So I went to the beach for a few hours and got a little burnt, not very badly. Usually itll go away within the next day or 2 leaving a tan, which it did, but then around 3 days later dozens of the dark spots appeared all over the areas where I got burnt. What are these and how do I get rid of them? Also I was looking into laser treatment for it, would that be a good idea??? Im worried the skin wouldnt go back to how it looked before and it could be a bad mistake. Im 15 so im pretty sure its not age spots
