Maintaining a young and vibrant look is essential to feeling your best at any age. Fortunately, injectables and fillers are available to help you look just as youthful as you feel. And the good news is that there is never a bad time to start. So if you are curious about the best injectables at every decade, here is what you need to know:
Treatments Adjust With Age
The body goes through a variety of transitions in each decade. As a result, the type of injectable that worked for you in one decade may no longer feel relevant in the next.
In Your 20s
This is an age when volume and elasticity are still at their highest. However, many young women find themselves seeking to make adjustments to the lips to create better proportion and symmetry. Restylane® and Juvederm® are excellent options for a lip injection.
In Your 30s
It is during this decade that patients begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. To combat the crow’s feet and other signs of aging, Botox and Dysport rise to the top.
In Your 40s
At this point in life, many patients begin to experience a loss of volume in the face, most noticeably in the cheek area. The good news is that Restylane Lyft®, Juvederm®, Radiesse® and Sculptra® may be able to help.
In Your 50s
From this decade onward, there is a wide range of injectables that may be suitable for your needs. However, to help mitigate the effects of gravity on the jawline, Kybella® could be what you have been seeking.

Fillers and Injectable Options
Dermal fillers, also known as wrinkle fillers, are soft tissue fillers that have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). These products bring the skin to life, erasing wrinkles and other signs of aging – without the hassle and downtime of surgery.
As men and women strive to turn back the hand of time, facilities offering filler and injectable treatments are collectively growing. As you come to a decision on your choice of provider, consider Dr. Pollard’s cosmetic expertise in the following areas:
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections target the areas between your eyebrows, your forehead, and your eyes, relaxing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. If you have crow’s feet, lines around your mouth, or deep creases in your forehead, Dr. Pollard considers you a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. This treatment, which last an hour, requires no surgery – or downtime. Enjoy immediate results for up to six months.
Juvederm® is a specially formulated injectable filler that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally present in your body. With time, your skin loses its HA. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and allows it to retain a youthful volume. Dr. Pollard injects Juvederm® into the skin with a fine needle, targeting deep creases, wrinkles, and fine lines. The non-invasive treatment requires less than an hour of your time. After your session, you can immediately resume your work or recreational activities. Results can last up to a year.
Restylane® treats wrinkles and lines and is also used to enrich the volume of cheeks and lips, without surgery. Also containing hyaluronic acid, Dr. Pollard injects the affected area. As the skin becomes more hydrated, visual enhancements will appear right away and continue to improve in a matter of days. Your session will be complete within a few minutes, will not interrupt your daily activities, and you’ll be able to enjoy these benefits for up to six months.
Dr. Pollard recommends Perlane®, another product containing HA, for patients who desire fuller lips or cheeks, or a more youthful appearance. Comprised of larger particles, the gel substance is more effective on severe lines and deeper creases. The treatment is non-invasive, completed in less than an hour, and doesn’t interfere with your normal schedule. Results last up to six months.
Dysport® effectively relaxes line-forming muscles, reducing laugh and frown lines and wrinkles. This injection only takes a few minutes and does not interfere with your work or recreation time. Ultimate cases completely erase these creases in some patients. Enjoy immediate results and full enhancement within a week, and reap the benefits for up to six months.
Sculptra® targets your body’s natural ability to produce collagen, which is essential for healthy skin. With age, collagen levels decrease, and leaving us with wrinkles, lines, and skin folds. Dr. Pollard also recommends Sculptra® to increase cheek volume. Sessions don’t even require an hour of your time. This non-surgical treatment is quick, and you can immediately resume your daily duties as normal.
Radiesse® is another non-surgical solution to complement your body’s natural collagen in replenishing your skin’s health. This option treats severe wrinkles and deep creases. Almost magically, Radiesse® creates a supportive wall, accomplishing a two-fold result: 1) stimulating natural collagen production and 2) reducing severe lines and folds. Enjoy a short session and immediately return to your regular schedule without interruption. Radiesse® results in long-lasting enhancement, sometimes permanently.
