Burns post IPL
These are definitely burns from the imprints of the IPL.
You have a dark skin type so it's safer to be extra careful with these treatments. It is also a good idea to prepare your skin with a bleaching agent such as Hydroquinone before end after the treatment.This will heal but you may have some pigment changes after.
I would go back to the provider and show them what is going on.
Burns after IPL
These are indeed burns. The fact that you have experienced burns from an IPL and the odd pattern in which they appear is certainly not a normal response. I would followup with the office that performed the laser for resolution.
