What is the right age for injectable dermal fillers? Centreville, VA dermatologists clarify

Wouldn’t the world be a boring place if we all developed, grew, and aged exactly the same way? Fortunately, each person is a unique individual.

The point at which your skin shows signs of aging is a one of a kind combination of:

  • Genetic factors
  • Environmental influences
  • Lifestyle
  • Nutrition
  • Health
  • Stress

That makes it impossible for an ethical dermatologist to cite a specific age when injectable dermal fillers are appropriate. We urge women and men in the Centreville, VA area to consider these points.

The purpose of fillers

Products such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, and Belotero are called fillers because they do just that – add volume to fill depressions and wrinkles. These popular hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers work in two ways. First, they add immediate volume. Second, HA binds with water for additional plumping. Sculptra’s poly-L-lactic acid compound is a collagen stimulator. It gradually restores the structure and natural volume of skin.

Prevent vs. repair

There is increasing evidence that wrinkles can be postponed indefinitely with early use of injectables. You might think of it in terms of your favorite jeans. If you hang them up, right out of dryer, they stay flat. If you let them lay in a heap, you’ll have to press them, and some of the wrinkles will be permanently set. Your complexion is kind of like that. Application of fillers at the earliest sign of wrinkles requires less product and provides the internal structure skin needs to stay smooth. It avoids the need to play catch up later.

There is no right (or wrong) adult age to want to look as young as you feel. For more information on injectable dermal fillers in Centerville, VA call (866) 808-3140. One of the dermatologists at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia will be happy to explain cosmetic treatment options.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
