Pre-Juvenation Prevents Wrinkles

June 25, 2014

Ageing and looking older is a concept that makes a lot of people anxious. These are some of the driving factors that bring people into cosmetic surgery centres for things like Botox Injectable and dermal fillers to stop or fill wrinkles. While it’s common to see people in their 30s and up getting injections to rejuvenate their looks, there’s been a trend of people in their 20s (and sometimes younger) regularly doing non-surgical procedures to stay youthful looking. Cosmetic surgeons are calling this trend pre-juvenation—it’s the act of avoiding looking old before a person even gets old.

People usually try to fill and eliminate wrinkles and folds once they see them. The concept of pre-juvenation, however, is supposed to prevent these things from happening in the first place. Dr. Kenneth Arndt, who published an article in JAMA Dermatology, advocated that it’s never too early to start using Botox Injectable if that person wants to maintain a youthful appearance. Some people (surgeons included) don’t agree with pre-juvenation or think it’s unnecessary for young people to start using Botox Injectable before they even get wrinkles. Dr. Arndt says while he doesn’t advocate treating children or teenagers, he suggests at “whatever point people begin to notice and are bothered by some of these things like frown lines or forehead lines…It’s reasonable to consider starting treatment with Botox Injectable.”

Botox Injectable is one of the most common pre-juvenation procedures, but there are other procedures performed to maintain youthful looks such as: FotoFacials, Crystal Peels, and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra).

Maintaining a healthy diet, wearing sunscreen and having a good skincare regiment are other ways to maintain youthful, healthy skin. But for those who want to ensure wrinkles don’t appear at all, pre-juvenation does just that.
