Burn marks from laser treatment?
Hi there and thank you for your question. This does look like a burn from the laser hair removal treatment. You should call your provider immediately for how to care for the area. On the positive side, with the right treatment plan the skin will heal and the pigmentation (dark marks) will go away over a period of time. Best of luck!

That is definitely not a normal reaction to laser hair removal! You need to go back to the doctor who provided the service for treatment to minimize any permanent changes. It is not likely to scar (based on what I can see in the photo), but you may have pigment differences in that area compared to the rest of your skin. Early treatment of the area could help speed healing and decrease the risk of skin changes.

This is a burn indeed. I would seek immediate attention from your provider. I don't see blister which is a good sign. There will be pigmentation differences that can last several months, and possibly even longer. Treatment now will help prevent future problems or at least lessen the effects of the burn. Either the wrong laser was used or wrong settings. I'm sorry this has happened to you.

Yes you do have burn marks, however, you should be fine once treated. It will take time for the burn marks to disappear so give it at least 6 months. Please see your doctor to start treatment right away.
