Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser
The Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser (TRL) is a dual mode Erbium:YAG resurfacing laser that can help with visible signs of skin damage caused by the sun, environmental toxins and the natural aging process. TRL technology gives the provider the ability to adjust the depth of treatment depending on the severity of wrinkles, sun damage, or skin condition. Clinical studies have shown that erbium lasers produce far fewer side effects than are commonly associated with CO2 lasers such as prolonged swelling and hypopigmentation. There are different depths of TRL treatment. The TRL Nano Laser Peel, the TRL Micro Laser Peel and the TRL Deep laser resurfacing. The TRL Nano Laser Peel is the least aggressive, and the TRL Deep is the most aggressive.
TRL’s unique ability to be tuned for different tissue effects gives it the widest array of possible treatments. TRL provides the ability to plane down wrinkles externally while internally stimulating the dermal collagen matrix to firm the skin and add dermal resilience. TRL can treat all skin types, both on face and body.
The TRL Nano Laser Peel treats superficial pigmentation, melasma, acne and ruddy skin, providing an instant brightening. Gentle light energy is used to remove imperfections and debris, revealing a softer, more even skin tone and restoring a healthy, vibrant glow in just 1 to 2 days.
The TRL Micro and TRL Deep Laser treat these conditions:
- Mild to deep wrinkles
- Persistent peri-oral (around the mouth) and peri-orbital (around the eyes) deep wrinkles
- Acne scars, post-traumatic and surgical scars
- Actinic keratoses
- Pigmented lesions
- Poor skin tone/texture
- Actinic keratosis
Frequently Asked Questions
What do you feel like after a TRL laser peel?
Following your TRL Nano Laser Peel and TRL Micro Laser Peel treatment, you can expect to feel as though you’ve had a sunburn in the treated area, slight redness, and possible swelling. During the TRL Deep Laser Resurfacing healing phase, the skin appears pink though crusting, scabbing, the feeling of sunburn and swelling may. This resolves over 2-7 days revealing your rejuvenated glow.
What is the healing time?
Downtime time will depend on your specific concerns and the depth of treatment needed. The TRL Nano Laser Peel healing time is typically 1-2 days. The TRL Micro and TRL Deep healing times range from 5-10 days. We will discuss what to expect in more detail at your consultation.
When will I see results?
Although individual results vary, most patients see an improvement in their skin’s texture and tone in about a week. As you continue to experience cell regeneration, you may continue to see improvements over the next several weeks and months following your treatment.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient. A major benefit of the Contour TRL is that it can be customized to fit your busy lifestyle. A series of lighter peels can help you achieve the same results as one deep penetrating laser peel without the extensive downtime. A personalized plan will be created for your specific needs to give you the best overall results. This plan could include but is not limited to: multiple treatments, combination treatments, and/or treatments combined with products.
