Different Types of Wrinkles and Methods to Minimize Them

As we age, our skin goes through changes, some of which are not always desired. These can include a loss of elasticity, thinning of the skin, and, of course, wrinkles. For most people, wrinkles are inevitable, but there are preventative measures and treatments to minimize the appearance of both shallow and deep wrinkles. Premier Cosmetic Surgery offers dermal fillers for wrinkles by some of the best plastic surgeons in Delaware. Getting older means that we acquire various types of wrinkles in our skin, but there are two that often grace our skin: dynamic and static wrinkles.

What are Dynamic Wrinkles

Wrinkles that develop due to repeated facial movements and expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles include:

These are not usually permanent, as they are created as muscles of the face are flexed and relaxed. However, these dynamic wrinkles can become static over time. Overexposure of the skin to harmful UV rays and smoking can cause these wrinkles to become permanent earlier in life.

What are Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles form as a result of gravity’s impact on the face as well as a loss of elasticity in the skin. They remain even when the muscles of the face are relaxed. As a person ages, they use their face muscles more, collagen levels drop, and skin thins. This results in fine lines and wrinkles. For those that are worried about static wrinkles making a permanent change to your face, there are prevention methods to lower the chance of wrinkles forming and treatments from plastic surgeons in Delaware to reduce their appearance.

Prevention and Treatments

For younger individuals who wish to delay the appearance of wrinkles, there are a variety of preventative measures that can keep skin looking wrinkle-free longer. The harmful rays of the sun have significant negative impacts on the skin. Wearing proper SPF daily can protect your skin and reduce sun damage. Proper hydration can also keep skin looking and feeling plump and vibrant. There are a number of hydrating skincare products and moisturizers to provide acute and long-term benefits for the skin.

While some choose to embrace their “life lines”, there are others that wish to turn back the clock. It might be too late for some to take preventative measures, but certain treatments from one of the best plastic surgeons in Delaware can make fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable and even disappear. Here are just a few services we offer for wrinkle reduction.
