Millennials: Have they Found the Secret to Anti-Aging?
By Carolynn Grimes
Most everyone is interested in slowing down or stopping the aging process. And rejuvenating
the face and skin to look healthier, brighter, and without spots and wrinkles is at the top of the
But how would you like to STOP the aging process BEFORE it starts? Well, it’s happening and
it’s called prejuvenation.
Millennials Take the Lead in Prejuvenation
It’s not just the older crowd that’s interested in prejuvenation. Look around… it’s the 20 and 30-
year-olds that are taking the lead in changing the way the aesthetic industry operates;
demanding more efficient treatments, that are quick and convenient.
“In terms of prejuvenation, I think it’s really important to try to prevent wrinkles. I have a lot of
patients who are millennials who come in to get small amounts of Botox, small amounts of
fillers, and what they’re trying to do is try to prevent wrinkles, prevent problems before they
occur,” says Dr. Robert Weiss, a board-certified dermatologist from Baltimore. He is currently
the President of the ASLMS (American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery) where he
previously served on the Board of Directors.
Small Tweaks Now Stave Off Future Problems
“I’ve seen patients really hold off bigger and more invasive treatments ten or sometimes closer
to twenty years, by taking an aggressive approach early and maintaining skin appearance,”
states Dr. Lawrence Bass. Dr. Bass is a nationally recognized innovator and authority on
advanced technologies in lasers and other non-surgical technology.
In addition to Botox and dermal fillers, the millennials are seeing and liking the immediate
results that lasers can bring. If they’ve had some sun exposure that they know is bad, they
come in to get a laser treatment for reversing some of that damage before they see it really
exacerbate when they’re in their 50’s or 60’s, says Dr. Weiss.
Combining Treatments for the Best Result!
A combination of treatments seems to be the key to prejuvenation. Whether that means
quality skin care combined with lasers, Botox or fillers... it’s all about tailoring the right
procedures, in the right amount, at the right time. Bass says, “They [millennials] don’t need the
same kind of treatments or the same amount of treatments that a 60-year-old does.”
The secret is out… it’s the millennials who are demanding a different approach when it comes to
looking their best. It makes a lot of sense Weiss says, to do prejuvenation and take proactive
steps toward preventing the degradation of your skin.
