Dynamic vs. Static Wrinkles

This is a guest post by Stacie Morris, a writer for Botox Ottawa. Stacie’s primary concern? Wrinkles, of course! Her favourite treatment is a customized skincare regimen at home (which includes peptide-rich products) and Botox.

Did you know that there are two types of wrinkles on your face? You’ve got dynamic and static wrinkles.

Dynamic Wrinkles
Remember when you were younger, and your facial skin was pretty much smooth all over when you weren’t expressing any emotion at all? When your face was neutral, your skin had no trace of crease or line. But as soon as your facial muscles contracted to allow the conveying of an expression, like smiling and frowning, a wrinkle appeared. When your facial muscles contract, the skin overlying them stretches and creases to accommodate their movement.
