What Kind of Wrinkles Can be Treated With Anti-Wrinkle Treatments?

By: Kim Burke


When it comes to aesthetic services, anti-wrinkle treatments are – without question – among the most popular and widely used today. This is in part due to the fact that almost everyone develops wrinkles at some point in their life, often earlier than expected. When choosing which wrinkle treatment may be right for you, it is helpful to have a better understanding of the different types of lines and wrinkles that develop on your face. In this blog, credentialed nurse practitioner and aesthetic expert Kim Burke explores the wide range of anti-wrinkle treatment options available at Kiss Aesthetics in Minooka, IL and Tinley Park, IL, and discusses which wrinkles may be most responsive to each.

How can I smooth out facial wrinkles?

Lines and wrinkles on the face are some of the first signs of aging to appear, and they often progress rapidly when left untreated. By addressing your lines and wrinkles as early as possible, however, you can stay looking younger for longer and, in some cases, actually slow their progression. Because there are two distinct kinds of wrinkles – static and dynamic – and because each responds to a specific class of treatments, it is important to know the difference and what your options are.

Dynamic vs. static lines

Dynamic lines are wrinkles that are caused by facial expressions and muscle movements. In our youth, these lines come and go as we smile, frown, and squint. As we age, however, dynamic lines can stay visible even while the face is at rest. Static lines, on the other hand, are deeper lines and folds that develop as the result of facial volume loss, collagen loss, and skin laxity. Common examples of dynamic and static lines include:

Dynamic lines

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • 11 lines
  • Glabellar lines
  • Frown lines

Static lines

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines

Which treatments are best for facial lines and wrinkles?

Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX® and Dysport®, are highly effective at temporarily relaxing facial muscles to smooth out dynamic lines and wrinkles, like forehead lines and Crow’s feet. Injectable dermal fillers are more suitable for the treatment of static lines, like nasolabial folds, and can also be used to restore lost volume in the cheeks, lips, and under the eyes.

Additionally, skin rejuvenation treatments can help to further minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles while also addressing other concerns, such as:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough or patchy skin
