TRL Laser Resurfacing
Enhance the Texture, Tone, and Luminosity of Your Skin in Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Ft. Myers, and Naples, FL
Whether your skin problem includes fine lines or deeper lines or the spots we acquire with aging, the solution you are seeking may very well be the Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser—also called TRL laser resurfacing. Naples’ Skin Wellness Physicians team uses this versatile, dual mode resurfacing laser to improve visible signs of skin damage from aging or environmental stressors.
What Is TRL Laser Resurfacing?
Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser (TRL) by Sciton is a laser with a wide array of possible treatment options. The ablation depth and thermal coagulation depth of this comprehensive resurfacing system can be adjusted to imitate any other ablative or non-ablative laser treatment, including Er:YSGG, CO2, and more. In plain speak? It can easily be tailored to each patient’s needs.
The single TRL laser resurfacing system can offer patients unique combinations and treatments via four modules: light resurfacing with MicroLaserPeel, deep resurfacing, and fractional resurfacing with ProFractional or ProFractional XC.
MicroLaserPeel addresses imperfections on the surface of the skin, including rough texture, flakes, dullness, large pores, acne, uneven pigment, mild wrinkles, scars, keratoses, and dyspigmentation. This module of TRL laser resurfacing polishes skin to provide a brighter, more even, and luminous complexion. It can dramatically improve fine lines and wrinkles, as well as imperfections anywhere on the surface of the face or body.
What Is the TRL Laser Resurfacing Procedure Like?
TRL laser resurfacing is more aggressive compared to microdermabrasion or any other laser treatments and can be calibrated for superficial treatments or for deep skin resurfacing. It takes 30 minutes or less for a lighter treatment such as the MicroLaserPeel treatment to be completed. A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area prior to a session to minimize sensation.
Which Conditions Can TRL Laser Resurfacing Address?
TRL laser resurfacing is used for light and deep skin resurfacing. It can improve skin bumps, wrinkles, some forms of dyspigmentation, and actinic keratoses. It’s also effective for general skin rejuvenation. TRL laser resurfacing can be highly effective for treating lines or wrinkles around the mouth.
What Can You Expect After TRL Laser Resurfacing?
Patients often achieve impressive results after just one TRL laser resurfacing treatment. You can usually return to work within three to four days.
Results from MicroLaserPeel begin to appear within two weeks and continue to evolve over six months. There may be up to one week of downtime, and one to three treatments may be needed to optimize results. Patients may experience minor, temporary side effects, including sunburn-like symptoms such as mild redness and swelling. These will resolve on their own, although it is important to stay away from UV radiation.
Are There Any Alternatives or Options that Pair Well with TRL Laser Resurfacing?
Skin Wellness Physicians also offers a full range of other laser and light-based treatments, such as intense pulsed light (IPL), photodynamic therapy, fractional laser, Moxi®, and laser skin resurfacing. MicroLaserPeel can be combined with other laser therapies, or with ProFractional treatments to provide deeper skin resurfacing and more dramatic improvements.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as the Juvederm® and Restylane® collections are also available to improve static wrinkles. Unlike TRL laser resurfacing, these are injectable gels that work by adding volume to the skin.
