How to Refresh Your Skin

How to get younger-looking Skin FAST! (The Lucere ThermaFrax really changed me…)

Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic’s Skin Experts are dedicated to transforming the lives of our beautiful clients. While we are committed to enhancing beauty, one of our main motivations is to restore the confidence & self-esteem of every client who walks through the door. 

Terri is a Registered Nurse and was in dire need of a skin “pick-me-up” and knew that Lucere was the perfect place to make it happen. Before becoming a Nurse, Terri spent many years of her life as a flight attendant. Travelling from different locations & flying high altitudes exposed her skin to lots of sunshine that can cause skin damage, premature aging, & pigmentation. Terri didn’t realize the importance of sunscreen back then (oh nooooo!!!!)  

At 47 years old, Terri wanted to address her skin concerns, including sun damage, while reversing signs of aging. Of course, she knew Lucere was the perfect place to jump-start her skin journey. 

A Unique Skin Treatment Plan

At Lucere, we love getting to know you & your skin goals. When Terri had a consultation with our Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Zaki Taher, a solid plan was developed to ensure that she would have all her concerns addressed. Dr. Taher was enthusiastic about helping Terri achieve incredible results & it was easy for her to put her trust in our Skin Experts! 

At the beginning of every consultation, we like to perform the Lucere Skin Analysis which evaluates the skin using advanced technology. It allowed us to see Terri’s sun damage, fine lines & wrinkles, texture, spots, pore size & more! 

Lucere Skin Analysis

By seeing all this information, our Skin Experts can see the extent of each concern & analyze which treatments will help the most. At Lucere, we actually have over 30 lasers which help us customize your treatment completely; we do not simply use 1 laser for everyone. Dr. Taher concluded that Terri needed one of our most potent combination treatments, the Lucere ThermaFrax. This treatment will help to address signs of aging, pigmentation & texture! Terri was very excited to undergo this process of transforming her skin! She booked her treatment for soon after. 

Lucere’s Thermafrax Treatment

Terry’s journey began with this combination laser treatment. Our lasers use proven technology & are performed by leading experts in the industry. The Lucere ThermaFrax combines Thermage Skin Tightening & Lucere Fraxel Skin Resurfacing. These two treatments are combined because the benefits complement each other perfectly & can give spectacular results…which spoiler alert: are amazing for Terri. 

We first performed the Thermage Skin Tightening which involved a radiofrequency laser that uses heat to stimulate collagen production. Terri described the treatment to be warm, comfortable & easy! 

Thermage and Fraxel laser treatment

The next step was Fraxel Skin Resurfacing which uses a laser to promote the skin’s natural healing process. This will particularly help Terri with her pigmentation from sun exposure, texture, pore size, & fine lines & wrinkles. 

Before starting with the laser, we use a topical numbing cream to make the experience as comfortable as possible. The laser uses microscopic laser columns to penetrate the skin & stimulate collagen, which will replace damaged skin cells with new, healthier cells. Terri loved this treatment! And although a little bit “spicy” at some times, overall, it was a comfortable treatment for her where she could feel it working right away! 

ThermaFrax treatments procedure

The Fraxel Skin Resurfacing treatment has a little bit of downtime, where Terri experienced redness for a few days, followed by some sloughing of the skin, revealing a fresh new layer after about 1 week. It was very important for her to apply sunscreen every day during the healing process!

After healing, she was stunned & amazed at the results! What we saw was tighter, lifted skin with an overall younger appearance. There was an improvement in pigmentation and texture as well. The best part? She will continue to see results for up to 6 months after the treatment, as collagen will continue to build & form. 

Have a look below! Terri’s skin age went down 6 years after this treatment, and is 9 years under her actual age.

Lucere’s Double Chin Treatment

After seeing such incredible results, Terri wanted to take the opportunity to address another concern she had. A lot of people tend to collect stubborn fat in the chin & neck area, and the same went for Terri. At Lucere, we offer a special treatment exactly for this concern: the Lucere Double Chin Treatment, which uses expertly inject deoxycholic acid, a natural acid produced by your body that digests & dissolves fat. 

This treatment helps dissolve fat cells, leaving you with a more contoured lower face & tighter, more defined jawline. 

It is a quick treatment and only took about 15 minutes of Terri’s time. She experienced about 1 week of swelling, which is completely normal & signifies the treatment is working! Full results were seen after 6 weeks. We usually recommend our clients have 2-3 treatments, spaced roughly 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Terri only had one treatment so far and has had incredible results!

Anti-Wrinkle and Filler Injections Performed by Professionals

Terri has always been great at keeping up with her Anti-Wrinkle & Filler treatments. The Lucere Anti-Wrinkle Treatment helps to soften expressions by using a neuromodulator (like Botox) to relax the muscles. Filler is used to restore lost volume & define features. 

Remember, it is vital to have an experienced and expert injector perform these treatments. Our Expert Injectors in South Edmonton & Downtown Edmonton have an incredible track record & are ready to help every client feel their best.

The Final Resultsdouble chin treatment before and after final results

Terri’s transformation is one for the books! She was completely overjoyed when seeing these final results; she described her experience as life-altering & marvelled at her own transformation. Using proven technology, Dr. Taher & our Skin Experts were able to restore her youthful glow, address her concerns & raise her confidence.
