While treatments to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to correct the signs of ageing are ever popular, there is a new emerging trend to look out for. This is known as pre-juvenation. But what does pre-juvenation involve? And what are the benefits?
What is pre-juvenation?
Pre-juvenation is the term used to combine both prevention and rejuvenation, to describe a newer method for tackling the signs of ageing. As we all know, prevention is much better than cure, and this is what pre-juvenation is all about. This is focused on taking preventative measures in your 20s and 30s to protect the skin, with the aim of minimizing the appearance of ageing, instead of waiting to correct and repair the damage later in life. These treatments are becoming increasingly popular, but what are the pre-juvenation treatment options?
What are the most effective pre-juvenation treatment options?
For effective pre-juvenation there are a number of effective treatment options you can consider. These can include:
- Chemical Peels
- Dermal fillers
Microneedling as a pre-juvenation treatment
Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment option that involves pricking the surface of the skin with tiny needles to trigger cell rejuvenation. The DermaFix pen is another alternative that has the same aim but may be more effective. Whether you opt for standard microneedling, or choose the DermaFix pen, you can be sure that the treatment will stimulate collagen and initiate skin growth. This can help keep your skin healthy, and youthful, as collagen is responsible for maintaining skin volume. In addition, microneedling also promotes cell turnover, keeping your skin rejuvenated and leaving you glowing.
Chemical peels as a pre-juvenation treatment
Chemical peels can be very useful for pre-juvenation. These involve applying a slightly acidic substance to the face, to remove the very outer layer of skin and permeate the deeper layers with nourishment and hydration. For skin texture issues, including the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles, this can be a very effective way to minimize their appearance and maintain younger looking skin for longer. This process encourages cell rejuvenation, so that older dead skin cells are replaced with fresh healthy ones. This removes any cells with texture issues, and leaves your skin smooth and healthy.
Dermal fillers as a pre-juvenation treatment
Finally, dermal fillers can also be a very effective pre-juvenation treatment option. These are injections of hyaluronic acid directly into the skin tissue. This can plump up the volume of the skin while also adding hydration and nutrition. Hyaluronic acid is found throughout the human body, particularly in the skin, where it supports both collagen and elastin proteins to work effectively and efficiently. As we age, the hyaluronic acid, as well as the collagen and elastin production, reduces. This leaves skin thinner and promotes the development of wrinkles and expression lines. As a result, preventative dermal filler treatments can help to keep the skin healthy.
Pre-juvenation practices for your skin care routine
As well as aesthetic treatments for pre-juvenation you can also make some simple changes to your skin care routine. These include:
- Using suncream- it is much easier to prevent sun damage than it is to repair. So for your sins long term heath, make sure you are using sunscreen regularly.
- Gentle exfoliation- applying a small amount of exfoliating creams can help to regulate cell turnover and keep your cells healthy and fresh. However, it is important not to use too much of this.
