Dynamic lines are expression lines; It occurs with the contraction of small muscles under the skin during mimic movements (frown, speaking, laughing…). The contraction of these muscles settles on the skin over time and creates permanent lines and wrinkles.

Botox, by blocking the passage in the nerves in the injection area, "prevents muscle contraction", provides the tension of the skin here, opens the lines.
