Remove Skin Impurities and Revitalize the Skin for a Youthful Appearance with Contour TRL Treatment


While your trusted topical skin care solutions can help protect your skin and deter the development of sun damage and facial wrinkles, they can only do much to resolve these problems.

The good thing is that laser treatments can remove these aesthetic concerns with natural-looking results without plastic surgery.

aNu Aesthetics is one of the most reliable medical spas in Kansas City, providing patients with a wealth of cosmetic options to resolve every problem area, from anti-aging to body contouring solutions. Our Contour TRL procedure is a recommended treatment for skin rejuvenation from within, reducing the appearance of mild to deep wrinkles and other skin impurities without plastic surgery.

What is Contour TRL? 

Contour TRL, or Tunable Resurfacing Laser, is a skin resurfacing procedure to reduce the appearance of many skin problems, from uneven skin tone to fine lines and deep wrinkles. This laser resurfacing treatment uses an Erbium YAG technology for skin rejuvenation to promote a youthful and radiant appearance.

  • Noninvasive treatment
  • Customized laser treatment
  • Natural-looking results
  • Suitable for every skin type and skin tone

Contour TRL works by allowing a fine-tuned laser to remove the top layers of the skin, resolving its impurities, like dead skin cells, sun damage, and facial wrinkles. The heat from the laser stimulates the production of new collagen, a protein in the body that makes your skin tighter and smoother. This laser peel treatment promotes the growth of new skin cells that replace dull and damaged skin, resurfacing healthier and more radiant layers.

We at aNu Aesthetics provide a customized treatment with Contour TRL because of its micron precision, giving you superficial to deep resurfacing action. This laser peel procedure is suitable for multiple treatment areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Chest

Our highly-trained professionals can determine the most suitable coagulation and ablation options from the Contour TRL technology’s independent controls to deliver your desired results.

What Contour TRL Does to Your Skin

Contour TRL’s laser resurfacing action targets a broad range of skin concerns and stimulates collagen production, giving you tighter and more vibrant skin. Patients wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance can benefit from this cosmetic procedure because it:

What to Expect from Your Contour TRL Procedure at aNu Aesthetics

aNu Aesthetics is a trusted med spa and wellness clinic in Kansas City and Leawood, offering a wealth of solutions to achieve your aesthetic goals and promote overall wellness. Contour TRL is one of its cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of skin impurities, revealing tighter and more glowing skin.

Preparation for Your Contour TRL Treatment 

Patients can expect a customized treatment plan for their Contour TRL treatment at aNu Aesthetics. You may discuss with our board-certified specialists your skin condition and aesthetic goals, whether you’re aiming for a superficial or deep laser peel. They will explain thoroughly the procedure’s method of action to let you know what to expect from the treatment. 

Our highly-trained practitioners will advise you of the following instructions to prepare for your Contour TRL procedure:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin, fish oil, or ibuprofen
  • Avoid skin care products with retinol at least 24 hours before your procedure
  • Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages and smoking cigarettes at least 2 weeks before your treatment

Our trusted professionals will also assess your condition to ensure that you’re suitable for the procedure and serious adverse reactions. We will examine your skin and obtain your medical history. We may prescribe antibiotics if you’re prone to developing fever blisters or cold sores to prevent infection.

Treatment Session

Patients may expect highly-trained professionals to perform their Contour TRL treatment, equipped with advanced tools and techniques to keep your procedure as safe and comfortable as possible. Your laser resurfacing treatment usually goes as follows:

  1. Localized anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to reduce discomfort. For deeper treatments, subcutaneous local anesthetic may be injected.
  2. The skin will be cleansed and sanitized.
  3. You’ll wear protective eyewear to prevent eye damage from the laser.
  4. The Contour TRL device will be glided across your skin as it treats the entire area.
  5. A computer-guided scanner will target a red beam on the treatment area, vaporizing your skin with a fine-tuned laser.
  6. A cooling device may also be used during and after your procedure to reduce discomfort.
  7. A laser balm or ointment to act as a protective barrier will be applied after the procedure

Your Contour TRL procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. You may also expect pinpoint bleeding throughout the treatment – this is a normal reaction to the laser resurfacing treatment and shouldn’t be worried about. 


Patients react to pain differently due to varying tolerance. Many of them can tolerate the discomfort from Contour TRL treatment due to receiving a topical or subcutaneous anesthetic. We may also prescribe anti-anxiety medications to prevent pain and keep you relaxed throughout the procedure. 

You may discuss with our friendly and supportive professionals your pain tolerance to provide more options to reduce discomfort. We always check on our patients throughout the procedure to ensure their comfort.

What to Expect After Your Contour TRL Treatment at aNu Aesthetics

Patients may expect side effects after their Contour TRL procedure – these are normal reactions of your skin from the laser treatment. You might want to ensure following the aftercare steps as prescribed by your practitioner to ensure a safe and smooth recovery.

Side Effects

Like many laser skin resurfacing procedures, Contour TRL involves several side effects as laser targets your skin to peel the top layers of the skin and promote the production of new collagen. Some of these adverse reactions are similar to the sensation of having a sunburn. After your Contour TRL session, you may expect:

  • Redness that lasts for 8 to 12 days post-treatment
  • Swelling 
  • Pinpoint bleeding that lasts for 24 to 72 hours post-treatment
  • Tightness
  • Warmth
  • Soreness
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Flaking and peeling

Our board-certified professionals at aNu Aesthetics perform a thorough screening and consultation to prevent serious reactions from this treatment. We’ll also provide instructions to reduce discomfort from these adverse reactions. 


Patients will follow a series of aftercare instructions to promote a safe and smooth recovery from their Contour TRL procedure and reveal radiant and youthful-looking skin. Our highly-trained professionals will advise you to:

  • Apply a cold compress to relieve swelling.
  • Elevate the treated area to prevent further swelling and premature peeling
  • Take prescribed pain medications like Tylenol or Benadryl to reduce discomfort and control itching
  • Continue taking antibiotics and antiviral medications, as prescribed by your doctor
  • Avoid rubbing or picking on the flaking and peeling of the treated area
  • Avoid using exfoliation products while the skin is healing
  • Avoid getting shampoo on the treated area when showering
  • Ensure applying occlusives that act as barriers for 10 days post-treatment to keep your skin protected and hydrated
  • Avoid drying out your skin
  • Wash the treated area gently
  • Clean the treated area with the prescribed solutions
  • Apply sunblock daily once your skin is healed
  • Avoid sweating and vigorous exercise 2 weeks post-treatment
  • Avoid direct sun exposure 2 months post-treatment


Recovery from Contour TRL depends on the depth of the laser skin resurfacing action. Superficial laser peels usually take 3 to 5 days to recover, while deeper treatments take 10 to 14 days with lingering redness. But it’s important to know that the healing process varies from patient to patient, so recovery may take a bit longer.

When to Expect Results

You can expect improvements in your skin texture, skin tone, and wrinkles as you heal from your treatment. You may expect its full results after 4 to 6 months after new collagen has been produced and taken effect on the skin.
