Removal of unwanted hair is one of the most commonly sought cosmetic solutions. Increasingly, both men and women are turning to intense pulsed light (IPL) as an alternative to traditional methods such as shaving, waxing and electrolysis. In most cases, IPL-associated side effects are mild and transient (erythema, edema, hypomelanosis); however, serious undesired reactions may occur. This report presents a case of superficial first and second degree burns after IPL treatment.
