My daughter just turned 1 and is weaned completely. It was a slow process though because we tried to wean her a little too early and had some rebound. After weaning completely, her hemangioma grew a tiny bit then stopped. It is still there but not growing. At this point, we are just letting it go away on it's own. It is pale pink and the skin appears to be going to normal, although still slightly raised. I would imagine the skin varies depending on the size of the hemangioma and location. Hers was about the size of a big M&M when we started propranolol. It was on the side of her nose. I feel like her nose and skin will probably be back to normal when all is done. If not, thats fine too - those slight differences add character
