Thanks for your query.  You can apply tacrolimus cream over the hypo pigmented patches and observe for a while. You should apply proper sun block and moisturize it well. If you have uneven sides, you can get fat grafting done to even out the sides and for the scars you can consider surgical dermabrassions. You can consult a plastic surgeon for better result. Hope it helps.

Problem from a laser, now what?

It is hard to say what is going on and what to do without pictures. Hypopigmentation is a very difficult problem to fix. I would try PRP and microneedling. Possibly using the Infini is helpful.
