What steps can I do now to avoid a facelift without surgery?


Thank you for this question. So much of the aging process is related to genetics. Its all about collagen production. We are constantly building up and breaking down collagen in our body as we age the collagen break down ratio changes to more break down and then build up.
However there are things that you can do stimulate collagen production.
  1. avoidance of sun on your face
  2. No smoking
  3. Chemical peels on a regular basis.
  4. Daily use of retinae and hydroquinones
  5. Working with a Medical supervised aesthetician (can use medical grade products)
  6. Monthly facials and Dermabrasion’s
  7. Skin tighenting using ELOS radio frequency treatments
  8. Skin tighenting using CO2RE carbon dioxide laser.
  9. To prevent wrinkles neuromodulators like Dysport or Botox can prevent the wrinkles
  10. Fillers or your own fat can add contour and disguise irregularities in the aging face. Sculptra is actually a collagen stimulant
The bottom line is a good maintenance program for your skin with a healthy lifestyle will optimize your facial appearance. Howeverover time and the older we become surgery may be required to obtain the aesthetic result desired.
