No matter how diligent we are with sunscreen and anti-aging products, our skin is exposed to sun damage, collagen loss, and scarring over the years. The smooth complexion we once loved becomes rougher, lines and wrinkles appear, and the pigmentation in our skin becomes less even. Take years off your appearance and rediscover your most radiant skin with Contour TRL laser skin resurfacing and tightening in Austin, TX.
This highly customizable laser skin treatment addresses signs of aging with advanced precision, giving you the rejuvenated look you want without extra recovery time you don’t need.
What Is Contour TRL?
Contour TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) is a sophisticated Erbium laser skin resurfacing solution, capable of a wide variety of treatment options. Compared to other lasers, such as CO2 lasers, Contour TRL offers fewer side effects, better results, and shorter recovery times.
The ablative laser removes the top layer of the epidermis to significantly reduce wrinkles, lines, texture concerns, and pigmented spots. It peels this layer away at a depth specifically tailored to you, leaving behind as much healthy skin as possible. This process also stimulates collagen production, which generates smoother, tighter, more resilient skin and a younger look overall.
What Does Contour TRL Treat?
TRL both reduces signs of aging externally and stimulates collagen production internally, making it ideal for treating many different concerns on the face and body. A few popular treatments include:
- Mild to deep wrinkles
- Deep lines around the mouth and eyes
- Acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Sun damage
- Pigmented areas
- Skin laxity
- Poor skin tone or texture
Treatment depth range from 100 to 800 microns for the 2940nm wavelength. Other options for treating lines and wrinkles include BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and the HALO™ hybrid fractional laser. Our skincare specialists will help determine the best treatment plan for you.
What to Expect at Your Contour TRL Treatment
At the start of your treatment, your provider will administer a local anesthetic to make sure you are completely comfortable. After dialing in the treatment depth to address your specific concerns, your provider will pass the device over your skin, delivering a highly targeted and controlled treatment. Most treatments take 30 minutes to an hour, though this time may vary depending on the size and number of your targeted areas.
What Is Contour TRL Recovery Like?
Contour TRL requires 10 to 14 days of social downtime as your skin heals. During this time, you will need to protect your skin from the sun and apply a topical ointment to keep it moisturized. We will give you detailed instructions and follow your healing closely in the days after your procedure to make sure all your questions are answered.
Nothing can stop the aging process, but Contour TRL takes several years off your appearance and effectively turns back the clock by treating signs of aging. Most people find their smoother, younger-looking skin lasts as long as 10 years after just a single treatment.
How Much Does Contour TRL Cost?
Laser skin resurfacing and tightening with Contour TRL costs about $4,000 in Austin. This price may vary depending on the size and number of your treatment areas.
