Fractional co2 resurfacing full face/neck question..pls help!!

I just had fractional co2 on Tuesday, its now Sunday. My face looks great slightly red and mostly peeled. The question is my neck. Its still very red in places and tight & uncomfortable..I'm scared b/c my neck wrinkles which weren't bad look worst when I move certain ways?!! I'm 43 in good health and just needed a boost. I just wanted neck tightening for mild laxity. I'm hoping this will improve w/time??? Is this normal as the neck is more sensitive? My PS is world renown and very good. He did one pass on neck at lower frequency of course..pls help if you have knowledge in this area..Idont see him again for a few days..thx
