09 Aug Am I too young for cosmetic injections?
A recent report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) found that women in their teens and twenties make up a third of people having anti-wrinkle injections every year, raising the question: how old should you be before you start using cosmetic injections?
The answer really comes down to need, not necessarily age. Cosmetic injections have a multitude of applications, ranging from medical use, such as treating excess sweating, migraines and cerebral palsy, through to aesthetic uses, such as preventing premature ageing.
From an aesthetic standpoint, cosmetic injections have proven highly effective in both treating and preventing the signs of ageing. While they won’t stop you from ageing, they can help soften new static lines and slow the development of deep wrinkles.
In terms of the treatment itself, the product used in cosmetic injections is a naturally occurring substance that has been safely used on millions of people of all ages all around the world for more than two decades. It has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective.
The bottom line is there is no right age for cosmetic injections – everyone is different. Some of us frown a lot or make repeated facial expressions that cause lines from our early adult lives, while others may not notice any lines until later in life.
When administered by an experienced clinician as part of a holistic treatment plan, alongside a great skincare regime that includes facial therapies such as pulsed light treatments, cosmetic injections can help ensure your skin is in optimal condition at every stage of your life.
