Wrinkles on Face: Get Youthful Skin with Latest Treatments and Tips

As we age, various types of wrinkles start appearing on our faces. A few wrinkles on face appear dynamically on expression while others are static. Dynamic wrinkles (that appear in facial expressions like smiling, laughing, frowning, etc) are very common on the upper third of the face, while others usually appear on the lower two-thirds of the face.

As explained above, we have mainly two types of wrinkles on face: dynamic wrinkles & static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are formed by facial muscles, due to repetitive use during facial expressions. So the person who smiles a lot will have more crowfeet and wrinkles on the sides of the eyes, for the same reason. Static wrinkles & fine lines are due to structural changes in skin and surrounding tissue such as subcutaneous fat and connective tissue. 

Ageing Skin - Wrinkles on face, Facts and Treatment

Wrinkles are an inherent aspect of aging, marked by the natural decline in collagen and elastin production, resulting in diminished skin elasticity. Sun exposure, especially to UV rays, accelerates skin aging by breaking down collagen and elastin fibers, contributing significantly to wrinkle formation.

Repetitive facial expressions, such as smiling or frowning, lead to expression lines due to the repeated folding of the skin. Smoking exacerbates wrinkles, as tobacco smoke contains harmful chemicals damaging collagen and elastin. Dehydration intensifies the appearance of wrinkles on face, emphasizing the importance of proper hydration for maintaining skin elasticity.

Neglecting skincare, including moisturizing and environmental protection, can hasten wrinkle onset, emphasizing the need for a consistent skincare routine. Additionally, genetic factors play a role, and individuals with a family history of early or prominent wrinkling may be predisposed to developing wrinkles earlier in life.

Treatment & Therapies

There are several treatment options for facial wrinkles, ranging from medical interventions to lifestyle modifications. Common therapeutic modalities include topical agents such as retinoids, botulinum toxin injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing.

Dynamic Wrinkles that appear on facial expressions are best treated with Botox or Botulinum Toxin Injections. The most common dynamic wrinkles that impose cosmetic concern are – crowfeet, Forehead Lines & Frown Lines (or line of 11). Other less common dynamic facial wrinkles such as Bunny Lines, and Lip Lines (Smoker`s Lines or Lipstick Lines) are also best treated with Botox Cosmetic Injections.

Static wrinkles are those wrinkles on the face that appear even with no expression on the face. Fine lines and open pores seen on aging skin can be treated with various cosmetic skin treatments like Vampire Facial, Carbon Laser Facials, HIFU, Thread Lift, etc. On the other hand depressions, deep lines, and hollowness on the face are best treated with Dermal Fillers (Juvederm)
