SPF, time and QSL
Sun protection and time will be the best healer. The use of lasers in low power settings can help, or a test patch with higher settings on one of these spots. Sunscreen is essential. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane, Australia.
Dark scars and lasers
I would use Melarase PM cream, IPL Limelight or PDL, and light chemical peels.
I believe that there are better options than liquid nitrogen for what your desired goal was. While liquid nitrogen is extremely cost efficient with a shallow learning curve to use, it can leave a prolonged scar. It will improve with time!

This phenomenon is actually quite common. The dark spots are a result of trauma to the skin from freezing, but rest assured, they will fade with time. Be sure you are using sunscreen diligently every day, whether you are going in the sun or not. Talk to your doctor as a prescription bleaching cream may also speed up the healing.

Another option ion to treat the scar is a pulsed dye laser given the vascular component of the scarring. This should speed up resolution
