Default Long Creases in Dashboard Leather

Hi, I hope this isn't too obnoxious of a question, but my dashboard has these pretty big creases in them. I'm trying to make them look better and prevent it from happening in the future.
After looking around online, I'm still not sure if dampening or conditioning or what exactly is the best. Haven't found pics that look like mine. I bought it used so I don't know what happened but I assume it's sun damage. In the photo they are near the windshield. There is also a long one on the glovebox side.

Thank you for looking!

I would think the heat you guys experience out there is not going to help matters but I would get some conditioner from Gliptone or the Furniture Clinic and massage it into the leather.

If you do it often enough it should help to reduce the appearance of the wrinkles.

Default Same Issue

Did you ever get a resolution to this? I'm not having the exact same issue with my 2012 XF. I noticed it after my car wash did an interior detail, and they put a protection cream on my dash. Would love to hear how you resolved it. My local dealer said there wasn't anything you can do.
