Default Help with Weight Loss Wrinkles

I have happily lost 73 pounds and am continuing. I have noticed that my face wrinkles are more pronounced. My coach and my online research says this is from losing fat under the skin in the face.
So I was wondering if anyone has any creams that they find are particularly effective for wrinkles.
Also has anyone tried RetinA?
Thanks for any input!!

Do some research on Vitamin C facial products? Not only do they brighten your skin but they also tone. I have a mask that I use once per week for many years....wrinkles at 50 years of age are very few.

I want to check out the Lifestyle lift. It looks like the results are amazing.
Sorry, just realized you wanted creams.

I've been hearing lots about No 7 products being amazing and even stars are beginning to use it.

I know you are asking about creams but as a treat for myself when I reached goal, I splurged and got some Restalyne (filler) in the "marionette" lines under my mouth. It did help but at 6 months, I think I need a "refill".

Thanks everyone for all of the good advice!
I will definitely look for Vit C masks and No. 7 products. I think I should start doing a weekly mask and indulge in a monthly facial.
Woolberger..I will keep the filler option available when I reach goal.
Watkat: I have also seen the Lifestyle lift ads..look intriguing.

Not a problem. I have several different masks that I use by a company called Image Skincare. Unfortunately, you can't purchase them in stores or online.....I've tried. Years ago, I was having some serious problems with cystic acne so I opted to go to a esthetician for help. She was a godsend and taught me a home care system. I saw her every 6-8 weeks for about 9 months. It has been so worth the inital investment. Image has a Vital C line (excellent products) and I use the hydrating enzyme mask after I use their Clear Cell medicated acne masque (great for blackheads). Every other week I use their Ageless total resufacing masque. I am considering adding their Vital C cleanser and serum as well....one day!

Serious Skin Care (via HSN) has an excellent Vitamin C line as well. I have used several of their products but I keep going back to the Image products due to my oily skin.
