Three Types of Wrinkles and the Best Spa Treatment for Each

If you’re looking for ways to reduce the signs of aging, you’re not alone. But before you start trying to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, it’s good to know precisely what type of wrinkles you're dealing with. 

There are actually three distinct types of wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles, static wrinkles, and wrinkle folds. Keep reading to find out the differences between these types and the best spa treatment or service for each.

What are dynamic wrinkles?

The repetitive contraction of muscles under the skin causes dynamic wrinkles over a period of time. These wrinkles typically appear when muscles are actively in use, in the areas between your eyebrows and on your forehead, and as crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes.

The best spa service for dynamic wrinkles

Because dynamic wrinkles aren’t visible when your facial muscles are at rest, preventative spa services are the best choice if you want to prevent them from settling into static wrinkles. (More about those in a minute!)  

Botox is an excellent option for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Small Botox injections relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. It’s particularly effective for reducing and relaxing wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. 

Another excellent service for dynamic wrinkles is our Laser Genesis treatment. It is a preventative treatment that improves collagen production to diminish wrinkles. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to combat those first signs of aging.

A Microcurrent Facial is another great choice for achieving visible anti-aging results with no downtime. During this treatment, “anti-aging infusion serums nourish the skin while the microcurrent technology improves your facial contour and revitalizes the eye and lip areas.” This energizing treatment reduces visible wrinkles and increases collagen production, leaving you with more youthful skin.

What are static wrinkles?

Static wrinkles remain visible when your facial muscles are not in use. However, dynamic wrinkles can turn into static wrinkles over time. 

This type of wrinkle comes from overall aging, skin damage and gravity, including fat and collagen loss, as well the skin’s diminishing elasticity.” They are also caused by sun exposure, poor nutrition, and smoking. 

The best spa service for static wrinkles

There are several effective spa services and treatments for reducing the appearance of static wrinkles, including Fillers.

Fillers are a stellar choice to reduce static wrinkles because they fill in wrinkles and add volume to restore a youthful look.

What are wrinkle folds?

The natural aging process causes wrinkle folds wherein facial structures begin to sag. They typically develop in the grooves surrounding the mouth and nose. These specific wrinkle folds are called nasolabial folds.

The best spa service for wrinkle folds

Microneedling and fractora are the two best spa services for reducing the appearance of wrinkle folds.

Microneedling is a great choice for reducing wrinkle folds. This treatment uses a safe device to cause tiny injuries through “micro needles” rolled over the skin, which prompts the skin to heal itself by naturally producing more collagen. This boost in collagen and elastin production improves your skin’s elasticity and firmness, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Fractora treatments use fractional energy to heat the deep layers of the skin. This revitalizes collagen production and leaves you with more youthful, tightened skin. It is an excellent choice because the radiofrequency technology visibly and significantly minimizes wrinkles and lines. 

The bottom line

While you can’t stop the aging process altogether, you can prevent the signs of aging with these safe and effective treatments. Our specialists will customize your treatment to your exact skin needs to get the best possible results.
