Atrophic Crinkling Rhytids
These are the fine lines we commonly see on our skin that are parallel to each other. They usually show in different parts of the face and body. However, it disappears when the skin is stretched transversally. This kind of wrinkles is usually associated with loss of elasticity on your skin.

Permanent Elastic Creases
These are crease lines that are visible on your skin that becomes permanent over time, especially when your skin’s exposed to the sun. They frequently show up on the cheeks, the upper lip and the base of the neck. Smoking and sun exposure makes these wrinkles worse. So, the only way to prevent this is don’t smoke and minimize sun exposure and of course, use a sunscreen.
Dynamic Expression Lines

These lines are due to the effects of gravity which becomes obvious as skin begins to fold and sag. However, you may think that thicker skin may have more folds, but according to researchers, a lean face may show more gravity folds than a plumper face. For this kind of wrinkles, cosmetic surgery is needed, like face lifts, that are effective in removing these kinds of wrinkles.
