Close Wounds is an Adept-level Restoration spell available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Close Wounds restores 100 points of Health to the caster (without the Regeneration perk) at the base cost of 126 Magicka. Unlike Healing, which casts continuously, Close Wounds needs to be charged then released. This spell has a better magicka/heal ratio than its lower-level counterpart, Fast Healing.


  • At Novice Restoration level 20, the Regeneration perk increases the healing to 150 points.
  • At Novice Restoration level 40, the Respite perk also restores 100 points of stamina.
  • Necromage – If a vampire, this spell heals the Dragonborn more, since it makes their spells against the undead more effective.
  • Restoration Dual Casting – Doubles the health given to the Dragonborn, making it 150 (without regeneration perk)
