Prejuvenation: What it means and when to start

How to ‘prejuvenate’ for Healthier, Younger Looking Skin

You have heard the word rejuvenation, but what about ‘prejuvenation,’ a term that means doing everything possible to prevent sagging skin, wrinkles and lines from forming in the first place.

“Prejuvenation is a proactive approach focusing on prevention rather than correction,” says NYC board-certified dermatologist Dr. Brian Hibler of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. “This means building a routine of topical skin care and non-invasive cosmetic treatments to help delay the signs of aging.” The benefit of prejuvenation means there is less to rejuvenate later down the road.

How to practice prejuvenation at home

  • An effective topical regimen should at minimum include a facial sunscreen and antioxidants in the morning and a topical retinoid and moisturizer in the evening
  • Antioxidants to look for include vitamin C, niacinamide, and vitamin E.

Prejuvenation with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures

  • The use of facial injectables has doubled in patients under the age of 30
  • Cosmetic treatments appropriate for the ‘prejuvenation’ population include neuromodulators, conservative dermal fillers, laser treatments, and tissue tightening devices (such as radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments).
  • The best time to consider a neuromodulator treatment is before you notice ‘static’ lines on the face at rest. Neuromodulator treatment can also help shape the brow and open the eyes.
  • Dermal fillers under the eyes can reduce shadowing and make you appear more rested and refreshed
  • Lasers can be used to remove early sun-damage and to provide a healthy glow and improve the texture/tone of the skin.
  • The goal is to delay or prevent fine lines, skin folds, tissue laxity, and significant sun-damaged appearance of the skin
  • Long-term safety of these treatments has been reported

These are just some of the many safe treatments with minimal downtime that enhance a youthful appearance:

  • Clear + Brilliant laser
  • Dermal fillers
  • Neuromodulators (Botox, Jeuveau, Dypsort, Xeomin)
  • Cosmeceutical skincare products
  • IPL
  • Sofwave
  • Picotoning

About Schweiger Dermatology Group

Schweiger Dermatology Group was founded to help make excellent dermatology care accessible throughout the Northeast. In 2010, Dr. Eric Schweiger started the practice with a single location in Midtown Manhattan. When he saw the need for high-quality dermatology care that did not require weeks or months of waiting to see a qualified provider, his vision of a multi-location practice was born.
