Australians have an obsession for looking young and are always eyeing for ways to get wrinkle-free skin. One of the most effective treatments to look younger is through anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle treatments, especially when used on the forehead and eye areas can significantly eliminate crows’ feet and smoothen the forehead creating a younger-looking visage.
With the effectiveness of injection treatments to look younger, those treatments are becoming in demand among younger patients. This demand has therefore caused a debate on whether or not patients in their twenties should start using anti-wrinkle injections even if it is just for preventative measures. What is then the right time to start injecting anti-wrinkle treatments?
How Are Wrinkles Formed?
Wrinkles appear as creases, lines, and folds in a person’s skin. As a person ages, they’ll begin to notice more wrinkles appearing. Wrinkles appear in places where the skin naturally creases, such as the forehead, as around the eyes, near the mouth, on the neck, and on a person’s hands. Over time, skin loses its elasticity, causing wrinkles to form and become more noticeable and more permanent. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can damage skin and wrinkles may appear in areas that have had the most exposure.
The body’s ability to produce collagen as we get older diminishes. Collagen is responsible for making the skin and ligaments of the body elastic. With decreased collagen production, fine lines may appear.
Age When Wrinkles May Appear
Most people reach their peak growth periods during their adolescent stage and may stop growing by the time they reach their 20s. It is during this time that collagen production may diminish. Although people in their 20s still have enough collagen to prevent the occurrence of wrinkles, there are individual situations, such as stress, medical conditions, and sun exposure, that can cause younger individuals to develop wrinkles early in life.
Anti-Wrinkle Treatments for People in Their 20s
Experts agree that when people reach their 20s, their skin may start to show signs of aging. It is therefore recommended to start incorporating anti-wrinkle treatments in preventative dosages and follow a good skin regimen of moisturizing daily and wearing SPF50 sunscreen, especially when being exposed to the sun.
Anti-Wrinkle Treatments for People in Their 30s
Forehead lines, frown lines, and marionette lines will most likely appear on people in their 30s. However, if you have started following a good skin regimen during your 20s, the wrinkles will not be as visible as compared to others that did not take care of their skin during their youth. It is advisable for people in their 30s to consult with their dermatologists for anti-wrinkle injection dosages that will make their skins look refreshed and youthful.
Anti-Wrinkle Treatment for People in Their 40s
It is a given that most people in their 40s may have clear signs of aging already. It is only rarely that a person in their 40s will still have naturally clear, smooth, and wrinkle-free skin. At this age, anti-wrinkle injections are performed to soften and make the lines shallower.
There is no right age to start getting anti-wrinkle injections. People at a much later age may still get the benefits of smoother and younger-looking skin by getting more treatments to make deep wrinkle lines more relaxed.
