Your Guide To Injectable Treatments In Your 20s
By the time we hit our 20’s, most of us agree we have a fairly good understanding of what works for our skin. We’ve found our trusted skin care products, which we couldn't be without and most of us have tried out the odd facial treatment that makes our skin look and feel amazing. But, when does the time come to start thinking about the future? We may have heard the term ‘preventative botox’ coined, but what does that actually mean? There can be a lot of misinformation out there so, to help you get to the facts, here’s our ultimate guide to injectable treatments in your 20s.
Botox in your 20s
Having Botox treatments in our 20s is very much a case by case scenario and can depend on many factors including health, lifestyle and genetics. You may find you have the early signs of fine lines appearing making you instantly consider Botox however any good aesthetic practitioner should first help you find the cause of the lines before recommending a treatment plan. In many instances changes in our skin care and therapist treatments such as skin peels can remediate these lines.
The cases which we most commonly see a need for Botox in our 20s are where the lines have the potential to become deep set, this is most commonly due to patterns of expressions or regular movements in our face. Botox relaxes and re-educates the muscle groups of the face and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles so regular Botox treatments can be used as a preventative measure to ensure these fine lines and wrinkles stay away. Using the latest techniques in Botox injections, we’re able to treat areas with natural results so you can still retain natural movements in the treated areas of the face.
Dermal Fillers in your 20's
In our teenage years, our features make significant changes and we will be able to look back at pictures and see the physical changes in our bone structure and facial form. Once we reach our 20s facial bone development settles, this is the stage in which we can decide if dermal fillers might be something we want to consider.
Our Doctor and Nurse injectors can choose from a wide selection of filler products from the Juvederm range. These are hyaluronic based, crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gels which produce reliable results while being gentle to your skin. For clients in their 20's the type of filler products we most commonly use are those designed to give shape and structure, these tend to have a slightly denser composition making them easy for our injectors to work with. The areas we most commonly see for clients in their 20's are enhancing volume in the lips, giving structure to the chin and jawline and occasionally reshaping the bridge of the nose.
Making your decision
When making a decision about any treatment, it’s always important to have a full consultation and consider your options carefully, be sure to shop around and do your research, look for qualified Doctor and Nurse injectors and ask to see proof of their qualification but be wary of establishments offering filler at a considerably lower price - if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
