The concept burst onto the scene in 2013 as a way to use plastic surgery techniques preemptively to “prejuvenate” the skin and delay the implementation of more invasive treatments like facelifts and surgery.
By treating your skin better and reducing the signs of aging through careful, measured intervention, Dr. Whitfield can help you fulfill the ideals of prejuvenation by keeping your skin tight and delaying more invasive interventions.
Because prejuvenation is so new, serious plastic surgeons like Dr. Whitfield have spent the last few years doing their research. His goal was to determine exactly which procedures were the most effective at fighting off the signs of aging. In his research, Dr. Whitfield has found some scientifically proven skin tightening treatments out there that can help fight the signs of aging - without turning to toxins or injectables.
The core of the argument for prejuvenation is that small interventions early on can do more to delay larger interventions later in life. You brush your teeth to avoid gum disease, right? So, why not do regular maintenance on your skin? Other than being an adult, there is no real age limit on when you can start using skin tightening treatment options to maintain your look. As part of your consultation with Dr. Whitfield, he’ll review your goals with you and help you determine a plan for your skin and your overall aesthetic wellness. Together, you will determine which treatments make sense for your specific goals, and how often you will need to do them to reach them.
This idea of strategic intervention is based on Dr. Whitfield’s research into the theories behind prejuvenation. He has concluded that the best way to preserve your skin’s elasticity is by strategically incorporating non-invasive treatment options. These treatments are best performed when they have a specific goal in mind - such as the emergence of fine lines or an area of the face that could use better definition. Dr. Whitfield prefers to recommend noninvasive treatments as they offer great results, usually with little to no recovery time. Dr. Whitfield takes care to balance patient safety, patient comfort, and results when helping you craft your aesthetic wellness plan, which may consist of the following treatments.
Dr. Whitfield recommends most patients who come in for prejuvenation procedures start out with radiofrequency (RF) energy treatments first to tighten skin and maintain a healthy glow. These treatments are hands-free and noninvasive but have been proven to have a noticeable effect on maintaining youthful skin.
Developed by InMode, Evoke uses the power of RF energy to tighten the skin around the face and neck in a simple, non-invasive, hands-free procedure. Evoke’s applicators are placed in a headset that can be positioned to where the RF energy can be honed in on a particular part of the body that needs skin tightening or definition, including:
Once the applicator has been positioned, Evoke uses RF energy to stimulate the cells beneath the skin which produces a tightening effect. Compared to injectables, which either add filler or release muscles to produce the desired effect, RF energy causes the skin itself to tighten in response to the heat from the RF energy, while the body’s natural healing process produces collagen, which promotes skin elasticity.
What Evoke does for the face and neck, Evolve does for the rest of the body - along with other perks. InMode took the same RF technology behind Evoke and then added Electrical Muscle Stimulation to its applicators, along with a patented tissue vacuum technology. The EMS stimulation causes the muscles beneath the applicator to contract at a rate faster than the human brain can replicate, and the tissue vacuum delivers uniform RF energy to subdermal fat layers. Evolve can be used to transform the look and tightness of your skin in multiple areas, including:
Evolve feels like a combination workout and hot stone massage, with the results being a slimmer, more defined body! After a few sessions of this non-invasive procedure, patients routinely see tighter skin, more defined muscles, and noticeable fat loss - all without the invasiveness of traditional liposuction or “lift” surgery.
No matter what the procedure, Dr. Whitfield believes there is no substitute for doing it the right way. His patients know him as thorough, professional, and most importantly, attentive to their needs. He will use his experience and his knowledge to guide you to your ideal body in a way that maximizes your safety and comfort.
