Another thing to consider with deep wrinkles is the location - what works for nasolabial folds may not work for forehead. As such, all permutations would be almost impossible to include. Instead, I will focus on some of the options for dealing with deep wrinkles. Keep in mind that wrinkles can be due to...
Deep wrinkles have a lot of treatment options

Without seeing or knowing what your specific concerns may be, it is nearly impossible to say what your options would be. Some wrinkles can be treated with Botox and fillers... Some may need Botox, filler and some type of laser resurfacing...and still others may require all of these things in addition to surgery for the best result. If...
Filler Injectable Procedures such as Radiesse, Juvederm, and Restylane are excellent for deep wrinkles. However, the effective duration may be about 6 months. For a longer term solution, laser resurfacing techniques such as erbium and profractional may prove beneficial.
Options to treat deep wrinkles
Using fillers to volumize and solutions such as Botox or Dysport to treat the underlying tight muscles is a good course of action for deep wrinkles. Factors such as where they are located and how deep the wrinkles actually are will play a role in the type of treatment that may be most successful. The best course of action is to schedule an exam with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, allow him or her to examine your condition, and then discuss the best treatment options available based...
