Skin pigmentation and Fraxel
Since ingrown hairs are the source of your issues, I would recommend starting with laser hair removal first and then proceeding with Fraxel
Control hair first, than pigemntation

You have a great question and the answer is very important for a great deal of my patients. Dark skin (type III or darker) needs to be treated with distinct and special lasers. There is a special laser hair machine called the Gentle Yag which is excellent for darker skin types and is gentle enough to treat your skin. I would definitely recommend that you receive the laser hair first. Secondly, while Fraxel is a fabulous laser, I would not recommend it for your skin type or condition. I also would recommend a thorough skin examination to determine the cause of the hair growth. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these lasers and these skin conditions.
