Laser hair reduction is a common practice that utilized light-based therapy to prevent future hair growth. Complications following laser hair reduction treatment include thermal burns, which may lead to hyper- or hypopigmentation, hair stimulation, scar or transient erythema of treated areas. There have been very rare reports of persistent urticaria following laser hair reduction. In this report, we present a patient who developed persistent urticaria with severe pruritus in the areas treated with laser hair reduction.
