5 Reasons to Consider Cosmetic Procedures in Your 20s or 30s

Jan 27, 2020 | Tips on Cosmetic Treatments

People typically experience the first signs of ageing in their late 20s and early 30s. Depending on your genetic background, lifestyle, and how much sun exposure you’ve experienced, you may start to notice fine lines and sunspots. The skin will also become less firm because of the natural decrease in collagen production that we experience as we age.

Dr Julian De Silva has noticed that the average age for first-time cosmetic surgery is falling in his London practice on Harley Street. Here are 5 Reasons he believes you should consider cosmetic procedures in your 20s or 30s.

1. Beautification & Early Prevention

Most cosmetic procedures are performed on patients between the age of 35 and 60 as this is when the ageing process is most visible. More frequently, non-surgical treatments can be used to rebalance facial characteristics to enhance or beautify your face with the application of the golden ratio and enhancing natural facial characteristics. The best time to start treating wrinkles is when they first appear. Today, the average age for cosmetic treatment is dropping and luckily, there are some effective London treatments that can prevent wrinkles from forming so your skin stays looking youthful. Baby Botox or mini Botox are good examples. Other treatments with dermal fillers are also very suitable cosmetic procedures to undergo in your 20s or 30s.

2. Boost Your Confidence

There are a number of facial cosmetic procedures that people choose to undergo at an early age. Some of the most popular ones include:

  • Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)
  • Lip augmentation
  • Ear surgery (otoplasty)

Some teens also feel uncomfortable with their appearance from an early age and dream about making a little adjustment to their nose or ears to restore balance in their faces. When they come of age and their bodies are full-grown they may decide to undergo surgery.

3. Enhance Your Collagen Production

Collagen is a protein that is naturally present in your skin. It is one of the main building blocks of skin and tissue and can be described as the glue that holds the skin together. It is what gives our skin its youthful firmness. As we age, the production of collagen decreases. This process typically starts in a person’s 30s. There are various cosmetic procedures that can stimulate a person’s collagen production, most notably, laser resurfacing. In addition to activating collagen production, this procedure can even out discolouration caused by sunspots.

4. Desired Results With Less Invasive Treatments

By committing to cosmetic procedures at a younger age, patients can enjoy their desired results without having to go under the knife. A non-surgical facial beautification is especially suitable for patients who wish to beautify their face (use of the golden ratio) or with early signs of facial ageing who have a loss of facial volume but minimal skin laxity. This procedure is:

  • Less invasive than a surgical facelift
  • Gives fast and natural-looking results
  • Requires little to no downtime

5. Early Treatment Saves Time and Money

Patients who opt for a cosmetic procedure in their 20s or 30s can save a lot of time and money. During each initial consultation, Dr De Silva creates a comprehensive plan outlining which procedure is best based on each patient’s individual goals. All cosmetic treatments are planned ahead so the investment made is smaller and recovery time is shorter. The right treatments and surgeries at an early age may rule out the need for corrective, more complicated procedures later in life.
