Thank you for sharing your question.  There are possible side effects with every laser.  These include burning, scarring, temporary redness, and skin discoloration.  The risks are very low, but are still possible.  If you are being treated by a Doctor who has been performing laser treatments for Rosacea for a while you should be fine.  Risks are lower with a properly trained Doctor with experience.  I hope this was helpful to you.
