Hyperpigmentation: The red spots may be Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation if the pimple has fully healed. This will likely improve over time (all scarring will lighten with time). There are treatments that can improve the appearance, including creams like hydroquinone, steroid creams and laser treatments like laser genesis. See a dermatologist or cosmetic physician to learn more about treatment options.

Redness from pimple: It is best to let it fade. Cosmetic make up can cover it. If it had to be treated it could be treated with a pulse dye laser. The most important thing is to see your dermatologist for therapy of the acne so that you won't continue to get lesions.
