FUE does create unfavorable white dot scars
Hair Transplants left white spots after FUE
If the white dots are scars from the follicle removal sites, these are not likely to change once the scars are mature..which typically occurs after several months.

FUE and Micro Pigmentation Tattooing
Adding body hair to the dots might help; however, the white may remain. How long has it been since the surgery? If it has persisted beyond two years, you should consider micro pigmentation tattooing. If it is still early, it is always a good idea to wait at least two years since it may improve to your satisfaction in that time period.

FUE can create white dot scars
Unfortunately you are experiencing one of the unadvertised results of follicular unit extraction. Anytime the skin is cut there will be a scar - no ifs, ands, or buts about it. In the case of strip harvesting this will be a linear scar. In the case of FUE, there will be white dots left behind. These white dots are hypopigmented areas and will never fill back in. You have a couple of options. First is medical tattooing of the area. Second, you can perform a laser resurfacing procedure to lighten the surrounding skin and make the white dots blend better. Third, longer hair will cover the scar. These and a couple of other options are all subject to your particular problem and skin color. I would recommend talking with a plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon who performs hair transplants to further discuss your options.
