I have been told that a derma roller + Vitamin E and C oil will help to smooth out wrinkles. Has anybody tried this?
I am a 70 year old woman, recently separated, and would like to ease wrinkles around my mouth and chin.

    There is only one way to fill a wrinkle, and that is to “spackle” it from the inside out. You can rub and roll and moisturize “till the cows come home, all for no benefit. Treat yourself to a vial of Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane or Juvederm from your local Derm or Plastic Surgeon. It will literally turn back the hands of time! I’m 63 and I don’t have a single line or wrinkle on my face.

    I love tarte’s maracuja oil for making my skin feel softer and smoother. For frown lines above and between your eyebrows, and laugh lines around your eyes, nothing works like botox. If done by a competent physician, the results can be very natural looking. For nasolabial lines injectable fillers work best.

    The reviews I’ve read have been mixed with the best results reported by those who had application done by a doctor. Although those reviews were positive the results reported were subtle and required more than one application. If the wrinkles on your mouth and chin are at all significant, you might also explore filers and/or Botox. Good luck to you.

    I think it’s great that you are interested in getting a softer look. I would consult with a dermatologist to find out what options would be best for you. There are many products/procedures available, and a doctor would help you sift through the information. Avon does have some great products- Anew Platinum Lip and Eye Cream, and Anew Pro Line Eraser-that help give a smoother look, if you want to try something in the interim, or want a non-invasive option.

    I hate to blow the balloon,but I did call my plastic surgeon and he laughed at me!
    According to him,and several other highly trained Dr. friends,the only things that work are dermal fillers,such as RADIESSE,Botox to lessen your wrinkle making efforts and plastic surgery.Creams and pressing machines may have a temporary pressing and or plumping effect but nothing lasts longer than say 15 minutes…tops.A roller that makes tiny puncture wounds in the dermal layer can only damage your skin.Just do like I do,exfoliate so the cream can get in to do it’s job and that should be enough to keep you fresh faced.It’s only when we do not exfoliate that skin does not slough off fast enough and traps dirt and what evers in the enviroment.And we should be seeing older models if not now,in the near future.If we do not expect to see a 75 year old looking like a 25 year old we may come to terms with the face we have earned…like men do.

    I have not used a derma roller, but have heard only negative things about them. I wouldn’t recommend anything done on your own that puts needles in your skin!

    As far as skin are is concerned, yes, Vitamin C is good, particularly for uneven texture and hyperpigmentation. C also increases collagen production—a key factor in seeing the appearance of wrinkles decrease.

    I think in order for you to have a proper answer, it’s necessary to know if you are talking DEEP wrinkles, lines, or fine lines. This is such a subjective analysis I know. ( I was hoping you had a photo with your profile) Many over the counter products with retinol– Vitamin A– are fabulous at helping lessen wrinkles.
    Of course, with any anti-aging regimen you undertake, it’s imperative that you use sunscreen on a daily basis.

    I’d love to hear back from you about your current daily regimen and the depth of your wrinkles so that I can recommend appropriate products for you.
    Best to you!

      Thank you, All of you.
      You have answered my question and then some.

      Tracybrown: I have been using sun screen since the early 1950’s, so the wrinkles are not that deep. But I would like to ease them a bit.
      Maria Comfort: When you say enzymes, what do you recommend? I am very confused by all these products.

      Again, Thank you all!!

    In fact, the derma roller can be quite successful as a penetrating device for the right serums and other products with micronized cell sizes. Enzymes are good products to penetrate. My successes with the derma roller addressing your same problem utilized hyalauronic acid folled by an LED treatment. This was effective and lasted.
    I would like to caution you to not penetrate creams, however, as their cell sizes are too large and could result in bumps under your skin.
