The number one sign of ageing – fine lines and facial creases – can be frustrating and inevitable. While this may be universally true, all wrinkles are not created equally. There are two types of facial lines, Dynamic and Static. Each has a unique cause, requiring a different treatment to obtain optimal results.
1. Dynamic Wrinkles:
Facial creases and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements are called Dynamic. Years of continued squinting, worrying, frowning, and smiling, can eventually cause deep lines on the skin. Frown Lines (between the eyebrows), Forehead wrinkles, and Crow’s Feet are just a few examples of Dynamic Wrinkles.
2. Static Winkles:
Fine lines and wrinkles resulting from a loss of skin elasticity are called Static. As people age, the skin’s collagen breaks down, and the tissues become lax. These can be further agitated by genetics, a poor diet, and smoking. Examples of Static Wrinkles include lines at the corners of the mouth, along the cheeks, and neck wrinkles.

Dynamic Wrinkle Treatment:
Botox Cosmetic is a muscle-relaxing toxin, therefore, a perfect solution for smoothing wrinkles and creases that occur from repetitive muscle movements. As the targeted muscles are temporarily paralysed, they will relax, and wrinkles will smooth. The results from Botox Cosmetic take about two weeks to appear and last from three to five months.
Static Wrinkle Correction:
Dermal Fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are excellent choices for smoothing Static Wrinkles. These products safely fill in lines and wrinkles; the results can be seen immediately and last between six and twelve months. Comprised of naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid, Dermal Fillers encourage the body’s Collagen production.
How to Prevent Static Wrinkles:
Static Wrinkles are the easier of the two types to avoid; good skin care, moisturisers, and sun avoidance can help keep your skin taut and smooth.
How to Avoid Dynamic Wrinkles:
Dynamic Lines and Wrinkles can only be avoided by limiting muscle movements, although it is difficult to refrain from smiling or frowning. Not smoking and restraining frequent straw usage can help to prevent lip lines.
