Dark marks on skin

Hi

I have had a few pimples on my cheeks, and I decided to pierce them, as a result this has left dark spots on my skin/cheeks.
Is there something I can use to remove these dark marks? (marks caused as a result of piercing pimples?).

Are there any facial creams I can use? I am an african woman. How long should I wait until I see results? Most facial creams (Neutrogena Visibly Even Night Concentrate), say there would be visible difference in 14 days?

Reduction of this type of marks will require some time time - often as much as 6-12 months. Try Neostrata's pigment lightening jel, or ask your doctor for a prescription for a mild hydroquinone crm.
