Default Imiquimod with laser treatment

16 year old daughter just started this treatment,she has had
several laser surgeries over the years that lightened her
portwine stain quite a bit,but when she went through puberty
it got darker. Has anyone done the imiquimod and laser?
And good results?

Hi and welcome!

I can't remember ever hearing of someone using imiquimod and laser therapy together. I always thought that treatment was only for hemangiomas.

Is her doctor going to try that? Where is her pws located?

Please write to Dr. Nelson... he does use a lot of new techniques that most laser experts are not using to get max. clearing. I would highly recommend getting his opinion.
