Is laser genesis suitable for someone with pigments history?

Laser Genesis & Melasma
The wavelength of the laser genesis, 1064, is actually what is used to treat hyper pigmentation such as melasma. I would suggest that you schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to be assessed in person and discuss your best options.
Laser Genesis has broad use across skin colors but not all skin conditions
If you have been diagnosed with Melasma, Laser Genesis might not be the best choice since it "can" trigger a recurrence of Melasma.
Heat-based devices all have the potential to wake up sleeping pigment cells, so careful selection in treatment choice is always more of a chore for those with high pigment skin or hormonal Melasma.
See a physician with a wide range of treatment options for rejuvenation so that you have the option of the least pigmentation response.
Yes, safe if performed correctly
The wavelength is similar for vascular and also pigment namely 1064, so yes, if performed correctly, absolutely safe. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
