Does profractional laser have any side effects?

Since it's a laser, I imagine there's gonna be some redness involved. What else should I expect other than that? Soreness, bruising? I'm planning to schedule a consultation soon, so I'm building the courage now. Anything to be afraid of?

You can expect to have some redness and swelling, but it is significant less so than a full ablative laser.  You will have to stay out of the sun for a few weeks, and expect there to be peeling as it heals.  DO NOT pick at the peeling skin as that can cause an uneven result.
