Injectables are a great way to refresh your appearance and smooth out facial lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery. At Aspira Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we are seeing an increase in the number of younger patients who want injectable treatments like Botox® and fillers in their 20s. Here are some of the reasons why early treatment might be beneficial:
Delaying Wrinkles with Earlier Treatments
Many of our younger patients hear about how neuromodulators like Botox® may delay the onset of wrinkles in the forehead and eye area. Because crow’s feet and smile lines are some of the most obvious wrinkles on the face, using Botox® is very appealing. Lines in the upper part of your face form because the muscle contractions pinch the skin, so the idea is that early Botox injections protect the skin from these wrinkle-inducing effects of facial expressions.
Boosting Collagen Before It Depletes
Collagen volume loss is a natural part of the aging process and is partly responsible for the development of fine lines, and wrinkles. This loss of collagen and volume begins around your late 20’s and continues to decline as you age. With collagen and volume-boosting injectables like Juvederm®, patients can maintain their collagen and volume levels early on to prevent the development of wrinkles around the nose, mouth, lips, and chin.
Determining Your Skin Age
Most people focus on a person’s chronological age when determining the right time to start injectable treatments, but skin age is a more important factor. Each person’s skin ages at a different pace based on lifestyle choices, sun exposure, genetics, and more. Some people in their late 20’s who avoid sunlight and do not smoke, for example, may have younger looking skin than their peers who spend a great deal of time outdoors. As such, there really is no hard and fast rule for what chronological age someone should start Botox® or fillers.
