Re: Dr. Roy Geronemus vs. Dr. Milton Waner
Just wanted to let you know Dr. Waner uses the V-Beam PDL. If Dr. Geronemus is close to where you live I would suggest keep seeing him, and ask him if he can turn up the voltage on the machine. It will take time to get the PWS removed. I started when I was 5 years old and have been doing for 14 years off and on now.
I would try all your options before see Dr. Waner because it will cost you twice as much with the hospital bills, plus travel expenses. Dr. Waner is very good, but also, very busy. It will take aleast three to four months just to get into see him.
I would get your current doctors opinion on if the treatments are still working, if he does not have a answer I would suggest getting a second opinion in your area. If you go to the front page of this site and click on resources, then find a physican, and then your state or one close to you. If there are a couple call them all and see what they say.
Also, if your daughters marks are puffing up or swelling I would get a opinion of a plastic surgeon.
When your daughter is hyper, angry, or active her marks will get darker because her blood flow is increasing.
It happens to me all the time, do not worry she can not tell, or even feel it. The only way I can tell is if I look in the mirror.
I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please ask, we are here to help you.
