When is the Best Age to Start Getting Injectable Treatments?

Injectables are an effective way to turn back the clock and reverse the signs of aging. In fact, injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers have become some of the most sought-after facial rejuvenation solutions in recent years. One of the most common questions Dr. Fitzgerald receives from patients interested in these treatments involves the right time to start undergoing the procedure.

Should I Consider Injectables in my 30s?

Of course everyone ages differently, but once you are in your 30s, wrinkles, sun spots and slack skin may become more predominant. At this age, it's common for certain things to catch up to you: sunbathing, cigarettes, alcohol and poor diet – if any of these things were partaken of excessively in your younger years, they may show up as wrinkles, brown spots and sagging in your 30s.
