As the number of millennials seeking Botox® and dermal fillers continues to grow and grow, aesthetic providers everywhere have been inspired to label this behavior among the younger generation as a new aesthetic phenomenon, terming it “prejuvenation!” Prejuvenation refers to the pursuit of age-defying treatments before they are actually needed (before or “pre” wrinkles). It’s a proactive approach to aging that values prevention above all else.
The research is in, and it turns out that millennials are onto something! Botox not only reverses existing wrinkles, but it also helps to slow their development. Since many lines and wrinkles are the result of years of repeated muscle movements, it stands to reason that stopping certain muscle movement prevents wrinkles from starting in the first place.
Dermal fillers are also helpful as a preventive, though not in the same way as neurotoxins like Botox. Dermal fillers help to restore lost volume with a smooth gel packed with a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, smoothing away lines and plumping your pout until the gel is gradually absorbed into the body within a period of several months. But dermal fillers have also been shown to stimulate new collagen growth where they are injected, so patients may actually achieve a mild boost of natural rejuvenation with repeated treatments.
When it comes to all injectables, another big benefit worth mentioning is that the more regularly you receive them, the less product is needed to achieve the desired result.
What we like most about the concept of prejuvenation is that any age can benefit! Advanced aesthetic solutions like injectables and many other treatments we provide now make it possible to slow the aging process and look amazing at every stage of life. After all, a proactive approach to beauty and wellness is what we’re all about here at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics!
