Recovering from Damage Caused by Fraxel Restore?

I had Fraxel restore on part of my face (the part just to the side of my nose) to generate collagen around a scar from a previous laser procedure to remove wart.

The doctor ran the laser 8 or 9 times across the area (area just to the side of nose), this was a Restore laser and I thought it was suppose to be gentle. It is 5 weeks out and I am still red/bronze glow in color.

The doc said it will take time and I wear sun block to prevent damage. How long of a recovery time? Have you ever heard of something like this? Area still itches and burns and I am worried about scarring and discoloration.
