What can you do to maintain your rejuvenated appearance? Let’s take a look at what you can do after your facelift to promote beautiful skin for life.
- Get sun savvy. Denver is an area of the country that invites us outdoors. There are numerous activities to enjoy all through the year. When youtake advantage of the great outdoors, do so beneath the right blanket of protection. Sunscreen with SPF 30 is recommended, and it needs to offer broad-spectrum coverage to be efficient. Sunscreen should be applied half an hour before heading outside, and must be reapplied every two to three hours to prevent sun damage.
- Get skin savvy. After your facelift, your skin will continue to age. Give it the nourishment that it needs by consulting with an esthetician about products appropriate for your skin type and age.
- Get Zen. Research continues to show us just how devastating stress can be to health and wellness. It is now known that telomeres in DNA shorten when exposed to ongoing stress. The result of this shortening translates to the cells in the body, including the skin. The shorter their lifespan, the quicker tissue deteriorates.
- Get help. No one’s skin stays gorgeous forever – at least not with a little behind-the-scenes magic. It might just be possible to have one facelift and not need another if you follow up your initial procedure with skin-boosting treatments. The more regular you are with touch-up treatments, such as chemical peels, microneedling, laser treatments, and even injectables like Botox, the longer your results from facelift surgery will last.
