Gravity appears always to prevail when it comes to aging, but that doesn’t have to be the case. There is a solution to help you fight gravity, and it can address and treat loose and sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, and fine lines, as well as provide you with long-lasting anti-aging effects.
A facelift may be the solution to your concerns, if done well.
How Long Does a Facelift Last?
A facelift is a technique that has a long-term effect on the skin. The aging process is the sole aspect that stops it from producing entirely permanent effects unfortunately. We all know that you can slow down and halt the aging process but with the help of a facelift you may expect long-lasting benefits from this treatment, which might last 10-20 years. The entire duration of your results is determined by your age at the moment of surgery as well as how your body matures over time.
This surgical process may provide you with long-lasting effects, but you must have reasonable expectations. Because the indicators of aging begin to leave their recognizable imprint on your face as you age, the effects of this surgery may endure the test of time. There are, however, noninvasive methods to treat these indicators of aging as they appear, and we can help you figure out which is best for you when and if you get to that stage.
How to Extend the Lifespan of Your Facelift
After a Facelift procedure you can expect to enjoy your results for many years to come but aging is unfortunately unavoidable. There are, however, techniques to prolong the life of your results so that you may enjoy them for longer. Cosmetic treatments and a strict anti-aging program might help you maintain your young appearance for as long as possible. Here are some of the ways that you can prolong your results:
1. Injectables & Dermal Fillers
Cosmetic injectables are a short-term but long-lasting option for treating aging symptoms. They may help you maintain a young appearance following your treatment. If you discover that the aging process is changing your results years down the line, you may use cosmetic injectables to retain them. They may help with volume loss, wrinkle filling, and facial fold correction through the years following your facelift.
Overdoing injectables will have the opposite effect.
2. Invest in High-Quality Skincare
It’s important to pay attention to what you put on your skin. Investing in a professional-grade skin care line after your treatment can help to improve and extend your effects. These products can efficiently wash, moisturize, and protect your skin, allowing it to retain its young appearance.
Consistency is important when it comes to skincare. Spending time each day caring for your skin may make a big impact in the way your skin appears and how long your benefits last for.
3. Maintain a Healthy Routine
Eating nutritious meals that feed your body and skin may also help you maintain your post-procedure results. Eating a diet rich in lean proteins, veggies, and healthy fats will help your skin remain as healthy as possible while yet retaining its natural radiance. Processed meals and high-sugar foods should be avoided at all costs.
While it is essential to adhere to these easy habits in order to extend the benefits, there are certain undesirable habits that might abbreviate them. Here are two that can have damaging effects on your Facelift results:
4. Protect Yourself In The Sun
Sun exposure is the most common cause of accelerated aging. While totally avoiding the sun isn’t practical, there are several things you can do to make your facelift effects last even longer. Prevent excessive sun exposure to preserve your results, and when you can’t avoid it, cover your skin with a hat, sunglasses, and high-quality sunscreen.
Even if the sky is gloomy, using sunscreen every day may help you prevent skin damage and premature aging. This may make a significant impact over time and help avoid more sun damage on your skin, allowing you to enjoy your facelift benefits for longer.
5. Stop Smoking
Smoking, along with excessive sun exposure, is one of the leading causes of premature visual aging. Cigarette smoke contains pollutants and chemicals that have a direct and detrimental impact on your skin, including the deepening of lines and wrinkles on the face and around the mouth.
When you decide to have this surgical procedure done, one of the best ways to prepare is to quit smoking several weeks before the procedure and not to smoke again throughout the recovery time. You may want to take this time away from smoking to completely kick the habit so that your results and young glow are preserved.
Following these simple habits will not only extend your results, but will also ensure that you keep that healthy glow you desire.
