There is no effective treatment for the brown spots. They definitely tend to improve with time. Laser treatment may help in a few cases. There is always the risk of white marks where the brown spots were!! Scars also tend to improve with time. If I were you I would adopt a wait and see attitude. If you are still worried see your doctor.
