Burn Marks to forearm post laser hair removal using IPL..

Hi! I had my first laser hair removal (full arms) yesterday. The tech said she was using IPL. I'm Asian with light brown skin and dark hair. The right arm looks okay but I have these burn marks to the top of my left forearm. Now I couldn't go out because I look like grilled steak! She gave me a tube of neosporin before I left to apply to the area. I've also applied cold compress and aloe vera because I was initially feeling some burning sensation. She said the marks are temporary and should disappear within 24 hours. But they look worse than yesterday to me. Will these marks go away?! What can I apply to the area to help with the healing process? Please help...   Thanks.
