In brief: Time

Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation goes away in a couple of months.
If you are hard-core you can experiment with over-the-counter hydroxyquinone creams. Most people would probably say this is not worth the trouble and nuisance, but it's your decision.

In brief: IPL/ cosmetic laser

You can also use hydroquinone cream. Definitely see a physician to help you select the right treatment.
