Laser burns

The laser hair removal does feel a bit burny after the treatment. You are seeing some burnt marks. This can happen if the area was exposed to the sun and you're tan. Also, if the settings were stronger. These marks will fade and go away on its own. If you have more treatments to do then let your laser provider know what happened.
