I’m 26 and have very good skin, looking at my parents, who are 50 without a line on their face, i can see that i will age well. However i am interested in a cheek filler just to lift my cheeks a bit. Am i too young?
Age per se is not a barrier to having cheek filler. It would really depend on what your cheeks looked like. If aesthetically, they would benefit from some enhancement, then there is a case to have treatment. There would be a preventative element to having treatment earlier, as this would help to lift the cheeks and fight gravity, as well as stimulate new collagen production through the actual injection of the filler.
