Chemical Peels or Laser Treatments
Based on what you have listed as your primary concerns, a combination treatment approach may be the best way to achieve an optimal result. Depending on what you are willing to tolerate regarding downtime will determine the type of treatment regimen your clinician will build out for you. There are advantages to peels and laser resurfacing treatments individually and in combination as they each offer improvements to support the softening of scars, fine lines and wrinkles while improving overall tone and texture. Therefore, when seeking out correction, know that you may need more than one treatment or a series of treatments to address all of your concerns. A chemical peel or two prior to a laser resurfacing treatment will prep the skin and allow for better penetration of light, thereby giving way to a more effective single laser resurfacing treatment(ablative) or series of treatments(non-ablative). You will also need a comprehensive home care regimen to maintain the health of your skin after your treatments to maintain your results. And be diligent about sun protection as well since the majority of skin aging is a direct result of sun exposure over time. And don't rule out injectables, such as fillers, as they can provide softening of fine lines and give a little nonsurgical lift to some areas. Regarding your eyes: I recommend you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon as chemical peels and laser treatments will not correct the the sagging of the upper lids and bags below the eyes.
