. We're scheduled to repeat the treatment in 3 weeks. I was under the impression laser was only effective on superficial hemangiomas. Has anyone also seen benefit to the deeply affected tissue from laser treatment? Thanks.
