When fixing hail damage with Paintless Dent Repair does it effect the paint job down the road?

My husband's car was recently damaged in a hail storm and the insurance adjuster gave us a quote based on Paintless Dent Repair if it was repaired at the collision center where it was taken for the estimate.

Would it be better to have the car repaired by replacing some of the damaged areas and repainted?
