Wrinkles caused by specific muscle contractions-such as crow’s-feet and between the eyebrows-are called dynamic wrinkles. In the early stages, they are only visible when the muscles are at work. But as time marches on, they can become etched into the skin and become visible while the face is at rest.
Botox is the number one way to diminish the muscle action that leads to specific lines and furrows before the wrinkles become a permanent fixture in the skin’s surface. Once dynamic wrinkles become static wrinkles (apparent when the muscles aren’t moving), only a forehead procedure or facelift can remove the excess skin that contributes to the wrinkling.
Injectables are also an option, though temporary, and they generally work by restoring the skin volume underneath the wrinkle to plump it up from the inside out.
Additionally, laser resurfacing can be used to smooth more superficial lines and wrinkles.
