Facial rejuvenation is not just for older patients looking for a revision of signs of aging. Now more than ever, younger patients are seeking non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments to prevent facial decline before it can happen.

The “prejuvenation” revolution is here; we’ve compiled a list of the top 6 non-surgical procedures to keep your skin looking young and healthy and to save you from undergoing invasive surgery down the line (or at least put it off for longer).

Microneedling with PRP

One of the goals of preventative skin care is to heal surface and internal damage. Microneedling with PRP is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes tiny micro-injuries combined with growth factors from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to induce collagen production and healing.

Microneedling with PRP can:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smooth skin tone and textural irregularities
  • Minimize the appearance of acne scars
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks

Microneedling alone provides noticeable results, but combining this procedure with PRP yields even better preventive skin health by delivering crucial growth factors and collagen for smoother, even, rejuvenated skin. Lastly, microneedling with PRP is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that can easily be added to your monthly skincare routine for long-lasting results without downtime or recovery.

Neuromodulator Injections

At the onset of fine lines, younger patients have options for stopping more wrinkles from forming with a conservative regimen of neuromodulator injections. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, Jeuveau®, DAXXIFY®, and XEOMIN® are all neuromodulators that minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and, with extended use, can even prevent new wrinkles from forming. Neuromodulators can help combat common wrinkles such as:

  • Frown lines (11 lines)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip lines
  • And more

Neuromodulators work by restricting muscle movement beneath the skin, providing the best results in areas that form dynamic wrinkles or areas of the face with expressive movement. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by consistent muscle contraction underneath the skin, which causes the skin on top to become bunched and creates fine lines and wrinkles.

Neuromodulator injections are an excellent addition to your skincare routine, as many of these treatments last anywhere from 3–6 months, making them a low-maintenance way to combat early signs of aging.

This non-surgical treatment is quick, with minimal downtime and no recovery. Most patients can return to work immediately following treatment.

Ultherapy® Amplify

One of the most significant contributors to facial aging is loose, sagging skin and the underlying muscles. Our skin loses elasticity and volume as we age, resulting in sagging skin and subsequent wrinkles. Additionally, lifestyle factors such as excessive drinking, smoking, and sun exposure can contribute to a loss of skin elasticity.

If you notice an increase in facial wrinkles, a loss of facial definition and bounce, and loose skin, it’s better to take care of it now rather than wait for an invasive procedure such as a facelift.

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound therapy to tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and lift muscles of the face and neck. Ultherapy® can improve:

  • Deflated cheeks
  • Jawline definition
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Fine lines around the mouth
  • Jowls along the jawline
  • Loose skin under the chin
  • Sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Creases and wrinkles on the décolletage

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment, so there is no downtime or recovery.

Fraxel® re:store Fractional Non-ablative Laser

Even with a strict skin care regimen, sun damage can occur, causing sun spots, fine lines, and uneven tone. Non-ablative lasers are a gentler treatment that removes damaged skin while leaving sections of healthy skin for optimum results and quick recovery. Fraxel® re:store can:

  • Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Even skin tone, texture, and color
  • Reduce sun spots

Following treatment, Fraxel® patients will experience some redness, swelling, and light peeling. After about one week, your skin will look fresh and glowing, with a smoother, more even complexion.

Medi-Inject (Automated Controlled Rejuvenation Injection)

Medi-Inject is the newest technology that delivers precise microdoses of essential nutrients at a precise depth in a quick and straightforward procedure to help heal your skin from the inside out. This non-surgical treatment provides skin-boosting doses of vitamins and nutrients for an effective skin-healing procedure. The usual Medi-Inject “cocktail” consists of a combination of hyaluronic acid filler, neuromodulator (BOTOX® Cosmetic), vitamin C, and a skin lightener. Medi-Inject can:

  • Reduce facial wrinkles
  • Shrink pores
  • Tighten skin
  • Increase hydration and glow

Additionally, if you’re interested in the benefits of neuromodulators or facial dermal fillers, Medi-Inject is commonly paired with these aesthetic treatments for an extra boost. As Medi-Inject delivers its healing properties intradermally, results are even longer lasting than topical alternatives.

SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® Skin Booster Injections

While a daily at-home routine is vital to maintaining skin health, in-office treatments protect your skin from early signs of aging. SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a minimally invasive microdosing dermal hyaluronic acid injection that hydrates the skin from the inside out. SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a skin booster that increases glow and smooths the skin. It is not a filler. Once injected, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® attracts 1000 times its weight in water molecules, giving the skin that natural “glassy” youthful appearance.


  • Increase hydration for a natural glow
  • Improve skin texture for a smooth, glassy complexion
  • Decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Combat dullness

SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® skin boosters are a skin-healing alternative to dermal fillers by increasing hydration rather than simply increasing volume.
