In brief: Depends on the laser

There are many different types of lasers--they can be categorized as noninvasive or invasive.
In general, noninvasive lasers are not harmful to the skin and promote healthier younger skin. Invasive lasers can cause some thinning of the skin and increased sensitivity to the sun. Invasive lasers produce beautiful results and can make someone look 20 years younger but have more side-effects.
