Spending a lot of time under the hot summer sun can tan you skin, but that’s the last thing you should do while you’re undergoing a laser treatment. First, the laser adjusted for your skin tone and second, run the risk of getting burned, says Susan Taylor, M.D., dermatologist and author of “Reader’s Digest Guide to Skin Care: Professional Secrets and Natural Treatments for Glowing, Youthful Skin. ” A tan can also affect the absorption of the laser light which can cause the skin to discolor, according to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
