I'm considering having the laser procedure this winter but I'm not sure if it is what I need or not. I have been told that it would help me. I have some sun damage, a few wrinkles, some wrinkling on my neck, and I have a reddish tone to my face. I have a picture somewhere on here, but I can send one directly to anyone who would be interested in giving me their opinion. I recently had Botox around eyes and laugh lines filled in, it looks much better! I want to do a little more though. Thanks!
