Use of retin-A cream and bleaching creams like hydroquinone can help. See your laser provider.

It looks as though you've developed some postinflammatory hyperpigmentation which is not uncommon after ablative laser treatment in darker skin types. There is a bleaching cream you can apply to help fade this out and it's very important to use a sunscreen every single day to protect it. Even without treatment it should eventually fade provided you use the sunscreen.
