Bad hyperpigmentation on bikini area?

I've been plucking my pubic hairs since I was little, and stupidly picked at the ingrowns for a long time. I hate how my pubic area looks and I went to a dermatologist and she said the hyperpigmentation might be permanent. I refuse to believe that because I feel so insecure with it. I am planning on getting laser hair removal in the future but is there any way to get rid of the dark area? Thank you so much!
