Treating Dynamic Wrinkles
When discussing cosmetic medicine, and the world of aesthetic enhancement treatments, while there are tons and tons of different treatments out there, the vast majority of issues are designed to treat one common enemy – aging. The fact of the matter is that the older you get, the worse your skin will usually be. with each and every day, our skin is constantly degrading, and we are losing vital skincare proteins and naturally-occurring compounds that are responsible for not only providing our skin with its youthful look and feel, but also responsible for protecting our skin from environmental issues and outside elements that are damaging our skin. according to the team at Alluring Image, the best medical spa Delray Beach has in practice, one of the most common issues that we often associate with aging is the presence of unwanted wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds. Now wrinkles will eventually come from everybody, and while some of us might have slightly better genes than others, nomatter what wrinkles will develop over time. And while aging is the main cause, there are a few smaller causes that occur as a result of time as well. The two most common reasons for wrinkles to develop are years and years of facial expressions and the muscle contractions that occur as a result of these expressions, and the loss of facial volume that occurs as we lose those skincare proteins and compounds such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. And while the latter of which are known mainly as static wrinkles, the former, known as dynamic wrinkles is one of the biggest concerns, as they are often considered to be the most difficult times of wrinkles to treat. Using an injectable dermal filler like Juvéderm, static wrinkles are easily treated. However, dynamic wrinkles will require the use of neurotoxin injectables like Botox an Dysport – which will essentially paralyze the facial muscles and stop them from contracting – something that just sounds way worse. In this article, we will explore these types of wrinkles and how their treatment works.
Static Versus Dynamic Wrinkles
When it comes to anti-aging facial treatments, the use of injectables has become a favorite amongst patients of all ages, and demographics. The fact is that the use of an injectable dermal filler like Juvéderm, of an injectable Neurotoxin like Botox or Dysport, can help alleviate a wide variety of age-related issues, and mainly they are able to treat a wide array of wrinkles and fine lines. Its important to understand that wrinkles are divided into two major types, dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles appear when expressing emotions, such as fear, worry, joy, sadness, or surprise. You will notice them when you smile, laugh, frown, cry, or during moments of deep concentration. Dynamic wrinkles fade as quickly as they appear. Once the emotion passes and your face goes blank, you will no longer see them. The most common types of dynamic wrinkles include frown lines along the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and smile lines. When it comes to Botox injections cost is a key factor, and as such you want to know that you are getting your money’s worth, and you are able to treat these wrinkles. One of the major reasons Botox has been a favorite amongst all patients and is the most common procedure, is because of how effective it is at treating all these different types of dynamic wrinkles which are usually much harder to treat.
Now, when we are discussing static wrinkles however, according to the team at Alluring Image, the best medical spa Delray Beach has in practice, they tend to remain on the face even after our facial muscles relax and tend to deepen with age. They are typically a source of frustration and can make someone in their 20s and 30s look older than their age. Examples of static wrinkles include lines at the corners of the mouth, across the cheeks, and along the neck. As we age, our skin begins to lose valuable skincare compounds like collagen, and its production decreases it causes the skin to lose its plumpness, and coupled with the lost of elastin, a compound responsible for skin elasticity, it can also cause a combination of both static wrinkles – from the lack of plumpness, and dynamic wrinkles – from the loss in elasticity.
Treatment for Dynamic Wrinkles
Now, as we have mentioned above, while we commonly associate dynamic wrinkles with facial expressions, its also important to understand that it is also the loss of collagen coupled with the loss of elastin that causes such wrinkles to develop as well. Now because neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport are the preferred option for the treatment of facial expressions they are seen as the first line of defense when it comes to dynamic wrinkles that are mainly caused by the repetitive movements and contractions of the facial muscles. This muscle-relaxing injectable targets tissues below the skin’s surface and is most frequently used for treating lines around the eyes, lips, and on the forehead. Once injected, it temporarily paralyzes the source of the movement. Treatments can be administered every three to four months to help you maintain results. Now due to a series of factors, including Botox injections cost, and the simple fact that individuals may not want to temporarily paralyze their facial muscles, despite it being a safe procedure when used in moderation and done by an experienced professional, a patient may want to opt for the use of an injectable dermal filler like Juvéderm or Restylane. According to the team at Alluring Image, the best medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, while these are mainly used in the treatment of static wrinkles, the fact that an injectable dermal filler not only provides a filling action to combat facial volume loss, but the fact that it can also help to stimulate the production of natural collagen and elastin, means that it can also help in the long-term treatment of dynamic wrinkles as well. But everyone’s wrinkles are different, this is why its important to consult an expert, and to see with trial and error what works best for you.
