Yes, the laser beam does not penetrate deep enough to go through your lip fat and muscle to get to the metal.  Some people may feel some heat, and we use soaked gauze to make it more comfortable for them.

It is perfectly safe to have a V beam laser treatment done on your face while you have metal braces on your teeth.  There will be no interaction.

Doing lasers when you have braces

Yes it's safe to do laser treatments when you have braces. Lasers near the mouth don't penetrate all the way through to affect the metal in your braces, so there are no issues.
