Black dots on the tongue. Can I go for laser treatment?

I have black spots on my tongue , covering the tip. I have had this all my life. I ve been told by a doctor not to worry, it is just pigmentation. I ve noticed lately that the spots are growing. It is embarrassing and I am self-conscious about it. Can I get laser surgery to remove the black pigmentation due to hyperpigmentation ?

i think you should not go for laser
your doctor is right to say dont worry
because there is no gurantee with lase
it can come again
and there are chances of fibrosis in normal tissue which can cause numbness of tongue and loss of taste in future
we should not panga in our body tiisues unless some situation arises in which we cant live if that surgery is not done
