What Age Should I Start Getting Fillers?

You may be wondering when is the best time to dip your toes into the pool of injectable cosmetic treatments, and the answer may not be what you were expecting. If you are wondering if it is too early (or too late!) to try dermal fillers or other injections, you can stop wondering. There is almost never a bad time to start. You can begin to consider fillers as early as your twenties, and these treatments can be effective at any age.

Why Get Fillers?

Which type of filler you choose will depend on your treatment goals, and your goals are a good place to start. Depending on your age and your concerns, you may look for different results from your fillers.


Even before you see lines and wrinkles appear, fillers can be a good option to prevent their formation later down the line. Injectables such as Botox and Dysport work to relax the muscles that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles as we age. On the other hand, dermal fillers plump and smooth the skin, decreasing the likelihood of wrinkles forming.

Improving Shape

Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the shape of your face. If your bone structure is not quite giving you the look that you want, dermal fillers can subtly reshape areas of concern. For example, lip fillers can affect the shape and volume of the lips. Similarly, fillers in other facial areas such as the cheeks can add volume and create the effect of more defined or higher cheekbones.


The truth is that with age comes fine lines and wrinkles, lost volume, and sagging skin. After these issues appear, fillers can be used to effectively plump and smooth the skin. In addition to this immediate effect, the fillers stimulate the body to naturally produce collagen, which is a process that slows down as we age. This collagen production further promotes a more youthful appearance in the skin.

Different Types of Fillers for Different Goals


Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport are not true fillers. Instead, they are compounds that relax the muscles that contribute to lines and wrinkles. They can also be combined with fillers to create an even more significant result.

Filler Thickness

Finer-molecule fillers are more appropriate for younger patients or for anyone seeking subtle enhancement. More robust fillers are ideal once more significant volume loss occurs. We offer a range of different filler options. Each may be ideal for different patients and for different uses. Here are some of the options available:

  • Sculptra is ideal for deep collagen stimulation and volume loss and can be effective for several uses, including smoothing moderate to severe wrinkles, cheek augmentation, and the correction of age-related midface contouring.
  • Restylane Silk is excellent for lip augmentation and for the correction of smile lines.
  • Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are indicated for mid-to-deep injection, correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
  • Restylane Kysse is a good option for enhancing lip volume and reducing fine lines above the upper lip. It may also improve lip texture and color. Its XpresHAn Technology™ means a natural look and feel.
  • Restylane Contour shapes cheeks with natural-looking volume and facial movement. Using the same XpresHan Technology,™ it allows for natural movement and expressions.
  • Juvederm Voluma adds volume to the cheeks to lift the facial structure and correct age-related volume loss. It can also be used to sculpt the chin and jawline. Results from Juvederm Voluma can last up to two years.
