Dark Splotches After IPL Photofacial

I got my first IPL photofacial last thursday. It's sunday night. How long before these horrible dark splotches disappear? Are these marks normal? Many of the circular marks look like they're burns from the "wand" and most of these spots weren't there before. I was told I'd have mild redness and some freckles would be darker before peeling off. My whole face looks terrible and I feel ugly. When will this go away?
