Hello
I would be pleased to answer your question.

If the Laser has touched the pigmented XXXXXXX , there is a chance that the beauty XXXXXXX might have lightened. However , it will not disappear and may become darker over a period of time . That means it will surely regain its color as the Laser used for Hair removal is not effective enough to permanently remove any pigmented XXXXXXX and the pigment grows back in the skin marks.

Thanks and Take care

Is there any way to darken it back, should I expose it to more sunlight or will it darken by itself?

Hello
Thanks for the reply .

No there is no method to darken the beauty XXXXXXX . You should give it its time to retain the color . Do not keep exposing it to sunlight to make it darker as it can result in cancer changes.
