In brief: Wrinkle creams

Moisturizer, sunscreen and Retin-A are the best things one can do to try to reverse photoaging.
Fraxel laser resurfacing and portrait plasma treatments can be done on those patients who haven't been able to do such a regimen for long term to improve their texture and coloration.

In brief: Think Laser

Once wrinkles have set in, creams may have a limited role.
I do recommend topicals with Retin-A and anti-oxidants, however you really need to try to stimulate new collagen and resurface the skin with laser procedures to see true "correction" in fine lines and wrinkles. Not all lasers are created equally, so seek the advice of a reputable laser surgeon in your area for more info. Hope this helps!

In brief: Retin-A cream

Retin-a cream (tretinoin or retinol) has been proven effective.
So, any cream contains such ingredient (prescription cream with tretinoin, otc cream with retinol) should help.

In brief: Retin-a

Its the best wrinkle cream out there.
Neocutis has a nice line with growth factors that help. Alpha hydroxys increase skin turnover so using different products can help achieve better results.
