Default Wrinkles in seat fabric?

Hey all,

I just pulled off my seat covers today for my spring cleaning and all the foam separated from the covers. Long story short, I'm going to keep the covers off, but they left deep creases/wrinkles around the headrests on both seats. Any ideas on how to get all the fabric and foam (on the factory seats) smooth and back to normal?

Only thing I could maybe suggest is light ironing?

Just park the truck in the sun and leave all the windows up. Let it get nice and warm it will pull the wrinkles out.
