What Age is Too Young for Injectables?

Lines and wrinkles are said to be a right of passage. Something everyone will eventually have and should accept. Perhaps you should even wear your wrinkles with pride, right? Wrong. We are fortunate to live in a time and place where anti-aging treatments can stave off the effects of time, without surgery. But some people wonder when they should start receiving anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers and injectables like Botox and Dysport. When is it too young for injectables? Find out here.

When Does Facial Aging Begin?

While the aging process varies by individual, visual signs of aging can begin as early as 25. Our facial expressions, loss of volume and sun exposure all attribute to the aging of our skin. The moment lines first appear on our face, they will only continue to get deeper. When it comes to anti-aging, many of our younger generations have realized the benefits of taking preventative measures early on. Being proactive early on can prove to be more cost-effective as fewer treatments may be necessary in the future. This is because many of today’s treatments help boost collagen and hyaluronic acid production, resulting in less damage over time.

Facial Aging Broken Down by Decade

In their 30s, aging is most noticeable in the mid-face and chin because of a beginning loss of facial volume in these areas. The body begins producing less collagen and hyaluronic acid, which causes the face to look thinner and more angular. Dermal fillers can add fullness to areas that have a loss of volume. Botox and Dysport can also be used to temporarily halt the deepening of lines created from repetitive facial expressions.

In the 40s, the face continues to lose volume, often not uniformly. The most noticeable areas will be in the cheeks. Remember those lovely, full cheeks of youth? You can have them again by applying Restylane Lyft to rebuild thinned cheekbones. As the skin loses elasticity, it tends to sag creating lines around the mouth and excess skin under the chin. Restylane Silk is a perfect option for many seeking to naturally enhance their lips’ fullness or remove fine lines around the mouth. Also, Kybella is the only FDA approved, non-surgical treatment for the removal of fat under the chin.

In the 50s, 60s, and beyond, lines continue to deepen, especially around the mouth, forehead, brows, and eyes. Dermal fillers such as those in the Restylane family work well by minimizing these signs while enhancing your natural beauty. Sculptra is an excellent dermal filler for adding volume to the cheeks as it encourages the growth of new collagen and can last up to two years.

Natural Looking Results

The last thing you want is to look like you have had anything done. In fact, that is one of the biggest reasons women choose non-surgical anti-aging treatments. Every injector is different, which is why it is crucial that you select an aesthetic doctor that is skilled at the art of applying injectables. The right doctor can help you achieve your goal by using the right product, placement, and application for your unique needs

It is important to know that dermal fillers and other injectables do not permanently reduce lines, wrinkles and sagging. They are also reversible if the results are not as you envisioned. Aging will still occur, however, taking preventative anti-aging measures can minimize the deepening of lines and wrinkles. The sooner the treatments begin, the better.
