When is it Too Early to Get Dermal Fillers?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Dermal fillers are an excellent solution for premature signs of aging like wrinkles. However, people who undergo treatment too young may experience long-term problems like stretched-out skin. VIP Plastic Surgery may recommend facelift surgery to correct these effects and restore a youthful appearance.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi has helped countless men and women achieve their desired looks through cutting-edge facelift procedures. Call now to arrange a consultation and discuss your options in Las Vegas, NV — patients are not disappointed with their results.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that uses hyaluronic acid or other man-made materials to smooth away wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars and depressions, and even enhance facial features such as lips. The results can be very effective and make people feel more confident in their skin. Plus, fillers tend to last for months, depending on the type used and the area of application.

When is it too early to get dermal fillers?

Because dermal fillers are so convenient, they are often requested by people who are too young and don’t necessarily need them. While the results are temporary, getting dermal fillers early in life can cause some long-term problems. The skin around the injected area may become stretched out as a result of repeated treatments over time. Asymmetry may also occur.

For this reason, VIP Plastic Surgery does not recommend dermal fillers for people under the age of 30. This helps to ensure that results remain natural. Of course, age is not the only factor that should be considered before treatment. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is always recommended before moving forward with any cosmetic procedure. They can assess your skin and provide personalized advice about fillers.

How does a facelift correct stretched-out skin?

Facelift surgery is a great option for people who had dermal fillers too early in life and are now unhappy with their appearance. During this procedure in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Khorsandi places small incisions around the hairline and near the ear. The skin is then lifted and repositioned while excess tissue is trimmed away. This addresses the issue of sagging skin and other premature signs of aging.

Depending on your surgical plan, Dr. Khorsandi may also remove small fat deposits to make your features appear more toned. Our staff is proud to use state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to produce the best outcomes possible.

Do results from facelift surgery appear natural?

However, when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Khorsandi, facelift surgery is a safe and effective treatment that can restore a naturally youthful appearance. Your features should seem rejuvenated and more vibrant, with no signs that a procedure was ever performed.
