What is the best age to have cosmetic injectables?
Whether you’re taking a preventative approach or want to focus on existing lines and wrinkles, here’s what you need to know about getting cosmetic medicine.
Today, more and more people are turning to non-surgical beauty treatments such as wrinkle relaxers
and dermal fillers.
If this is something you’re considering, you might be wondering what age is best to get cosmetic
medicine and how it works to address the signs of ageing.
It’s important to be informed about the treatment before making any decisions, so we’re breaking down
how cosmetic injections can fit into your beauty routine at different stages of your life.
In your 20s
Lines and wrinkles aren’t typically a major concern for people in their 20s, as collagen production is still
high and the subcutaneous fat pads under the skin are still full and firm – giving you that plump,
However, wrinkle relaxers can be used as a preventative measure are this stage to help slow the signs of
ageing. It works by temporarily ‘relaxing’ the active muscles underneath the skin, which can help
prevent possible wrinkles and fine lines from forming.
Filler is also an option at any age for adding volume to the lips and giving them a plumper appearance.
In your 30s
Collagen and elastin production start to decrease from your mid-20s, which affects the skin’s support
structure. Fine lines and wrinkles start to appear and skin becomes thinner, which can make the signs of
ageing more visible.
It’s around this age that many people start noticing makeup creasing or sitting in the ‘frown’ lines.
Wrinkle relaxers can help to target fine lines and prevent them from getting worse.
In your 40s
At this age a loss of facial volume and fullness can be seen as hyaluronic acid levels drop and the fat pads
beneath skin start to shift and decrease in size. This can result in a sunken or tired-looking appearance,
which is when wrinkle relaxers and filler can help soften lines, smooth out wrinkles and restore volume
back to the face.
