The skin health benefits of offering preventative aesthetics treatments by Megan Crowhurst


Preventative aesthetic treatments are non-surgical procedures which work to delay the signs of ageing and maintain a youthful appearance, often by focusing on addressing the underlying causes of ageing, such as sun damage, collagen loss, and muscle relaxation, rather than simply treating the visible signs of ageing.

Early intervention in ageing is crucial for achieving optimal results with preventative aesthetic treatments. The earlier these treatments are initiated, the more effectively they can prevent the formation of deep wrinkles, sagging skin, and other visible signs of ageing. Additionally, starting early allows for more subtle and natural-looking results.


Why are preventative aesthetic treatments popular?


The popularity of preventative aesthetic treatments has been steadily increasing in recent years. This can be attributed to a few factors, including:

  • Greater awareness of the benefits of early intervention
  • Advances in technology
  • Shifting perspectives on beauty and ageing

The next generation of preventative aesthetic treatments


The future of preventative aesthetic treatments is likely to see continued innovation and development. Some of the trends that are expected to emerge include:

Personalised treatments: Preventative treatments will become increasingly personalised, tailored to each individual client’s unique needs and concerns. This will involve using advanced diagnostic tools to assess skin health and genetic factors. Utilising something such as 3D Aesthetics’ 3D Visage can aid in visualising what is going on beneath the skin and helping to educate your clients in their own skin health.

Combination treatments: Combinations of preventative treatments will continue to become more common, with different treatments being used to address various aspects of ageing. This will allow for more comprehensive and effective results. Utilising multiple modalities is key in addressing skin health and improving skin texture and tone, for example, using Polynucleotides as a skin primer to improve the quality of skin before treating using 3D Dermaforce to combine radiofrquency (RF) and microneedling.

Non-invasive technologies: There will be a continued emphasis on non-invasive technologies that can deliver effective results without the downtime and risks associated with surgery, such as 3D EMlift, which utilises high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy combined with RF to remodel and restore your patient’s skin.

Tailoring aesthetic treatments to your client’s needs

Tailoring preventative aesthetic treatments to each individual’s unique needs is crucial. Therefore, it is essential to conduct a quality consultation to assess your client’s skin type, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals. This will enable you to recommend the most appropriate treatment for their needs, and ensure good results and happy clients.

Advice on preventative aesthetic treatments


When your client is considering preventative aesthetic treatments, it is essential to assess its individual needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

Here are some additional tips for considering preventative aesthetic treatments:

  • Start early: The earlier you start preventative treatments, the better the results will be.
  • Be realistic: Preventative treatments can delay the signs of ageing, but they cannot stop the ageing process altogether.
  • Have realistic expectations: Preventative treatments are not a quick fix. It takes time and consistency to see results.
  • Make lifestyle changes: Lifestyle factors such as sun protection, a healthy diet, and regular exercise can also help to prevent the signs of ageing.

Which preventative treatments should I look into?


Here are some specific preventative aesthetic treatments that are currently available:

  • 3D Dermaforce: This treatment uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production and improve skin quality.
  • 3D Hydr02 facial: This facial uses a combination of hydrogen water and oxygen to hydrate and revitalise the skin.
  • Polynucleotides dermafocus, plinest: These treatments use polynucleotides to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity.
  • Dermalux LED therapy: LED therapy uses scientifically proven wavelengths of light to address various skin concerns, such as wrinkles, blemishes, scarring, pigmentation and redness.

Care beyond the treatments


In addition to preventative aesthetic treatments, there are a number of things you can advise your clients to do at home to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance.

  • Cleanse your skin twice daily, using a gentle cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type.
  • Moisturise your skin regularly, applying moisturiser to your face and neck after cleansing and again before bed.
  • Protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even on cloudy days.
  • Eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Get enough sleep, as this is essential for skin repair and rejuvenation.
  • Manage stress as stress can contribute to premature ageing. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, or exercise.
