Without a photo it's a bit difficult to tell, but it sounds like neovascularization. This a big word for "new blood vessels." Essentially your body has developed an overabundance of blood vessels at the site of the laser treatment. Often this will require a different laser to treat (V-beam PDL). Good luck, Dr. M
It's hard to answer this without a picture. It sounds like you sustained a burn. I recommend meeting with a cosmetic dermatologist to discuss scar treatment and any future laser tattoo removal treatments, if necessary. Best, Dr. Emer
