Although they are often associated with ageing, fine lines and wrinkles can appear naturally on faces of people in their early 20s, adding unwanted years to your complexion.

When is a suitable age to start anti-wrinkle injections?
This depends on the patient’s genetic circumstances and aesthetic goals. A reliable indication for when you may want to consider treatment is when lines and wrinkles remain even when the face is rested. If lines develop on the face during an expression of smiling or frowning for instance but disappear when the face is relaxed, you do not necessarily need to take action, unless for pre-emptive measures.
It is also important to maintain a skincare routine to ensure your skin receives essential nutrients needed to stay healthy and minimize exposure to the sun. For example, ingredients like retinol can improve texture and reduce signs of ageing, while products with antioxidants can prevent the breakdown of collagen and encourage skin health and restoration.
Before considering anti-wrinkle injections, ensure you are enriching the skin with hydrating and anti-aging properties. If your skincare routine is proving ineffective, or lines are beginning to linger when the face is relaxed, anti-wrinkle injections may be the next most suitable course of treatment.
Preventative anti-wrinkle injections
While in some cases the media have promoted that young patients should commence taking anti-wrinkle injections it is more suited to those who are more at risk of developing wrinkles due to genetic factors, or excessive squinting or frowning habits. For patients with these concerns, anti-wrinkle injections can not only relax the muscles to prevent lines but also provide invaluable peace of mind, allowing you to express normally without worry.
