What is Erbium Contour TRL Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a technology that’s been used for decades to remove lesions and scars and treat hyperpigmentation. This type of laser treatment removes the top layers of skin to smooth the surface and correct discoloration. Erbium Contour TRL Resurfacing is a sophisticated form of laser skin rejuvenation that uses Erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet lasers (erbium YAG). TRL stands for Tunable Resurfacing Laser as this laser is highly customizable.

Unlike their carbon dioxide laser counterpart, these lasers allow their depth to be controlled with micro precision. Modern science has revolutionized anti-aging skin treatment options by offering physicians the ability to completely customize facial treatments for each client.

Whether you have acne scarring, wrinkles, or other facial skin flaws, Spa26 in Beverly Hills offers TRL resurfacing to treat them all leaving you with smoother, and even-toned skin.

How Erbium Contour TRL Resurfacing Works

Erbium Contour TRL Resurfacing removes the top layers of skin in targeted areas. During laser treatments, the body’s natural healing process is activated, encouraging collagen production. Collagen is a protein that works to protect the skin and improves overall thickness and resilience. The healing process stimulates the growth of new healthy cells and gives the skin a rejuvenated look and feel.

Before & Preparation

Before your first Erbium Contour TRL resurfacing treatment, you’ll have a consultation with Dr. Nazarian at Spa26 to discuss your concerns and goals. Before your treatment appointment, you’ll receive specific instructions like:

  • Don’t use tobacco or consume alcohol for the two weeks leading up to your procedure.
  • Don’t apply retinol products within 24 hours of treatment.
  • Avoid sun exposure.
  • Avoid certain medications (your provider will review your medications and let you know which ones to take and which ones to skip, and for how long before procedure day)
  • Wash your face before your appointment, and don’t apply lotions, makeup, or any other product.

During the Procedure

During the laser resurfacing procedure, the experienced practitioner will discuss the exact steps of the process. He/She will execute highly targeted laser treatment dictated by your pre-discussed plan that will be reviewed with you before the procedure begins. It’s not expected that you’ll experience much discomfort as local numbing and topical numbing are applied as needed, but be sure to inform the practitioners if you experience any discomfort.

Refer to the step-by-step guidance below to become more familiar with the procedure.

  • Your provider will thoroughly clean your face with antiseptic soap.
  • You’ll be given protective eyewear and positioned where you can comfortably relax.
  • A local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area for comfort.
  • The laser specialist will use the TRL Contour laser and computer-guided scanner to move the laser over the treatment area.
  • The procedure will last 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the area and severity of the treated region.

Aftercare & Recovery

Once your treatment is complete, you’ll need 5 to 14 days of recovery, depending on the surface area and depth of treatment. While you won’t be physically limited after the first day or two, you’ll need a social vacation and should avoid sunlight until the healing process is well underway.

Furthermore, your provider will give you specific aftercare instructions that may include:

  • Apply topical ointment following the provider’s instructions.
  • Avoid sunlight
  • Avoid excessive handling and touching your face.
  • Sleep with head elevated for the first few days.
  • Gently wash your face twice a day for the first few days by letting the water run over your face; avoid scrubbing.
  • Consume a high-calorie, high protein diet to facilitate quicker healing.

Erbium Contour TRL Resurfacing FAQs

Is TRL Contour painful?

Answer: Each client has varying pain thresholds, but most patients experience minimal discomfort during and after laser resurfacing. A local and topical anesthetic will be used during resurfacing. Post-procedure pain feels like sunburn and can be reduced with a cold compress.

When will I see results after erbium laser treatment?

Answer: Results typically begin to appear as skin cells recover and heal. For many people, initial results are visible in one to two weeks and continue to improve over the following month, with peak results at three months.

How long do Erbium laser results last?

Answer: Many patients find long-lasting to permanent results with laser resurfacing treatments. However, aging does continue, and new fine lines and wrinkles may appear over time.

Will my medical insurance cover TRL resurfacing treatment?

Answer: Because laser skin treatment is not medically necessary, medical insurance does not generally cover the cost of treatments. You can contact your insurance provider directly to determine if your policy will cover a portion of the procedure. In some cases, including cancer treatment, laser resurfacing may be entirely or partially covered.

How often should you get an Erbium laser?

Answer: Your individual treatment goals, conditions, and initial treatment results will guide your custom plan and determine how many treatments you require. If multiple sessions are recommended, you should wait at least four weeks between laser treatments.
