The Fraxel re:pair laser may leave visible dots temporarily on oily skin.
Medical Microneedle Therapy Helps To Even Out Pigmentation & Texture Problems
Medical microneedling therapy, using either the manual Dermaroller or the automatic Dermapen, both of which are used for treating irregular skin texture and blotchy pigmentation, would be an option to consider for dealing with this problem should it come to that. I have been performing skin needling of both kinds for about fifteen years with gratifying results for these kinds of issues. Usually a series of two four treatment sessions are required for optimal results, but fortunately these treatments are accompanied by little downtime and most people can return to normal activities the following day. I recommend that you search the archives of Realself.com for more information and details on this approach.
Fraxel and healing
Fraxel is a great laser for pigmentation and scars. It is unclear which setting you had and for which indication. If you still have marks three months later I would recommend you return to your treating physician for examination.
