How do I get rid of dark spots on my legs caused by pimples?

How do I get rid of dark spots on my legs caused by pimples?

Skin discoloration: Any sun exposure will continue to keep the dark patches noticeable. Your best option is sunscreen or long pants or skirts to keep the sun away. It is not common to have pimples on your legs, so you might want to investigate if the breakouts are from sensitivity to a fabric, a detergent or softener. Sweat can cause a rash. Don't pick at any breakouts as that will only increase the pigmentation.

Hair follicles: Those dark spots are the hair follicles: the tiny holes that the hairs grow out of. After you remove the hair, the follicle is still alive, and starts to grow a new hair. The holes/follicles remain, and that is the dark spot you see.

How do I get rid or prevent dark spots where the hair follicle was on my legs from shaving? I've tried diff. Shavers and creams. Nothing works. Help

Nothing: Shaving does not remove the hair follicle, so the pigment still remains. Laser hair removal of the dark hairs can kill the follicle and therefore get rid of the dark spots.
