My skin is not peeling, scabbing, or falling off after my laser scar removal, does it mean that its not working? (photo)

I have already had two treatments done on my skin specifically my legs. I had scars there since I was 8 (now 19) so I'm getting laser scar removal. I have dark skin and with the treatments i have gotten so far i had the redness, itching and swelling so a day after my treatment i have been using vitamin e oil. Week after the treatment i was told to use hydroquinone consistently i use it every other day, it just looks like my skin is getting darker.
