Default Laser or Surgery?

Good day!
My 21mo daughter has a round, 1/4" in diameter strawberry hemangioma on her cheek; it is raised about 1/16" off the surface of her face.
My question: if we go for 2-3 laser sessions, will the mark be gone completely or my daughter will need a surgery to get rid of the flesh that is now hemangioma? Is it wiser to do the incision, remove the hemangioma and be done with it at once?
Thank you kindly for answering.
