Your facial goals can change at different stages in your life. In your 20s, you may want a subtle pout to enhance your lips, and in your 40s, you may want to fill in nasolabial folds and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are the perfect injectable treatment because they are easily customizable at every age.
So, before you and your provider choose your dermal filler, consider what you want to achieve at your stage in life. Here are some things to consider when selecting your dermal filler.
Best Dermal Fillers for Your 20s
Volume loss in your chin, cheeks, and lips can start in your 20s, depending on your skin health and genetics. After age 20, collagen production starts decreasing, and your face may not look as plump and youthful as it used to. Or maybe you want to subtly reshape your facial features, giving your lips a little pout or creating the appearance of a straighter nose. Dermal fillers can help with all of those issues.
The JUVÉDERM® family of fillers is a great option for someone in their 20s, as it contains hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid fillers give you soft, natural-looking results for your face and lips. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, for example, restores volume and structure to thinning lips to create a radiant smile.
Best Dermal Fillers for Your 30 and 40s
As you enter your 30s and 40s, you will notice more pronounced volume loss in your mid to lower face. But a skilled injector adds natural-looking volume to these areas with fillers such as JUVEDERM® VOLUMA® XC. If you’re looking to smooth out fine lines around your lips and add plumpness, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a terrific option.
Remember, you can continue using the dermal fillers you used in your 20s to achieve volume in your face and lips. Dermal fillers are also great for filling in age-related wrinkles such as crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or under-eye bags.
Best Dermal Fillers for Over 50
As you enjoy this more experienced stage of your life, you will notice your facial lines starting to deepen. Your dermal filler treatments should focus on softening nasolabial folds, laugh lines, marionette lines, and volume loss in the cheeks and chin. RADIESSE® is a good option to fill in your moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, and BELOTERO BALANCE® works well where the skin is more delicate, such as around the eyes.
However, if you are looking for more dramatic results but are not ready for a surgical procedure such as a facelift, try a liquid facelift that combines dermal fillers and BOTOX® to rejuvenate your face. Read more about this procedure in our related blog post.
Whichever stage you are in, dermal fillers help you shape and contour your face, so you love your look at any age. Just make sure to choose a skilled injector who can give you your desired results.
