For best results, velvet should be dry cleaned. But to freshen the pile and remove creases, steam can be used on the wrong side of the fabric. A hand steamer works well as does holding the garment over a pot of boiling water. In both cases, never allow the garment to become wet. For very light wrinkles, hanging the garment in a steamy bathroom may do the trick.
Never iron velvet. Ironing will crush the fibers and leave a near-permanent imprint.
