Fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other facial irregularities can often arrive as tell-tale signs that the aging process has begun to set in. If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution to these facial issues, the Contour TRL treatment is here for you. With laser resurfacing, Dr. Karam can turn back the clock and bring out your youthful qualities once more.
What Should I Expect Upon Completion of the Contour TRL?
Mild to moderate pinpoint bleeding is the desired response and is very common with this 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. A protective barrier of Aquaphor or laser balm will be applied to the treatment area(s) following the procedure.
