Yes: Retinol, a form of vitamin a, is found in many otc products. Your local pharmacist can suggest a product but l'oreal, neutrogena, and oil of olay all make nice products with retinol. After you have a chance to try one of the products you can get stronger levels and a good skin care regimen from a dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon. Deeper lines may require fillers or laser for more results.
