Skin Rejuvenation Procedures for Dynamic and Static Wrinkles

The telltale signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin can be corrected with a number of skin rejuvenation treatments. Many people resort to facial rejuvenation procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and other non-ablative methods to get rid of or diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and achieve clearer, more youthful looking skin.

Dynamic vs. Static Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are the expression lines and grooves that appear and deepen when a person is making facial expressions. Static wrinkles are those that are visible all the time, and must be treated with different procedures and techniques. Some people may require a combination of static and dynamic wrinkle treatments based on the condition of their skin.

Skin Rejuvenation Procedures for Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are typically light and less-defined than static wrinkles, which is why non-ablative lasers and skin resurfacing treatments may be the best wrinkle removal treatment options. Some of the best skin rejuvenation procedures for these types of wrinkles include:
  • Dermabrasion
  • Microdermbrasion
  • Laser skin resurfacing (e.g., Fraxel)
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy
  • Deep chemical peels

Skin Rejuvenation Procedures for Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles can be more difficult to treat than dynamic wrinkles because they consist of deep grooves and permanent lines that may have taken years to develop. Some of the best skin rejuvenation procedures for these types of wrinkles include:
  • Collagen or hyaluronic acid injectable fillers
  • Dermabrasion
  • Laser skin resurfacing treatments (a series)
  • Titan or Thermage skin tightening treatments
  • Facelift surgery
Some people may benefit from a combination of skin rejuvenation procedures such as injectable fillers followed by a series of skin tightening treatments, or laser skin resurfacing followed by a chemical peel several months later as a ‘touch up’ treatment. Whatever the case may be, the final result is a significant reduction or the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, and a more sculpted, smoother appearance.
The latest technologies and treatments in skin rejuvenation procedures are helping many people achieve a more youthful appearance and say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles for good. Skin rejuvenation treatments are only an option for those who do not smoke, are in good physical health, are not taking any drugs or medication that may interfere with treatment results, and those that can tolerate a mild amount of pain. Some of the more aggressive treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, may require the application of topical anesthetics and a skin-soothing cream after the procedure.
Most doctors and medical aestheticians will provide a comprehensive post-treatment skincare plan that includes serums and creams that promote healing. Whether you undergo microdermabrasion and chemical peels for dynamic wrinkles, or facelift surgery and skin tightening treatments for static wrinkles, you can look forward to lasting results.
