3 Simple Tips for Maximizing Your Plastic Surgery Results
After diligently listening to my patients’ requests to look like themselves, only younger, I was inspired to develop the original Band Aid Facelift, a procedure that works to remedy mild to moderate signs of facial aging in-office with gentle numbing. Since then, I’ve performed thousands of this variation of the facelift resulting in many extremely satisfied patients. Today, so many patients are eager to be educated on ways in which they can maintain their newly revitalized appearance. I’d like to offer the following tips to aid my patients in looking their best and feeling younger than ever.
As a simple tip, I recommend upping your water intake to hydrate the skin and maintain your natural looking results. For a general rule for the minimum intake of water to drink daily, take your body weight and divide by two. For example, the average 150-pound woman should be drinking a minimum of 75 ounces of water per day. By drinking the recommended amount, you’re assisting your body’s natural processes of maintaining a healthy rate of skin cell production while purging damaging oxidizing agents linked to aging skin
While this physical aging we speak of is unavoidable and to be embraced, skin treatments such as Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing with DOT laser technology can boost the production of younger looking skin cells. As an added benefit, this type of laser skin treatment is customizable for your individual skin type and very effective in treating isolated issues such as sunspots.
For the common signs of aging I see, we have the sun and environmental pollutants to blame. By using quality skin care products and consistently applying broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30+ everyday, you can keep your skin looking younger for much longer. Even as we approach the fall and winter seasons not commonly associated with sun exposure, daily application is necessary. Sun protection is imperative for maintaining plastic surgery results due to the destructive UVA rays that are absorbed by your skin, which halt the collagen and elastin fiber production that keeps youthful skin looking plumped and wrinkle-free.
