Considering a Facelift? Learn How to Maximize Your Results Now!

Facelift surgery has historically been a popular procedure for men and women wanting to decrease the appearance of widespread lines and wrinkles across the face. Now that the average person is living longer, we are seeing an increased interest in this procedure. It is our desire to help patients attain the appearance that makes them feel confident and happy with their image. Here’s how you can get the best out of your facelift:
- Develop a good skin care routine now. Facial aging occurs only partially because of age; it is also exacerbated by environmental factors. UV damage is a big concern for any person who wants to avoid premature aging. Even after a facelift, UV rays are at work in the skin, breaking down the collagen that supports superficial tissues and muscle structure. Before your facelift, or soon thereafter, talk with an esthetician about the appropriate skin care products for your needs. Also, start wearing sunscreen every day, rain or shine.
- Develop stress management practices. Stress engraves the face in the form of lines and wrinkles, so smile and relax whenever you can. Stress also increases the production of chemicals such as cortisol, which has been shown to have an inflammatory and degrading effect on all parts of the body.
- Maintain aging skin with non-surgical procedures. One of the benefits of getting a facelift in the “age of technology” is that it is easier to maintain results for years of beauty. Maintenance treatments may include a laser treatment or microneedling, both of which encourage collagen proliferation, and injectable solutions to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
