Default Re:When to start laser treatment

Heather,

Some doctors do not like to start laser treatment on infants because either not enough experence with infants, or are not up to the technology to proform on a infant. If you look to the left of this page, under resources, click on Find a physician, then the your state, then find a doctor in your area.

One laser I know of that is safe on infants is a V-Beam Pulse Dye laser. I have used this lase on my PWS that is on my face and does not scare or bruise. I have been doing laser treatment for 14 years off and on and have used four different laser, and this laser is my favorite.
Ask the dermatologist you find if they use this laser or one similar.

I wish you the best of luck and if you have any question please ask if I can not answer it I am sure someone on this website can.

Hank
