Wrinkles: The Two Main Types

March 10, 2017

Wrinkles, lines, and folds can form anywhere on the skin. The face is particularly susceptible to these issues. There are two categories: dynamic and static.

Dynamic wrinkles only occur in the moments when using your facial muscles. This happens when you are smiling, frowning, or sneezing. When the facial muscles contract, they disturb the surface of your skin and cause imperfections to temporarily form.

Static are noticeable even when your facial muscles are not being used. These are a result of the muscles becoming stiff and sore, causing them to remain in a contorted position that produces wrinkles on the skin.
