Wrinkles happen. That’s why Vively Body Science provides you with wrinkle treatments that can combat them, and even prevent them.
Contact us with any questions you might have about our treatments, and read on to learn more about the types or wrinkles and how to smooth them.
Two types of wrinkles
Aging naturally gives us wrinkles. However, the wrinkle location and depth can have different causes, and different ways to address them.
Lines that appear along your neck, maybe at the corners of your mouth or across your cheeks are most likely “static wrinkles.” This type of wrinkle begins appearing when we’re in our 20’s, starting small. It will grow deeper and more permanent as time robs us of collagen and elastin in our skin.
You’ll find static wrinkles especially in these areas:
- Below the inside corner of your eye
- From your mouth corners up to your nostrils
- Across your neck
- At your mouth edges extending to your jawline
- Across your cheeks
Static wrinkles stay visible even when your face is at rest. Often, you’ll see this kind of wrinkle appearing along with “jowls.” Botox can help as one of your static wrinkle treatments in Wayzata, but your Vively Body Science provider may suggest alternative solutions for this issue.
Do you have a facial expression you’re known for? Maybe a special laugh where your eyes “crinkle up,” or a nose-wrinkle the kids have known all their lives? Certain facial movements, when repeated over time, etch lines into our skin.
When those lines become permanent, they’re considered to be “dynamic wrinkles.” They’re caused by the muscular movement of the skin from the expressions we make repeatedly, and remain even when our muscles relax.
The most common areas dynamic wrinkles show up include:
- Between the eyebrows (frown lines)
- Forehead wrinkles (glabellar lines)
- Crow’s feet (smile lines)
- Mid-cheek lines (laugh lines)
- Lip lines (lipstick lines)
When we’re young, dynamic wrinkles go away when we stop making the expression. Since the aging process robs skin of collagen, elastin, and other skin-replenishing properties, this repeated stress on the skin creates those permanent wrinkles.
Botox is well-suited as a wrinkle treatment to address dynamic wrinkles because it works on the muscles rather than just on the skin.

What does Botox® treat?
You may not have wrinkles yet, but knowing they start in your 20’s means preventative measures can be taken at that age. Botox can help to address those early, newly-forming wrinkles along with keeping those muscles from forming future wrinkles. And it’s one of the terrific wrinkle treatments in Wayzata for all ages.
Botox and other neurotoxin injectables are used to treat and prevent:
- Wrinkles/lines on the forehead & between the brows
- Crow’s feet
- Lip lines/upper lip (a “Botox lip flip”)
- Jawline / TMJ
- Neck lines
- Lines on lateral brows
- Nasolabial folds
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
One of the pluses of Botox being non-permanent: if you don’t like the results, the effects wear off after a few months. If your provider hasn’t over-dosed the treatment area, your results should look natural, healthy. When pursuing wrinkle treatments in Wayzata. The only noticeable effect from correct Botox injections will be less wrinkles!

Dermal fillers are specific formulations used as wrinkle treatments in Wayzata to smooth deeper wrinkles. They work in target areas by gently “filling in” under the skin, removing hollows, and giving some lift where skin has sagged. Dermal fillers work for a number of wrinkle treatment concerns:
- Lips: Plump and enhance your lips, plus diminish vertical lines.
- Nose & mouth: Smooth out/reduce nasolabial folds and lines.
- Cheeks & temples: Restore and/or enhance sunken cheeks or temples.
- Chin: Smooth out a chin crease
- Facial features: Improve symmetry among your facial features
- Tired skin/lips: Give your skin and lips the lift and fullness they deserve.
- Hands: Can reduce wrinkles on your hands to make them look and feel younger.
Different products and techniques achieve different goals. For example, you might be targeting your lips for fullness. For your jawline, you can use other dermal filler formulations to define your bone structure. And the same goes for filling in your under-eye hollows, or smoothing out your brow wrinkles.
Depending on the treatment area and your aesthetic goals, Vively Body Science will customize a plan that addresses your concerns.

Wrinkle Treatments in Wayzata: Botox vs Dermal Fillers
The basic difference between Botox and fillers boils down to a simple distinction. Botox doesn’t fill in the wrinkles and lines. Dermal fillers do.
They are both “injectables,” but as wrinkle treatments they operate very differently. Contact us at Vively Body Science in Wayzata with any of your questions. We’ll be happy to answer them!
