Dynamic Vs. Static Wrinkles: Examples and Treatments
In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basics on dynamic wrinkles versus static wrinkles. These are two different wrinkle varieties that often refer to more temporary types compared to more permanent ones, and they will often come with different treatment recommendations within a medical spa.
At the offices of Steven Jepson MD, we’re proud to offer several treatments that deal directly with skin wrinkles. Our Botox injections are the most well-known here, certainly, but we also offer dermal fillers like Juvederm that are often ideal for certain kinds of wrinkles or facial lines. Today’s part two of our series will dig into some examples of each wrinkle type so you understand what we’re referring to, plus a quick word on the ideal treatments for both types and why the assistance of our med spa professionals is vital here.
Dynamic Wrinkle Examples and Treatments
Dynamic wrinkles, as we went over in part one, are often temporary wrinkles that form based on facial motions like squinting, smiling, frowning or laughing. However, as we also noted, they may become more permanent over time. Examples of dynamic wrinkles include issues like crow’s feet around the outer eye, frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead creases and various other forehead lines.
While there are a few treatments that can do well for dynamic wrinkles, the most common and often the most effective is Botox Cosmetic. This is a popular injected treatment that relaxes the targeted muscles, allowing tissue to re-form back into a smooth, soft shape. Botox not only corrects dynamic wrinkles, it also stops them from worsening or even taking place to begin with moving forward in many cases.
Static Wrinkle Examples and Treatments
Static wrinkles, on the other hand, form when the skin in the area in question has lost its elasticity and moisture over time. This leaves the skin droopy and lax, with fine lines and creases forming as a result. Examples here include jowls or sagging cheeks, drooping eyelids, lip lines and more.
In some cases, Botox will be used for static wrinkles as well. However, there are others where dermal fillers are ideal here, allowing for a plumping up of the skin that will eliminate lines that have formed due to drooping or sagging.
