You may benefit from the use of antioxidant creams. There are a whole host of such products and you should see a board certified dermatologist to evaluate your skin. Revale intensive repair cream and TNS Essential Serum might help but it may take several months of constant use to see the improvement. If this is not enough, then consider a non-invasive rejuvenation procedure such as Fraxel Restore laser series of treaments. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
