The Best Age For Anti Wrinkle Injections

With more money being spent on cosmetic procedures per person each year than in the U.S.A, anti-wrinkle injections in Australia are widely popular among both men and women. With people as young as 18 years old paying for anti-wrinkle injections, it begs the question, “what is the best age to have anti-wrinkle injections?”.    As a team of medical cosmetic professionals who have been performing anti-wrinkle injection treatments across our clinics in Sydney, we have performed this treatment for a wide range of clients. Based on our professional experience and the observed results, the effectiveness of anti-wrinkle injections does differ according to the age of the client. This blog aims to provide insight into the best age to have anti-wrinkle treatment.  

What are anti-wrinkle injections and how do they work?

  Before we get into discussing the effectiveness and results of anti-wrinkle injections across various age groups, let’s start with the basics — what are they anyway?    Also known as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, anti-wrinkle injections treat wrinkles, facial lines, severe muscle spasms and sweating. By blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles, the toxin in the injections prevents the muscles from contracting — causing your face to relax and your wrinkles to soften. Most commonly used on frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet, anti-wrinkle injections are an effective preventative and corrective treatment for facial lines. 

The effectiveness of anti-wrinkle injections on those between 18 and 28

  While many men and women younger than 28 years old have anti-wrinkle injections, the majority of these clients do not yet have any lines or wrinkles. Causing the muscles to relax and the skin to remain flat, anti-wrinkle injections on those younger than 28 are more of a preventative wrinkle treatment than a corrective one.    In some cases in this age group, there is little difference between the before and after anti-wrinkle injection photos. However, everybody is different and genetics play a big part in the elasticity and receptiveness of your skin to wrinkles. If you are seeing the formation of wrinkles in your 20s, you are not alone — and anti-wrinkle injections can help soften and prevent deep wrinkles in your younger years.   

Anti-wrinkle injections on clients between 29 and 40

  The average Caucasian woman’s skin starts loosening and wrinkling at about 30 years old (and this occurs even later for Black and Asian women). Around this age, our collagen, the protein responsible for keeping our skin tight and plump, begins to break down and the body’s natural production of collagen decreases.   For this reason, anti-wrinkle injections in smaller doses for preventative treatment is popular within this age group. By softening and preventing any existing lines from becoming deep-set, anti-wrinkle injections prolong the youthful appearance of the skin.  

The results of anti-wrinkle injections on clients between 41 and 50

  While everybody is unique, most women and men in their 40s have formed what is known as static lines — wrinkles that are present even when you’re not smiling or frowning. Unlike in your 20s and 30s, anti-wrinkle treatments in your 40s are about smoothing out existing lines and relaxing your facial muscles to prevent further deepening of wrinkles.    Anti-wrinkle injections on their own will soften these lines and, after a few treatments, can actually remove some of them but are even more effective when combined with dermal filler injections to fill out the deeper grooves.   

Cosmetic injectables and anti-wrinkle treatments for those over 50

  The effects of the breakdown of collagen stores in our skin tend to become quite noticeable in our 50s. Many clients at this age point out that their faces are becoming angry or sad-looking as the skin around the sides of the mouth and below the eyebrows begin to turn downward.    By treating the areas mentioned as well as any other problem areas with anti-wrinkle injections, wrinkles can be softened and the skin around the eyes can be lifted — creating a more youthful, tight and bright appearance.
