Laser skin treatments are incredibly popular, and it’s easy to see why. They are versatile enough to address a variety of skin issues that people want to find permanent solutions for. Oh, and yes — avoiding long recovery time is a huge bonus.
We’ve written about the revolutionary Sciton Halo Laser, which we offer here at Live Young Wellness Spa. But there are so many incredible options, including the Contour TRL Laser. This blog post explains the differences between the two, their unique benefits, and how to choose which one works best for your individual needs.
Sciton Halo Laser:
The Sciton Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It is effective at improving the appearance of numerous skin conditions such as sun damage, uneven skin tone, visible signs of aging, scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. What’s so fascinating about the Sciton Halo is that it combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass to maximize results and control downtime. Our patients typically return to work and their everyday lives soon after.
Contour TRL Laser:
Contour TRL is designed to resurface the skin by safely removing a layer of damaged and aging skin to a depth determined by your physician. The depth of treatment will depend on the skin condition, desired outcome, and expectations for downtime. Still, it is great for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes and pigment irregularities. Because Contour TRL can affect tissue with micron precision, your physician can treat your skin with the exact amount of energy needed.
Which one is better for you?
If you want to completely resurface your skin and allow fresh, healthy cells to grow, then the Contour TRL is for you. Granted, the Sciton Halo will treat all the same skin conditions and more, but it isn’t meant to resurface the skin. With that being said, the Sciton Halo doesn’t have significant downtime (3-4 days). The Contour TRL comes with 7-21 days of downtime. The bottom line is that the decision to choose one over the other depends on your specific needs, what you AND your doctor think is the best solution, and whether or not you can stand a little downtime.
