I am 74 years. Can Botox or Radisse help to reduce my deep wrinkles?

A 74 year old often needs a combination of things.  Lasers  can help with fine lines.  Depressed regions can be treated with facial fillers or even fat, and loose skin and depressed cheeks can be treated with facelifting procedures.

Botox and fillers

The question about how to correct your wrinkles depends more on where they are than how deep they are.  Botox and Radiesse are used to correct different problems so the question may be more appropriate to ask whether Botox AND Radiesse could help reduce your wrinkles.  Without a photograph, it's difficult to make any suggestions or give you any advice.  In some situations, a volumizer such as Sculptra might be more appropriate.  A board certified dermatologist can help you make the appropriate decision.
