Prejuvenation: Next-Generation Anti-Aging Skin Care
You’ve heard of skin rejuvenation, but what about prejuvenation? This aesthetic treatment philosophy is steadily trending among image-conscious millennials who want to begin preventing and correcting signs of skin aging at the earliest opportunity. Over the last few years, increasing numbers of women and men in their late teens to early 30s have been seeking proactive, non-surgical cosmetic skin treatments aimed at preserving their youthful skin and facial appearance. Award-winning Los Angeles plastic surgeon Christine Petti, MD offers the state-of-the art procedures and products these young patients are looking for, including advanced laser techniques, a wide range of the latest dermal fillers and injectable products, customized skin treatments, and innovative skin care lines. The majority of these skin enhancing options require little to no downtime, and most patients experience minimal, if any, discomfort during treatment:
Neuromodulators, like BOTOX Cosmetic, relax muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles to form. For young patients, Dr. Petti identifies areas with hints of creasing and strategically injects BOTOX Cosmetic to prevent early wrinkles from developing further—keeping an aging appearance at bay. Regularly scheduled touch-ups help maintain smooth, youthful skin even as the years advance.
Today’s dermal fillers are highly specialized, and young patients are able to benefit from early treatment with these products to maintain youthful volume in the skin, lips, cheeks, and areas around the eyes. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are often the ideal solution for counteracting the gradual depletion of facial fat that comes with aging. Dr. Petti’s injecting experience and product expertise allow her to develop customized treatment plans for optimal results.
Laser and Light-Based Skin Treatments
Dr. Petti offers a wide array of laser and light-based skin rejuvenation options that can be used to effectively correct a multitude of aging skin concerns. Whether it’s fractional skin rejuvenation with the SmartSkin CO2™ laser, an IPL FotoFacial™, or a PrecisionTx™ laser lift, young patients can correct early signs of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, skin laxity, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone with incredible results. In addition to helping maintain a youthful glow, many of these treatments have the added benefit of tightening collagen for firmer, smoother, more supple skin.
Innovative Skin Treatments with Advanced Aesthetic Technology
Breakthroughs in aesthetic technology have delivered exciting new ways to help treat and prevent signs of skin aging. One of Dr. Petti’s most dynamic anti-aging skin treatments is Vivace™ Radiofrequency Microneedling, which combines effective microneedling with the application of RF energy and SELPHYL® Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) to deliver maximum skin enhancement benefits. This technique harnesses and amplifies the power of the skin’s own repair mechanisms and growth factors to bring about multidimensional skin improvements.
