Frequently Asked Questions
How does Lucere's CO2 Laser Resurfacing work?
The CO2 laser treatment is an ablative resurfacing treatment. Unlike non-ablative laser resurfacing, which stimulates skin tissue to produce more collagen and elastin, ablative laser resurfacing stimulates your body’s natural healing process to create new, fresh skin.
The CO2 laser treatment directs thousands of tiny dots of light energy at treatment areas on the skin. These very short pulses of laser energy vaporize aged and damaged cells to remove layers of aged skin. At the same time, the heat of this energy stimulates collagen growth in the lower layers of skin to produce a thicker, more resilient collagen layer. The result is deep skin rejuvenation with smooth, soft and even skin.
What is the Lucere CO2 Laser?
The Lucere CO2 Laser combines the effectiveness of traditional CO2 lasers with the safety of fractional laser treatments. Fractional laser resurfacing precisely targets treatment areas, so only a fraction of the skin is treated at a time. The non-treated skin adjacent to the targeted skin promotes faster healing. The Lucere CO2 Laser offers reduced downtime, faster healing, and better safety than traditional CO2 lasers, but also delivers more dramatic results than non-ablative laser resurfacing.
What can I expect during the procedure?
Before beginning the treatment, the treated area will be numbed so that you can have a comfortable experience. Lucere CO2 Laser Resurfacing is one of our most advanced lasers, so it is normal to experience moderate discomfort during the procedure. The treatment usually takes an hour or more, depending on the extent of the treatment area.
When will I see results?
Recovery from the Lucere CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment can take up to two weeks, but once the skin heals you will see visible improvement with time. Your skin tone will be more even, and the skin itself will be smoother, firmer and more youthful thanks to the removal of dull, damaged layers of skin and the rejuvenation of the collagen layer.
How long will results last?
Results can last for years, but they are not necessarily permanent as your skin will continue to age and may become damaged again. This is a normal part of aging. To maintain your results, avoid sun exposure and maintain good skincare. You will also want to follow up with less aggressive skin resurfacing treatments, such as our Fraxel or gentle Clear + Brilliant laser treatments.
How much does the Lucere CO2 Laser Resurfacing cost?
The cost of Lucere’s CO2 Laser Resurfacing depends on the size of the treatment area and can range from $1,499 to $3,999. A consultation with our experts will give you an accurate cost and treatment plan to meet your goals. For skin rejuvenation, 1 treatment can offer results that last years.
