Can You Ever Have Too Many Laser Treatments?

I know someone who has been getting a Pearl laser treatment every January and then a series of Laser Genesis every spring. She's been doing that for a couple of years. She also had Thermage once in between the Pearl and Genesie. Do you think she is doing more harm than good in the long run? Or is it ok for her to continue and not be concerned about damage?

Some laser systems are designed for regular, repeated use. Some laser systems are designed for one-time use. Consult a board-certified dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon about the risks,benefits, and limitations of any laser or light-based treatment.
