Burned skin from Laser Hair Removal (Photo)

I just got a laser hair removal treatment and it was my first session. Now my cheeks and necks are full of brown scars. I have a big party coming up next month and I m scared now. My session is also close to my party. Can u please let me know if brown scars are normal and will go away with time ? If yes then how long.

Hyperpigmentation after laser hair removal

I would discuss your situation with your treating physician. If you have pigmentation after a laser treatment it is usually transient or temporary. However, it can persist for a long time if not treated with bleaching agents and topical steroid creams.
