Default Laser treatment results

We had about 6-8 laser treatments with Dr. Connelly in Miami Florida for my daughter's hemangioma. We have been very happy with the results. Attached is a before and after.

Also, Dr. Connelly performs the procedure in her office, and therefore the cost is much, much less than if it were performed in a hospital.

Oh she looks wonderful!! You must be so happy the laser worked so well!
We LOVE Dr. Connelly... my daughter Valentina also had several lasers with her and we flew in from Tampa to see her every month for a year. Besides the laser, she managed the steroids, and did a wonderful job. Absolutely worth the trip. She's one of the nicest Drs I've met, and very knowledgable... I'll never forget the first time I called her. We had already had a few frustrationg experiences with other Drs and I called her desperate to get Val in soon because her H was growing very fast, and she said "come over right now". She was a godsend...

Default Very good job

I congratulate you for your nice girl. I have a baby of 1 year with a segmental facial superficial hemangioma, she is now on her 8 laser treatment but with not much results. Could you please tell me which kind of laser she was using? which fluence energy? using anestesia? thanks for your kind response.

Default Birthmark- laser treatment

Your daughter is so beautiful. I have a 16 month old daughter and she has a hemangioma on her face- right cheek. I finally got a referral from her pediatrician to see a pediatric dermatologist and we are going to be starting laser treatments shortly. Any information you can tell me would be greatly appreciated.
