Well that is a great question, what I can tell you is we can offer different treatment options for sun damaged skin, from peels to laser treatment depending on the severity. Your best bet is to come in for a complimentary consult and we can give you an exact answer and pricing since we customize each package depending on there needs, as for around the eyes we go just around the orbital but again come in and see us well take good care of you.
