Our physical features will always require maintenance despite the plastic surgery operations we undergo.
The average facelift lasts 7 to 10 years before a patient will notice they need additional work to restore their results, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
When we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and our face begins to droop and wrinkle. A facelift can rejuvenate your face by repositioning the deeper tissues and removing excess facial skin, but it does not have the power to halt the future signs of aging from occurring.
If you wish to see the results from your facelift last a lifetime, it will be necessary to maintain your results through different non-invasive injectable treatments, living a healthy lifestyle, and adopting a skin care regimen.
A facelift cannot stop the future signs of aging from happening, but you can prolong your facelift results by having regular injectable treatments.
How Can Injectables Prolong My Facelift Results?
The steps you can take to prolong your facelift results include having regular injectable treatments to minimize fine lines and wrinkles that may arise after your facelift.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator that improves lines, wrinkles, and certain other features on the face that patients may be dissatisfied with.
This treatment is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that targets the common signs of aging and restores volume in the cheek area.
With age comes unwanted fat deposits on the face. KYBELLA® can improve the appearance of a double chin by destroying the fat cells, prohibiting them from being able to store fat.
This procedure can drastically improve your profile by getting rid of fat that makes your face droop and sag.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler plumps the skin with calcium hydroxylapatite and stimulates the natural production of collagen in the skin.
RADIESSE® provides immediate lessening of wrinkles and folds on the face.
What Other Ways Can I Maintain My Facelift Results?
To prolong your facelift results, you have to commit to and maintain a medical-grade skin care program that your plastic surgeon customizes for you.
This program may include:
- Cleansing your face no more than twice a day
- Applying moisturizer daily to reduce oily skin
- Applying sunscreen every day
- Using Vitamin A (retinol) and its derivatives to increase collagen content in the skin to decrease fine lines and increase cell turnover
It is not enough to take care of your skin at home and have occasional injectable treatments. You also need to live a healthy lifestyle and nourish your body with nutrient-rich food, which will significantly help you prolong your facelift results.
You should avoid foods high in sugar and instead commit to eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
