Dynamic Wrinkle Treatment in Miami, FL
A frown here, a laugh or smile there. These small facial movements might not seem like much. But, after years and years of smiling, frowning and making other facial expressions, you’re likely to see the effects on your skin. Dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles created by years of repeated facial movements, are often the first lines people see on their face. No matter what you’re really feeling, dynamic wrinkles can make you look angry, tired or just older than your years.
Since dynamic wrinkles are so common, it’s no surprise that some of the most common cosmetic treatments, such as Botox and Dysport injections, treat them. Injectables provide a temporary solution that doesn’t require much downtime, making them an ideal pick for busy men.
Benefits & Treatment Areas
Dynamic wrinkles can occur in any area of the face that moves regularly. Common areas for treatment include the “frown lines” between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines on the forehead, and the corners of the eyes (“laugh lines” or “crows’ feet”). Treatment with injectable botulinum toxin (Botox or Dysport) can soften these lines significantly on a temporary basis, making the face appear much more youthful and masculine.
In order to choose the best treatment plan for you, you will need to know what you’re dealing with. Consultations are important for any cosmetic procedure, as it allows Miami Beach area patients and Dr. Walder’s practice to discuss your individual needs, goals, and lifestyle. Dr. Walder and her associates will assess your skin and make recommendations about the types of procedures that are likely to give you the results you’re looking for. During your consultation, you should ask any questions you might have about the process.
Candidacy requirements depend on the type of procedure that will be performed. For Botox and Dysport injections, there are very few limitations on candidacy, and the procedure is affordable and temporary, so there’s almost no reason to not give it a try.
Injectable Botox and Dysport treatments work by limiting facial muscle movements in the face, just enough to ease wrinkles, but not enough to affect facial expressions. The treatment is very brief, typically lasting only a few minutes when performed by an experienced provider. The effects of Botox and Dysport last approximately 3-4 months, and in order to maintain results, it is recommended to repeat treatment
Botox and Dysport treatments require no downtime and have few side effects. The most common side effects include redness, and less commonly, swelling and bruising at the injection site which typically improve within hours of treatment. Patients can resume normal activities immediately. Some men even choose to have these treatments on their lunch break and then return to work the same day.

What are the most common areas for dynamic wrinkle treatments?
The forehead, between the brows, and the corners of the eyes, as these are high movement areas in the face, prone to dynamic wrinkles.
Are Botox and Dysport safe?
Botox has been used in medical contexts for over 30 years, and in cosmetic treatments for over a decade. It is a tried-and-true product with millions of satisfied patients. Dysport is a similar product with an excellent track record of safety and good results. Complications are extremely rare, and safety should not be much of a concern for using these products.
Can you get Botox and Dysport injections when you’re young to prevent dynamic wrinkles?
It has become a practice of late among young people to pursue botulinum toxin injections for the purposes of preventing dynamic wrinkles. As healthy adults are eligible for the procedure, it is not dangerous to do so, but the benefits (or lack thereof!) are still unclear.
How do I know if my wrinkles are “dynamic”?
Dynamic wrinkles are most apparent when you tense your face, and appear only in high movement areas. Static wrinkles, the other major type of wrinkle, can be seen even when the face is at rest.
When will I see results from treatment?
Botox and Dysport produce results within 7-10 days after treatment.
