Most people see wrinkles or facial lines the same way – the nasty effects of aging, but did you know that there are different types of wrinkles?

Wrinkles can be classified into two categories – the dynamic wrinkles and the static wrinkles. Each has unique root causes and appears in a distinct manner. For each type to be properly addressed, both requires different type of treatments.

To know more, below is a brief overview of the 2 types of wrinkles: dynamic and static wrinkles.

Types of Wrinkles – Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles form from repetitive facial movements such as smiling, squinting, frowning, crying and puckering of the lips. Dynamic wrinkles appears after many years of muscle movement, which naturally causes wrinkling of the skin.

This type of wrinkle form in facial areas where there is greater movements such as between the eyebrows, across the forehead, around the mouth and around the eye corners.

How to Treat Dynamic wrinkles

The most popular treatment for dynamic wrinkles is Wrinkle reduction treatment , an effective injectable treatment derived from a neurotoxin that can relax the facial muscles causing wrinkles and facial lines. It is very popular because it is minimally invasive and require no down time. The effect of Wrinkle reduction treatment usually lasts 4 to 6 months from the initial treatment date.

Types of Wrinkles – Static wrinkles

Static wrinkles form due to a natural loss of collagen, elasticity and tissue volume, which results from the natural facial aging. Among these factors, the leading cause off static wrinkles is the loss of skin collagen. Collagen is an important protein that supports the entire framework of the skin. As you age, your normal production of collagen starts to slow down and the other existing collagen starts to break down. The continual pull of gravity along with the decrease in collagen level can take a toll on your face, with the creation of furrows and folds.

Static wrinkles commonly appear between the mouth or nose, and cheeks. The nasolabial folds are the most common area to show static wrinkles. But it is possible for static wrinkles to develop in almost anywhere on the face.

How to Treat Static Wrinkles

Perhaps the best way to correct static wrinkles is with dermal fillers – a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that can instantly smoothen face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Today, dermal fillers can provide patients with complete facial rejuvenation, providing patients with a fresh, radiant and youthful look.

Dermal fillers offers instant results, with little to zero downtime. In fact, you can easily undergo a full filler rejuvenation during their lunch break. The results of filler usually lasts between 8 months and 2 years, but this depends on the amount and type of filler used and the area where it is injected.
