A facelift is great for refreshing your facial structures and giving you a more youthful appearance. As you enjoy your newly rejuvenated look, it’s natural to wonder how long your facelift enhancement may last. While individual results will vary for each patient, here are few tips to keep in mind that can extend the results of your facelift for as long as possible:
1. Skin Care
Taking care of your skin is one of the best ways to extend your facelift results. There are several strategies to protect your skin from oxidative stress, like dangerous UVA and UVB rays that age skin prematurely. A few skin care tricks include the following:
- Eat a healthy diet and hydrate your body
- Avoid extensive sun exposure
- Always wear sunscreen. Many options are available specifically for your face
- Use only quality beauty products and wash your face daily
2. Maintenance Procedures
Another way to enhance your facelift results is by adding nonsurgical procedures to help keep your skin looking its best. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can help minimize dynamic wrinkles in your face and forehead that your facelift may not be able to address. Laser resurfacing and chemical peels can diminish fine lines and age spots. A combination of these procedures in addition to a facelift can address multiple aging issues and maximize results.
3. Minimize Stress
Smile. A stressful life will engrave the evidence on your face where everyone can see it. Take the time to care for yourself. Minimize the stress in your life by learning relaxation techniques, participating in enjoyable activities often and getting a little exercise. Lowering stress levels is good for every aspect of your physical and mental health, not just your recent facelift.
Following these three simple tips can keep you looking younger for years to come.
