SCITON CONTOUR TRL TREATMENT

Sandia Skin + Face is proud to offer SCITON CONTOUR TRL TREATMENT.

Fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other facial irregularities can often arrive as signs that your aging process has begun. If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution to these facial issues, the Sciton Contour TRL treatment is here for you. With laser resurfacing, we can turn back your biological clock and bring out your youthful qualities once more.

What is Sciton Contour TRL?

The Sciton Contour TRL is an Erbium Yag laser that resurfaces the skin by removing a variable depth of damaged and aging skin. The Contour TRL treatment is a great way to non-surgically eliminate problematic lines, wrinkles, and pigment irregularities by stimulating the growth of new collagen, improving your skin’s overall volume and resilience.

Contour TRL encourages your skin to regenerate new, healthy cells, giving your complexion a younger and more rejuvenated appearance. We customize the depth of the treatment according to each individual’s unique skin conditions, desired outcomes, and expectations of downtime.

How Many Sciton Contour TRL Treatments?

The number of treatments depends on your specific issue. Most patients only need one treatment, but this varies from patient to patient. We will create a personalized plan for your specific needs to give you the best overall results. This plan may include (but is not limited to) multiple treatments, combination treatments, and/or treatments combined with other products.

How to Care for My Skin After a Sciton Contour TRL Laser Resurfacing Treatment

Follow the post-laser resurfacing regimen given to you at your pre-procedure appointment. Use of a cold compress or ice pack will help to relieve the swelling. To avoid further swelling, you may choose to sleep propped up on two to three pillows the first several nights after treatment. Sleeping on your back with an elevated pillow will also help prevent the creation of prematurely peeling skin. For the first 24 hours, use a cold compress or ice pack may also to provide comfort if the treated area is especially warm. Post-treatment discomfort may be relieved by oral pain relievers like Extra Strength Tylenol or prescribed pain medication if ordered by a physician.

FAQ

Sciton Contour TRL (tunable resurfacing laser) is an Erbium YAG skin resurfacing laser. It is used to address a broad range of skin concerns. We can tailor the treatments to each patient’s needs, with results ranging from the subtle to the dramatic.

Sciton Contour TRL can treat the following skin conditions:

  • Deep Wrinkles
  • Deep Lip Lines
  • Fine Lines
  • Scars
  • Solar Spots
  • Pigment Irregularities
  • Actinic Keratosis
  • Poor Skin Tone
  • Uneven Texture

Sciton Contour TRL Laser The Contour TRL resurfaces the skin by removing a variable depth of damaged and aging skin. It can be very successful in reducing or most often eliminating problematic lines/wrinkles and pigment irregularities.

Because Sciton Contour TRL is capable of deep laser resurfacing, we typically achieve excellent results after just one treatment. Wrinkles and acne scars need more treatments and therefore require three to five sessions. And patients with photodamage will need to space their sessions six to eight weeks apart.

The Sciton Contour TRL procedure lasts from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the depth of treatment. To manage comfort, we apply a topical numbing anesthetic for about 45 to 60 minutes before we begin.

Yes. Sciton Contour TRL is a highly effective way to enhance your look and restore that youthful glow. We perform this procedure on its own, with impressive results, or we can include it as part of the comprehensive and customizable Vertical Restore procedure.

The Cost of a Sciton Contour TRL treatment may vary depending on the size and number of your treatment areas. The average cost of laser skin resurfacing is $2,509 for ablative and $1,445 for non-ablative, according to 2020 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Please contact us for a free consultation and quote.

After a Sciton Contour TRL treatment, the top layer of your skin will regenerate, being covered with mineral or aloe makeup for about one week, at which time you will see dramatic improvements in your skin’s texture, tone and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments continue to stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next 4 to 6 months.

Before you have Sciton Contour TRL laser resurfacing,

  • Don’t exfoliate your skin about one week before your treatment.
  • Temporarily stop all retinoid creams, glycolic, salicylic, or lactic acid treatment as part of your daily skin care routine.
  • Don’t add any new products right before your treatment to avoid problems with irritation.
  • Ask your doctor if you should avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, or fish oils, as these are blood thinners and can increase bruising.
  • Don’t apply sunless tanning creams or go to tanning spas, as these can interfere with laser treatment and cause damage to your skin
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking, as both can cause inflammation in the skin. Alcohol can also act as a blood thinner.

After you have Sciton Contour TRL laser resurfacing,

  • Apply moisturizer to the Sciton Contour TRL treated area of the skin for several days, as this prevents scabs from forming and encourages the healing process. Most licensed medical laser technicians will suggest using Aquaphor, or something similar, which you can apply to the treated area several times a day.
  • Mild to moderate pinpoint bleeding is the desired response and is very common with the Sciton Contour TRL procedure. This oozing and seeping may persist for 24 to 72 hours following your treatment. Erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) are very common following this procedure. Erythema normally persists for eight to 12 days depending upon the depth of the laser, while edema is typically a short-term response.
  • A feeling of tightness, warmth, and mild discomfort is also very common following this procedure. It is important to remember that everyone’s level of discomfort is different. Apply a protective barrier of Aquaphor or laser balm to the treatment area(s) following the Sciton Contour TRL procedure.

All Sciton Contour TRL ablative lasers can give big results with those results lasting well over a year if you have significant skin sun damage and wrinkles. However, this procedure may need to be repeated every 3-4 months after maintaining the results with some patients.

You’re likely a great candidate for Sciton Contour TRL if you’re interested in addressing:

  • Deep wrinkles
  • Deep lip lines
  • Fine lines
  • Scars
  • Solar spots
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Poor skin tone
  • Uneven texture

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

  • The office staff is super accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Tuggle and Tonya Tuggle are both wonderful at what they do. I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!

    Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

SCITON CONTOUR TRL TREATMENT
PROCEDURE PREP

Sciton Contour TRL Treatment Prep:

  • Please avoid ibuprofen, aspirin, fish oil, and other blood-thinning medication/supplements for two weeks prior to your procedure to decrease any possible bleeding and bruising.
  • Please discontinue the use of retinol products 24 hours prior to the procedure.
  • Please refrain from tobacco products and alcohol for two weeks before and for two weeks following the procedure. Tobacco and alcohol can cause delayed healing, persistent skin redness, and other complications.
  • We may prescribe antiviral medication to start one day before your procedure to prevent the occurrence of cold sores.
  • Since your skin is the first barrier to infection, we may prescribe you an antibiotic to start the day before your procedure. Though infections are uncommon following this procedure, it is important to take the antibiotics as directed until the bottle is empty.
  • We may prescribe Ativan, an anti-anxiety medication. If taking Ativan, make plans to have someone drive you to and from the procedure.
  • This procedure has a 10 to 14 day recovery period, depending on the depth of the treatment. Be sure to schedule your plans accordingly.

SCITON CONTOUR TRL TREATMENT
AFTERCARE

Sciton Contour TRL Treatment Aftercare:

  • Mild to moderate pinpoint bleeding is the desired response and is very common with the Sciton Contour TRL procedure. This oozing and seeping may persist for 24 to 72 hours following your treatment. Erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) are very common following this procedure. Erythema normally persists for eight to 12 days depending upon the depth of the laser, while edema is typically a short-term response.
  • A feeling of tightness, warmth, and mild discomfort is also very common following this procedure. It is important to remember that everyone’s level of discomfort is different. We may apply a protective barrier of Aquaphor or laser balm to the treatment area following the procedure.
  • Peeling and flaking occur within 24 hours post-treatment and one should allow skin to come off naturally. Do not pick, rub, or force off any skin during the healing process. This can cause scarring and infection. Gently washing the skin more frequently will help to promote the peeling process.
  • Once the skin has healed (and you are no longer wearing the occlusive barrier), you may wear mineral makeup that will allow the skin to breathe and continue healing. You should also wear sunblock daily to help prevent hyperpigmentation from both direct and indirect sunlight.
  • Please avoid strenuous exercise and sweating for two weeks after treatment or until the skin has fully healed. Please avoid direct sun exposure for two months following the procedure. However, wear a hat and sunscreen if going to be in the sun.
