That sounds normal to me. We have had numerous laser treatments for our daughter's hemangioma, both before her surgery and then after surgery to clear up some residual blood vessels. Each time, it looked bad for a week or more after laser - very dark purpley bruised and swollen. But after a couple weeks, it began to fade. Our doctor actually told us such bad bruising post-laser meant the laser had been effective in reaching and clotting the blood vessels so it was a good sign. So don't worry!
