There are two types of wrinkles that develop on your face, regardless of whether you’re male or female: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles.
What are static wrinkles?
Static wrinkles are any lines or creases that you can see all the time, even when you’re not making an expression. They’re basically permanently etched on your face, caused by collagen and elastin depletion as well as decreased levels of hyarluonic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in your skin that binds with water to add volume and plumpness.
What are dynamic wrinkles?
Whenever you smile, cry or frown, your skin creases. These creases are called dynamic wrinkles, because they only appear with movement.
The thing with dynamic wrinkles, though, is that eventually, they do turn in to static wrinkles. This is especially true in areas where the skin is more delicate, like around your eyes (think crow’s feet and glabellar lines). That’s why BOTOX is so popular – because it limits the amount of movement your muscles can make so as to prevent creasing the skin and forming those dynamic wrinkles.
But once those dynamic wrinkles turn into static ones, BOTOX will be less effective. At that point, you’ll need to turn to Juvéderm for help. Juvéderm adds hyaluronic acid to your skin, plumping it and effectively smoothing out that pesky wrinkle.
