What would work on my severely sun damaged skin?

Severe Sun Damage
Severe sun damage is one of my favorite things to treat because it is so beautiful to see someone's skin so beautiful. Fraxel is a fabulous way of reversing the sun damage. We call it the "magic eraser" in our office. I think it is an amazing laser and we have seen terrific results. Please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in lasers for the best results.
Forever Young BBL for Sun Damaged and Aging Skin
There is good science with 10 year data showing that Forever Young BBL treatments can reverse the signs of aging skin, especially from sun damage. Sciton BBL will treat the superficial and deeper layers of the skin.
Creams and lotions tend to work only temporarily and superficially.
To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
A consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon would be the first step....

Sun Damaged Skin Treatments
You may want to consider photodynamic treatment which is a combination of Levulan a topical photosensitizer that concentrates in precancerous cells and either blue light or intense pulsed light as the activating light source. This procedure leads to photochemical destruction of pre-cancers and improvement in background chronic sundamage. The result is better skin coloration and texture as well as a reduced risk of subsequent skin cancer.
There are so many good options for this.
