Sclerotherapy is a good option. Everyone's body is different, so each person will react differently to treatment. It may be tender and a bit inflamed after the treatment, but will slowly shrink down if the treatment works. It is a less invasive procedure compared to surgery and the recovery time is a lot less. It's the same treatment they use for varicose veins, so you can look up how that all works and that is basically what they will be doing for your daughter. I hope it all goes well!
what makes you different, makes you beautiful
