Treatments & Results
For skin rejuvenation 1-2 treatments will offer results in as soon as 2 weeks and can continue to improve for up to 6 months. For optimal results we suggest maintaining yearly. For conditions like acne scarring a series of treatments will be needed. Results can be maintained with less aggressive treatments.
You will have longer-lasting results by using a physical block sunscreen, avoiding sun exposure and committing to a medical-grade skincare routine.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Lucere's Fraxel Skin Resurfacing work?
Fraxel Laser treatments work by promoting your skin’s natural healing process. Using microscopic laser columns, the Fraxel Laser penetrates deep into your skin to stimulate your body’s production of collagen, producing a healthier appearance while replacing damaged skin cells with new, healthier cells. Since the Fraxel Laser only treats a portion of tissue at a time, the surrounding tissue remains intact to promote quicker healing.
What can I expect during the procedure?
Your skin will first be cleansed, followed by an application of a topical anesthetic ointment 60 minutes before your treatment.
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during their Fraxel laser procedure. At Lucere, your safety and comfort are our number one priority. That’s why we apply a topical anesthesia prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
In addition, cold air is used throughout the procedure for additional comfort. Following your treatment, it is normal for your skin to experience the sensation similar to that of a sunburn, but this typically diminishes within a few hours.
