Hello, my son had a segmental hemangioma of the right side of his face/head, ear, eyelid. Segmental h. will involute, but often will leave atrophied skin. Steroids did work for my son early on (he started them at 6 weeks old and finished in 12 weeks). We then went on to laser tx. 8 total. It is very very hard to tell he ever had a b-mark before. If you have more questions I would be happy to go into more detail via email or a post.

how old is your child?
