Prejuvenation: Buzzword or Beneficial?

Prejuvenation: a recently-coined term that is causing a stir in the beauty industry. Traditionally, these more in-depth skin treatments ‘turn back the clock’ on your skin. The idea of prejuvenation is to stop the clock on your skin altogether. Women are ready to dive into the world of skincare at younger ages with one major goal in mind: start skincare early and nip the appearance of aging in the bud.  

What is prejuvenation? 

Prejuvenation can be defined ‘as the act of initiating a series of thoughtfully planned steps that will prevent or impede the changes associated with the appearance of “aged” skin – lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and thin dry skin.’ This practice gained popularity at impressive speed among women in their 30s, and even some women in their 20s.  

Many medical spas have historically had a higher minimum preferred age on certain skin treatments. But due to demand and customer satisfaction with the results of prejuvenation, spas have embraced the new craze. We know being #selfieready is trending, and practices have responded with carefully curated treatments for the younger and developed the best possible treatments for younger complexions that slow down the aging process in the most natural way possible.  

Why try prejuvenation? 

There are more pros to trying prejuvenation than you would think. The idea of prejuvenation is more than just Botox and fillers: it’s about taking care of the skin you have and giving your body what it needs to keep your glow. 

It can help decrease the chances of skin cancer. 

Any professional will tell you the #1 recommendation for starting an early skincare routine is sun protection. The younger you start healthy sun habits, the better off your skin will be later down the road – 90 percent of skin aging signs are from sun exposure. This is true for both for looks and health. UV ray exposure causes about 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers.

So, through an early focus on prejuvenation, you could be avoiding some very serious skin issues later. 

It helps you focus on healthier fitness and diet habits. 

Who knew – the same habits that prevent premature aging in your skin are also connected to other health benefits?! (Hopefully everyone.) Diet and exercise are closely connected to overall skin health and longevity.  

Regular exercise does more than just give your skin a temporary sweaty glow – it can slow down and even reverse the effects of aging. One study shows that many individuals who exercise regularly have the skin makeup of the skin of a 20-30-year-old.  

Minimizing or cutting out sugar can have a softening and evening reaction in your skin – and it doesn’t take long to see results. It also means less acne (and fewer acne scars to be annoyed with later) and fewer skin irritations, which can also cause lasting damage.  

It is a sound investment in yourself. 

The name of the game here is maintenance. The earlier you start cosmetic treatments like Botox, the less likely the permanent lines and wrinkles are to get etched in your skin in the first place. The tell-tale signs of aging tend to not evolve at all if aesthetic treatments are started early enough. So skin rejuvenation won’t be necessary later on if skin prejuvenation is taken seriously.

How can I start a prejuvenation regimen? 

Sun protection 

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it a thousand times: 90 percent of aging signs in your skin comes from skin damage. Wear SPF over 30, rain or shine. Wear hats and cover up during bouts of long sun exposure, and shade is your friend.  

More water, less sugar 

We are all mermaids at heart. Hydration is key to keeping all your organs working at maximum productivity and is the lifeblood that keeps your skin dewy and glowing. And yes, sugar tastes great. But, it is also connected to acne, increased sun damage, and overall skin irritation. Doesn’t leave a great taste in your mouth now, does it? 

Laser skin brightening and collagen-producing treatments 

Laser skin treatments like PicoSure are great for erasing the look of sun damage and dark spots. Starting early gives you the added benefit of fewer treatments for great results – because minor ‘younger’ imperfections can be reversed faster than more severe spots. 

Neuromodulators (wrinkle smoothers) 

Treatments like Botox or Xeomin not only help treat current wrinkles but can prevent progression to deeper, permanent lines that are more difficult to treat. Early intervention with these issues can lead to less stress (and the tired looks that come with it) over time.  

Soft-tissue fillers 

Fillers are our solution to the volume-loss that accompanies aging. Volume and collagen loss can lead to sagging, wrinkles, and the overall ‘didn’t sleep at all last night’ looks. Adding in fillers early on can stimulate collagen production early on, so these aging effects will have a minimal impact on your face in your 40s and 50s.
