How to Prolong the Results of Popular Anti-Aging Procedures


Have you finally made the decision to undergo a cosmetic procedure to reverse the natural signs of aging? Whether it's to address age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage, or to increase your skin's volume, radiance, and overall tone, there are various non-surgical procedures that can redefine your beauty.

However, it isn't enough just to walk into a plastic surgery clinic and expect the best results. When it comes to getting the most mileage out of your beauty investment, there are things you need to keep in mind and start doing today in order to prolong the benefits of any cosmetic procedure. 

Step 1: Before the Procedure

If you've selected your skin rejuvenation procedure, you can start prepping well ahead of your appointment. With many cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures, getting your body as close to optimal state will make the results much better.

Using certain topical treatments, you can overhaul your skin so that it's as close to optimal as possible. This provides your plastic surgeon with a fresh canvas to work from and can drastically improve the results. I also recommend using products that promote cell rejuvenation and help remove dead skin. This can be started a few weeks before your appointment. A little bit of upfront work can help extend the lifespan of the amazing results you'll experience.

Step 2: Post-Procedure Care

Many people think that once the procedure is done, there's nothing left to do but stare in the mirror admiring how good they look. While this is recommended (and encouraged!), it's important not to fall back into old routines. You can't forget about taking the proper steps needed to prolong your beautiful, more youthful appearance. Some lotions and creams can actually harm your delicate skin during the recovery phase.
Your skin may peel, turn red, and react in certain ways after your procedure. This is common and your plastic surgeon should work closely with you to monitor your body during this phase.

Because your skin is extremely sensitive during the recovery period, it's extremely important to follow a structured regime that protects you're skin, promotes healthy recovery, and sets you up for the best results possible. Neglecting to follow a post-procedure regime can place your results in jeopardy.

Step 3: Maintenance and Pampering

Once the initial recovery phase is over, your skin has stopped reacting to the procedure, and you're in the final stages of healing, you'll notice how beautiful and natural your skin looks and feels. However, it's important to continue looking after your skin, even after weeks have passed since you underwent your treatment.

Your skin will remain sensitive for some time and will require the proper treatment and care. It needs to be hydrated and well-nourished. We typically recommend using a post-procedure product that promotes tissue regrowth and helps rebuild the skin. It's critical to rely on your team of trusted and experienced plastic surgery specialists, as they can help identify the proper post-procedure treatments and products that can prolong the amazing benefits of your cosmetic rejuvenation procedure.

You made an investment in your beauty. That's why it's important to lean on your team for advice on how to keep your skin looking radiant, youthful, and beautiful for as long as possible.
