Of course, we all want to look younger, but when is it time to move on from anti-wrinkle treatments and commit to a facelift? Tampa residents will find there are lots of tried-and-true ways to avoid wrinkles or minimize their appearance.
Examples include wearing sunscreen and staying out of the sun, using a good moisturizer, eating right, exercising and drinking lots of water.
No matter how hard we try, though, we can’t stop aging completely. Here are some signs to watch for which may mean it’s time to start thinking about a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedure.
Nothing Is Working
You’re doing everything right: the sunscreen, the water, the medical-grade wrinkle creams…none of it seems to be working anymore. While prevention is the best cure, there comes a time where you need to move on to actual treatments.
You Live at the Med Spa
If you’ve discovered the genius of outpatient med spa treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, injectables and chemical peels, you know first-hand how great the results can be. However, they’re not permanent. If you find you’re at the med spa more frequently in an attempt to keep wrinkles at bay and they’re still getting more pronounced, it may be time to invest in a facelift instead.
You Think You Look Too Old
If you’re discouraged at your appearance every time you look in the mirror, and feel years younger than your reflection would indicate, maybe it’s time for a facelift. Tampa locals especially, with all our southern sun exposure, can see early signs of facial aging like sun damage, age spots, and premature wrinkles.
If those fine lines are evolving into deep grooves and you’re not happy about it, come in and see Dr. Castellano for a consultation.
