A 22-year-old female asked:
Is there a laser skin lightening treatment available in the us that can make brown skin into pale skin throughout the whole body? what is it called?

No: Browner color is fine, peachier color is fine, and everyone else's color is fine. We do not have a laser booth for darker people to hop into, turn on a few buttons, and hop out a hour later with a lighter shade of skin. You can do the opposite and get a total body spray tan... but it's hard to make that look natural. Also, why the desire for a different color? Is it for fun, as in using make-up?
