Default Vascular malformation/port wine stain treatment

My son, who is now approaching 9 years, was born with a vascular malformation over his left hand and arm. He was referred to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London for diagnosis. He was seen by Dr Harper of their Birthmark clinic who told us not to be concerned and that should Sam decide later in life to have it "removed" by laser this was not a problem. On reading your website, I see that it is recommended to begin laser therapy as early as possible. I am now confused?
