Regarding an oil painting on stretched canvas, I have heard a suggestion that one can use an iron on a low heat on the reverse side to flatten dents or folds.
Elsewhere, it was said that heat will damage oil paint.
I'm pretty sure that I have read that applying heat is an acceptible technique from a qualified source, but can't remember where.
Csn you please give you views on this.
(Assume that the paint layer is thin, flat and smooth.)

I do not want to come off snooty here but both results are a
possibility, which is why we never suggest conservation treatments on this
