CoolGlide Vein Therapy - Dark Capillaries After Vein Treatment, is This Normal?

I've recently started getting broken capillaries...

I've recently started getting broken capillaries on my nos and face. After a while of using cover-up to reduce redness, I found out about the CoolGlide vein therapy and decided to try it.

This is the first kind of procedure I have ever had done, and although I was pleased with the immediate results, I am now unhappy with the darkened color of some of the capillaries, and hope it is not permanent.

I had CoolGlide Vein Therapy done two days ago on the sides of my nose and cheeks for broken capillaries that caused my skin to have a pinkish tone to it. I had no problems with the therapy and was happy with the results after it was over. The day after I noticed that one of the capillaries on my cheek has turned dark purple, and also a spot on the side of my nose (the crease where my nose meets my face). It looks worse than it had before I had the laser therapy done. It doesn't appear to be bruising, it's the actual capillary that's darkened. I called the esthetician's office and was told that this is "normal" and that it will "go away". I am just nervous now because it looks worse than what it was before I had tretament done. If this does not "go away," can it be treated?

If my results turn out how I would like them to be I WOULD recommend my provider...I am waiting fr final results to determine that.
