Dynamic lines are those that occur with facial movement and expression. With the continued and repeated use of facial muscles combined with volume loss, loss of subcutaneous fat, changes to facial bones, and loss and damage to collagen and elastin within the skin that happen as we age, these dynamic lines eventually form static lines which are present at rest.
Dynamic lines can be successfully treated with anti wrinkle treatments which target the specific muscle group and work to temporarily reduce movement in the area resulting in less visible wrinkles.
Anti wrinkle treatments work by blocking the messages transmitted between the nerve and the muscle meaning muscle cells are unable to contract. The reduction in muscle contraction reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevents the formation of new ones.
Anti wrinkle treatments are useful wherever there are dynamic lines or areas of overactive muscle. Areas that are treated include:
Bunny lines (nose)
Dimpling of the chin
Upper lip lines and corners of the mouth
Masseters (Jaw slimming)
Platysmal bands (neck bands)
