My daughter has a port wine stain/vascular mark on her leg. It goes from the bottom of her foot up to her knee in a spotty pattern. She is currently on her 2nd laser treatment (at 19 months old). The reason we went ahead and did it now was for several reasons, mostly being that the dr. told us that the younger skin responds better to laser treatments, etc. I also wish I could predict the future and know whether or not the marks would bother her or not when she gets older. We decided to go ahead with treatment since we already had a hemangioma removed last year by this same doctor and trust him fully.

Let me know if you want any info about the laser treatments!
