That Facelift Comes with Homework
- Posted on: Jun 15 2017
For full-fledged facial rejuvenation, patients of Luxurgery in NYC often choose to undergo a surgical facelift. This procedure has evolved over time and is now recognized as an optimal method for lifting and smoothing the superficial tissues of the face. After a facelift with your experienced, board-certified cosmetic surgeon, you can expect to look years younger. What you cannot expect is for your aging process to stop. Of course, we know you don’t. What you may not know, though, is how you can do a little homework to support long-lasting results from your facelift. Here are a few ideas:
- Let that stress go, Baby! Stress can wreck your productivity. It can wreck your health. It can age your skin. The stress hormones that live in the body for too long degrade the strands of your very DNA, shortening the telomeres that support health and wellness. The shorter your telomeres, the faster your cells can become damaged, or worse, die off. Dead cells are a death sentence to good skin.
- Create a custom skin care routine. Your skin has aged in part because your whole body is aging. It’s like that for all of us! Another reason your skin may have aged in the manner and timing that it has is that of what you have – or have not – put on it. Skin care is crucial to cellular turnover and dermatologic health. Be good to your skin. Start by using sunscreen every single day. A little SPF 15 in your moisturizer may not be enough. You may need to consider applying a light, broad-spectrum, SPF 30 for optimal UV protection.
- Know when to get help. Your esthetician can provide a valuable service by helping you choose appropriate products. We can also help you maintain the results of your facelift with non-surgical wrinkle-reducing and skin tightening treatments, such as fractional laser resurfacing.
Facelift surgery can significantly reduce the signs of aging without altering your authenticity. To learn more about the various options for facelift surgery, as well as how you can maintain facial youthfulness without surgery, call our New York City office at (212) 508-0000.
