Close Up of Caucasian Female Face With Thick Lips and White TeethOne of the most frequently asked questions Dr. Herbstman receives during a skin consultation is, “When should I start getting dermal fillers?” More and more younger women are coming in for fillers – and they don’t all want fuller lips like a Kardashian. Instead, many women in New Jersey are concerned about the overall health of their skin. So, to answer this frequently asked question – there is no “right time” to start having dermal fillers. Dr. Herbstman recommends his patients start visiting Contemporary Plastic Surgery as soon as they feel they’re ready for preventative maintenance, or when they’re ready to return to their younger self.

Dermal Fillers

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. And this method of anti-aging is becoming more and more popular across the country, with more than 1 million men and women receiving dermal fillers in order to restore their youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are also loved among men and women in New Jersey because they are much more inexpensive than plastic surgery options and involve no downtime.

At Contemporary Plastic Surgery, Dr. Herbstman uses dermal fillers for many different reasons, including:

  • To restore sunken cheeks
  • To erase creases near the chin and mouth
  • To erase fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and at the corners of the eyes 

“Warning Signs” Of Aging

For many, the thought of receiving dermal fillers in their 20s seems ridiculous, but in fact, this is the best time to do it. Prevention is key. Once you start to notice small signs of aging such as small, shallow wrinkles around your eyes, nose, or mouth, and minor loss of skin elasticity, you should visit with Dr. Herbstman to make a plan. By attacking wrinkles and lines at their first appearance – or before – prevents them from ever having a chance to form in the first place! How great is that?

Is There A Point Of No Return?

While taking preventative measures is ideal, the truth is that most New Jersey women who receive dermal fillers are between the ages of 40 and 55 – so don’t worry, you’re not too old to receive dermal fillers. Just like any other type of cosmetic treatment, dermal fillers only require you be in good general health in order to receive a treatment. What’s important, and the thing Dr. Herbstman stresses the most to his patients is that you consider your true aesthetic goals and whether or not dermal fillers are the best answer to your concerns. And any medical condition or procedure you’re considering, only a medical professional will be able to tell you what’s best for your specific trouble spots. That’s why an appointment with Dr. Herbstman should be on your To Do List.
