Prejuvenation Is Popular Among Millennials



As for 2020 and beyond, when asked to predict the top future trends in the space, 73 percent of survey respondents cited preventative treatments among millennials — also nicknamed "prejuvenation." The whole idea behind the concept, as its name implies, is that having noninvasive treatments at a younger age will prevent the need for surgical procedures down the line.

The millennial generation has grown up under the contestant scrutiny of social media – they don't know any different," Jacono says. "This constant magnifying glass drives their continued desire for 'tweak-ments,' or multiple small procedures to stave off any drastic rejuvenation as they are continuously prioritizing their appearance. This is 'prejuvenation.

In other words, millennials "want to maintain their aesthetic edge against aging, so they start before the visible signs appear," Gordon says. This trend is likely what's fueling the increased interest in noninvasive procedures like Botox and laser treatments.

The Truth About BOTOX® Cosmetic - Dr Speron Gets Interviewed:

For anyone who thinks frown lines, forehead creases or other facial expression lines are preventing them from looking as good as they feel, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a wonderful option. The results are pretty dramatic and there is no down-time. Working people today definitely prefer the techniques with no down time so they do not have to sacrifice much time away from their busy schedules. In 2004, there were 2,837,346 BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, up 25 percent from 2003. With its recent FDA approval in 2001, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become even more popular because now people assume it’s safe.


ASPS & ASAPS Position: The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) maintains that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for aesthetic purposes appear to be very safe and effective. Patients who show early signs of aging, as well as those who may not be suitable candidates for more extensive aesthetic facial surgery, may be good candidates for this procedure. Certain medications (some antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, or aspirin) and even some vitamins and herbs may increase the potency of BOTOX® Cosmetic and may increase bleeding and bruising at the time of injection. Therefore, patients should be candid with their surgeon about all medications and supplements. Pregnant or nursing women should postpone undergoing this procedure. It is not known whether injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic has any effect on a fetus or whether it is found in breast milk.

It can also be used to fill out depressed scarred areas on any part of the body. Fat injection is not permanent, and may require an effective maintenance program.

  • Outpatient procedure that generally takes under an hour
  • Injections may last from several months to permanently
  • Little or no downtime
  • Minimal discomfort, which can be controlled with medication
  • Because fat is from the patient's own body, no pre-testing is required and the fat cannot be rejected
