Having a facelift is an exciting prospect for men and women who have become concerned about the persistent appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging jowls. The facelift has remained a top cosmetic procedure over the years, with more than 125,000 Americans undergoing this surgery each year. The popularity of facelift surgery tells you something: it works.
Facelift surgery works, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have work to do after a facelift. The more that you do to pamper your skin and superficial tissue, the longer the results from facelift surgery will last. The process is simple!
- Shield your skin. You may avoid too much time in the sun to avoid a bad sunburn. Did you know, though, that UV exposure begins to break down the strands of collagen that support the firmness of skin within a few minutes’ time? This is why sunscreen is a must-have beauty practice. More than high SPF, it is broad-spectrum attributes that make sunscreen effective. Be sure that yours shields your skin from UVA and UVB light.
- Shield your psyche. What could your psyche have to do with your skin? It turns out, our mental wellness, particular where stress is concerned, is interconnected with beauty. Stress causes the release of dangerous chemicals, such as cortisol and adrenaline. In small doses, these chemicals may be beneficial. When they have a continual presence in the body, though, DNA is adversely affected. Telomeres in DNA become short, diminishing cell life and promoting premature aging in some ways. Want to feel great about your appearance? Add some stress management practices into your day.
- Strengthen your shield. Your skin is, in itself, a shield that can be strengthened. As it relates to the results from facelift surgery, patients can extend beauty with minimally invasive treatments and spa treatments such as chemical peels. Botox and dermal fillers are frequently used in conjunction with or as a form of maintenance after facelift surgery to add volume and minimize lines.
