What Is Prejuvenation, and Why Should I Do It?

When it comes to anti-aging skincare, it seems as though “rejuvenation” is the latest buzzword. After all, there are tons of creams, serums, and exfoliants out there designed to rejuvenate and renew your complexion. But what if you don’t want to wait to get a complexion that stands up to the march of time?

Taking care of your skin in your teens and twenties can lead to younger looking skin as you age.

Then you, my friend, need to learn about “prejuvenation”.

While rejuvenation focuses on recovery, prejuvenation focuses on delaying aging symptoms for as long as possible. Prejuvenation treatments are designed to increase collagen production, support elastin function, and preserve facial volume – all key signs of a younger complexion.

Prejuvenation should be a fundamental skincare mantra for any person in their twenties and early thirties. This age range is when collagen production starts slowing down, and those fine lines and wrinkles start creeping in. Additionally, sins of the youth – like smoking, staying up late, or not wearing sunscreen – can suddenly appear as brown spots and blemishes. Prejuvenation helps delay these effects by keeping the skin healthy, happy, and strong enough to face the onslaughts of daily life.

Preventative treatments can help people maintain young looking skin.

Here are a few examples of prejuvenation treatments that can help you enjoy your beautiful skin for longer:

  • Thermage: This skin-tightening treatment is also used to increase collagen levels, which makes up for your body’s declining production.
  • Microneedling: This non-invasive treatment helps increase cellular turnover, which helps fade the first signs of aging (fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and even acne scars).
  • Botox: Small injections of Botox can help delay the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes.

There are so many more prejuvenation treatments that can help you maintain the skin you already love. Want to see which prejuvenation treatment is right for you?
