Burns as a Complication of Laser Hair Removal
This is very unfortunate. It appears you have superficial burns as a complication of the laser hair procedure. This happens as a result of too much energy (heat) is taken up by the outermost layer of skin (the epidermis). It will likely take several months to a year to improve the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Consult immediately with a board-certified dermatologist or other expert. I suggest searching the online directory for a physician who is a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Best of luck.
