Have you heard about “prejuvenation?” It’s a new word invented to describe the phenomenon of younger people seeking anti-aging treatments like Botox® before they even have wrinkles!
Here at Skin Care Institute, we are by no means condoning the use of injectables among teenagers! However, we do love the concept of prejuvenation because we think it can be applied to every age group for a variety of treatments! Here’s our take on “prejuvenation,” and what it means for you:
• Prevention is key
The reasoning behind prejuvenation is simple: preventing wrinkles is much easier than reversing them, and there is science to back this claim up. Botox works to relax the muscles underlying wrinkles, so if you relax those muscles, you are slowing the wrinkle-formation process, effectively keeping wrinkles at bay.
• More than Botox
Aging is about so much more than just wrinkles and lines. That’s why we think skin rejuvenation treatments should be included in the “prejuvenation” category. For example, fractional laser skin resurfacing helps to create “controlled damage,” thereby stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin, which strengthens skin and staves off several signs of aging and sun damage. For another example, Ultherapy®, a non-invasive skin tightening technology, helps to pause your skin’s aging process, so to speak, by stimulating renewal deep within your skin at a foundational level. These treatments aren’t dramatic like a facelift, but they can be considered prejuvenation because they help your skin look better for longer. And with repeated use, the benefits keep building.
Here at Skin Care Institute, we are passionate about bringing out your best at every stage of life, which is why we are continually seeking to expand our menu with state-of-the-art solutions for rejuvenating and reinvigorating your appearance.
