Contour TRL is one of the most versatile laser skin resurfacing options available, providing an effective treatment for patients of all skin types. Texas Dermatology offers this advanced and effective skin rejuvenation treatment to the residents of San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Contour TRL?
Contour TRL is the tunable resurfacing laser, which means it is a laser resurfacing treatment that can be widely adjusted based on the needs of the patient and their cosmetic goals. While most laser systems offer limited applications by operating at a single intensity, the Contour TRL can be easily customized to optimize the strength of the laser. This means that treatment can be adjusted based on the treatment area, a patient’s skin type, the exact skin condition being treated and more. Furthermore, this offers improved results, shorter downtime and greater comfort than other laser resurfacing systems. For these reasons, the Contour TRL can be used on nearly any area of the body, helping patients who suffer from any of the following conditions:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Peri-oral and peri-orbital rhytides
- Acne scars, surgical scars or traumatic scars
- Actinic keratoses
- Pigmented lesions
- Loose or sagging skin
- Uneven skin tone or texture
How Much Does Contour TRL Cost?
The cost of your Contour TRL treatment can vary depending on the size of the areas you choose to be treated and the intensity of your treatment. Texas Dermatology offers financing for qualified patients through CareCredit®, and you can apply before your consultation.
What is the Treatment Like?
During your Contour TRL treatment, we will begin with the application of a topical to the treatment area in order to minimize any discomfort during treatment. You will also be provided with safety glasses to protect your eyes from any damage or discomfort. As treatment begins, you may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas with minimal to no discomfort. The treatment is typically completed in under an hour.
What is the Recovery Like After Contour TRL?
With the advanced, customizable laser technology of the Contour TRL treatment, recovery is much smoother than comparable laser resurfacing treatments. You can expect some redness, sensitivity and irritation in the skin in the days following your treatment. There is an initial downtime of about 48 hours, during which time patients will need to protect the skin from sunlight, irritants and other elements that can restrict or impact healing. However, patients are generally able to resume all usual activities after this time.
What Results Can I Expect?
Once the skin heals from the Contour TRL treatment, you can expect noticeable improvements in skin health and appearance within weeks. These results will continue to improve in the following weeks, as the body produces additional collagen and continues to rejuvenate the skin. Keep in mind that we may recommend multiple treatment sessions for optimal results, and one treatment alone may not be sufficient in delivering the desired results.
