What Is The Best Age For Botox, Fillers, Or Cosmetic Surgery?

In this post, we’ll be explaining three common anti-ageing options for the face: Botox, fillers, and cosmetic surgery, as well as at what age individuals commonly seek these procedures. We'll also explain why patients should examine their own cosmetic needs rather than choosing the most popular one for their age group.

Common Question: When Choosing Between Botox, Fillers, Or Facelifts Should I Choose The Most Popular One For My Age Group?

It is important to remember that signs of ageing are more than just a number. Lifestyle factors, such as sun exposure, diet, genetics, and habits such as smoking can all impact an individual’s appearance.

Additionally, the patient’s preference for a surgical or nonsurgical procedure, the required downtime, and the duration of results all impact which procedure would be best.


Botox, Facelifts, And Fillers: The Overview


In cosmetic treatments, Botox is usually used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is especially useful in the upper area of the face, such as the forehead. It works by relaxing the muscles under the wrinkles, which results in a smoothed-out appearance

What Age Groups Seek This Cosmetic Treatment?

For ageing caused by stress, sun damage, or alcohol intake, patients may begin to seek Botox treatment at our Kelowna clinic once they are over the age of 35. However, women in their mid-20s may begin to seek treatment earlier if they have a heavy smoking habit, or if they are interested in the “preventive” aspects of Botox.



At our clinic in Kelowna, patients may opt for fillers rather than Botox if they are noticing signs of lost volume rather than wrinkles.

There are numerous different fillers on the market, which include different concentrations of various active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. In general, however, fillers work by plumping up the skin. This results in a more rounded, healthy-looking facial contour.

What Age Groups Seek This Cosmetic Treatment?

Adult patients of all ages use fillers for cosmetic enhancements for the lips. However, when it comes to using fillers to address lines, and wrinkles, the use of fillers often starts in their early 30s and 40s.



A facelift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts and redrapes the skin of the face.

What Age Do Patients Usually Get These Procedures?

While there is no “optimal age” for a facelift, the American Society for Aesthetic and Plastic surgery states that patients who get a facelift in their late 40s or 50s obtain better results due to the fact that their skin has more elasticity. However, older patients can often achieve more dramatic results.

At the same time, patients may delay getting a facelift because Botox and fillers adequately address their cosmetic concerns.


Questions To Ask When Choosing A Cosmetic Procedure

When helping you choose the right procedure for your needs, your cosmetic surgeon will go over:

  • what sort of results you aim to achieve
  • how much recovery time you will need
  • whether you have any ongoing health issues that could impact your results
  • how long your results will last

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
