I’ve heard that Botox works on dynamic wrinkles. What are dynamic wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are those that are present when the muscle is contracting. Eventually dynamic wrinkles evolve into static wrinkles which are present with or without muscle contraction. Botox works to relax the muscle therefor decreasing opportunity for the wrinkle to form. With persistent use and skincare however static lines may improve also. Clearly greater intervention such as chemical peel and laser can make further improvement.
