Burns in bikini line

Thanks for your question and so sorry for your experience. The burns may leave hyperpigmentation (brown discoloration) that will have to be treated with topical hydroquinone and/or IPL (Intense pulsed Light) or similar pigment removal device. That is usually the worst case scenario.
