In brief: Potentially yes
Lasers can be used to reduce or remove brown spots and vessels and to improve skin texture.
They are very effective that way in brightening one's complexion and we use them every day with great results. Of course there are many variables such as sun exposure, skin color, underlying conditions, laser choice, etc. That will determine the overall short term and long term success of the treatments.

In brief: Yes
Depends on what laser but the right laser does help to remove discolorations, make the skin look clearer, healthier, and "brighter".
There are lasers such as ktp, nd:yag, pulsed dye, ipl (intense pulsed light) that target pigment and hemoglobin (red in blood vessels), removing sun damage making it look brighter and more youthful.
