Wrinkles and Signs of Aging

Wrinkles and signs of aging stem from a variety of factors. The type of wrinkles or signs you exhibit determines the treatments that may benefit you most.


Static Wrinkles. These are a result of gravity and loss of elasticity in the skin. You’ll commonly find them in the lower portion of the face. They will be in the nasolabial folds, which extend from the lower corners of the mouth to the chin.


Dynamic Wrinkles. These wrinkles are a result of facial muscle activity. These appear in the top third of the face. Dynamic wrinkles include horizontal forehead wrinkles, crow's feet, and creases between the eyebrows(glabellar lines).


Facial Aging. One of the main factors of facial aging is volume loss. This first appears as a flattening of the cheeks and the skin around the mouth. Marionette lines will start to lead from the lower corners of the mouth down to the chin. You may notice a valley from the inner corner of your eye down to the cheek. This valley creates what’s called a tear trough.


The best treatments for facial aging and static wrinkles are dermal fillers. For dynamic wrinkles, patients see the best results from botulism toxin injections. Dr. Ryan and Dr. Mulakrey use toxin for other purposes, such as TMJ treatment.
