How to Make Your Facelift Results Last Longer

Posted on August 8, 2014 by - Face Procedures, Rhytidectomy

Although the wisdom that you acquire as you age is desirable, it’s a different story when it comes to the physical aspects of facial aging — from forehead wrinkles to sunken cheeks to sagging jowls. Here at our Bonita plastic surgery practice, a face lift is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic surgeries by men and women who want to reduce the appearance of the aforementioned physical signs of aging.

Although the results of a facelift could last for long periods of time, prospective patients need to understand the importance of taking steps to maintain the beautiful results of the procedure. Read on our recommendations below!

1. Take sun protection seriously.

Sun exposure is one of the primary causes of physical aging. Therefore it is crucial to take steps to further avoid skin damage by wearing protective clothing and using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. In addition, you might want to use makeup and skin care products that contains SPF.

2. Schedule laser skin resurfacing procedures regularly.

Laser skin resurfacing treatments help remove the top layers of the skin to give way to new skin cells. This results to a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other blemishes for a more rejuvenated look. Moreover, laser also promotes the production of collagen, a naturally occurring substance that is primarily responsible for the smooth and plump appearance associated with healthy looking skin.

3. Consider regular injectable appointments.

Injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers will help enhance facelift results by preventing further formation of lines and creases. In addition, fillers help restore youthfulness by adding volume to areas that tend to shrink as you age.

4. Take care of your body from the inside.

First, take steps to eat foods from whole food sources. As what the American journalist Michael Pollan recommends – Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. Second, limit your intake of alcohol and quit smoking as soon as possible. Lastly, move a lot! Exercise surely does wonders to your complexion.

5. Use the right skin care products for your face.

Each face is different and have various needs depending on genetics, lifestyle, and your surrounding environment. Consider visiting a professional skin care specialist to help you figure out the right products for your skin type.
