Is it ever too early to prevent the signs of aging? Answering that question is what PreJuvenation is all about. At Lazur La Vie in Nyack, NY, we want to help you step in before you notice aging signs and stop them from showing up in the first place.
What Is PreJuvenation??
This term has become a buzzword in the esthetic world, but it’s not just a faddish trend. It’s a thoughtfully planned series of steps that prevents those skin changes previously assumed to be an inevitable part of aging. The idea is born of the realization that since many of these signs of aging are preventable, it simply makes good sense to prevent changes rather than wait until they show up to treat them.
The Steps of Effective PreJuvenation
Effective PreJuvenation includes both healthy at-home beauty practices and visits to your esthetician. Both are necessary to truly stave off the signs of aging and maintain (and enhance) a youthful look.
Protection From the Sun
Sun exposure is the single most significant factor in the aging signs we see in our faces. Damage from UVA and UVB rays causes a chain reaction of skin damage that begins the moment we’re first exposed to the sun in childhood. The sun is the primary, though not only, cause of wrinkles, sun spots, reduced elasticity, and changes in the skin’s texture.
Even accounting for other serious skin-destroying factors, like pollution, stress, poor diet, and tobacco use, skin health still tracks most closely to sun exposure. All this means that a strong PreJuvenation routine begins with protection from the sun, and that protection should start as early as possible.
We can’t go back in time, but wherever you are now, you can start wearing a Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen like Lazur La Vie’s Sensi-Lase with SPF 30, whenever you go out. If you have children, start them on good sunscreen habits early. It’s also smart to stay out of the sun entirely between 10 am and 4 pm when the UV rays are strongest.
Stimulating Collagen and Elastin
The sun does its damage, but there are other things going on, too. The most serious is the loss of collagen and elastin that happen as we age. Collagen is a protein that creates a strong structure for the skin, while elastin gives our skin its stretchable, elastic structure so it can bounce back after we make a movement. These two proteins are enhanced by our body’s production of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that attracts and keeps moisture.
When our production of these three elements is at youthful levels, our skin is strong, elastic, supple, and free of wrinkles and textures issues. Unfortunately, all that starts to change as our natural production of these substances drops. With less collagen and elastin, our skin can’t renew itself as quickly as it once did and we start to “look our age.” PreJuvenation can stop these issues before they start. At Lazur La Vie, we offer several treatments that work with your body to keep up naturally youthful skin rejuvenation:
This uniquely gentle technology can be used by both men and women and is suitable for all skin types and tones. It eliminates bacteria, stops inflammation, calms overactive sebum production, and targets dark spots even before they appear. By targeting the melanin in spots that have yet to form, the laser signals to the body to replace those spots with fresh, healthy collagen.
We offer a variety of skin resurfacing treatments, and each works by delivering tiny, controlled wounds to the skin. These wounds cause no harm at all, but they’re just enough to trick the body into believing there has been an injury. When the body perceives an injury to the skin, it immediately generates higher levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in response.
These treatments keep your body’s natural healing and skin repair system working at a youthful pace, which keeps you from forming those unwanted signs of aging in the first place. Ask us about the Clear Lift 4D(TM), microneedling, dermaplaning, and other techniques. We can help you find the right treatment or combination of treatments to keep your skin rejuvenating at a good rate.
Getting regular facials can keep your skin looking younger for longer. Facials exfoliate, which allows serums and nutrients to reach the lower levels of the skin to provide strength and support for healthy rejuvenation. Facials can also use radiofrequency and cryotherapy to revitalize the skin and inspire better collagen production. When you come in for your initial consultation, we can help you design a schedule for your personal rejuvenation that will use the best techniques to keep you looking young.
A Great Skincare Regime
For skin to remain youthful, it needs support. The right serums, moisturizers, exfoliation schedules, and toners deliver important antioxidants like vitamin C and healthful collagen and hyaluronic acid. While none of these products is a substitute for anti-aging treatments like dermaplaning or laser rejuvenation, they are necessary support and should never be neglected. Lazur La Vie’s Beauty is a Way Of Life Product Line supports their treatments and takes the guesswork out of finding products that work for you. When you come to see us, a highly trained Laser Aesthetician will recommend the right products and home care tools to keep your face young and fresh
