You’ve made a notable investment in your facelift surgery. While the longevity of your results largely depends on the severity of your aging concerns, the type of facelift procedure you underwent and your age at the time of surgery, there are still countless things you can do to make your results last longer.
If you have recently had facelift surgery or any type of facial plastic surgery to correct the signs of aging, here are steps you can take to maximize your cosmetic investment and prolong your youthful results:
The health of your body has a profound impact on the appearance of your skin. Keeping yourself hydrated and eating a nutrient-rich diet can ensure your skin is able to repair cell damage and flush out toxins effectively.
Use Sun Protection
Chronic exposure to the sun can accelerate the aging process and formation of wrinkles. Make sure to use a high SPF sunscreen on your face or wear a hat when you spend time outdoors. Remember that you can still reap the consequences of UV rays when it is cold outside.
Smoking can wreak havoc on your skin as well as restrict your body’s natural healing process after plastic surgery. Studies show that adults who smoke look older than those who do not. Smoking tobacco causes the elasticity of your skin to weaken or breakdown, which promotes the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke can deplete vital nutrients that give your skin its youthful glow.
Consider Skin Resurfacing
To ensure your facial skin stays healthy and vibrant after your facelift surgery, it is a good idea to schedule some skin resurfacing treatments. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing are quick, no-downtime treatments that can make a difference in how well you retain your cosmetic results.
