Default Reduce Seat Creases?

Just pipicked up a new rx...does anyone have tricks they've used to help reduce the amount of creasing that shows on the thigh support section of our leather seats? I understand it will always occur but maybe someone has creative ideas on how to proactively slow it down or disguise it?

I've kept leather conditioner on ours and they still look good. Other than that I'm not sure there is much you can do. I've read about people steaming them out, but I've never tried it.

Creases are natural wear on the leather. It is not an issue, nor can it be avoided...... unless you don't sit in your seat, of course.

The issue becomes when those creases turn into cracks. This can be avoided by keeping your leather clean. There are tons of existing threads in here about leather cleaning, so just have a read through some of those and you'll be in good shape.

I had an item I put on the center compartment cover put marks in the leather, I used a heat gun / hair dryer very carefully massaged the area as I applied the heat, and got rid of the marks, it can't be so hot you can't touch it. It worked real good. Just be careful.
