In brief: Caution with laser

Any laser treatment can cause problems with someone with more darkly pigmented skin.
These people are more prone to problems with pigmentation after laser treatments. In general, a non-ablative laser is much less likely to cause pigmentation problems than an ablative treatment. You should discuss these issues with your surgeon and chose best alternative.

In brief: Can be safe

I do treat lot of dark colored skin with fraxel or even active fx.
But you need to have an experienced doctor.
