Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic was built on the principle of enhancing beauty and inspiring confidence. Our beautiful client Cheryl came to Lucere with the intention of regaining her confidence, after years of giving herself selflessly to others. After many years of working to support her family, Cheryl dedicated herself to caring for her sick husband until his passing.
Upon losing her husband, Cheryl had the time to reflect, and unfortunately, she wasn’t viewing herself in the best light. She felt that for most of her life, she gave herself completely to taking care of her husband and children, that she lost herself in the process. She no longer felt confident looking in the mirror.
In a sit down with us, she explained that her “face always looked tired, just not bright and vibrant anymore.” This really bothered Cheryl because she felt much younger on the inside than she did on the outside. She explained to us that her tired look bothered her and lowered her confidence altogether. It wouldn’t matter if she was putting makeup on, she didn’t feel like most people should feel when they look at themselves in the mirror.
Time for an Extreme Skin Makeover
Extremely unhappy with her tired look, Cheryl decided that she wanted a major change. She had heard about the experts at Lucere, and decided to book a consultation with our Board-Certified Dermatologist and his team of skin experts. She was able to talk us through her struggles and motivations, and also what she was hoping to achieve.
Understanding what bothered Cheryl and what was making her feel less confident about herself helped our experts determine the right course of action. Lucere was able to curate a customized treatment plan that would help Cheryl achieve her results, enhance her look, and ultimately, help her to regain her confidence.
Cheryl explained to us that she wasn’t happy with her tired, aged look. Upon assessing her skin, our experts determined that she needed a specific combination of treatments that would powerfully transform her skin. This is known as the Lucere Transformation. It was decided that Lucere Skin Resurfacing would help Cheryl’s skin with regaining skin health and quality by eliminating textural irregularities, balancing her uneven skin tone, and restoring brightness to her skin, amongst other benefits.
Our experts decided that this would be combined with Lucere Skin Tightening to help Cheryl’s skin regain tightness and firmness. Using state-of-the-art technology and expertise, we would be able to help stimulate collagen and elastin production in her skin to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, expertly injected Botox and Filler would further help us with fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to restore the natural contours and volume that Cheryl had lost with age.

Time to Reverse the Effects of Time and Aging
Once Cheryl’s personalized treatment plan was designed and explained to her, and with her approval, it was time to get started! Cheryl explained to us that she felt guilty starting her treatments because it had been so long since she did something for herself. It took some time, but she quickly decided not to feel guilty and wanted to embrace this journey. She was finally doing something for herself and putting herself first.
The Lucere Transformation is where we treat our clients based off of our philosophy that the best skin of your life if achieved through committing and dedicating yourself to a series of combination treatments. This is what will ultimately provide you with the results you dream of. For Cheryl, this included combining two laser treatments, Lucere’s Skin Resurfacing and Skin Tightening, along with expertly injected Botox and Filler.
Lucere’s Skin Resurfacing Treatment
It was decided that Cheryl would start with Lucere’s Fractora Microneedling treatment, or as we like to call it, Microneedling on steroids! This treatment is a powerful skin resurfacing option that helped Cheryl to restore her skin’s natural radiance. It was also able to improve her overall complexion, while reducing some textural irregularities her skin faced.
Our Fractora Microneedling treatment can really help with slowing down the effects of aging. The power of this treatment is that is uses advanced radio frequency (RF) technology, that delivered heat energy to Cheryl’s skin. Using our expertise, we can safely and gently deliver this heat energy through various small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. By stimulating her natural collagen process through a series of treatments, Cheryl was definitely pleased when she began noticing a more youthful appearance.
Cheryl was happy that this treatment was minimally invasive and only took about 2 hours to complete altogether. As expected, Cheryl did experience some redness of her skin for about 48 hours following her treatment. She noticed some dryness for a week after, but it was definitely well tolerated compared to the downtime with more invasive, surgical procedures.
The beauty of this skin resurfacing treatment is that we were able to also treat Cheryl’s upper and lower eyelid area, as well as the crow’s feet area around her eyes. This helped ensure healthy skin quality all over her face. Like most of our clients, Cheryl noticed visible improvements after a series of treatments. It took about two weeks to see more immediate results, but the real magic happened in the months following her treatment, when her skin began producing more collagen beneath the skin’s surface. This resulted in a more rejuvenated look and an improvement of Cheryl’s wrinkles.
Dr. Zaki Taher expertly injected Botox and Filler to give Cheryl a more youthful, rested look.
Lucere’s Skin Tightening Treatment
As Cheryl had gotten older, the collagen production in her skin had naturally declined, which was the reason behind her loss of skin firmness and the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. In order to further stimulate her collagen and elastin production, our experts decided that a series of TempSure Skin Tightening treatments would help Cheryl achieve a more lifted, refreshed look. This would be one factor to help with the tired look she wasn’t happy with.
Cheryl was happy that our Skin Tightening treatment was non-invasive and had no downtime. She also found this treatment to be quite comfortable. Our experts used gentle and safe radio-frequency energy to heat Cheryl’s skin within a certain range, in an effort to trigger a natural response for her skin to produce more collagen. These new collagen fibers were now tighter and denser. This helped further reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and left Cheryl with tighter, younger-looking skin.
This step in Cheryl’s journey was all about improving the appearance of lax, saggy skin. Not only did Lucere’s Skin Tightening improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on Cheryl’s forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet and smile lines, but it also helped improve her jawline definition too.
Expertly Injected Botox and Filler
Lasers using proven technology and expertise are important to improving overall skin quality. But at Lucere, we believe combining these treatments with expertly injected Botox and Filler are what will take your results from great to absolutely stunning! Our Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Zaki Taher, took a very customized approach to injecting Cheryl. Using advanced injection techniques and premium products, Dr. Taher achieved amazing results that suited Cheryl’s natural features.
The purpose of Botox is to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while softening expressions for a more rested, youthful look. Lucere is proud to offer premium brands of neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport and Nucieva. Botox helped Cheryl further achieve a reduction of lines and wrinkles around her forehead, softening her frown, and minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet around her eyes.
Dr. Taher then used expertly injected Filler to restore the structure and definition of Cheryl’s features, while also restoring the natural contours of her face. This led to a more enhanced, youthful appearance for Cheryl. A combination of Botox and Filler really helped Cheryl achieve her desire for a less tired appearance, and instead, give her a rested, happier look that made her feel young again. Cheryl expressed to us that she trusted Dr. Taher whole-heartedly, because she appreciated his sense of calmness and trusted his impressive track record.

The Final Verdict
Cheryl could not believe her results, and jokingly told us that she wishes she took advantage of these treatments a long time ago. She explained to us that she was feeling low, but now she feels great! “It’s like a rebirth,” she said, explaining to us that there’s always a time for a person to come back and focus on themselves. “I feel like there’s a spark in me!”
She had been wanting to do something for a long time, and she was so happy she finally did. Her children noticed a significant change in her personality and confidence, and so did Cheryl. She was excited to start buying clothes for herself again, applying makeup every day, and feels so much better looking in the mirror now. She’s even started dating!
