Depends what it is: "Black dots" on the face can be various things. They can be moles, freckles, sun damage, black heads, or seborrheic keratoses. Freckles and sun damage can be treated with a laser. Black heads can be treated with acne medication. Seborrheic keratoses can be treated with electrodessication or liquid nitrogen. I would recommend asking a dermatologist about the best treatment options for you.
