As well as rejuvenate skin tone. I've considered for sometime how to best address some skin concerns I have. I have some uneven skin tone on my face, I'd like to even out. It's a mixture of pigmention and sun damage. I've turned 40 and started to get a few wrinkles around my eyes and enlargining pores around my nose. Nothing major but I'm conscious of it and want to reduce them. Not sure the best treatments. There are many options available but I get a bit confused about which is most effective. Some pics attached.
I'm looking to freshen up my appearance. I have some pigmentation and pores i'd like to reduce. (photos)

Freshen up your skin
Early Aging, Management
Thank you for your question. While there are many devices that can help with the changes in your skin, I highly recommend tried and true measures:
1) skin care with sun block, retinol and vitamin C (or other antioxidant),
2) Moderate Depth Peels.
Actinic damage (sun damage) and natural aging are best fought off with nightly retinol and vitamin C with a protective sun barrier during the day. It is simple, effective and will have a great result and prevent further damage at little cost. A TCA peel done by an expert can also provide a "jump start" to this regimen and reverse much of the already existing damage. Both these skin care regimens and peels can assist with pore size. If these simple and relatively low cost measures do not work enough you can then consider more invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing.
