Chris Knight photo: how to achieve this effect

Hello,

I'm trying to achieve similar effect with lights like on this Chris Knight's photo:

https://cdn.fstoppers.com/styles/full/s3/media/2017/06/09/chris_knight_photography_2.jpg

However, whatever I do, I cannot hide the nasolabial wrinkle of my model, who btw doesn't have much wrinkles under the natural light, but under the strobe it becomes visible. I use one front strobe with 2' softbox and scrim, on a minimum power and one strobe with umbrella softbox on the side with a bit more power.

Do you think:

- Chris' model doesn't have wrinkle at all

- It's photoshopped

- It's hidden with the lights

I'd say it's probably all three, but I'd like to minimize it as much as possible with the lights, so I don't go heavy with the Photoshop later.

Disclaimer: I'm pretty new in the photography and I do this only as a hobby in my apartment. No fancy studio or bunch of lights and modifiers.
