I am 32 and considering doing laser resurfacing now, before the effects of tanning in my 20's really begin to show. If I get a procedure done now, will it stop or slow the damage I did in my 20's? Right now, I have a couple of spots of discoloration and fine smile lines around my eyes. I am mainly interested in stimulating collagen production and preventing wrinkles.
Better to Do Laser Resurfacing Before Effects of Sun Damage Appear?

Laser and developing sun damage
As a young adult who is concerned about sun damage, I would suggest not using the lasers if you do not need them, and go on a good skin care regimen.
