Why Some People Have Worse Skin After Laser Threatment? (photo)

I wish to improve my skin texture and lift it a little bit. I'm looking for a fraxel laser (Pixel, Total FX, Deep FX) However, according to realself replies about fractional lasers, some people says: "no effect at all" and some people says their skin is worse than before laser (they mention "orange peel" skin effect after laser). Therefore, I'm confused what to do/try to improve my skin texture. I can't tolerate if it will be worse. Why its happening and what is a solution? Skin pic added.

There are certainly risks with Laser Resurfacing and thus a properly trained physician should be consulted . These risks typically include infection or hypo or hyperpigmentation. Not everyone is a candidate.
