When to Consider Certain Facial Cosmetic Procedures

Cosmetic procedures, whether surgical or non-surgical, have come a long way since the first documented breast enhancement procedure was done in 1895. Currently, liposuction is the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery in America; Botox reigns in the non-surgical category. Whether you’re considering major surgery or a quick lunchtime procedure, timing is one of the important components in achieving your desired results.

Below is a rundown of the best time in your life to perform various facial rejuvenation procedures:

In your 30s

Around this age, early signs of lines and wrinkles are likely to have appeared such as crow’s feet (wrinkles in the outermost corners of your eyes) and the furrows between the brows. Botox results last from three to six months. Laser treatments and chemical peels that help lighten brown spots can complement the wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox.

In your 40s

Volume loss is one of the main components of visible facial aging. This is caused a substantial amount of fat loss and a decline in facial bone density supporting the skin and its surrounding structures. Facial fillers that contain naturally occurring substances such as hyaluronic acid and collagen are ideal cosmetic treatments for volume loss in your 40s.

In your 50s and beyond

Sagging skin is a common cosmetic issue from age 50 and beyond. Surgery is the best way to help address this problem. An endoscopic brow lift and eyelid surgery help improve skin laxity in the upper third of the face, while a facelift repositions the tissues and muscles in the upper cheek, chin, and neck areas.
