My daughter has 4 superficial hemangiomas. A small cluster on her back that isn't growing or anything, one on her forehead that grew fast and is puffy in the first month to two months, that seems to have slowed down. And two on her tummy. One much bigger than the other, but they are flat not raised. We started timolol last week, mostly for her forehead one. We aren't bothered by the others. In the first week we've noticed that it's starting to "deflate", it isn't as swollen. It's also faded in color. Used to be a dark angry reddish/maroon. Now, it's a lighter red/dark pink color with a bit of grey in it (the dr told us that's a great sign, and means it's slowed down). Timolol seems to be working for her
