As you age, chances are you'll start noticing new wrinkles on your face—but did you know that there are two different types of wrinkles? A recent article published in South Florida news outlet The News-Press examines the differences between static and dynamicwrinkles.
- Dynamic wrinkles – These are the wrinkles that form as a result of habitual movement and the way we express ourselves. For example, if you spend a lot of time outside, you may develop dynamic wrinkles around your eyes from squinting in the sun. When you're young, your skin can easily bounce right back after you squint, but as you get older, these dynamic wrinkles often become permanent.
- Static wrinkles – Static wrinkles can form regardless of how your muscles move. These are the types of wrinkles that are caused by the loss of the skin's elasticity, the loss of fat and collagen and gravity. Eventually, dynamic wrinkles can transform into static wrinkles.
The good news is that there are simple ways to smooth out the skin and reverse the signs of both dynamic and static wrinkles.
"Botox products are effective for dynamic wrinkles," reports the source. "A tiny injection of Botox in just the right places weakens the muscle, allowing it to relax, and removes the wrinkle. Botox is effective for wrinkles between the eyes, crow's feet and forehead. Dermal fillers can be effective for static wrinkles to replace lost volume and re-plump the tissue."
