OUR OFFICIAL GUIDE TO WRINKLE SLANG

02-05-19 | Posted by


Confused by all of the different terms for wrinkles? Why does your doctor call them ‘Crow’s feet”, yet all the magazines call them something else entirely? It’s hard to keep it all straight.

We’ve got your back with the Official Beauty In the Bag Guide to Wrinkle Slang.

 

  1. Canthal lines. This is the medical name for the clusters of tiny wrinkles and fine lines that form around the outer corners of the eyes.  They are also called crow’s feet, laugh lines and character lines.
  2. Crow’s feet. These are clusters of tiny wrinkles and fine lines that form around the outer corners of the eyes. They are also known as laugh lines and character lines.
  3. Elevens (11s). These refer to the two vertical lines between the eyebrows that make you look angry and cynical, even when you are not. They are also called frown lines.
  4. Frown lines. These lines refer to the two vertical lines between the eyebrows that make you look angry and cynical. They are also called elevens.
  5. Glabellar lines. This is the medical name for the two vertical lines between the eyebrows that make you look angry and cynical. They are also called elevens (see #3).
  6. Laugh lines. These are clusters of tiny wrinkles and fine lines that form around the outer corners of the eyes. They are also known as crow’s feet and character lines.
  7. Lip lines.  These are vertical lines above the lip. They are commonly referred to as smoker’s lines or lipstick lines.

The good news, says Dr. Sam Rizk, a facial plastic surgeon in New York City, “Today we have many options for addressing fine lines, wrinkles and deeper creases with injectables such as BOTOX (Allergan), Dysport (Galderma) Xeomin (Merz Aesthetics), and the newly FDA approved Botox rival Jeuveau (Evolus), as well as a wide range of hyaluronic acid gel based fillers, and energy-based devices.”
