After your facelift procedure at Imagos Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL, now is the time to maintain your results and follow your plastic surgeon’s, long term  post-surgical instructions. With these helpful tips on enhancing the results of your facelift procedure, you’ll be showing off your results in no time!

Tips For Maintaining Your Facelift Results

1. Botox

To help keep wrinkles and fine lines away from areas of your face that are the most expressive (forehead, around the eyes, and the mouth), schedule regular Botox® injections with Imagos Plastic Surgery. Botox injections target muscle groups, temporarily preventing nerve signals from reaching the targeted muscles, resulting in smoother skin and the prevention of further wrinkling.

2. Dermal Fillers

To prevent the loss of facial volume, Imagos Plastic Surgery offers the following dermal fillers :

  • Restylane Contour
  • Restylane Kysse
  • Restylane Refyne
  • Restylane Defyne
  • Revance RHA 3 & 4.

Restylane and Revance products use a viscous gel composed of hyaluronic acid which draws moisture into itself for a natural look and feel to the skin.

3. Obagi SkinCare Products

If you’re unsure what skincare products are the best for your skin type  after a facelift procedure, Imagos Plastic Surgery has you covered with Obagi Skin Care products.  This medical grade skin care line has effective, science-based ingredients to help fight signs of aging while keeping your skin radiant. Obagi skin care products  are tailored to meet the needs of all skin types, allowing us to tailor a daily routine to meet your individual needs.

4, The Perfect DermaPeel

DermaPeel involves a chemical peel where a serum composed of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or lactic acid is applied to the skin and allowed to sit for several minutes before being wiped away. The chemical peel penetrates deep into the skin’s epidermis, triggering collagen production and elasticity. DermaPeels help boost the skin’s integrity, improve signs of sun damage, and fight off premature signs of aging.

5. Microneedling With PRP

Our microneedling device creates micro-injuries  in the skin’s surface triggering the body’s natural healing response. This non-invasive treatment strengthens your skin’s surface, reduces scarring, and brightens dull or tired skin. At Imagos Plastic Surgery, we take our Microneedling treatments a step further by incorporating PRP (platelet-rich plasma). We draw a small amount of your blood, purify it, and apply it to the skin after a microneedling treatment. The micro-injuries draw the platelets from within your blood and accelerate the healing process.

6. Plasma Pen

Plasma Pen is a non-invasive , anti-aging procedure that targets a variety of skin conditions including loss of elasticity , saggins and fine lines and wrinkles. This FDA approved treatment uses a fibroblast therapy technique to stimulate production of collagen in the skin by creating small micro-injuries in the treated area(s). There is minimal downtime , and the results can last for years!
