Types of Facial Wrinkles:

Facial wrinkles may show as fine lines or deep creases and folds. There are three types of wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles, static wrinkles, and wrinkle folds.

  1. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contraction of muscles of facial expressions under the skin. Examples of dynamic wrinkles: wrinkles between the eyebrows ((glabellar wrinkles), forehead wrinkles, and wrikles near the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). Dynamic wrinkles are best treated by Botox injections.

  2. Static wrinkles are caused by skin damage from sun, tanning, smoking, genetics, or poor nutrition. Prolonged dynamic wrinkling can cause static wrinkles. Belotero dermal filler is excellent for the treatment of fine static wrinkles.

  3. Wrinkle folds, are caused by sagging of the facial structures. Example of wrinkle folds: naso-labial groove. Wrinkle folds can be treated by dermal filler injections. Fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse are used to volumize the facial wrinkle folds and for cheek and lip augmentation.
