Non-ablative or combined ablative-nonablative Erbium laser resurfacing is best
You may well be happy with these non ablative no down time treatments alone. However, if after 3 treatments you want more wrinlkle removal, skin tightening around the mouth, improvement in crow's feet, then I would do a 4th session combining the 1540 Erbium non-ablative treatment with a fractional ablative 2940 Erbium treatment.
Recovery time, comfort and skin texture are all better with the Erbium. Down time is about a third of that of CO2.
Laser treatments, sun-damaged skin
There are numerous lasers available to treat sun damage and fine lines of aging. Fraxel is an excellent option to rejuvenate your skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines. In addition to lasers, chemical peels may have a role also in improving the texture of your skin. A good skin care regime should also include a retinol such as Retin-A as well as topical vitamin C.

Hard to answer this question without a picture of what your skin looks like.
In general, I would recommend a non-ablative device and the photorejuvenation process. You would have a series of treatments and then if necessary, can have occasional maintenance treatments. All of your concerns could be addressed with such treatment - fine wrinkles, redness, sun damage, etc.
