Maintaining the Results of Your Brow Lift: Long-Term Care Strategies

Posted April 22, 2024 in Brow Lift

If you’ve undergone a brow lift, then congratulations! The brow lift is one of the most comprehensive and powerful ways to rejuvenate the upper face, helping you look young and energetic. However, as with any major investment, it’s important to get the most long-term results. Taking good care of your brow lift results can ensure you don’t need another procedure later on, requiring more downtime and surgical risks. Here are some of Dr. David Gilpin’s most recommended ways to maintain brow lift results and ensure you love your look for years to come.

Practice Good Skincare

A solid skincare regimen is a top recommendation for anyone, not just brow lift patients. Still, skincare is the foundation for keeping your skin young and healthy after a brow lift. Make sure to apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer at least once per day. Retinol is one of the most recommended skincare products for anti-aging, and our team can help you find the right option for your preferences, skin type, and more.

Wear Sunscreen

While technically part of a skincare regimen, this tip deserves its own mention. Sunscreen is the single best thing you can do for your skin to keep it young, elastic, and smooth. Sunscreen protects against sun damage, which over time, breaks down the supportive structures in the skin, causing it to sag and dry out. Daily sunscreen use with SPF 30 or higher should be central to your skincare regimen to maintain your brow lift results.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking is another damaging factor when it comes to anti-aging. Smoking not only dries out the skin but also breaks down collagen. Avoiding smoking can help extend your results exponentially – it can also ensure you get good results in the first place as smoking will hamper your ability to heal after surgery. If you’re looking to get the most out of your brow lift, it’s best to stop smoking altogether and avoid secondhand smoke wherever possible.

Don’t Tan

Tanning is the equivalent of exposing your skin to dangerous levels of sunlight all at once. As mentioned above, sun exposure is one of the most significant contributors to signs of aging. Not only can avoiding tanning help you drastically reduce your risk of skin cancer, but it can also help you get the most out of your results. If you prefer a tanned, sun-kissed look, consider using a self-tanner instead.

Consider Non-Surgical Treatments

Non-surgical treatments are often seen as an alternative to surgical procedures, but they can actually be a great way to support your results. Treatments like Botox can help prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles while microneedling can help boost collagen production to keep the skin thick and resilient. Regular non-surgical treatments can help extend your results and prevent the need for additional surgery.
