Default Re:Laser treatments of infants : PLEASE HELP

Hi,

Remember it usually takes around 8 weeks to see results. Also remember that you need to have realistic expecitations when treating. Pws will not be fully eradicated. You also have to consider that the central face area is the most stuboorn area to treat. They are not totally impossible, but may take many more txs than other areas of the face. The central face area includes the fatty portion of the cheek from under the eye to the upper lip.

I have heard that Dr. Frieden is good. Dr. Geronemus is also a fantastic doctor as well. We are traveling from Texas to Dr. G for treatments as my dd's pws is stubborn. He has a one of a kind laser that seems to be helping my dd's lesion at this time.

I hope this helps.
