as long as you´re not using some crappy device or broken vst, there won´t be any problems.
you can do it with a compressor (decreasing volume at any place that´s louder than the comp´s threshold), or manually via volume automation (=> google).
depending on the song, recorded track, and many more things, i sometimes do more than a hundred automation steps in a song. If done well, it´s certainly an improvement
