Whether you are hoping to correct fine lines and wrinkles, conceal an imperfection, plump your lips, or restore volume to your face, dermal fillers are an excellent non-surgical treatment option. If you are considering dermal fillers, you may be wondering whether you are the ideal age for this treatment. Luckily, the answer is that there is no ideal age –individuals from their twenties all the way up to their eighties can benefit from dermal fillers, however, both the goal of the treatment and the anticipated outcome vary depending on your age.
More and more women in their twenties are now interested in dermal fillers for lip plumping, particularly now that lip injections have become so popular. Individuals who are troubled by the appearance of facial scarring caused by acne or chickenpox, may also turn to dermal fillers to fill and correct these small imperfections. In addition, both Botox and dermal fillers together can be used preventatively for clients in their 20’s, to thwart early signs of aging like smile lines, brow furrows and loss of cheek volume.
Both men and women in their thirties and forties request dermal fillers to delay the onset of the aging process, preventing the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds in the face. Common treatment areas include crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and depressions beneath the eyes otherwise known as tear troughs. The subtle results achieved with this treatment help people to make small adjustments that go undetected but allow them to look more youthful and rested. In addition, many patients in this age range opt for dermal fillers due to their temporary benefits. Unlike a more permanent and invasive surgical procedure, such as a facelift or fat-grafting, dermal fillers last anywhere from 9 to 24 months, which allows people to appreciate the effects without making a life-long commitment.
Patients in their 50s and up who hope to restore volume to their face or reduce the appearance of wrinkles will often opt for dermal fillers if they are uncomfortable spending time or money on more invasive surgical alternatives. At this age, loss of collagen can result in “sunken” cheeks, which can often be effectively corrected with fillers. However, while dermal fillers can be effective at any age, it is important to be aware that individuals who have significant skin laxity or volume loss may be better suited to a facelift if they hope to achieve dramatic results.
