Laser Skin Resurfacing

Wrinkle reduction and improved skin tone & texture

Treat wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots and other scars with the Profile Contour laser. The laser allows our physicians to precisely vary the depth and effect of your treatment by removing thin layers of your skin’s surface, which will be replaced by younger skin growth. The depth of your peel will be tailored to match your skin condition and desired result.

What is a Laser Peel?

As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, creating wrinkles and pigment irregularities, especially on our faces. A Laser Peel can be very successful at reducing or eliminating these conditions, and in fact it is the best way to address the problematic lines that occur around the mouth and eyes. Though there are several different types of lasers used to perform peels, the Contour TRL is widely regarded as the safest, most effective laser available.
Contour TRL safely removes fine lines and deep wrinkles, including those pesky lines around the lips and eyes, with custom tailored treatments designed to achieve your desired outcome and expectations for downtime.

Typical Appointment Length:

Your peel may take up to thirty minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the depth of your peel. Recovery time for a deeper peel is one week. Redness and swelling are common immediately following treatment but should subside in a few hours. The top layer of your skin will re-grow and have a residual pink or red color that will resolve over time.

What conditions can be treated with Contour TRL?

• Deep wrinkles (even in difficult to treat areas like around the mouth and eyes)
• Scars
• Solar spots
• Actinic Keratoses
• Poor skin tone/texture

When will I see results?

The top layer of your skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about one week, at which time you will see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next 4 to 6 months. During this time, the skin may show increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.

What areas are treated?

• Mouth
• Eyes
• Lips

What is the difference between a laser and a peel? 

Laser generally delivers faster results than peels, with results showing in just three to five days. This is especially true when patients choose laser resurfacing to fade acne scars.

How does a Contour TRL Laser Peel work?

Contour TRL safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by your physician. The depth of treatment will depend on the skin condition, your desired outcome and expectation for downtime. Because Contour TRL can affect tissue with micron precision, your physician can – no more, no less. Treating skin with a laser stimulates the growth of new collagen, which improves the skin’s thickness and resilience. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, which will give your skin a younger rejuvenated appearance.

How long will it take to recover?

Complete healing will depend largely on the depth of treatment. Healing times for shallow treatments are typically 3-4 days before patients resume normal activities. For deeper treatments, you should discuss realistic expectations for recovery with your physician.

What aftercare do I need?

You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed
  • Always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin
  • Typical downtime is 7-10 days
