Reduce fine lines and sun damage.
Thank you for your question. This is not a substitute for an in person consultation. We have been using PicoSure Focus to treat sun damage with great results. PicoSure Focus will also improve skin texture, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Continue to use sunscreen.

You appear to have moderate sun damage at your early age. Its important to wear sun protection every day on all sun exposed parts of your body. This will help prevent future damage.
For the already established damage, medical skin care could be helpful.
Certain IPL treatments can help improve the skin. But the most dramatic improvement would come from ablative skin resurfacing.
I hope this was helpful.

My recommendation is to try chemical peels and maybe combine them with a facial. Chemical peels safely exfoliate the top layer of dead skin, this will cause a natural cell turnover process to speed up, helping to stimulate the growth of new collagen.
Light peels, administered by a doctor, can help firm skin and reduce the appearance of fine likes. Use at-home versions regularly between visits to exfoliate and further battle the onset of wrinkles. If you'd like to try something stronger with more impressive results I suggest the retinol peel. You will have about 5-7 days of peeling/down-time. You might also like to consider using collagen boosting products, such as vitamin c and peptides. Since you have dry skin make sure you are using an appropriate moisturizer and makeup packed with non-drying ingredients.
Your other option is a laser skin tightening treatment. Here at my practice I created a 3D skin tightening laser treatment, combining two different lasers it helps stimulate collagen. This treatment has no down-time and results will last for up to a year.
