Botox is well known for its remarkable effectiveness in eliminating or decreasing the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and ‘water bottle lines’ around the mouth. These types of wrinkles are more specifically known as dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles result from contraction of the underlying muscle over time. Botox works by reducing the muscle’s ability to contract, which causes the overlying wrinkles in the skin to disappear.
Static wrinkles are not related to the underlying muscle. Over time, they arise from a loss of volume in the tissues below the skin and are very effectively and safely treated using dermal fillers. Nasiolabial folds (the wrinkle lines that connect the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth) and ‘marionette lines,’ (the wrinkle lines extending downward from the corners of your mouth to around your chin) are the most commonly treated static wrinkles.
