After getting a facelift, you can expect to still look like yourself—just a younger, revitalized version.
If you’re wondering how you can make your facelift last for many years to come, take a look at these four important tips to follow for great skin.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
The sun’s UV rays can wreak havoc on your skin, causing lines, wrinkles, sagging and age spots. To help prolong your facelift results, avoid deliberate tanning, wear a wide-brimmed sunhat, use sunscreen and seek shade.
When choosing a sunscreen, look for broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection of at least SPF 15 for use on your face on a daily basis.
Adopt Healthy Lifestyle Habits
Besides practicing good sun protection, there are quite a few other lifestyle habits that can make or break your facelift results. Avoid smoking, which can accelerate the natural aging process. It’s also important to eat healthy, balanced meals, get enough sleep and get regular exercise to look and feel youthful.
Eating antioxidant-rich foods may help to give your skin a boost of youthful radiance.
Let Skincare Lend a Helping Hand
Using the right skincare products can be a huge help when trying to make your facelift results last. Ask your plastic surgeon for recommends on the best anti-aging skincare products for your unique skin type and concerns.
Turn to Injectables
Don’t forget that you can pair cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers, BOTOX®, laser resurfacing and more with your facelift to help you get the absolute most out of your results.
