Will the dark spots fade or are they permanent?
I was burned during a laser hair removal treatment on my face.

Burns Require Aftercare--See a Cosmetic Dermatologist
I'm not sure when you had your treatment. I recommend following up with a cosmetic dermatologist for wound care in order to prevent scarring. I recommend using silicone gel with growth factors. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Color changes with laser or IPL
Lightening and darkening color changes are known side effects with laser, especially in a darker or recently sun-exposed skin. Darkening in general responds well to prescription lightening agents applied as cream for several weeks. You may want to wait for 7-10 days though before any such measure.
Burned from laser hair removal on face
I don't know the time frame. I'm sorry this has happened. You need to make sure proper skin care is done to ensure the best results. Depending on skin type and degree of burns, PIH is possible as is hypopigmentation.
