Prejuvenation is a new term used to describe the steps younger people are taking to help lessen visible signs of aging on the skin before they have a chance to start. This blog offers an idea of the prejuvenation options offered at Careaga Plastic Surgery.

Most everyone knows what rejuvenation is—freshening up your skin by reducing or eliminating signs of aging on your face and neck. However, the newest term to trend for self-care enthusiasts is “prejuvenation,” which is taking steps to lessen the effects of aging on the skin before they even start. In this blog, we discuss the non-surgical options offered at Careaga Plastic Surgery and Medspa that can help you keep your skin looking glowy and ageless for as long as possible.

Keeping Forehead Lines at Bay

One of the first signs of aging many people notice is forehead lines. The stress and pressures of modern life on young professionals cause many to lose sleep and develop worry lines early on. From surprise to irritation to skepticism, certain expressions tend to show themselves in the horizontal lines on your forehead and the vertical lines (or “elevens”) between your eyebrows. Unlike some wrinkles, forehead and brow wrinkling aren’t things you can necessarily prevent with skin care.

Forehead lines are known as dynamic wrinkles, which means they’re the result of millions of repetitive muscle contractions. Years of facial expressions eventually begin to permanently etch themselves into your skin, but aside from stopping any sign of emotion, how can you prevent these wrinkles from happening?

Prejuvenation stars BOTOX® Cosmetic and DYSPORT® are designed to temporarily immobilize the muscles in your forehead and brows to prevent dynamic wrinkles from making themselves at home on your face. Not only will they smooth your skin for up to six months after treatment, but with consistent use, they can actually train your muscles to contract less and relax more.

Retaining Youthful Contours in Your Face

As we see on social media every day, celebrities and influencers of every age are showcasing their use of injectable fillers. From Katy Perry using fillers to address the loss of volume under her eyes to Kylie Jenner beginning lip filler injections in her late teens, many people love what a bit of volume can do to contour and improve their faces. 

Fillers are a great way to tweak areas of your face that make you feel self-conscious, or that may be an early victim of signs of aging. They do an excellent job of restoring and renewing the subtle facial curves that balance one’s face for a youthful, energetic glow. Lips naturally thin with age, so keeping them plumped up and pouty can stave off the appearance of aging. Facial volume decreases with age, and wrinkles increase, so prejuvenation treatments with JUVÉDERM®, RESTYLANE®, and SCULPTRA® Aesthetic can keep your facial contours looking rounded and youthful. An additional benefit to these fillers is that they stimulate your body’s production of collagen, which helps keep your skin healthy and supported from the inside out.

Keeping Your Skin Fresh and Glowing

Skin can be tricky to deal with at any age, so in order to keep it looking gorgeous for as long as possible, it’s essential to take advantage of quality skin care. Whether you have oily, dry, or acne-prone skin, there are a variety of ways to keep your skin from showing its age too soon. With the right combination of treatments, you can even get your skin looking better than it ever has.

You’ve probably heard of a “vampire facial” or “PRP microneedling,” but do you know exactly what those terms mean? They both refer to a skin treatment known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a method that uses the growth factors found in your blood to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in your body, tightening your skin and boosting cell turnover to erase signs of aging and refresh your complexion. 

The treatment involves separating the platelets and plasma in your blood from the other cells and then introducing that platelet-rich plasma back into your skin via microneedling or injection. Collagen and elastin naturally decrease production over time, so using PRP as a prejuvenation treatment helps encourage the continued production of new collagen and elastin, keeping your skin youthful longer.

If PRP isn’t your thing, consider the wide range of prejuvenation options found at the Medspa at Careaga Plastic Surgery. With treatments designed for any skin concern, you can explore facials, chemical peels, LED light therapy, and so much more to ensure that your skin stays smooth and glowing indefinitely.
