Pigmentation under eyes
It is difficult to tell in the photo because you did not give a "before" photo to compare. Some patients with type IV skin have post-inflammatory pigmentation from the Fraxel laser. It depends both on the setting used and your natural skin color. I would return to your treating physician to discuss treatment which might range from bleaching creams with hydroquinones and topical vitamin C serums. Please let me know what your follow-up is. Be sure to use a lot of sunscreen as well.
