I would like to start my lower legs this year. I am aware of the risks surrounding sun exposure before/after laser hair removal, but I was wondering if it is fine to go ahead with it if I religiously apply sunscreen before exposing my lower legs to the sun.

Not something we can say online a priori. It all depends on how much darker you get. You can apply tons of sunscreen, but in the end, settings are determined by your skin type and how tan you are.

The first 4 treatments are very important. I would wait to start until you can commit to being pale at least for those so that the most effective settings can be used.

Hm, I never thought of it that way... I guess you can still get a bit of a tan under sunscreen.
