What's the Differences Between Dynamic and Static Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but not all wrinkles are created equal. As we age our skin begins to lose its elasticity and vitality. (Just one of the many things to look forward to as we age, haha!!) These wrinkles fall into two categories: dynamic and static, but what does this actually mean? How are they different, and more importantly, how can we get rid of them if we decide we no longer want them?

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are the lines caused due to repeated facial movements like smiling, frowning, or squinting. These include crow’s feet and frown lines. Treatments like Botox® target the muscles responsible for these movements, smoothing out the wrinkles. These lines disappear when you relax your expression.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are lines that are visible and remain even when your face is at rest, resulting from a loss of skin elasticity and collagen over time. Treatments for static wrinkles focus on restoring volume and texture. Options include dermal fillers, skin boosters (like profhilo or seventy hyal) microneedling, chemical peels, and medical grade skin care including retinol and chemical exfoliators.

Treating Both Types

Certain treatments, like Microneedling or the Microdermabrasion glass skin facial, can address both dynamic and static wrinkles by boosting collagen production and improving skin texture.

Each individual’s skin is unique, requiring a tailored treatment plan. A consultation with Ellie can help determine the best combination of treatments for rejuvenating your skin and reducing wrinkles.
