What is the best treatment for dermal hyper-pigmentation in dark-skinned patients?

Hello, I had laser hair removal 2 years ago on my beard. I had no issues except for one spot that has since become and remained hyper-pigmented. It has even seemed to have got worse since then. I've previously tried Obagi - albeit, incompletely. I'm currently on Obagi again. Is it possible that only lasers can treat this?

There are many options like VI peels/salicylic acid peels, clear + brilliant, microneedling/prp, skin care. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with experience in pigmentation treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.
