Need some advice on treatments which claim to reduce skin wrinkles.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could advise on the safety and efficacy
of treatments which reduce skin wrinkles. I have heard of 4 different
methods:

1. Retinova/Renova cream, which can reduce fine wrinkles only.

2. Another cream which can reverse the effects of sun damage (can't
remember the name of this one).

3. Chemical face peels.

4. Some kind of laser treatment.

Do any of these have possible adverse side-effects? And how can I make
sure they are done by someone who is properly trained in the UK?

Thanks.
