Once you have undergone facial plastic surgery to rejuvenate your look, you’ll want your results to last. Follow these tips to keep your face looking younger, longer.
- Make daily sunscreen a habit. Up to 90% of facial aging is caused by sun damage. Protect your skin daily with a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or higher.
- Stay hydrated. Drink your recommended 2 liters of water every day and limit your intake of caffeine and alcohol. Whey your body is too dry, your skin will be too dry and any lines and wrinkles on your face will show more obviously.
- Eat a balanced diet. It’s good for your overall health, and it’s great for your skin. Focusing on whole foods like lean proteins and vegetables, along with nuts and fruits will ensure that you are getting an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals to give your skin a healthy tone.
- Schedule touch-up treatments. Facial surgery can turn back the hands of time on facial aging, but it can’t prevent future aging. Dermal fillers can help you maintain your more youthful appearance be reducing the look of lines and wrinkles and providing plumpness where you’ve lost facial volume.
