Proper skin care after a facelift procedure is essential to maintain your tight, youthful, vibrant appearance. A facelift procedure takes years off your appearance, but as you continue to age, your skin continues to stretch and loose its elasticity. Everyone ages differently, that is why there are many options to help you maintain your skin’s radiant look.
Dr. Totonchi, in Cleveland, Ohio suggests Halo laser treatments every 6-12 months to the full face, to help maintain your facelift’s uplifting and radiant appearance. The Halo laser is a hybrid treatment laser. The hybrid laser has ablative and non-ablative technology, which lightly exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin while having deeper penetrating and tightening results to assist in maintaining an even skin tone, color and texture while giving a smoother appearance to the skin. The combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths gives optimum results with little downtime.
Topical creams and moisturizers are another element in maintaining your youthful, radiant look. Dr Totonchi will prescribe a Retin-A product which is a form of vitamin-A, effective in treating the signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, and loose skin. Retin-A helps firm and smoothen the skin by increasing the cell turn-over rate which gently exfoliates the skin and stimulates collagen formation. Moisturizing creams which are non-comedogenic should be used on the face to minimize poor blockage. Dr. Totonchi will suggest a moisturizer that will work best for your skin type. Lastly, a sunscreen with SPF of 30-50 is highly suggested after your facelift procedure, to help combat the sun’s damaging UV rays. Once again, you will want to find a sunscreen which is non-comedogenic and Dr. Totonchi has various skin care lines that he suggests depending on your skin care needs and price range.
As the signs of aging continue, products such as Botox can minimize the dynamic wrinkles you see with facial animation. Botox works well in the glabellar area and around the eyes, which we call crow’s feet. Dermal fillers or fat injection can fill in the hollows that may start to develop under the eyes, nasal labial folds or marionette lines. These products are useful for years after a facelift procedure to help keep that youthful, facial appearance.
