Dermal fillers are an amazing tool to prevent and reverse the signs of aging – they can add volume to the cheeks, plump up thinning lips, smooth out wrinkles in the mid and lower face area, and more. But what is a good age to start the treatment?
By the Numbers
The age that most women get dermal fillers is between 40 and 54. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Annual Report, this age range received over a million soft tissue filler treatments in 2016, good for 17 percent of all procedures. This same set also went for a whopping 4 million Botox®-type injections that year.
The younger age brackets make up a much smaller portion of the population pursuing the use of dermal fillers. According to the report, 30- to 39-year-olds received 278,000 filler injections and 20- to 29-year-olds received 69,000 filler injections, which only account for 12 percent of all their minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
Prevention or Treatment
Receiving dermal fillers at a young age before you even see wrinkles, lines, folds, creases, sagging skin, and lost volume might seem unnecessary, but actually, this may be the very best time to start an anti-aging regimen with injectable soft tissue treatments. They can prevent those unwanted symptoms from appearing in the first place, and keep you looking youthful for as long as possible.
If you don’t want to start that early or your skin has already succumbed to the inevitable, dermal fillers are a perfect fit. This is the age when the body produces very little, if any, collagen and elastin, so soft tissue fillers are an effective replacement around this time. That’s why we see so many women and men in their 40s and 50s turning to fillers and turning back the clock on the aging process.

Everyone’s body matures at a different rate. Regardless of your age, if you think you’re ready to start a series of dermal filler injections, then the time is right. It’s all a matter of comfort.
