Hi Fair Skin,

Lighter skin types such as yourself do very well with Fraxel repair laser treatment. We recommend the treatment for Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV.

 Choose your treating physician carefully and you should recover very well.

Good luck and be well.

There is usually, although exceptions exist, the lowest chance of pigmentation darkening with fair skin. Depending on what you want to accomplish, and your skin evaluation, your doctor might say that you are an ideal candidate.
