Unhappy Please Help - Petechiae Fade Time...?

recently, I used a tanning bed for the first time ever - I am 36, and have very fair and sensitive skin. After 3 sessions, I developed two things - the first was a slightly raised rash which has disappeared, and the second is what I believe to be petechiae - small dots on my shins.
I have never had this problem before, and I suspect it happened as a direct result of my high-intensity tanning.
My question is: approximately how long does it take for petechiae to fade.?
I have searched the internet, and the only information I seem to find is, "it fades in time"...... it's very frustrating, because I am leaving for a trip to California in one week, and would very much like to know if I will be able to dress appropriately for the weather.....

Thank you so much......
