Depending on the depth of the wrinkles, a combination of Botox and an ablative laser such as Fraxel repair or Pearl Profractional would be the best as these ablative laser penetrate into the upper depths of the dermis where the altered wrinkle dermis is. You may get some improvement with the 1540 laser but it will not be as good as the other ablative lasers which go deeper. Therefore how deep are your wrinkles?
