Default Re: My baby has a strawberry hemangioma

Nicholas' started to turn a lighter colour around 7.5 months of age.. this hopefully is a sign of regression. i think it looks smaller to me now bc he has grown and the hemangioma is staying the same size? he acutally has an appointment to get it lasered next month.. i am alittle worried about it causing it grow again bc that is a risk but its a very small chance so i think i will go ahead with it.. we are having that done in Toronto and a derm is doing it.. its apprently very quick and the baby will only feel a quick snapping feeling and is awake the entire time.. i dont htink i would of chosen to do this is we had to put him under to many risks involved.. has anyone else has the laser done he referred to it as a "v"beam. thanks alot
