Unhappy liquid nitrogen on scars? HELP!

I am a 25 year old Indian female, with light brown skin. I had some scars on my left leg (really, i have no idea from what), they are smooth and about a penny in size. My derm put liquid nitrogen on a few sites, which are now white on the inside with the brown edging evident. It looks so much worse! And, when I went in for my follow up visit, she asked what i wanted to do now, since it would be my call regarding the fact that there is a risk of this hypopigmentation. Well, how am I supposed to know? I feel so bad thinking that I made my not so bad scars worse. My question is: are there any treatments that can remedy this at all? Is liquid nitrogen on the edges (my derm's suggestion) a good idea...I know it is unpredictable, but any thoughts would be appreciated.PLEASE!! t.

Also, there are three doctors at this office. One of whom the office is named for. Should I just make an appointment with her as another opinion?
