Default Question for parents whose children have had laser treatment

Hi all, my five year old daughter had her first pulsed dye laser treatment last week. I am really concerned at this point because it actually looks worse!! Her hemangioma has been in the process of involuting and faded quite a bit but still had some lingering blood vessels and redness that we were trying to take care of with the laser. Now I am anxious because right now it looks like it did a few years ago in terms of the blood vessels and redness. I sure hope we didn't make things worse. If anyone can tell me what their child's looked like in the week following laser and beyond I would be very grateful!!
