As you get older, you may notice your skin’s youthful texture and look begin to fade away. This is likely the result of collagen, soft tissue volume and moisture loss, sun exposure, and a number of other factors. Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of your skin and treat minor imperfections to leave you with a more radiant complexion. One of the most common questions we get from patients is “when will I see results after laser skin resurfacing?”
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
The newest advancement in the field of non-ablative, fractional skin rejuvenation is the FDA-cleared PicoSure Focus Laser Facial – available in Kansas City at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz. The PicoSure laser (the world’s first picosecond laser) delivers laser energy in ultra-short pulses, producing an outstanding effect on the skin by removing excessive pigmentation, erasing fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring, shrinking pores, while stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. The most remarkable advantage of the PicoSure Focus laser facial is the non-thermal effect (no significant heat) on the skin, which provides a truly gentle treatment. Unlike Fraxel and other fractional laser treatments, there is no need for anesthesia prior to the treatment, although we do provide patients with a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. And because there is only mild redness for less than an hour and no significant swelling, this is truly a NO DOWNTIME LASER SKIN TREATMENT. Although a series of three laser treatments are recommended for optimal results, patients will notice some improvements after the first PicoSure treatment.
Immediately after the PicoSure Focus Laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin will be red and may feel like a sunburn for a very short while. Most patients love the “PicoSure Glow” that is visible within 24 hours!

Good Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you are in good general health and looking for a safe and effective way to achieve a more radiant complexion, you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. We do not recommend this treatment if you have active acne. In this scenario, we can suggest an alternative solution.
