‘Prejuvenation’ may not be a buzzword you are familiar with but you will have seen the effect of it on many young celebrities and influencers who have adopted the beauty trend.
The term relates to a ‘prevention is better than cure’ approach to keeping your skin looking youthful for longer.
What is prejuvenation?
‘Prejuvenation’ is a pre-planning approach to anti-aging that sees women (and men) in their twenties and thirties adopt cosmetic treatments to maintain their youthful appearance.
Instead of trying to deal with age-related changes to the skin’s appearances once they’ve started showing up, ‘prejuvenation’ is a preemptive, preventative approach to impeding those changes before they happen.
While it might seem like this is just a trend for celebrities and influencers who bank on maintaining a particular look, it really is an approach to skin health that anyone can buy into. Younger generations are seeking out cosmetic treatments and non-surgical procedures from much earlier ages to help slow down this ageing process and to preserve their looks for longer.
With more beauty resources, affordable yet effective skin care regimes and results-driven treatments than ever before, looking after your skin is more accessible to women (and men) of any age.
If you’re looking for preventative ways to sustain the health of your skin, stay younger-looking for longer or enhance your natural beauty, here are a few treatments to factor into your prejuvenation routine.

Prejuvenation in Perth: Cosmetic Injections and Dermal Fillers
Nowadays, many millennials are using dermal fillers to prevent lines instead of to fix them. Using these treatments in preventative ways can only help to maintain a youthful appearance and sculpt your face to fit a more traditional standard of beauty in a natural looking way.
When used in this combination, Cosmetic Injections and Dermal Fillers help younger women hit pause on the ageing clock, while also perfecting other areas of their face by adding plumper lips and contoured jawlines.
No matter how old you are, uneven skin tone can affect your self-esteem.
What’s more, sun damage, pigmentation and broken capillaries don’t discriminate when it comes to age and can pop up on even the most natural, youthful-looking skin.
There are a variety of skin resurfacing treatments such as laser, radio frequency skin resurfacing, plasma pen and thermal heat fractional. These, (depending on the level of resurfacing needed) carefully remove the skin’s outer layer while also triggering the production of collagen — which helps keep that youthful plumpness to your skin.
Prejuvenation: Collagen Stimulating Treatments
Collagen is a part of the connective tissue in the skin that helps in firmness, suppleness and constant renewal of skin cells. It is vital for skin elasticity, which is why, when collagen production starts to decline as you age, so too does the firmness of your skin.
While younger skin tends to be more naturally abundant in collagen, this can start to drop off from as early as your mid-twenties and can also be affected by factors like smoking and ultraviolet rays. For this reason, treatments that help stimulate collagen can be beneficial, regardless of age.
By helping to maintain and build collagen, consider stimulating treatments like micro skin needling, collagen induction therapy, beauty boosters and vibro microdermabrasion. Individually or in combination, these can help slow down the appearance of ageing while also giving your skin a tightening, bouncy and glowing boost.
Chemical and Facial Peels
Deep diving into the world of cult product recommendations and informative influencers online is one great way to get started on your journey to beautiful skin throughout your life. However, seeking out professionals and the treatments only they can offer is the best strategy to boost your beauty discoveries.
Chemical and Facial Peels – like a fruit acid peel, glycolic peel or lactic peel – not only give you a fresher, brighter and smoother appearance, they also help all those incredible products you’re purchasing work even harder. By introducing peels into your beauty regime, you can help your skin to stay fresh and refined.
With a focus on natural-looking results and maintain skin health for longer, ‘prejuvenation’ is one buzzword to get behind.
Prejuventation starts with you
One of the keys to beautiful skin for life is to start a good regime from a young age. Use a good Vitamin C serum (we recommend Aspect Dr Active Serum) and a Vitamin A serum like ZO Daily Power Defence or Growth Factor Serum regularly. These are essential to nourish your skin.
Prep your skin daily using a good cleanser and remember to cover up in the sun, even during winter.
