Wrinkles may be either dynamic and/or static.
A wrinkle is called static when is it is present at rest. Static wrinkles appear when the skin has lost sufficient elasticity and collagen for a crease to appear.
A dynamic wrinkle is a crease which appears during movement. Once again, loss of elasticity and collagen play a role in the formation of this crease. Actually, very young skin will stay completely smooth when frowning or raising eyebrows.
Therefore, in order to treat wrinkles, we can work on 2 aspects :
- Reducing movement using botulinum toxin treatments
- Rendering the skin younger by increasing its elasticity and thickness
- Using dermal fillers
- Using technology which warms the skin.
