Best way to smooth out wrinkles fast!

Light Peels - alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids
                  Good for:  Lightly refreshing the skin
                  You’ll notice:  Subtly smoother, more evenly toned skin and less blemishes

Medium Peels- trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
                  Good for: Correcting moderate wrinkles, lines and sun damage
                  You’ll notice: Significantly smoother skin that’s more even in tone with fewer lines and spots

Deep Peels - phenol acid
                  Good for: Extreme resurfacing
                  You’ll notice: Drastically smoother skin sans wrinkles and pigmentation
Understanding the Strengths: Just like how ingredients, such as retinoids and vitamin C, are available in different strengths, so are the peeling agents used in chemical peels.

On the Low End: Each acid ranges in strength—single digits and 10 percent concentrations are on the more gentle side; 20 to 70 rank on the higher end.

Stronger Peels Offer an Advantage: The higher the percentage of the acid used in a chemical peel, the more damage reversal it can do for your skin.
How deep a peel can go: Light peels reach just the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin to lighten discoloration, transform texture and fight breakouts

Medium strength peels work on the middle dermis or the layer of skin between the epidermis and the dermis for more serious resurfacing.

Deep peels get down to the dermis, the lowest layers of the skin, to dramatically soften lines and wrinkles
Dr Sikat, MD, based in Monaco, swear by the Bio Identical Hyaluronic Protein serum for post peel.
In my practice we use it for post skin peel and have the patients take a bottle with them to use at home for post peel treatment.

Bio Identical compounding is a brand new technology where the topical compound can be metabolized by the skin tissue rather then creating chemical dependency. The Bio Identical Hyaluronic Protein serum  is for topical use, but can be used in Mesotherapy treatments which is a sub-dermal application of distributing the protein below the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis)

Created with low molecular weight for super deeper penetration!

Lines and Wrinkles start to appear in the mid 20's 

It's all depends on a series of factors for examples diet, environmental exposure, hydration, smoking, drinking, SPF, vitamin C usage, etc. 

The best one can do is prevent before problems become too prominent and you will need professional intervention - I normally recommend all patients to start with a Vitamin C serum and form of Retin-a treatment . 

Incorporate DAILY SPF Usage and gradually adding more products as necessary - Let us not forget sensitive areas like the eyes and neck - 

The more you do now the less you will have to do later.

 If theres more severe damage, there are many ways to treat and nothing like a good chemical peel to get things started!
