At 8 months post laser, your skin is fully healed, and you can use artificial tanning agent.  I would still suggest remaining out of the harmful UV rays of natural sunlight, and also suggest sunblock when you cannot avoid it.  Good Luck

by this point in time your skin should be completely healed, essentially as good as new, So, go ahead an do the spray tanning . its better that exposing it to the UV radiation
