Default Steroid injections vs Propanolol for facial H?

My daughter is 8.5 weeks and has a compound H between her eyes which is still relatively small. To date she has received 2 pulsed dye laser treatments and 1 cortisone injection. The superficial portion is almost completely gone and the deep portion has shown about a 50% reduction in size since the last treatment. We got a second opinion today from a pediatric derm in another city and he is recommending propanolol instead of her current treatments. I'm not sure which way to go - any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
