In the world of aesthetic dermatology, the vast majority of cosmetic issues or symptoms can be linked back to one thing, and one thing alone – aging! Sure, it might not be your biggest concern in your late teens, but you’d be surprised to know, that many of the skincare issues that affect you as early as your 20’s are a product of premature aging. And while you might still be young and feel young, your skin has lived 20+ hard years, constantly trying to rejuvenate itself over and over. And the aesthetics industry as a whole, is almost exclusively devoted to finding new and unique methods of fighting these types of issues. According to Dr. Eric Treiber, of Treiber Dermatology, considered to be the top dermatologist Rye has to offer, while there are definitely ways to fight aging once its began, the best thing any man or woman can do for themselves and their skin, is to start the process before aging even begins to truly affect you – this is often known as ‘prejuvenation’. To better help you understand what exactly prejuvenation is, and what the necessary steps to take are, Dr. Eric Treiber and his team at Treiber Dermatology offer us this thorough explanation on the subject.Prejuvenation
You may or may not have heard this term before, but either way, you can pretty much tell what it means just from the name – essentially rejuvenation is done after, while prejuvenation indicates that it is done beforehand. The act of initiating a series of thoroughly planned steps taken in order to prevent, as well as to slow doen the changes which occur as a result of normal aging. Many of these common signs of aging include wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations, thinning skin, facial volume loss, dry skin and more. As the top dermatologist Rye has in practice, Dr. Eric Treiberbelieves prejuvenation should be used to not only prevent the signs of aging, but to provide some level of enhancement in itself. When started early enough and taken seriously, with a proper routine, as early as childhood even – patients can drastically push back any of the effects of aging. Here are 3 steps that make up prejuvenation.Photoprotection or Sun Care
Probably the most vital aspect of prevention, photoprotection is the act of protecting yourself and your skin against the harmful affects of the sun and UV rays that emanate from the sun. The team at Treiber Dermatology recommends patients use regular sunscreen, of SPF 30 or higher – this helps to prevent issues like wrinkles, skin discolorations, brown spots, dry, aging skin and even skin cancer – a common concern for those with fare skin tones. Begin applying sunscreen in your childhood.Neuromodulator Treatment
Common neuromodulators like Botox are extremely common in the aesthetics world. While overuse isn’t recommended, patients in their early 20’s can use Botox or Dysport to slowly eliminate and prevent future wrinkles from developing on their foreheads or around the mouth area. These are key in prejuvenation as they temporarily stop facial muscles from causing future wrinkles.Exfoliation and Skin Resurfacing
Using laser skin resurfacing and procedures like microdermabrasion can help you to exfoliate properly, and remove the skin’s outer layers of dull, dead skin – in order to replenish it with fresh, new skin cells. This process stimulates cellular turnover and keeps your skin looking fresh and vibrant. According to the top dermatologist Rye has to offer, Dr. Eric Treiber, the biggest benefit is that these procedures stimulate the production of vital skincare proteins like collagen to help combat future issues.
