Your Facelift is Just the Start of Something Beautiful
- Posted on: Jun 15 2017
Facelift surgeries continue to number over 100,000 on an annual basis in our country. We are proud to adhere to high-standard when treating our patients’ concerns. In addition to guiding you through your initial facelift process, we also find immense value in offering tips on how to maximize the results this procedure provides. A facelift is one of the best gifts you can give yourself; maintaining it is the next. Here, we want to touch on some of the easiest ways you can do that.
Protect your Skin
One of the primary culprits of aging is sun damage. It’s next to impossible to stay out of the sun when you live in Florida – we live here for the gorgeous weather, after all! If you want to be able to enjoy your refreshed face and your environment, get savvy about your sun-care. SPF 30 is adequate for filtering a large percentage of light. The term to look for on your sunscreen bottle is “broad spectrum.” This tells you that both UVA and UVB light is being filtered. Also, double up on protection by wearing a hat with a rim of at least 3 inches.
Protect your Mind
We hear a lot more about stress and how to manage it lately. This isn’t a result of the modern-day hippie movement; it’s because stress kills. It kills your mood, and it kills the cells throughout your body. It does so by affecting the DNA, shortening telomeres that run through its strands. Telomeres are directly related to cellular health. The shorter they are, the shorter the lifespan of cells, including those that support your skin.
Get Protective Support
You can’t do it all alone. Maintaining beauty through the ages is a team-effort. Even after your facelift, our team is here to provide you with the collagen-boosting treatments needed to slow the aging process. Non-surgical treatments such as fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and even chemical peels provide numerous benefits to the aging face.
