Whether in your late 20s or 60s, you may benefit from BOTOX and/or fillers to get the smooth, youthful look you want. However, the best age to start BOTOX and fillers will highly depend on your unique needs and goals, as well as what you are hoping to get out of your treatment.
The Best Age for BOTOX
Some studies suggest that BOTOX can have preventative effects on new wrinkles if you start it early enough. However, most people simply do not need BOTOX injections in their 20s, as wrinkles haven’t begun to form yet. As a general rule of thumb, consider getting preventative BOTOX at the first sign of lines or wrinkles on your face. For many people, this starts somewhere in their 30s.
The Best Age for Fillers
The average age to start injectable fillers used to be between 40 and 50, although we are seeing an increased interest in people starting fillers in their 20’s and 30’s, and many people older than this age group also opt for fillers. Not only do fillers help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, but they can also add volume to your cheeks and/or lips, making them a popular choice among many age groups. Hyaluronic acid fillers are among the most popular, lasting between 6 and 18 months.
What’s Right for You?
Ultimately, there’s no right or wrong age to start getting BOTOX or fillers. The best age for you to start cosmetic treatments will depend on your goals and how pronounced wrinkles and other signs of aging are at a given age. Genetics and lifestyle habits also factor into how quickly or slowly someone might age.
