Redness on chest area even after 20 days post laser hair removal? (Photo)

Hi, I just had my 3rd session of diode laser hair removal on my chest. It's been 20 days after the treatment, and there are still several red patches persisting on my chest area. What is causing this? Is it likely to go away - completely or just fade? Thanks.

This is not normal and needs an evaluation. It is possible this is a skin condition that is not related to the laser. Prolonged redness after laser is a risk of getting PIH.
