My daughter has a hemangioma and receives pulsed dye laser. I also live in Las Vegas and could not find anyone to treat her here. We see Dr Stuart Nelson over in Irvine Ca. It is a 4-5 hour drive. He actually specializes in pws so he would be the perfect guy for you. He is featured on this website now too. Email him and if you can attach a picture. He is very knowledgable.
There is a Dr Handler here in town that gets a pdl machine once a month but we chose to have someone who specialized in vascular birthmarks and laser to treat our daughter. Hope this helps and good luck!

I should add...
the pdl Dr. Handler gets once a month is a sclerolaser which is an older version of pulsed dye laser. The v beam is the newer pdl.

I agree that you should go see Dr. Nelson. An expert can take care of a vascular birthmark in less time and treatments than a non-expert and you will get accurate information and the truth. Dr. Nelson is a national expert.
