Prejuvenation is an individualized treatment protocol comprised of non-invasive or minimally-invasive treatments that help prevent the normal signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles or sun damage. As skilled board-certified dermatologists, our physicians individualize each patient’s treatment to include a regimen of advanced techniques to keep our patients’ skin in top condition through every season of life.

In the battle against the signs of aging, our physicians believe the earlier that both men and women take care of their skin, the better. The goal is to change the trajectory of aging to ensure patients look youthful and natural as they mature.

How does Prejuvenation Work?

Prejuvenation may be the latest buzz-word in anti-aging, but its concept is based on proven methods for preventing the early signs of aging. This approach refers to a cosmetic regimen that combines prevention and rejuvenation, using a combination of aesthetic procedures like Botox, lasers, and fillers. In addition, patients receive a personalized program of medical-grade skincare products they can use daily at home to maintain the youth and beauty of the skin. A customized combination works to improve and, in some cases, prevent visible signs of aging.

Do Prejuvenation Treatments Hurt?

Most treatments included in a prejuvenation regimen are either noninvasive or minimally invasive. These procedures typically involve little if any discomfort. Some patients receive a topical numbing cream before their procedure to ensure their comfort level throughout their appointment. Our doctors will advise you on what to expect with your procedure, both during and afterward. 

When Will I See Results?

The onset of results varies from treatment to treatment. Filler results are usually apparent immediately following treatment, while neuromodulators like Botox take about one week before you see the full improvement. Laser treatments may show final results within a week to a month, depending on the specific treatment performed. 

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

Most prejuvenation treatments involve little to no downtime. In many cases, you will be resuming your regular activities as soon as you walk out of our office. Our doctors will advise you about what to expect from your recovery and steps to take after your procedure based on the specific treatment you have.

Are Men Interested in Prejuvenation?

Yes. Women are not the only ones seeking injectable and laser treatment today. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 1 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in the United States in 2018. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 72% from 2000 to 2018.

There are different approaches, however, when treating men versus women, and our dedicated dermatologists take these real differences into account during every treatment. Our goal is to ensure you look natural – like you, only younger and more refreshed.


Questions and Answers

Q: What Treatments Might Be Included In My Prejuvenation Plan?

A: Prejuvenation plans are carefully tailored to the precise needs and goals of each of our patients. Treatments that are frequently included in these programs are injectable dermal fillers, neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, and laser rejuvenation like Fraxel and HALO. We will also advise you about the best medical-grade skin care products based on your skin type, tone, and concerns.

Q: How Long Do Results Last?

A: Your results will vary based on the specific treatments you have. Neuromodulators typically offer improvement that lasts 3-6 months. Most dermal fillers and laser treatments last 6-12 months. Deeper laser treatments can extend for one year or longer, depending on the device used and the depth of the treatment. Our doctors will advise you on what to expect from your treatment and how to schedule treatment sessions to maintain your results.

Q: Are There Any Side Effects from the Prejuvenation Treatments?

A: Side effects from prejuvenation treatments vary, but most are both mild and temporary. Common side effects from both injectable and laser treatments include skin redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. In most cases, side effects will not persist beyond a day or two.
