NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. – A combination of propranolol and laser is more effective than propranolol alone for infantile hemangiomas, and rapamycin can improve pulse die laser results for port wine stains.

Meanwhile, lasers hurt, so general anesthesia is in order for children as long as they’re older than 6 months.

Those are just a few of the pearls Dr. Kristen Kelly, a University of California, Irvine, professor of dermatology and surgery, shared at the Summit in Aesthetic Medicine. Dr. Kelly explained the latest developments in an interview at the conference, held by Global Academy for Medical Education.
