Laser Resurfacing Procedure at a Glance
Each treatment can resurface about 25 to 30 percent of skin. Dr. Wudel recommends scheduling three HALO™ treatments, spread out over several months.
Length of procedure: 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the area treated
Length of recovery: New skin returns within a few weeks but full recovery takes at least a month — during that time you’ll need to avoid skin irritants like lotions and cosmetics

Frequently Asked Questions
Laser resurfacing isn’t without feeling — most patients experience some discomfort. However, topical anesthetic or cooling methods are often used to minimize any potential pain. We’ll discuss your unique needs during our consultation.
The recovery period varies depending on the intensity of the treatment. Typically it takes about one to two weeks for the skin to fully heal. During this time, you may experience redness, swelling and peeling — don’t worry, though, we’ll provide post-care instructions to help you expedite the healing process.
The number of sessions required depends on you — your skin concerns, your comfort level, and your needs. In some cases, a single session may be sufficient, while others may require multiple. We’ll figure out what you need together.
The longevity of the results depends on various factors: skin condition, lifestyle choices and ongoing skincare routine. Protecting your skin from sun exposure and maintaining a good skincare regimen can help prolong the benefits of the treatment.
