Default Re:PWS, Hemangioma or Angel Kisses

Our son has had two laser treatments with a pulse dye laser. He has a hemangioma, but it is pretty flat. They sedated (just enough that he could not move and slept thru the treatment....also they gave my son tylenol for discomfort that might follow after the procedure. I would ask about sedation. It is a lot less scary for a baby than being held down.
