Brown skin pigmentation on Labia minora and vaginal opening. Can laser lighten these patches?

I have an area of brown skin pigmentation on my labia minora right side,going from the edge of the labia inwards,and also a small patch on the right labia minora,also a few patches around the opening of vagina ,but only on the opening.I think i may have had the left-side patches for a few years. I heard that lasers can lighten them, is that true?

There are lasers which can lighten it.
But lasers also half side effect. The commonest side effect is post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. So you may land up with increased pigmentation.
In my view please dont go for lasers.
Thank you
