Abstract

Argon laser photocoagulation has become the treatment of choice for vascular cutaneous lesions of the head and neck. In children under age 12 years the results have been poor in more than 50% of cases. This is the result of limited response and increased risk of hypertrophic scarring. Except for infants with complications of capillary hemangiomas of infancy we would not recommend argon laser treatment in children under the age of 12.
