Wounds on the skin heal

Wounds on the skin heal, leaving dark spots which don't go away Hi I am a male 27 years old, hight 1.74m weight 94kg. I have a problem, every wound which heals on my skin leaves a dark spot in it s place. Those spots do not go away. As a matter of fact I have one that is over 2 years old (since when the problem started) I have Hypothyroidism and am perscribed to take TSH and T4. Also I am a smoker (10 years, thereabout). What could be the cause for these spots? Could it be one of the 2 mentioned above? What can I do to get rid of this problem?
