Laser treatment is usually safe for pigmentation if got done by an expert with good experience of using laser but it can still lead to some side effects. In darker individuals there can be hyperpigmentation, worsening or recurrence of the skin condition for which laser is being done. These are unpredictable and can occur inspite of all the precautions. In some cases it may not be possible to get rid of complete pigmentation. Moreover multiple sittings are required. I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to clarify any further doubts. Regards
