If it hurts, then Houston you have a problem
You get your skin from your parents obviously. Without knowing your ancestors, no one can judge how your skin will react to light.
Having said that, its better to get less result than something like this. I also don't think that you can judge any laser ( I use NdYag 1064 as that has been shown to be the safest for nonwhite skin) after only one session.
I hope that your skin will improve. Listen to your body if it tells you it hurts. If it feels like fire, then this may happen.
