Melanotan and Laser Hair Removal: Incompatible?

I’m just starting some laser hair removal on my back, the back of my neck, upper arms, shoulders, etc (hairy middle-eastern guy here). So far it’s going well and I’m committed to seeing the series of treatments through. I’ve also never used Melanotan II, but I’m considering giving that a try at LOW doses for a very moderate tanning effect. My question is whether the MTII would raise the risk of adverse effects/dark spots from the laser hair treatments? I know the laser light is tuned to go after hair, but my understanding is that the MTII can change the way the skin reacts to light in a range of ways.

Would be grateful for anyone’s thoughts, experience, etc. Thanks!
