How Can You Achieve the Best Possible Results from a Facelift?

Lots of people ask, “How do you get the best results from a facelift?” Our Toronto-based team can give you advice on steps you can take before and after to optimize your results. Before getting into how to optimize facelifts, let’s first explore how this type of cosmetic procedure works. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and our facial muscles weaken, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. While some people choose to embrace their aging, others opt for a facelift to help restore a more youthful appearance. A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the skin and muscles in the face and neck, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you’re considering a facelift, there are some tips you can follow to help ensure you get the best results possible. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the best tips for maximizing results.

  • Avoid Sun Exposure

If your surgical scars are exposed to UV rays, they’ll become darker and more pronounced so you should avoid sun exposure, especially when your skin is still healing. Sun exposure can cause damage to the skin and lead to premature aging.

  • Follow Guidelines After Surgery

After your facelift, it’s important to take care of yourself to ensure a smooth recovery and the best possible results. Follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions, which may include resting, avoiding strenuous activities, and avoiding alcohol and certain medications. Be sure to eat a healthy diet and stay hydrated, as this can help to promote healing.

  • Continue Caring for Your Skin

Don’t assume that after you have a facelift, you won’t need to do anything else to care for your skin; aftercare is important. A healthy lifestyle and good skincare practices will be important to keep your results looking great. In addition to limiting sun exposure and wearing SPF, avoiding smoking, maintaining a stable weight, and having good skin care practices along with skin rejuvenation procedures will help you preserve the results.
