A Facelift is a Long-Lasting Way to Smooth Out Facial Wrinkles

Published on May 11, 2018

If there is one thing no one can escape from, it’s the early signs of aging. These changes become evident in your features from as early as your twenties and continue to progress as you get older. The most common signs of aging are wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and pigmentation.

Besides growing older, there are other factors responsible for the development of these changes. These include genetics, lifestyle, habits, exposure to the sun, stress, and environmental factors.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help slow down the appearance of these signs of aging, but it cannot prevent it completely. Eating nutritious food is a great way to keep your skin healthy, but age takes over sooner or later. As you grow older, your skin will begin to lose its elasticity, giving rise to wrinkles and fine lines. This is the result of the decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in your skin.

You could also try to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles through over-the-counter cosmetics, but they don’t always provide the best results. For long-term dramatic results, you should consider undergoing a facelift.

Smoothen out Those Wrinkles with a Facelift

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and the many other signs of aging. This procedure results in a more youthful looking appearance with smoother skin. A facelift can remove years from your appearance, giving your face improved contours and a rejuvenated look.

During a traditional facelift, the excess facial tissue is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. This results in the elimination of the telltale signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.

The incisions are made along the hairline so they are not visible once they are healed. The goal of a facelift is to turn back the clock on your appearance and reduce the visibility of facial wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Why Should You Undergo a Facelift?

The signs of aging begin to appear as you enter your late twenties. The most common reason behind this is the decreased production of collagen and elastin in your skin. Other reasons include habits such as smoking and excessive drinking, stress, and exposing your skin to the sun for long periods of time.

Over time, the elasticity of your skin reduces and you’ll notice a decrease in facial volume. This eventually results in the development of loose skin, deep wrinkles, and jowls on the lower part of your face. If you feel that these problems are affecting your appearance, you should consider undergoing a facelift.

What Can You Expect from a Facelift?

Following a facelift, you will notice a dramatic improvement in your skin and overall appearance. Those wrinkles and fine lines will have vanished, leaving behind a youthful and much more beautiful look.
