Can Getting Dermal Fillers In My 20s Help Fight Signs Of Aging?
Over the last several years, the average age of cosmetic injectable patients has gotten lower and lower. This may be partially due to the increased availability and popularity of cosmetic injectables, celebrity influence, and other factors. However, it can also likely be attributed to the known benefits of starting injectable use early. At Brickell Cosmetic Center, top Miami skin doctor and aesthetic expert Dr. Lauren Dozier is committed to helping Brickell, Key Biscayne, and Coconut Grove, FL area patients of all ages look and feel their best with a complete range of facial rejuvenation treatments, including cosmetic injectables. Keep reading for an explanation on why it may be in your best interest to start injectables in your 20s or 30s, and find out which injectable products may be right for you.
What do injectables do?
Cosmetic injectables offer a long list of possibilities, from smoothing out lines and wrinkles to melting away fat under the chin. During your initial consultation for cosmetic injections in the Miami/Brickell area, Dr. Dozier will discuss your concerns and goals, explain all of your options in detail, and help you determine which product or combination of products may be right for you.
Do I need fillers or BOTOX®?
Many new patients are understandably overwhelmed by the number of choices they have when it comes to injectables. In addition, some patients are unaware of the difference between dermal fillers – like JUVÉDERM® – and injectable wrinkle relaxers – like BOTOX. While both types of injectables can make stunning enhancements to your face, each has a unique application. Dermal fillers are primarily used to restore lost volume and smooth out static lines and wrinkles, while injectable wrinkle relaxers work by paralyzing the facial muscle and smoothing dynamic lines on the skin’s surface above it.
Signs of facial aging treated with fillers include:
- Deep lines
- Facial folds
- Sunken-in cheeks
- Hollow undereyes
- Deflated lips
- Weak jawline/jowls
Signs of facial aging treated with wrinkle relaxers include:
- Forehead lines
- Brow lines
- Glabellar lines
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
Will starting injectables early delay aging?
Virtually nothing can slow or stop the aging process itself. However, starting injectable fillers and/or wrinkle relaxers at a relatively young age has helped patients delay the visible signs of facial aging and preserve their youthful look for longer.
How long do fillers last?
Many injectable dermal fillers can last for up to 1 – 2 years before a repeat treatment is needed. In younger patients, the results of fillers may last even longer, as the signs of aging are just beginning to develop. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, on the other hand, typically need to be reinjected every 3 – 4 months. In many cases, younger patients choose to undergo preventive BOTOX before the first signs of aging in order to delay or discourage the formation of dynamic lines for as long as possible.
