Hi Dorian, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with your answer but I have just returned from my London clinic.

The most important aspect of your topical regime is to use sun avoidance and a good SPF that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.
Unfortunately, there is no topical product on the market that will dramatically reduce wrinkles, especially those that are relatively deep and created from muscle movement. If you do not what to consider Botox I would add the following to your topical regime:
Glycolic acid peels, anti-oxidants such as Prevage MD, and vitamin A
If you would like to see a faster and a more aggressive improvement of these wrinkles you may have to consider using a series of medium depth peels (TCA peel) or laser skin rejuvenation. Lasers such as Fraxel will require 4 to 6 sessions while the Lumenis Ultrapulse FX will require only 1 session.
