15 Feb How to Extend Your Cosmetic Surgery Results
The pandemic ushered in a boom of cosmetic surgeries as patients realized they finally had the time for that facelift, eyelid lifts—or both. When you opt for these more aggressive procedures, you can turn back the clock well over a decade while still looking natural and like you. But what if those results could last even longer and look even better? They can with routine maintenance treatments that are non-invasive or minimally invasive, including a customized at-home daily regimen designed just for you.
There are two parts to skin rejuvenation: more aggressive in-office procedures like surgery and day to day maintenance on a gentler level. You just made a big investment in yourself with cosmetic surgery and now it’s time to extend and maximize those results.
How to Get Started
A routine neurotoxin is a must for anyone who wants to keep that clock from inching forward again. Botox is the most well-known neurotoxin, but there’s also Dysport and Xeomin. These injections stop muscles from creating unwanted lines and wrinkles, and also have a slew of off-label uses such as perspiration and migraine prevention. Most neurotoxins last about 4 – 6 months so it’s only an occasional, quick appointment to keep up with this youth booster.
There are also a number of skin tightening procedures to help keep your skin looking young, taut, and firm. Remember that when you lift skin surgically, you’re just setting the clock back—you’re not freezing it. Signs of the passing time will keep appearing unless you intervene on a regular basis with less invasive approaches.
Keeping Skin Tight and Right
You have many options, such as using heat to kick-start collagen production. Collagen is the natural protein we produce for younger-looking skin, but we make less of it as we age. That doesn’t have to happen when you count on skin tightening treatments to tell your body when to produce more collagen and exactly where.
We offer only the most effective and safest technologies including Thermage FLX, Genius, and Ultherapy. They all deliver the ideal heat to the soft tissue so that you can sustain rejuvenated skin for the long haul. You can also use these treatments on the face, neck, and even sensitive areas like the eyelids. Exactly which heat-based skin tightening treatment is best for you will vary and depend on your goals and current skin, but you’ll get an individualized recommendation during your consultation.
Some patients find that even after a facelift or eyelid lift, they aren’t 100 percent happy with their skin because of hyperpigmentation. Unless a surgery actually trims away the hyperpigmented areas, they’re still going to be there. Broken blood vessels, sun spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation do not complement a youthful appearance, but it is possible to remove these spots with a myriad of procedures and products.
From chemical peels to laser technology like Clear + Brilliant, BBL, LaseMD, and more, the perfect treatment is waiting for you. Let’s make the most of your surgery starting today—schedule a consultation to get started.
