Dynamic wrinkles occur when you use your muscles to form facial expressions. For example, when you smile your eye wrinkles become prominent. When you frown, the vertical lines between your eyebrows become noticeable. When we are young, our skin springs back to its original position after making these facial gestures, but as we get older these dynamic wrinkles stay on the skin. They are now called static wrinkles.
Static wrinkles are the folds and lines that are present when we’re not forming facial expressions. They happen because as we get older, the natural substances that provide the skin with structure and volume decrease. These precious substances include collagen, elastic, and hyaluronic acid. Some static wrinkles are great to have such as laugh lines.
To keep your face looking refreshed and full of life, use quality skin care topicals (retinol, sunscreen, and antioxidants) and consider getting regular monthly treatments at your derm’s office.
