FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER FACIAL REJUVENATION
- Should I choose an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon or a Plastic Surgeon?
We all want to choose the most qualified physician if we are going to accept a treatment that will affect our health and our appearance. While the decision must be made by each individual, it’s important to check the training and experience of your physician who will perform the laser skin resurfacing treatment.
For example: To become an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Gocke initially spent over 6 years in school learning all about the muscles, tissues and structures of the face, mouth and neck areas. This centralized focus of the facial and oral region makes him highly qualified and differs from the training of laser technicians or even plastic surgeons who have to learn loads of treatments and techniques ranging from breast reconstruction and liposuction to removing moles and warts on hands and feet—all compressed in just 2 years!
If you choose to select Dr. Gocke for your laser facial rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments, be assured your decision will be backed up by his reputable name at local Virginia Hospitals and over 15 years of continuing education in the field of facial aesthetics.
- Does the laser resurfacing hurt?
The laser facial rejuvenation procedure is relatively painless. You might experience some moderate discomfort, but the anesthesia we use before the treatment will make you feel comfortable. Even for higher intensity fractional laser treatments, we will make sure you are as relaxed and comfy as possible.
After the procedure, you will experience a feeling similar to a sunburn and for the next 7 days or so your skin will peel as it exfoliates and replaces old dead skin cells with new healthy ones! At home, you may use simple pain-killers if you experience discomfort while your skin heals and regenerates.
For more complex treatments, Dr. Gocke may prescribe antibiotics and other post-care instructions.
- How much does CO2 laser resurfacing cost?
Our aesthetic laser resurfacing packages cost between $1800 to $3000 USD. The price for session packages includes the anesthesia (if needed) and Surgical Facility Fee.
For a more accurate quote, please call our office at 703-388-2805 since pricing will vary depending on your skin condition, desired results and treatment coverage. We also accept CareCredit so that you can pay for your treatments at your convenience!
- Which CO2RE treatment is right for me?
You may be an ideal candidate for CO2RE if you are in your 30’s or older and want to repair sun-damaged skin, aging spots, fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, rough or drooping texture, acne scars, or other imperfections of the skin. This laser rejuvenation is especially for you if you want to look younger without having long recovery periods and risky procedures common with traditional resurfacing and plastic surgery.
The laser treatment sessions are painless and each session will follow a program tailor-designed to treat the right spots with the right intensity for your unique dermal characteristics. For example, we use varying intensities of the laser to treat the areas around the eyes than we would for the face, mouth, and chin. Dr. Gocke will help put together a treatment plan perfect for you.
- Is the CO2RE laser safe?
Absolutely! The CO2RE has been clinically tested and proven. Speak to Dr. Gocke about your medical conditions and skin history to avoid and minimize adverse reactions.
- How many laser treatments will I need?
It is normal to see the difference you want after the first treatment. Usually, a series of treatments are recommended, which we may offer in packages. In the following days after the treatment, your skin continues to heal and you will notice how it gradually looks softer, smoother and tighter.
Dr. Gocke can perform what is called a “superficial peel” which uses the laser at about 30% intensity and you will experience redness in the treatment area for about 1 or 2 days. A “fractional peel” can be used to repopulate the skin from 30-70% laser intensity and will result in more downtime. Any treatment above that is more complex and would require a balance between downtime (recovery time) and the results you want.
- How long will the rejuvenating results last?
This laser resurfacing results with CO2RE can be comparable to that of surgical procedures. Most treatments last for many years and for a fraction of the cost of traditional surgery. Of course, results vary depending on your age, skin care habits and other variables.
