This does not sound like a hemangioma. Have you had a CT, MRI, or arteriogram, or do they just keep lasering? It is possible you have an arteriovenous malformation (avm), whose growth can be triggered by hormonal activity, such as puberty and pregnancy. You should go to an interventional radiologist to have this checked out, not a dermatologist. AVMs are serious and can develop and progress, causing pain, nerve damage, and even heart problems.
