How old should I be before I have Botox and fillers?

signs of ageingThe ageing process is an inevitable part of life and comes to us all. However, many of us want to stave off the signs of ageing for as long as we can, especially when it comes to our facial appearance. Dr Dan Dhunna, one of the UK’s leading authorities on cosmetic enhancements using injectable wrinkle-smoothing, such as Botox and dermal filler treatments is often asked when is the right time to start considering these procedures, and you’d be surprised at his answer.

All too commonly, people think that they only need to have injectable age-defying treatments when they are absolutely necessary and the skin has sagged, is deeply lined and wrinkled and they are looking tired, old and worn out.

The truth is that this could be shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted! Waiting until you are in your 60s could mean having more extensive, surgical intervention to deliver results that you could have attained way beforehand, in more preventative and preparative measures, with injectable cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers.

The signs of ageing

If you are in your mid to late 30s, you’ll probably be noticing signs of ageing that were nowhere to be seen in your 20s. Your skin may not be as ‘bouncy’ as it once was, you may find that you’re seeing lines and wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead and even around the mouth area. Your cheeks may not be as pert and you might be noticing that the shape of your face is not as full and heart-shaped as it once was.

This could be the perfect time to see Dr Dan Dhunna for some repair, restoration and revitalisation of your skin tissues, to create a supporting structure for your skin in the years to come. Botox may be a perfect solution to your expression lines that have developed over time and dermal fillers can rehydrate, plump and support the skin, from within. Having treatments such as these, earlier rather than later can help to safeguard and slow the ageing process down and stop extreme skin sagging.

It’s far easier to correct skin that is still responsive and has a fair amount of collagen and elastin than it is to repair older skin that has had no prior help from a Dr’s needle.

That being said, if you’re in your late 20s or early 30s, tiny doses of ‘Baby Botox’ and lighter textured, more fluid skin boosters and dermal fillers can offer subtle-yet-effective results for finer lines and wrinkles and the early stages of tissue degradation. So it’s worth considering, if you are looking in the mirror and seeing these signs, early on.

Put yourself in expert hands…

Dr Dan Dhunna offers superb advice to those considering cosmetic treatments for the first time in a no obligation consultation. He will always assess a patient’s face and expectations before administering any products in to the skin. A realistic and healthy outlook on cosmetic injectable treatments is as important as achieving the natural, subtle results that Dr Dan Dhunna offers in his many clinics throughout the UK; especially for patients who are slightly younger as looking ‘over-done’ is something Dr Dan Dhunna will always avoid at all costs. The best Botox doctor Harley Street has to offer could be on your doorstep.

Having treatment with Botox and dermal fillers sooner than you expect, could help to stave off the hands of time in years to come. Investing in the structure and foundation of your skin earlier can save the need for invasive surgery down the line.
