Can palomar resurfacing cause fat loss, skin thinning under the eye - not the lower eyelid, but where dark circles are?

In brief: Usually not

You would have to burn deep to cause fat loss.

In brief: No.

Resurfacing lasers like palomar do not go deep enough to affect fat, but you are at an age where you are definitely going to start seeing loss of fat within the fat pads of the lower eyelid and cheek region.
Good news is that this can be fixed with hyaluronic acid fillers to replace that volume. It will also make your eyes appear brighter when you restore your volume in that area.
