Contact your provider
If you had a burn from a laser procedure it is important that you reach out to your provider right away and get adequate treatment for your burn to avoid further complications. Good luck!
Redness Resolution with lasers (pulsed dye, Excel V)
I recommend getting a formal consultation with an expert in lasers. This can be improved with pulsed-dye V-Beam or Excel V lasers and microneedling/prp. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
How can I fade redness?
Hello, thank you for your question. One of the devices that specifically targets vascular (blood/redness) is the V-Beam. It is a laser, it is much more powerful than an IPL device for treating vascular issues. You can check in your area to see if this device is available. It is manufactured by Syneron/Candela and you can go on their website to "find a provider"

Without pictures it is difficult to let you know how these bothersome areas can be treated. If the burn marks are recent (1-2 weeks) they may fade on their own. If they have been there for longer, sometimes a topical bleaching cream can lighten their appearance. You should definitely let your provider know that these areas are bothering you and ask them to provide you a with treatment options.
Improving redness - Vascular laser
I would try a vascular laser such as Excel V or VBeam laser. I don't know exactly what the areas look like but other therapy might be needed such as topical steroids.
