What’s the Best Age for a Facelift?

What’s the Best Age for a Facelift?

At Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, we’re often asked at what age should you get a facelift. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t so simple. There are several factors that weigh in, like the type of skin you have, how well you’ve nurtured it throughout your life, and genetics.

Dr. Mirabile, Dr. Hsu, and our team have the expertise and experience to assess your skin, offer you guidance on facelifts, and perform them when you’re ready.

Here’s what you should know.

Factors that can age your skin

Let’s first talk about your genes. No matter how much sunscreen you apply throughout your lifetime, your genes can mean your skin is predisposed to aging early. You can typically look at your parents or older relatives to gain an assessment of what your skin might look like in years to come.

Your skin is also susceptible to damage when exposed to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. When you spend a lot of time lounging by the pool or hanging out at the beach, the sun can play a big role in damaging your skin and causing you to look older than you are.

Your climate can also affect the condition of your skin, which can cause signs of aging.

When you combine these forces you’re up against, you might notice that your face and neck are first to show signs of aging because of their exposure to the elements. But, you don’t have to be discouraged.

We offer a number of nonsurgical facial procedures that can give your skin and neck a fresh appearance, such as Botox® and fillers, Kybella®, and Ultherapy®

These solutions can go a long way toward helping you look more youthful, but none of them provide the dramatic, long-term results that a facelift does.

Deciding when it’s time for a facelift

It’s possible to be 40 and notice that your skin has premature aging when compared to your friends in their 50s. No two cases are the same. If you weren’t blessed with great genes and a lifetime of proper skin protection, a facelift might be right for you in your late 40s or early 50s. However, you might wait until you’re in your 60s before deciding it’s time.

Rest assured that a good facelift takes years off your age by changing the tightness and appearance of your skin. You can then carry these results for many years to come. After your facelift, your skin continues to age, but you can enjoy your reset button on aging.

Your options

Once you decide you’re ready for a facelift, our team offers different options. You might choose to benefit from earlier intervention on a lesser scale. We offer the mini-facelift procedure, which involves less recovery time. 

We also provide a host of facial procedures targeted to specific areas like your:

No matter what improvements you want to make to your face and neck, we are fully equipped and have the knowledge to make recommendations and perform the procedure you choose.

If you’re ready to gain the upper hand on aging, contact us at our practice by phone, or book your appointment online. You can also send us a message before your visit if you have questions.
