Damage caused to the Ravinok by Breen phasers

A phaser burn was a type of burn caused by a phaser.

In 2368, Jean-Luc Picard stated that there were no phaser burns found on the hull of the SS Vico, to which Data stated that the evidence pointed to a disruptor-style weapon attacking the Vico. (TNG: "Hero Worship")

In 2370, Jason Vigo suggested to Bok that he could create a phaser burn on his shirt and send it to Captain Picard, to try to convince him that Bok had killed him. (TNG: "Bloodlines")

After the shuttlecraft Sacajawea crashed on a planet, Chakotay saw phaser burns on the hull, which convinced him the shuttle had been shot down and had not been hit by lightning. (VOY: "Coda")

Veer suffered from a minor phaser burn to his upper thoracic region after being stunned with a phaser fired by Tuvok. (VOY: "Distant Origin")

Later on, a holographic version of The Doctor programmed by Seska tried treating Tom Paris for a second-degree phaser burn and instead gave him 20ccs of nitric acid, "a proverbial salt in the wound," according to The Doctor. Following this incident, Paris sarcastically suggested to Tuvok that they could next go to the mess hall and have the holographic Neelix burn his arm with a frying pan. (VOY: "Worst Case Scenario")

Later on, a Starfleet officer aboard the USS Prometheus had extensive phaser burns on his body after the ship was taken over by Romulans. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle")

In 2376, Maxwell Burke examined Seven of Nine on the USS Equinox and told her she had first-degree phaser burns and minor lacerations. (VOY: "Equinox, Part II")
