Does hyper pigmentation after laser treatment ever go away?

I am 37, caucasian, female. 5 weeks ago I had a Q-switched laser type treatment for melasma stains on my forehead and upper lip. The treatment was strong and left me with purpura in the areas treated. I have applied an antibiotic cream and protected my face from the sunlight. Now, four weeks later, I have much darker sings, especially on my upper lip, than I had before the treatment. They say it is normal and it should clear up but I don't see any improvements. Can you help? I attach a picture of my face how it looks now.
