Although aging is inevitable, there are lots of things you can do to help slow down the process and maintain smooth, youthful and healthy-looking skin.
So can you avoid getting a facelift altogether? It depends on how soon you start these healthy skincare habits and what your cosmetic goals are.
BOTOX® may have temporary effects, but studies have shown that it may be able to help prevent the development of future lines and wrinkles. By relaxing the muscles that cause facial movement and therefore wrinkles over time, BOTOX can help to prevent deeper creases from forming on your face while at rest.
The SPF in your makeup and moisturizer may not be enough to adequately protect your skin from the sun.
The sun is one of the largest contributors to aging skin. Avoiding deliberate tanning, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis and seeking shade whenever possible are great ways to keep your skin healthy and youthful.
Lifestyle factors also play a large role in the quality and appearance of your skin. Don’t smoke, avoid eating too much sugar and get regular exercise for healthier-looking skin.
When a Facelift Might Be Right
If you have been taking excellent care of your skin and following healthy habits since your 20s, you may be able to avoid getting a facelift down the road. However, sometimes the best-laid plans still may not be enough. For some men and women who are already seeing significant signs of aging, such as loose skin or deep wrinkles, a facelift may be the best solution.
