Information

ProFractional Therapy and Contour TRL Laser Peel can help treat wrinkles, skin texture, and other skin concerns with only one or two 15 to 30-minute treatments.

Focusing on the upper layers of the skin, both treatments can promote the growth of new skin cells and stimulate the skin to increase collagen production.

Multiple areas can be treated, but most people choose to treat the face (particularly around the mouth, the lines around the outer eyelids, and cheeks), neck, chest and/or hands.

Your procedure can be personalised to suit your needs, and results will always vary from person to person!

How do the treatments work?

Both ProFractional and Contour TRL Laser work by removing the top layer of the skin. When the top layer of the skin is removed, the body will produce new skin cells and increase the production of collagen, creating tighter and firmer skin in the treated area.

ProFractional Therapy uses a small laser beam, that can target thousands of pinpoint areas on your skin. Since the treatment can precisely target areas, the untouched surrounding tissue can help to promote healing.

Contour TRL uses micron precision to carefully treat your skin, using the right amount of energy needed. It can specifically treat deep wrinkles, scarring, sun spots, skin texture and tone, and actinic keratoses.

What can I expect during my ProFractional and Contour TRL Laser treatment?

At the beginning of your treatment, your skin will be cleansed and your eyes will need to be protected by wearing safety shields. Your physician may apply a topical numbing cream before your treatment, if you prefer. The laser hand piece will then be placed on the skin, to precisely deliver laser energy. Overall, the procedure usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes, but this depends on your treatment area and the number of areas that will be treated.

Am I a suitable candidate for these treatments?

Your suitability for ProFractional and Contour TRL Laser should be assessed and discussed during a consultation, as not everyone will be suitable for the treatments. Assessing if your skin is suitable for the treatment and that you will be able to heal sufficiently after the procedure will help to prevent complications. At Infinity Skin, your skin will be thoroughly assessed for any skin conditions, and you can discuss the skin concerns that you would like to address.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

Before your treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for at least two to four weeks, applying an SPF 30+ to further protect your skin from UV rays. You will need to follow a medical grade skin routine for a month before your treatment, designed to prepare your skin, support results and prevent complications post-treatment.

What should I expect after the treatment?

After your treatment, you will need to keep some dressings on the treated area for about five to seven days. These dressings will help to protect your skin as it heals. Typically, the treated skin will completely heal in about seven to 10 days, but results can vary from person to person. Redness and pigmentation changes can be expected, and you will usually need to follow a specialised skincare routine for about two to three months.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients will only need one treatment, but sometimes a second treatment can help to achieve even more noticeable results. It will depend on each person’s needs, which should be discussed at your consultation.

ProFractional and Contour TRL Laser Resurfacing – Q & A

Since you will need to very carefully avoid excessive sun exposure before and after your treatment, we recommend aiming to undergo your treatment during winter. However, the most suitable time for you is going to depend on your personal lifestyle.

After ProFractional and Contour TRL Laser, you will need to get plenty of rest and continue to avoid excessive sun exposure. You will have dressings applied to the treated area/s, which you will be instructed to keep clean. If your dressings come loose, you will need to clean the treated area and apply antiseptic ointment. You should contact our team at Infinity Skin if you have any questions, or are concerned about possible symptoms of complications, at any point after your treatment.

The amount of time that you will need to avoid exercise, sports or stay home from work can depend on the extent of your treatment – generally, about seven to 10 days can be enough time. Once the treated area has healed, the skin can remain red for some time, but this may be covered with makeup. You should still wear sunscreen and aim to avoid sun exposure, up until at lease a month.

ProFractional Laser may sometimes be performed at the same time as other procedures, such as mole removal surgery or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), performed by Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Charles Cope.

While your skin is healing, you might notice a tightening effect, but the skin will need some time to respond to the treatment. The increase of collagen production and collagen remodelling can take place within about four to six months after your treatment. However, after just one week, the top layer of your skin should have re-grown, already showing some changes to the texture and tone of your skin.

Results will always vary from person to person, but the results after the extensive ProFractional and Contour TRL Laser treatment should last for years. While the results of your treatment should be quite long lasting, but can be better supported in the longer-term by following a good skincare routine, and protecting your skin from sun exposure.
