Sarabr12,

Based on the picture you posted of Rameen...I would encourage you to contact a specialist that offers laser tx. If you have questions about laser, I would be happy to help, Dr. Nelson on ask the expert is also a great resource. In my opinion, based on how flat your daughter's h. is...laser might be a good option. If you would like to see results of my son's laser txs. please go to the vascular birthmark support group (msn) and go to page 22 Nicholas segmental hemanigoma. If you have any questions please let me know. Originally my son's doctors thought he would need facial reconstruction surgery ("face lift")....he would have a large scar along his jawline they told me. We opted to give laser a try first and we are pleased with the results...and the reconstructive surgery did not have to take place. No scar.
