I'm a 29 year old female with stomach wrinkles. I'm thin, but I feel like years of using tanning beds and smoking has destroyed my skin. Is there anyway to improve this?

Sagging skin on lower abdomen.
Your lower abdominal skin appears to be fairly normal for a 29 year old. You did mention two habits which are hard on skin and cause premature aging, namely tanning beds and cigarette smoking, so eliminating these aggravators will be to your advantage. Skin tightening systems such as Sciton SkinTyte, Titan, Thermage and Excilis will certainly help tighten skin that is not needing surgical intervention. Although there is a paucity of scientific evidence, I have patients who swear that Strivectin works so check that out as well.
