There is a wide array of non-surgical treatments when it comes to combatting the signs of aging! This includes the use of cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are used by many adult men and women who have experienced the development of fine lines and wrinkles and want to reverse time. However, many patients will ask us, “Am I too old for dermal fillers?” The answer is: no! People of different ages can benefit from dermal fillers to rejuvenate their appearance.
Understanding how dermal fillers work
Dermal fillers are often formulated with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a protein that attracts water, adding volume wherever it is injected. This means that when hyaluronic acid injectables are administered into fine lines and wrinkles of the face, it can immediately smooth them and allow patients to restore a more youthful look.
The right non-invasive treatment for you will depend on the exact issue you want to address, as well as its location on your face. For the deepest wrinkles and creases, fillers may or may not be the right choice. This is determined during a consultation and initial evaluation by Drs. Elizabeth Callahan and William Adams of SkinSmart Dermatology.
Am I too old for dermal fillers?
Most patients who benefit from fillers are people age 30+ who have mild to moderate formation of wrinkles and folds on the face. The creases may be located around your nose, your mouth, above your upper lip, or elsewhere on your face.
You are unlikely to be too old for dermal fillers. Non-invasive and low-risk, fillers can flatter the appearance of your face at almost any age in your adulthood. If you are in your 60s, 70s, or older, you may have deep creases and other signs of aging, such as sagging skin. Our experienced dermatology team will evaluate your face to determine if fillers or another treatment are the right match for the goals you want to achieve. Oftentimes, a combination of treatments achieves ideal results. No matter your age, our dermatology team will help you find a solution.
