At what age can I start getting cosmetic facial enhancements?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
Patients often are seen in their early thirties for injectables, with more invasive cosmetic facial surgeries performed in the mid-fourties to early fifties. Fine wrinkles around the eyes referred to as crows feet, and animation lines of the forehead may be treated with Botox in the mid thirties. Injectables such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvaderm are useful for patients in the later thirties and early fourties. Facelifts and neck lifts are performed on patients in their later fourties and early fifties.
