Non-surgical cosmetic procedures: How young is too young?
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures like anti wrinkle, facial fillers and lip fillers have been steadily increasing in popularity over the last decade or so.
The growing trend for celebrities to document their cosmetic surgery results on Instagram and Snapchat has meant that everybody from 20-somethings to 50-somethings are jumping on board the non-surgical bandwagon. But how young is too young when it comes to procedures like these?
Preventative Anti Wrinkle treatments in your 30s – is it necessary?
According to expert dermatologists, the best time to have Anti wrinkle injections is between the ages of 35-40. This of course depends on your skin colour and the type of lifestyle you lead. For example, if you work outdoors or spend all your time in a sunny climate then you may wish to have treatment around age 30. There are even dermatologists who suggest having a anti wrinkle procedure in your 20s can prevent the need to have more invasive procedures later on – good news if you’re uncertain about going under the knife!
Facial and lip fillers in your 20s
There’s really no need to have facial fillers in your 20s. As we age, the amount of collagen produced by our skin decreases, meaning skin loses its elasticity and tautness, causing that familiar sagging. From your mid-30s onwards, facial fillers are a popular option to provide plumpness, target lines and wrinkles and regain that youthful glow. Anybody under the age of 30 would be better opting for a good skincare routine and a protective moisturiser with SPF, or preventative Botox.
When it comes to lip fillers however, we’ve all seen celebrities like Kylie Jenner show off their impressive pouts. There’s no real age limit when it comes to dermal fillers to plump your pout, and because this is a non-invasive procedure, it’s quite safe when carried out by a registered, experienced medical professional. Lip injections use hyaluronic acid fillers, a substance which occurs naturally in the human body, so as far as cosmetic surgery goes, they are one of the most popular procedures around.
Cosmetic surgery doesn’t have to be invasive to give you great results, but if you want to look your best then it pays to know which non surgical procedures to consider and when.
