Yes, there are various therapeutic methods for correction of wrinkles and skin rejuvenation such as botulinum toxins injections (BOTOX), mesotherapy, microscopic polishing of the skin, chemical and laser peeling of the skin, surgical face lift, fat transplantation in the cheeks, cheek bones and skin. Even though they have visible benefits, but all these therapies are temporary in nature, require a downtime and are associated with various side effects. A few of these treatment modules are painful in nature and hamper the day to day activity of the patient.

The best way to achieve this is keeping your skin naturally healthy through diet, exercise, and maintaining the natural physiology of the skin. The best thing about all the above therapies is that they do not use foreign materials or harmful chemicals on the skin thus maintain the natural vigor of the skin.
