Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that can be seen only when facial muscles contract as when you smile, frown or raise the eyebrows. Over time, dynamic wrinkles can progress to permanent wrinkles as the skin develops a memory for repeated instances where we frown or move our faces in such a way as to create dynamic wrinkles. To prevent permanent wrinkles, Botox injections are typically the go-to treatment. Botox relaxes the muscles and prevents the formation of dynamic wrinkles. It can also smooth out wrinkles that have already become permanent. For very deep permanent wrinkles from muscle contraction, a filler is sometimes needed in addition to Botox to achieve an optimal result. For facial wrinkles due to photodamage or unrelated to muscle contraction, laser treatments such as the Sciton Profractional can be very helpful. Tailored treatment options to suit your individual needs can be provided during an in-office consultation.
