Save Your Hide: Tips for Optimizing Your Facial Plastic Surgery Results

During his tenure as an Atlanta cosmetic and plastic surgeon, Dr. John LeRoy has performed nearly 4,000 facelift procedures alone. After years of hearing patients’ requests to look like themselves, only younger, Dr. LeRoy developed the original Band Aid Facelift to correct mild to moderate signs of facial aging in-office with gentle numbing.  With so many patients eager to learn ways in which they can maintain their newly rejuvenated appearance longer, Dr. LeRoy offers the following to help keep his patients looking their best:facelift surgery atlanta

Shield and protect:  The sun and environmental pollutants are responsible for many of the signs of aging we all complain about.  Using quality skin care products and wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ everyday (even on cloudy days and during the winter) will go a long way in keeping your skin looking younger longer.  Without protection, the harmful UVA rays from the sun absorbed by your skin speed the breakdown of collagen and elastin fiber production responsible for keeping youthful skin supple and wrinkle-free.

Water it!  No doubt you’ve heard the old adage that the grass is always greener where you water it.  The same can be said, in a way, about your skin.  By drinking the recommended 64 ounces of water a day, you’re helping your body maintain a healthy rate of skin cell production and exfoliation as well as helping purge harmful oxidizing agents linked to cosmetic issues as well as numerous serious health conditions.

Connect the DOTs:   While physical aging is inevitable, even after cosmetic facial surgery, skin treatments like Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing with DOT laser technology can provide a boost to your body’s ability to produce younger looking skin cells.  Additionally, the highly customizable nature of laser skin treatment is also useful in treating those isolated issues like age and sun spots as they emerge.
