Once you have refreshed your facial aesthetic with a facelift, the goal is to preserve that beauty! Here are a few simple ways you can do this.
- Throw some shade. Normally, throwing shade is something we wouldn’t want to do – except when it comes to the sun. UV damage weakens the collagen strands that support the position of facial tissue. Once a superficial muscle has been draped to a previous height, sun protection becomes an important aspect of maintenance. SPF 30 sunscreen with broad spectrum protection is what the skin needs. Daily. Not when you go into the sun, but thirty minutes beforehand. Remember to reapply!
- Age gracefully. Isn’t that what you’re doing by getting a facelift, after all? Of course! Keeping up with the natural aging process means to care for your skin on a daily basis. A visit with an esthetician may be one of the most productive ways to understand what your skin needs regarding cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.
- Remember your Zen. Stress is a real beauty-killer. The chemical reactions that occur under stress blunt the length of the telomeres in strands of DNA. As such, stress chemicals affect the general wellness and longevity of every cell, including the skin. From this perspective, you can see how stress reduction is integral to your beauty routine.
- Pampering is more than pleasing. To get a facial or other aesthetic treatment may feel like pampering, but it’s much more. Non-surgical rejuvenation may involve radiofrequency or laser or light. Each treatment has unique benefits, so consult with us about which is appropriate for your needs.
