Burns from IPL - visit a physician

+1

There are some things that can be done depending upon the discoloration left from the burn - topicals like hydroquinone, and additional very light IPL done by a very experienced team!, that can be done to help with burns from prior IPL. Visit a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon's office for an evaluation.
