Default Re:Upper Arm PWS

Hi,

It is my understanding that upper arms do well. With that said all pws are individual and many factors affect treatment/results. It is said the earlier one begins laser tx in infancy the better the overall outcome. It would be wise to seek a physician that is an expert with lasering children's pws. I have said it over and over to others....Just because a doc owns or has access to a laser does not make them experienced, knowledgable or skilled enough to treat pws or other vascular lesions. Finding a good specialist will be the key.

The vbeam is a good choice for treating children's pws. It is just one brand an model of the pdl. Cynosure makes a good pdl laser as well.

Best wishes on any upcoming treatments.
