Surgery on any part of the body is the significant step that you take to improve appearance and
health. The patient looks wrinkle free and younger than before as it tightens the loose facial
skin and muscles.
When you undergo facial aesthetics or cosmetic surgery the skin bears the high amount of
chemicals and insulin. The cosmetics procedure varies in the degree which results in a
healthy skin ranging to a mild to a strong procedure. It usually takes 2 to 4 hours for facelift
surgery. The deep chemical peeling and laser treatment leaves you with Bruce, swelling and
discoloration face. Face aesthetics shows excellent results, however the recovery and
healing time takes 2 to 3 weeks.
For a better recovery you should know below skin care:

germs. It heals the area by soaking up the fluids and reduces the risk of dirt
collection. Do not touch the dressing and keep it dry and if you find it bleeding consult
your physician. You may have to take sponge baths in the early stages of wound
2. Hydrate- The skin has faced many cosmetic procedure and chemicals that will leave
you intact with the skin like Botox, filler, chemical peels etc. Drinking 8 to 10 glass of
waters every day will help your skin rejuvenate. Water will flush out the toxins from
your system. Avoid activity that will cause your incision bleed or damage to your skin.
3. Sun protection- SPF 30 or 40 is sufficient for protecting your skin from direct sun
rays. The healing scars exposed to sun will become darker and prominent. You need
to be extra cautious about sun protection it is best that you avoid the sun for first few
days after procedure.
4. Detergent-free- Skin becomes really red post-cosmetic procedure, to increase the
level of healing avoid touching your face and keep away from the soap that contains
detergent. Redness is normal use non soap cleansers and scent free moisturizing
cream to prevent your skin from pigmentation. Do not use sticky cream or lotions that
might cause itching and scab.
5. Mineral make up- When the skin is healed and open wounds are intact you can start
with makeup. Use make up which has mineral base and are gentle on your skin.
