Brief Answer:
Yes, it is safe...

Detailed Answer:

Yes, Laser procedure is safe when done by trained expert.

Some of the serious side effects are results of accidents and not due to the procedure alone. Scarring and injuries are very rare when the procedure is done carefully.
Other side effects that you should know is that your skin will look and feel slightly different after the procedure. You can have mild redness and swelling after the procedure. The redness and swelling will resolve spontaneously over a couple of days.

Hope this helps. Write back for clarifications.
