Prejuvenation and Rejuvenation Treatments at Cerulean Medical Institute in Kelowna BC

Aesthetic treatments are well-known for their anti-aging benefits, but the benefits can be multiplied with prejuvenation treatments that target skin aging before damage and complications to the skin begins.

What is Prejuvenation?

Prejuvenation is a relatively newer term for anti-aging treatments. Prejuvenation is all about prevention. Although prejuvenation cannot stop the aging process, it can minimize the effects of and slow down the aging process. Collagen-boosting treatments and skincare products are a popular form of prejuvenation. Collagen is a protein naturally found in the skin and it is largely responsible for skin integrity, structure and texture. Over time, collagen production gradually slows down, which leads to skin sagging and wrinkling. By stimulating collagen production in your mid-20s – early 30s, the effects of lost collagen starting in your 30s are significantly reduced. Prejuvenation treatments are also focused on maintaining healthy skin. This includes exfoliation to remove dead skin, facials to maintain a beautiful glow, and more.

When Can You Start Prejuvenation Treatments?

Many factors contribute to healthy skin, so prejuvenation is something that you can consider long before your skin starts to age. Wearing SPF from an early age (starting in your teenage years) will keep your skin protected from the long-term effects of sun damage. Enjoying a healthy diet from early will also protect your skin and help maintain its health as you age. The next step of prejuvenation includes in-office aesthetic treatments; many of our patients start around the age of 30 or earlier.

Prejuvenation Treatment Options

At Cerulean Medical Institute, we offer several prejuvenation treatments that can be customized to your unique treatment goals and skin needs. Consider the following treatments to maintain smooth skin, a radiant complexion and minimize skin damage.


Botox in Kelowna is well-known for its ability to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, but it is also commonly used for wrinkle prevention. Botox temporarily relaxes the facial muscles, which prevents them from excessively contracting. By relaxing muscle contractions, Botox prevents the overlying skin from creasing and wrinkling. This combats some of the earliest signs of aging (fine lines around the eyes and forehead) to maintain smooth, youthful-looking skin.

Light Chemical Peel

Light chemical peels (sometimes referred to as lunchtime peels) can give your skin a quick refresh with no downtime. Light peels use a customized combination of chemical exfoliants like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or lactic acid to remove the superficial layer of dead or damaged skin cells. As a prejuvenation treatment, these peels can eliminate small imperfections and the earliest signs of skin aging or damage. After the surface layer of dead skin is removed, a healthier layer of beautiful, glowing skin is revealed.


Medical-grade skincare is one of the best ways to maintain healthy skin and protect it from damage. We offer a wide range of skincare products from ZO Skin Health, a world-renowned dermatological skincare that offers high-quality products with proven effectiveness. Products like retinol will boost collagen production and encourage cell turnover, rich moisturizers will strengthen the skin barrier, and SPF will protect the skin from UV exposure.

What is Rejuvenation?

Rejuvenation is a more familiar aesthetic treatment term. Rejuvenation treatments restores skin to a healthy, youthful state. These types of skin treatments target the effects of aging, sun damage, and other harmful factors that cause skin wrinkling and uneven texture or tone. Rejuvenation treatments can address the same skin concerns as prejuvenation treatments, however rejuvenation treats the damage and sequelae versus prejuvenation which prevents it.

Rejuvenation Treatment Options

Rejuvenation is the primary goal of almost all aesthetic treatments. More advanced signs of aging and other skin conditions like sagging skin, excess fat, and volume loss can also be treated with rejuvenating aesthetic treatments.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers in Kelowna are a great way to restore volume loss and the natural youthful contours of your face. There are two main types of fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers increase hydration in the skin to simultaneously add volume and moisturize the skin. Collagen-stimulating fillers provide more structure to effectively contour the cheeks, chin, and jawline. Both types of fillers are commonly used to fill in and lift deep wrinkles and facial folds, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and sunken cheeks. At your consultation, all of your dermal filler options and dermal filler treatment areas will be discussed to determine the best one for your personalized treatment.

Medium or Deep Chemical Peels

While light peels only target the superficial layer of skin, medium or deep chemical peels in Kelowna can penetrate into the dermal layers of the skin. Medium peels can be used to treat rough skin texture, moderate skin sagging, facial wrinkles, and more. A deep chemical peel has the strongest formula, with potent ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin to resurface healthier skin. Because of their depth, patients should expect 1-2 weeks of downtime.


We offer different types of laser facials and laser skin resurfacing for a variety of skin concerns. Advanced laser technology creates microchannels in the skin’s surface to encourage collagen production and cell regeneration. As new, healthy skin cells are resurfaced and collagen is replenished, your skin will develop a smoother texture and more even tone.


Microneedling is also known as collagen-induction therapy and it has incredible skin-rejuvenating benefits. Microneedling technology uses multiple tiny needles to puncture the skin, creating microchannels and triggering the body’s natural healing response. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated as part of this healing process. As new, healthy skin cells and collagen fibers grow, the skin is remodeled from within the deeper layers to combat aging and restore a naturally youthful look.
