Am I Too Young for Dermal Fillers?

Explorers sought the legendary Fountain of Youth for centuries. While tales of a mythical spring that magically restores the youth of people who drink or bathe in its waters proved to be only a wishful fairytale, dermal fillers have proven to be the next best thing. When injected into strategic areas of concern, fillers can minimize wrinkles, add volume, and stimulate collagen production.   

While fine lines and thinning skin are inevitable, it can still be worrying when you glance in the mirror and realize look older than you feel. When premature aging begins revealing itself as early as your 20s or 30s, you may wonder how young is “too young” to seek cosmetic help. 

Luckily, there’s no such thing as an ideal age for dermal fillers. While women over 40 have primarily relied on this non-surgical solution, the word is out, and trends are changing. Today, younger people of both genders are increasingly opting for these injections to stem the tide of aging sooner. And with full, sensual lips and contoured cheekbones becoming more fashionable, the treatment has found even more popularity.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

As you get older, your skin will become thinner and less resilient. Wrinkles like nasolabial folds will etch themselves into your face, while facial fat pads will gradually shift downward, revealing hollows in areas such as your temples and tear troughs. 

Dr. Ali Sajjadian offers a wide range of soft tissue fillers to help Newport Beach patients look and feel young and confident. He offers Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Sculptra® as non-surgical procedures to refresh and rejuvenate your appearance. To minimize discomfort, he uses filler mixed with local anesthesia. Using different fillers and carefully targeted placement allows Dr. Sajjadian to create the most natural-looking results.

What Dermal Fillers Do

Dermal fillers contain naturally occurring substances to reduce facial lines and restore volume and facial fullness. They can:

  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Plump thin lips
  • Soften facial wrinkles and creases
  • Improve acne scarring
  • Reconstruct facial contours
  • Diminish or resolve lower eyelid shadows

Dermal fillers can benefit younger people struggling with early signs of aging or older patients seeking a non-surgical solution.

What Dermal Fillers Don’t Do

Surgeries like facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts may be the best approach for facial rejuvenation. As a minimally invasive treatment, dermal fillers cannot achieve the same dramatic results as surgical procedures, but may help you buy time by delaying surgery until you’re ready.

However, it’s wise to remember that dermal fillers are temporary solutions for facial aging, and that continued treatment is necessary for long-lasting results.

Are You Too Young for Dermal Fillers?

Times are changing. Today, many women in their 20s and 30s are choosing a proactive approach to combat aging. In general, you are a good candidate for dermal fillers if you are in good overall health and seeking a practical solution for your anti-aging needs. During your consultation, you can learn if dermal fillers are the best option to achieve your desired results. 

It might seem counterproductive to choose dermal fillers if you are only starting to see preliminary signs of aging. So why use them? Once you notice wrinkles forming, your natural collagen and hyaluronic acid production have already significantly decreased. Luckily, using hyaluronic-based dermal fillers in your 20s and 30s will proactively replenish your body’s collagen supply, allowing you to prevent deep lines for longer.

For safe and natural-looking results, you should only have fillers administered by a board-certified surgeon who understands facial anatomy and the science behind dermal fillers. Patients in their 20s require a far more conservative approach than those in their 40s or older.

Lip Enhancement

As one of the most desirable facial features, your lips can appear appealing when luscious and plump. In addition, full, smooth lips are a sign of youth, as lips tend to lose shape and volume with age, becoming thin, flat, and wrinkled. Fillers also volumize and contour for women born with naturally thin lips.

Dr. Sajjadian uses fillers to create naturally full and well-proportioned lips. In addition, he can make you look younger by restoring lip volume. 

Curious About Dermal Fillers?
