Ideal Dermal Filler Uses Based on Age Group, Part 2

dermal filler uses age group

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basic age ranges at which various individuals often choose to begin using dermal filler products. While every person is different and will have varying desires for their dermal fillers and other medical spa products, there are some common ranges at which we begin to notice products are used for given purposes based on age.

At the offices of Steven Jepson MD, we’re happy to discuss varying age-related desires and the anti-aging properties for any of our dermal fillers, including both Botox and a variety of Juvederm injections. In today’s part two, we’ll dig into some of the slightly older adult age ranges and the dermal fillers and uses we tend to see within these age ranges, plus the importance of consulting with a professional while making this decision.

In Your 40s

By age 40 or slightly above, many adults have begun to lose some of the collagen and fat that was present in their face for much of the rest of their life. Often in the nose area, for instance, there will be issues ranging from lines forming to a sunken, hollow appearance that might begin to show up.

For those in this situation, there are multiple Juvederm fillers that will provide fantastic results. There are several fillers that assist directly with facial fullness to assist those with sagging skin or fat deposits. Ask Dr. Jepson or another of our staff members about your options here if you’re in this position.

50s and Up

And as we get into our oldest age range, those 50 years or older, we reach the most common age group for the use of dermal fillers. By this age, particularly those above 60, the body has stopped producing much of its natural collagen and elastin, proteins that are vital for keeping the skin firm and tight.

For many in this position, now is the time to use dermal fillers to help reverse some of these natural impacts of aging. Smile lines, for instance, are a common issue for those at this age range, but the right dermal fillers will reverse these quickly and return your face to the smooth, youthful appearance it had previously.

Consult With Professionals

No matter which age range you’re in or which dermal filler you’re considering, it’s important to consult with a trained professional while you make this decision. Dr. Jepson and other members of our staff will provide detailed information on a given filler you’re considering, plus advise on whether it’s the ideal choice based on your age, lifestyle factors and desires.
