How to Extend the Life of Your Facelift

No matter how skilled your plastic surgeon is, a face lift isn’t going to completely stop the aging process. Gravity continues pulling down on muscles, the sun’s UV rays keep damaging your skin and collagen production keeps declining. For many men and women face lifts can help you maintain a more youthful for longer look despite all these factors, as long as you follow a few simple tips.

A Proactive Approach

For younger people who are just starting to show signs of aging in their face, the best approach is to be proactive. These days, the approach toward facial rejuvenation isn’t to rush right into surgery. Instead, a combination of treatments can be used even before your first wrinkle to help keep skin healthy, glowing and young.

Medical-grade facials and chemical peels can remove and repair the damaged outer layers of the skin, revealing healthy skin below. Laser resurfacing accomplishes the same goal, using a more aggressive approach. Once wrinkles do start becoming more visible, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can smooth away dynamic wrinkles, while dermal fillers can be used to add volume to deeper lines and furrows.

All of these treatments work the same magic after a face lift as before, and accomplish the same goal: to help you put your best face forward. If you take good care of your skin following surgery by always using sunscreen and following a sensible skincare regimen, minor cosmetic procedures can definitely extend the life of your face lift.
