What’s the right age to start anti-aging treatments? Some people choose to start anti-aging treatments when they start to see lines and wrinkles in the mirror around the age of 40 or 50. Others don’t think much about it until their retirement years. But there is a growing segment of the population that believes anti-aging treatments should start as early as possible. They seem them less as a way to roll back the clock and more of a way of hitting pause, preventing the effects of aging from ever touching them at all. We’ve seen this growing trend happening in our anti-aging clinic in Baton Rouge, too, where younger and younger clients are coming in for cosmetic injectables and our other services.
Is There a Right Age for Anti-Aging Treatments?
In most cases, the right age to start an anti-aging treatment is up to the client themselves. If they see an issue in the mirror that’s affecting their self-esteem or feeling older than their years and are ready to do something about it, then that’s the right time to start treatment. However, with more invasive procedures, you may want to wait. Surgical procedures (not performed in our clinic) may need to be put off until a client’s body has finished developing; the bones in the face will continue to develop and change until you are nearly 20, for instance. If you are a woman, other invasive procedures might need to wait until you’ve finished having children or are done with breastfeeding.
For most of the procedures done in our Baton Rouge clinic, though, there is no right or wrong time to have them done. It’s up to the client with the help of our anti-aging team to develop a treatment plan that’s right for them, no matter how old or young.
Why Are Younger People Using Anti-Aging Treatments?
The average age of both men and women who are embracing the use of anti-aging treatments, particularly injectables, is getting lower and lower. Some people theorize that it’s because of the rise of social media and its prevalence in our everyday life. People want to look good in their social media posts when they share all the latest and greatest news in their life. Another facet of this is the rise of social media celebrities like Kylie Jenner. These stars speak openly about their use of cosmetic injectables, so it’s seen as acceptable wherein in previous generations it was more taboo and unmentioned. With a growing acceptance, more people are embracing it at a younger age at the first sign of their fading youth.
Some Anti-Aging Treatments You Can Try No Matter Your Age
The best part about our minimally and non-invasive anti-aging procedures is that you can start using them at a relatively young age. While our bioidentical hormone therapy might be something that waits until your later years, here are a few things you can do to hit pause on the aging clock now:
IV Nutrient Therapy
Getting the right nutrients into your body is vital to helping it stay young. Those who don’t get those nutrients will see the effects in the mirror as well as feel them in their joints and muscles. Our IV nutrient therapy contains magnesium, Vitamin C, calcium, and various Vitamin B’s. Many professional athletes use these injections to help them recover from strenuous competitions or training sessions at the gym.
From Botox to Juvederm and everything in between, cosmetic injectables are incredibly popular for a good reason. They provide great results, whether you want to smooth out lines on your forehead, fill in lines around your mouth, or plump up your lips. The effects of the injectables are semi-permanent, so you don’t have to worry about being stuck with something you did in your 20’s when you are now in your 50’s. It’s a great way to attain a beautiful, youthful look without undergoing the knife.
A Healthy Diet
Eating right is a great way to slow the effects of aging. A diet that’s rich in vitamins, minerals, Omega 3’s, and other vital nutrients will fuel your body and help prevent it from feeling and looking older than its time.
Plenty of Exercise
Exercise is one of the best things you can do to keep your body young. The more you move it, the better it works, and the better it’s going to work in the future, too. A good exercise routine can help prevent effects of aging such as sore joints, restricted range of motion, and will help keep your heart healthy, too. A good balance of cardio and strength exercises is best.
Get a Good Night’s Sleep
Sleep is important! While it’s easy to skip some rest when you are younger, you might regret that as you get older. Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep to allow your body to rest and recover from the stresses of the day. It’s good for your mental health, too.
