Our faces tend to show more effects from aging than other areas of our bodies. On the surface, it may become more difficult to keep a good level of hydration and skin health. At-home skincare routine using quality moisturizers and ointments can keep the skin’s surface healthy.
However, aging also can have effects below the surface of the skin and on the composition of the structures of the skin that can also change the appearance of the skin. Like other metabolic processes in the body, the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases and causes the skin to lose elasticity and not bounce back as easily.
Over time, your expressions and facial muscles can form wrinkles, creases, and fine lines to develop or deepen. There are many non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments that can help boost the production of the molecules.
Along with other treatment methods, such as BOTOX®, that block the facial muscles from contracting and deepening the creases, these treatments can be very effective at slowing and potentially reversing the signs of aging. However, if treatment is started after the effects of aging have set in, these less-invasive treatments may not be enough, and your facial skin will sag and look dull.
A facelift is a safe and effective way to provide a long-lasting return to a more youthful and toned look to your face. Depending on your facial structure and where the skin is loosest, there are a variety of specific “lift” techniques to create a customized procedure that fits your particular body and gives the most natural-looking results.
Most facelifts are done in an outpatients surgical setting, and although there is a recovery period, the duration and restrictions depend on the specific procedure; facelift surgery is a safe and effective way to get the younger look you want.
