Every so often we have patients who ask if one is ever “too early” to start anti-ageing treatments. There are also patients who question the need for treatments to rejuvenate the skin when they feel their skin is in reasonably ‘youthful’ state, with no visible signs of wrinkles, fine lines or sagging.
These are fair questions because most people do not think much about treatments for the skin when everything seems to be going well.
The truth of the matter is that our skin ages as we age. Collagen—an essential protein in the skin that gives it elasticity and hydration—decreases as we age. After the age of 20, a person produces about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year.*  On top of that, daily exposure to UV rays degrades collagen. Lack of adequate protection (such as the use of sunscreens) further accelerates the breakdown of this essential protein at a higher rate than normal ageing. Ultimately, the loss of collagen leads to wrinkle formation and dry saggy skin that makes one look tired and old. 
The best advice I would give to anyone who wishes to look youthful is this to take care of your skin before changes start to take place. This leads me to the latest buzzword in the aesthetic world – Prejuvenation.
Prejuvenation focuses on delaying aging symptoms for as long as possible. Prejuvenation treatments focus on increasing collagen production, support elastin function and preserve facial volume.
At NU.U Aesthetics & Wellness, we recommend the following for Prejuvenation.

UV ray protection – The easiest, most effective and inexpensive anti-aging regimen that provides protection from sun damage. This involves you putting on sunscreen to effectively protect you from the harmful UVA and UVB rays
