4 Quick & Easy Tips to Improve Your Facelift Results

If you’ve been wondering how long a facelift lasts, there are several factors that can affect the answer. You can give yourself the best chance at enjoying long-lasting results by following these four simple tips.

1. Use Medical Spa Treatments to Complement Your Facelift

Medical spa treatments can help you to complement and prolong the results of your facelift. Microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing treatments can make your skin look smoother and more youthful. BOTOX® and fillers can add volume to your skin, helping to fill in lines and plump gaunt areas.

2. Avoid Sun Damage

While a moderate amount of sun exposure can be healthy, it’s important to avoid sun damage. Not only does it cause prematurely aged skin, it can lead to serious health problems. You should also steer clear of the sun when you’re healing from surgery. This is one reason to have your facelift during the cold months.

3. Make Healthy Choices

Eat a balanced diet and stay well-hydrated to keep your skin healthy and supple. Avoid smoking and drinking too much alcohol, as both can dry out your skin and age you prematurely. If you take care of your skin from the inside out, it will show!

4. Adopt a Good Skincare Routine

How long a facelift lasts depends on how well that face is taken care of. Pay close attention to your everyday skincare regimen. Always use gentle cleansing products and never forget to moisturize. Exfoliate twice weekly to maintain a healthy glow. Don’t overdo it, though, since exfoliating too much can irritate and even damage your skin.
