Anti-wrinkle injections are very popular in Australia – not only women but also men turn to injections to regain their youthful appearance. But some people are injecting drugs when they are too young, according to Dr. Phoebe Jones, who treated up to 3,000 patients a year.

About 100,000 people intend to undergo cosmetic procedures to look their best for their party season

About tip for aesthetic treatment, Dr. Phoebe Jones revealed that 27 is the beginning age but many people are conducting the procedure in the early 20s. “Some are too flippant and don’t think things or do their research before getting it done. A lot of generation-Y patients don’t always have the money for it and often chase deals that result in unsafe and bad procedures,” she said.


It is unnecessary and wasted money because the volume and thickness of the skin at that age are very good.

“The dermis (thick layer of skin where collegian sits) for Caucasian women doesn’t start loosening usually between the ages of 27 and 30. That’s when they should start if they really want to get in early to prevent lines at rest from setting in and becoming permanent. For Asian women, it is a bit later because compared to Caucasian women their dermis is much thicker,” Dr. Jones revealed.


She said that age range is similar for men, but the men she treats are usually between the ages of 35 and 65.

Before receiving any cosmetic injections, you must consult your doctor for medical care so they can review your medical history.

“The public needs protection from untrained, inexperienced, ‘occasional’ practitioners offering cosmetic procedures who do not understand the high-risk areas of the face. Many practitioners undergo a one or two-day training course only for cosmetic injectables — this is simply not adequate,” Dr. Kushelew said.


Dr. Jones said that where botox works most effectively is on the upper surface including frown lines, crows feet and bunny lines around the nose.

After one treatment, it will be like you have never done it. But for longer periods of time such as over 10 years, you will begin to move completely gradually and will eventually look like you have no Botox. In general, it lasts three months.

“Females need lees units than males — and it also depends on the number of areas you want treated. Just for frown lines it can be between $200 and $300 for a woman for the first time (for 20 to 25 units).”

Be cautious and wise when choosing your beauty and aesthetic treatments.
