COMPRESSION vs EXPRESSION. Great diagram from @cosmedocs showing the difference between wrinkles caused by tissue shift and compression VS expression and dynamic wrinkles. 🎯
Can you tell which is which??

LEFT SIDE - Most ageing wrinkles occur as a result of muscle expression, along with volume loss and sun exposure.
RIGHT SIDE - Sleep lines are different; they are caused by your face pressing on the pillow. Our skin is attached to underlying muscle and fascia, more so in some places than others. Parts of our face skin will move when we press down on a pillow, but when an area of the skin that is well attached to underlying structures resists the pressure of the pillow against it, that is where a line can form.
Vertical or oblique lines appear on the forehead, under the eyes, on the sides of the nose, and on the lower cheeks and chin. If you sleep on one side more than the other, you will notice the wrinkles developing there more quickly compared to the other side.
On the body, they most notably appear between the breasts.
As a side note, if you get your regular fillers, and you are a side sleeper, you might have noticed that the side you sleep on loses its fullness faster compared to the other side. Sleeping on your side flattens your filled cheek at a faster rate. #sleeplines
