In addition to the other wonderful answers given, your skin will be dryer and dehydrated due to the fact that the laser targets water in the skin. So basically it will seem dryer and cause wrinkles to look more visible for up to 1 month. Plenty of hydration topically will help and time. You will love your results!
After Halo, the skin is rough and is still healing in the deeper layers. It takes about 6-8 weeks for the collagen to rebuild. During recovery you may look a little worse but your skin should look better each week. If by 6-8 weeks the wrinkles are still a concern, follow up with your provider.

How scary for you! I'm sorry you're not getting more support from your office, but to a certain extent, what you're going through can be very normal. I'm curious if you had the same settings with your previous treatments as this seems to be a different experience for you.You've probably peeled already or are right around the time of peeling and during this time the surface of your skin is covered with the old damaged collagen which is being removed from your skin and replaced with fresh new collagen and skin from the laser treatment. This old skin is very dull and dehydrated.Even after your skin peels, it remains dull and dehydrated for about a week. I tell all my patients to expect to feel fully healed by day 10 and start to take on a really fresh glow by week 2-3.
Best of luck to you!
