As with any treatment, discomfort or pain will vary from patient to patient. Patients receiving a Contour TRL treatment from the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center rarely require a topical anesthetic, but your provider may choose to use it on more sensitive treatment areas or with deeper treatments. Patients often describe a mild stinging sensation, like the snapping of a rubber band, at the treated areas during treatment.

Along with Contour TRL, we may also recommend:
How It Works
Your procedure will begin with a consultation where we review the treatment and what you should expect. After this consultation, we will cleanse the treatment area and mark any areas your provider should avoid during treatment (a mole, permanent makeup, tattoos, etc.). Then we’ll put on protective eyewear, and our technician will apply a clear gel to protect your skin.
How It Works
Targeted Laser Treatment
The Contour TRL device will work from one zone to the next, thoroughly treating each area. Your provider will focus the handpiece on your desired treatment areas, such as the forehead, nose, upper lip, and then chin. The duration of this step will depend upon the areas being treated.
How It Works
Post Care and Follow Up
Once the treatment is completed, your provider will remove your eyewear and cleanse your skin, and then apply post-care creams and sunscreen. We want to thoroughly protect your skin post-treatment. Once you’re done, we’ll have a follow-up discussion to review any additional concerns, questions, and post-care.
How it Works
Following Contour TRL in Kansas city, your top layer of skin will steadily regenerate following the treatment. After 1 week, you can expect to 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. During this time, the skin will continue to improve in tightness and resilience.
Because Contour TRL is such an effective, adaptive laser system capable of deep laser resurfacing, most patients see notable results after just one treatment. For some patients, though, additional treatments may prove necessary to achieve desired results.

Common Questions About Contour TRL in Kansas City
Recovery from Contour TRL takes between 3-5 days for most patients, though deeper treatments may result in slightly longer recovery periods.
Your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you continue using a broad-spectrum sunblock with both UVA and UVB coverage even after your healing is complete to avoid further damage and premature aging of your skin.
Any area of your body can be treated with Contour TRL. The most popular treatment sites are on the face and neck.
With shallower treatments, you can expect to see results within 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. During this time, the skin will continue to improve in tightness and resilience.
