Does laser hair removal have any negative symptoms on the skin if it is done on the face and does it really work?

In brief: Possibly

Laser hair removal uses a laser. The rsk of burning does exist.
Change in pigmentation is also a risk. The darker your skin the greater are these risks.

In brief: Atrophy pilosebaciou

Ongoing laser treatments may cause atrophy of the pilosebacious (hair follicle and oil gland) unit with mild degrees of skin involutional changes.
In some instances it may produce lightened skin pigmentation.
