HOW DOES CONTOUR TRL LASER RESURFACING WORK?

Contour TRL laser resurfacing works by delivering precise laser energy to the skin’s surface, creating controlled thermal injury. This prompts the skin’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen production and remodeling damaged tissue. The depth of treatment can be adjusted according to the specific needs of the patient, offering versatility in addressing various skin concerns. By tailoring the treatment depth, the Contour TRL Sciton laser resurfacing achieves customisable results with popular treatments such as NanoLaserPeel, MicroLaserPeel and Deep Resurfacing.

WHICH VARYING TREATMENT IS BEST FOR ME?

Dr. Ren will discuss with you about your skin concerns and tailor a treatment plan to suit your skin needs, aesthetic goals, lifestyle and downtime. All of the varying treatments from Contour TRL (ZoomScan) handpiece can be performed as a standalone treatment or in combination in a session.

  • NanoLaserPeel targets superficial imperfections, such as fine lines, dull skin and pigmentation. It is a more precise and powerful alternative to a chemical peel. Often referred to as “lunchtime peel” or “weekend peel”, it is a comfortable and fast treatment with very minimal downtime. This treatment brightens complexion, evens skin tone, and reveals a healthy youthful glow, typically in 30 minutes or less. Suitable for those who are beginners in the the world of laser and light skin treatments, have busy lifestyles or want quick healthy skin maintenance.
  • MicroLaserPeel addresses moderate imperfections with minimal downtime. It creates micro-ablated channels into the dermal tissue to treat a variety of skin concerns and stimulate new collagen growth, surrounded by islands of untreated skin to promote rapid healing. Suitable for those with uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, acne and dark spots to achieve healthier-looking skin.
  • Deep Resurfacing penetrates deeper layers, effectively treats severe wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. It is a treatment which provides incredible results with a downtime of 10 to 14 days, depending on treatment aggresiveness, skin quality, skin healing ability and treatment area. Suitable for those with undesirable lines around the lips (also known as smokers’ lines) and eyes (crow’s feet, perorbital lines) or ready for a skin transformation.

WHY CHOOSE CONTOUR TRL?

Contour TRL utilises erbium:YAG laser technology with a wavelength at 2940 nm. As it uses a safer wavelength, Contour TRL reduces discomfort, downtime and risk of complications for patients, even for darker skin types, when compared to other fully ablative resurfacing lasers, such as ablative CO2 laser. Contour TRL can be used for face and body and is safe for all skin types.

Contour TRL or ZoomScan employs a dual-mode erbium: YAG laser, the pinnacle of resurfacing laser technology. Erbium has a much higher absorption in the target chromophore water than CO2, which gives erbium the ability to vaporise tissue with very little thermal conduction. 

Studies have shown that erbium lasers produce far fewer side effects such as the prolonged erythema and hypopigmentation that are common with CO2 lasers.

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR CONTOUR TRL?

Any individual can benefit from Contour TRLTM laser treatment as it can be used on any area of the body where there is sun damage or textural concerns. Popular treatment areas are face, neck, décolletage and back of hands. Contour TRL laser is safe for all skin types (including ethnic or Asian skin type), male and female. Skin prep will be required for patients with darker skin type.

Contour TRL indications:

  • fine lines

WHAT ARE THE EXPECTED RESULTS FROM CONTOUR TRL LASER?

Results may vary depending on skin quality before treatment, skintype and treatment aggresiveness. Patients can expect to see greater improvements of smoother skin texture, reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles with lesser pigmentation within a week, even after one session. Depending on factors such as skin condition, sun protection and lifestyle, results may last months to years. We recommend maintenance treatments in every 6 to 12 months to sustain Contour TRL Deep Resurfacing’s anti-ageing benefits over time. For shallow laser treatments, a series of sessions will be required and maintenance treatments can be tailored based on skin concerns and lifestyle. For acne scarrings, post-surgical or burn scars, multiple sessions and/or treatment combinations will be required to achieve optimal results.

Contour TRL laser can be used in combination with other Sciton’s resurfacing laser (HALO and ProFractional) and BroadBand Light for maximum skin benefits by addressing multiple skin concerns in one single session, thereby reducing the total downtime required. Consult with our Dr. Ren Poh for a more personalised advice and treatment plan to suit your skin needs and lifestlye. Please note that individuals who are planning for events (weddings, corporate dinner, birthdays, etc.) are highly recommended to book in for Contour TRL laser treatment 6 months to 1 year before the event. 

During your Contour TRL consultation:

Our cosmetic physician will have a face-to-face consultation with you where you can discuss your concerns or questions about the treatment. Please ensure that all makeup is removed well before your consultation for an accurate examination of your facial skin. You may leave your sunscreen on (preferably untinted), which can be removed during consultation.

Please advise our cosmetic physician if you:

  • have allergic/anaphylaxis reactions to anaesthetic agents.
  • are regularly taking anti-coagulation therapy
  • have a skin condition
  • have a history of herpes or cold sores (anti-viral medication pre and post treatment is highly recommended to prevent outbreak of cold sores. It can be prescribed to you if needed)
  • are prone to acne breakouts (topical antibiotic cream as prophylaxis can be prescribed to you if needed)
  • have tattoo(s), henna, cosmetic tattoos or other body inks.
  • had tattoo removal on face and/or body.

To ensure skin is in optimal condition before Contour TRL treatment, a lightening cream or skin preparation cream may be prescribed by our cosmetic physician to be used for 2 to 4 weeks during the initial consultation. 

Skin preparation / requirement before Contour TRL treatment:

The key to achieving desirable results with Contour TRL is to use a combination of sun protection regularly. Use SPF 50+ sunscreen regularly and sun protection clothing (e.g., hats, long sleeves shirts, umbrella). Always reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.

Avoid extended sun exposure such as beach, travel to sunny locations, sunbathing, outdoor sports, etc.

Stop use of topical retinol or retinoic acid for 1 week prior to treatment.

No recent sunburn experience or fake tans for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.

No isotretinoin for a year prior to treatment.

On the day of Contour TRL treatment appointment:

Please come without any makeup on face. Use sunscreen only (preferably untinted) and this will be removed at clinic before treatment.

Wear comfortable clothes for treatment with wide necklines or with straps for easier treatment access, especially if neck and/or décolletage are to be treated.

Please leave jewellery (e.g., earrings, piercings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.) at home or remove them before treatment.

Wear a wide brim hat or use umbrella before and after treatment.

The area of skin being treated is firstly cleansed thoroughly. For shallow treatment, topical anaesthetic is prescribed and applied to treatment area for 30 to 45 minutes. Topical anaesthetic will be removed prior to laser treatment. For deeper treatment, local anaesthetics will be used to make treatment more comfortable. Skin is cleansed again to remove topical anaesthetic. Protective eye shields are then placed to cover patient’s eyes.

The procedure produces a snapping or popping sound. Some level of pain and discomfort are expected and they vary from patient to patient, depending on treatment aggresiveness. Pinpoint bleeding may occur in certain treatment areas. Cooling device is also used together to minimise the discomfort and heat associated with the procedure.

After the procedure, a hydrating and cooling facial sheet mask is applied over the treated area immediately and the cooling device continues to be used to increase patient’s comfort level. Post-treatment soothing balm is applied lastly to the treated skin. Use of hat or umbrella is highly recommended after the procedure.

Downtime:

Recovery varies between patients, depending on treatment depth and aggresiveness. It also takes into account of patient’s skin concerns, health of skin and healing ability. In the first 24 hours, mild redness, burning and discomfort are expected in the treated area. This will be followed with peeling and flaking of skin over the next few days. 

  • For a standard NanoLaserPeel treatment on face, 1 to 2 days of downtime is expected with mild redness resolving within 24 hours.
  • For standard MicroLaserPeel treatment on face, 1 to 2 weeks of downtime is expected with mild redness and swelling.
  • For a standard Deep Resurfacing treatment on face, 2 weeks to a month of downtime is expected with redness, swelling and minimal pain, depending on treatment aggresiveness.
  • For a standard Deep Resurfacing treatment on neck, décolletage or other body treatment areas, downtime may take longer and varies depending on treatment aggresiveness. Loose clothes are recommended for better healing to avoid rubbing and friction between treated area and clothings.

Treatment duration:

Treatment duration varies depending on treatment areas and complexities. Below are just duration for full face treatment only.

NanoLaserPeel: Approximately 30 minutes for skin cleansing, photo-taking and 20 minutes for laser procedure.

MicroLaserPeel: For standard full face MicroLaserPeel treatment, treatment duration is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. This includes duration for skin cleansing, photo-taking, 30 to 45 minutes for topical anaesthetic application and 30 to 40 minutes for laser procedure. 

Deep Resurfacing: For standard full face Deep Resurfacing treatment, treatment duration is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. This includes duration for skin cleansing, photo-taking, 30 to 45 minutes for topical anaesthetic application and 30 to 40 minutes for laser procedure.

Note: Duration of treatment will increase if a combination of other treatments are performed in a single session.

The results and longevity of a Contour TRL treatment varies and depends on the condition of the skin before treatment and how well the skin is protected from UV damage after treatment. If Contour TRL is used to treat relatively healthy skin for fine lines, wrinkles and mild to moderate sun damage, one treatment will show visible results. If it is to treat severe sun damage, dyschromias and deeper scars and wrinkles, two or more sessions are recommended to obtain more optimal results. Patient with darker skin type will require more treatment sessions as the settings used are much lower to ensure safety and to reduce risk of pigmentation changes. Hormonal pigmentation will also require more treatments at very low settings.

For a standard full face Contour TRLtreatment, patient can expect recovery process as outlined below (for reference only): 

Day 1 and 2:

Mild redness and swelling are expected in the treated area. Tiny, dark spots and bronzed appearance will appear on the treated skin over the course of these two days. These may look like “coffee-grounds” on the skin and are referred as MENDs (Microscopic Epidermal Necrotic Debris). MENDs are sections of treated skin being removed from the body, which are then replaced by healthy new skin.

Day 3 to 5:

Skin feels tight and dry with decreased redness. May experience slight flaking of the dry skin and more MENDs appearing on treated skin. Certain individuals may experience acne breakouts, which can be managed with topical antibiotic cream as prophylaxis if required. Mineral based and light makeup can be applied after 48 hours post treatment. Use only clean make-up applicators.

Day 6 to 7:

Noticeable glow or luminosity to skin. Dryness and mild flaking are expected, which should resolve very soon.

4 to 6 months after treatment:

Skin continues to improve and looks healthier.
