Laser Resurfacing Procedure in Minnesota

Say Hello to Radiant Skin

What Is Laser Resurfacing?

Our laser resurfacing procedures are like a magical makeover for your face — without the need for surgery. Using gentle, concentrated light beams, it helps to correct or improve persistent skin problems by boosting collagen production.

By targeting the epidermis and dermis, lasers can minimize the appearance of pore size, help correct sun damage, cut down on brown spots, and even skin texture and tone.

After three treatments, you will see significant skin improvement in tone and texture. You will grow newer and healthier collagen, which can reduce wrinkles. You will also experience significant skin improvement from prior sun damage. Our clients love that they can look better, with little or no makeup, following their series of HALO™ hybrid fractional laser treatments.

What tools do you use for the laser resurfacing procedure?

  • The ProFractional laser resurfacing procedure uses a single precise laser that travels deep into your skin to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. This treatment focuses on problem areas instead of the whole face so you can use it to treat specific areas with wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, or similar trauma you want to address.
  • The HALO™ laser resurfacing treatment uses a hybrid fractional laser that fits all skin types. Have you heard about the HALO™ glow? There’s no more need to choose between ablative or non-ablative treatments — with HALO™, you can have both and reveal a dramatic reduction in dullness, wrinkles, fine lines, sunspots, and beyond.

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.

Outpatient/inpatient: Outpatient
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.
