In the world of aesthetics, a new trend has turned into a lifestyle: prejuvenation. Younger patients are more interested in skincare and aesthetics than ever, suggesting that aesthetic enhancements shouldn’t be limited to corrective procedures.


What Is Prejuvenation?

Prejuvenation refers to seeking preventative aesthetic procedures that postpone visible signs of aging instead of correcting problems after they occur. It combines proper skin care practices at home and preventative cosmetic procedures from an aesthetician or plastic surgeon.

The goal of prejuvenation is for younger patients to take control of their skin, targeting concerns early on and preventing or postponing later issues that might involve invasive facial procedures.

With the increasing popularity of cosmetic and wellness bloggers on social media like TikTok and Instagram, more and more people are becoming educated and aware of the importance of skincare at an early age.

Not only does prejuvenation improve the look of skin today, but it also helps patients maintain the longevity of healthy, youthful skin.

When Should You Start?

There’s no time like the present, and when it comes to preventative skincare, the earlier you start, the better.

Many patients who want to achieve lasting, natural results start prejuvenation routines before seeing signs of visible aging, such as sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.

The procedures we will outline are effective as preventative measures and corrective, so if you’ve already seen signs of aging, that’s okay too. A healthy mindset and an awareness of the benefits of proper skin care are part of the prejuvenation process!

Prejuvenation Treatments at NOVA Plastic Surgery and Dermatology

MOXI® Laser Treatment

The MOXI® laser treatment is a gentle, non-invasive procedure that targets surface skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, and acne scars.

Safe for all skin types and tones, MOXI® increases collagen production, encouraging healing for prior skin issues and protecting it from future concerns.

BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL)

If you want to correct discoloration for a smooth, balanced appearance, BBL™ is an excellent option. Like MOXI®, BBL™ is a non-invasive laser treatment used to target minor skin concerns and irregularities.

BBL™ uses light to stimulate collagen production, reduce melanin, and minimize small blood vessels. Along with its use on the face, BBL™ can reduce skin concerns on the neck, chest, and hands, which are all common areas to show signs of aging.

Along with improving skin concerns like rosacea, BBL™ can help patients struggling with acne. For younger patients entering the world of prejuvenation, eliminating acne is a huge step to feeling great about their skin!

Microneedling and Lutronic Genius® RF Microneedling

Microneedling is a cost-effective and revolutionary treatment that tackles many skin concerns without using invasive technology to get lasting results.

With minimal pain and downtime, traditional microneedling is a fantastic option for those looking to rejuvenate their skin while improving overall collagen production and skin health.

If you are looking to treat and prevent:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven texture
  • Uneven skin tone

Microneedling is a great solution!

Lutronic Genius® RF Microneedling is a step up from traditional microneedling, so if you want to elevate your overall prejuvenation results, this might be the treatment for you. Lutronic Genius® RF microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) to stimulate collagen and elastin production for an even more dramatic and lasting look.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

We all know how popular BOTOX® Cosmetic is. But what some may not know is its preventative benefits for younger skin. While it is commonly associated with reducing the look of pronounced wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic is actually proven to prevent the appearance of wrinkles before they happen — making it a fantastic option for younger patients wanting to minimize the need for invasive procedures later in life.

The trick to effective, subtle BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is starting at the right time, using the right amount, and choosing the right dermatologist or plastic surgeon. If you start treatment for targeted areas (typically around the mouth, forehead, or eyes) at an earlier age, before set-in lines and wrinkles form, BOTOX® Cosmetic can prevent the creation of new wrinkles.
