Is it possible to have a laser treatment after I use self tan lotion?

While the Fraxel laser, a fractionated resurfacing laser, works differently from the aforementioned technologies, I would personally suggest you postpone treatment. The risk of having any real effect on your end result is minimal, however waiting for the majority of the self-tanner to fade can ensure less complication. Letting your skin return to its natural state will also allow you to better gauge your results, and see the true effect of the Fraxel laser. Be sure to consult with a board certified Dermatologist for pre and post treatment protocol; best of luck!

We use a 2940 Erbium for our fractional resurfacing and we have no problems with self-tanner.

I suggest that you remove the self tanner as much as possible through exfoliation before you have your laser treatment. For the best results you should discontinue the self tanner before you have a laser treatment. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist who is a specialist in lasers and cosmetic procedures.
