With fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin being the main indicators of age, there’s no doubt that anti-aging treatments resonate with those looking to rejuvenate their appearance through cosmetic surgery. However, over the last year or so, more and more cosmetic patients have begun taking preventative measures to slow the aging process, several years before aging even starts to show.
If you are someone with an interest in the cosmetic world, you would have almost definitely come across the term ‘rejuvenation’ - a reactive practice that aims to restore a youthful appearance. But, what about ‘Prejuvenation’? What does this mean and why should you be interested?
Rejuvenation vs. Prejuvenation
Used in contrast to ‘rejuvenation’, ‘prejuvenation’ describes the relatively new and still very much developing trend that employs the use of minimally invasive treatments to minimize the signs of aging in younger patients.
Following an insurgence of intelligent face-morphing apps and Zoom Dysmorphia, many post-pandemic Millennials and Gen Z’s are finding themselves increasingly unhappy with their appearance. As a result, they have become proactive, seeking ways in which they can halt age-related concerns from occurring in the first place.
Luckily, there are many non-invasive treatments available to us - most of which can be used in both a preventative and regenerative capacity. Here’s a list of some of the most popular non-surgical treatments we offer at Bella Vou, and what they can do for you at both sides of the spectrum:
The building blocks of healthy skin are Collagen and Elastin, but as we age our bodies production of these proteins slows, skin loses its elasticity becoming loose or saggy and fine lines and wrinkles increase.
Boosting the production of Collagen and Elastin then, holds the key to restoring vibrancy and revitalising the skin. Incredibly, Sunekos have unlocked a way to dramatically increase the body’s own production of these proteins through their patented intelligent injectables thus dramatically slowing and even reversing the ageing process.
CO2RE is a revolutionary laser therapy that resurfaces and regenerates the skin for a smoother, fresher, and more radiant complexion. Bella Vou offers the CO2RE laser, which provides precise, adaptable skin resurfacing. The treatment uses targeted energy to remove part of the surface of the skin in a process known as Fractional Resurfacing.
Did you know that fillers are one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments? A hyaluronic acid gel is injected to restore volume, fill wrinkles, and lift and rejuvenate the appearance. Fillers provide instant rejuvenation with minimal downtime.
Bella Vou offers precise injection of high-quality hyaluronic acid. The expert practitioners have extensive knowledge of facial structure and anatomy to ensure the very best aesthetic results.
Morpheus 8 is a revolutionary new device that Stimulates the increase of Elastin and Collagen production while tightening connective fibres to lift, firm, smooth and contour the face and body. Morpheus 8 is a highly-adaptable fractional device. The aesthetic doctors at Bella Vou can programme the penetration depth and energy delivery to tailor the treatment for your needs. Morpheus 8 effectively treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, skin laxity, and improves your skin tone and texture.
Anti-wrinkle injections are non-surgical treatments that relax facial muscles and smooth lines and wrinkles to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance.
Anti-Wrinkle injections block the chemical mechanism between a muscle and nerve. When precisely injected by an expert practitioner, they are an effective, non-invasive way of reducing the signs of aging by relaxing facial expressions and smoothing wrinkles.
In order to get on board with the prejuvination trend safely, it’s important to consider not only what treatments you are interested in and why, but also when it’s the right time for you. Can you start too early? Absolutely. So it’s important that your interest is tempered by professional guidance. Most prejuvination procedures carry little risk, when accompanied by a comprehensive consultation to help properly determine the suitability of the patient.
Your journey starts with being well informed and there’s no better way than to have a private one-to-one consultation with a cosmetic plastic surgeon to understand what results you can expect.
