Pale skin and laser, is it ok?

Recommended Posts

I got sunburn quite easily, it is hard for me to have suntan. Can this be bad for laser, or this is totally different mechanism and does not matter?

I know of many pale skin individuals who do lasers with no problems. The reported problems are on the opposite end - the darker skin individuals (like mine) who have a higher risk of hyperpigmentation. If you're worried, the derm could do a spot test (it is usually done anyway, but you could remind him/her).
