Awful! Don't recommend it all! I did it to get rid of acne and ended up with both cheeks and forehead w/hyperpigmentation and now the dr. both shrug their shoulders and say they have done their best to get rid of the problem. It's nice that they can just look the other way, and say they are no longer responsible for the damage, they are saying I had melasma when I came in to see them originally but I scrapbook and I've got untouched photos (upclose) and I DIDN'T HAVE MELASMA!

So not worth it, please don't do it, no matter what type of skin you have. I am dark (Hispanic) and although I quizzed the drs about it, they were so casual about it.

I wouldn't just get the opinion of one dr. Get several! Ask about their experience with the lasers. Many docs just go for a one day training. Ask to see pictures of all skin types. Ask for info on dark skinned individuals that they've worked on.
