Let's Add Aftercare
It's difficult to answer without a picture, but this sounds like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or reactive vessel growth that can result after treatment. It takes 3-6 months for color to resolve unless you use compression, pulsed dye laser and vitamin K oral and creams to help. I recommend following up with aftercare. Best, Dr. Emer.
