Contour TRL Laser Skin Resurfacing in San Diego
As one of our deepest laser resurfacing options, the TRL can smooth even more severe facial wrinkles, reduce scars or pigmented lesions, and tighten lax skin in as little as one treatment. The TRL is also an ideal accompaniment to a facelift or eyelid surgery, helping to remove wrinkles around the mouth or eyes without over-tightening the skin.

How does a TRL laser peel work?
A TRL Laser peel precisely removes a layer of skin to a specific depth. This stimulates new collagen growth, improves the skin’s quality and thickness, and can reduce or eliminate pigmentation irregularities and lines on the face. The depth of the peel will depend on your skin condition, desired outcome, and how much downtime you can accept.
What areas can be treated?
The most common area to treat is the face, and it is also an excellent option to treat just around the eye region or just around the mouth area.
Our deepest TRL peels can be done during surgical procedures, while you are under anesthesia, making this an excellent laser option to achieve beautiful skin along with the rejuvenating effects of a facelift.
Who is a good candidate for TRL?
A San Diego Contour TRL treatment is ideal if you have mild to severe facial wrinkles, especially around the mouth or eyes. It can also be used to remove acne scars, pigmented lesions, or scars from injury or surgery. It is best for patients with lighter skin tones who desire the fewest possible treatments but can accept a little more downtime from each treatment.

How do I prepare for my TRL treatment?
The most important thing to do is to minimize sun exposure as much as possible. Avoid the sun when you can, and make sure you keep covered with hats and broad-spectrum SPF any time you are outdoors.
During your consultation, we will review your medical history to ensure your safety and results. This will allow us to recommend any necessary pre-treatment, including skin lighteners to prevent your skin from producing pigmentation during and after the peel or a prescription for an antiviral to prevent any viral outbreaks. We will also give you a laser kit with all of the aftercare products and supplies you will need during your healing process.
How many treatments will I need?
TRL is capable of deeper treatments, and many patients see excellent results after one treatment. Keep in mind that the deeper the peel is, the slightly longer time period the healing process will take.
We will customize the depth of the peel and the number of treatments to your needs. In most cases, patients are healed completely within 10 days but can expect a slight pinkness to the skin to last a few weeks.
Will it be painful?
TRL is generally very well tolerated with topical anesthetic and medication to help you relax and feel more comfortable. We’ll do everything we can to make sure you are as comfortable as possible!

Enjoy pain-free TRL laser treatments with add-on option PRO-NOX™
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. Simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety if and when you need it!
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but these effects wear off in minutes, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!
When will I see results?
During the healing process, the top layer of skin will slough off and reveal the healthier skin underneath, at which point you will see noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and wrinkles. Skin will continue to improve over the next 2 months, with full results sometimes taking up to 6 months to realize.
Is TRL safe for all skin types?
Patients with certain skin conditions, darker-toned complexions, or a history of pigmentation problems may not be candidates for TRL. If not, we will help you find another laser resurfacing option that will safely achieve your goals.
