5 ways to look flawless without going under the knife

At NOVA Plastic Surgery, one of our predominant messages to clients is to use a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation so you can always look and feel your best both now and in the long term.

Best of all, we encourage a non surgical approach because we know you can still look fantastic without going under the knife.

Use these 5 simple tips for healthier skin:

Drink plenty of water

Have you noticed how wilted a water thirsty plant looks on a hot dry day? And when you water the plant it soon peps up tall again? It’s no difference with your skin, especially the appearance of your facial skin.

Hydration is a key factor to a younger looking face.

Eat a healthy diet

What you eat directly influences the appearance of your skin. Even though it seems strange, our skin is the largest organ in our body. It needs nutrients, oxygen, and hydration in order to be healthy and retain our youthful beauty.

Eat plenty of vegetables for their vitamins, minerals, flavonoids and polyphenols. Eat healthy fats like olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds. Eat more fatty fish like salmon, sardines and tuna for their omega-3 fats. And reduce or eliminate sugar, refined, processed and packaged foods – these have all been linked to more rapid aging and ill health.

Use quality skin care creams

It’s worth investing in quality skin care creams, especially when it comes to your face. Quite simply, the quality brands have put more research into their products and they contain better ingredients. We have a range of quality products to choose from and you can always talk to us about what will suit your skin best.

Use sunscreen

The sun causes many of the visible signs of aging on your face. The UV radiation in the sun’s rays break down collagen and elastin, the proteins that give our skin firmness and elasticity, causing it to wrinkle and sag. The easiest way to stay protected is to use a daily moisturizer that contains an SPF already, so you don’t have to add steps to your morning routine. When you wash your face in the morning, dry it gently and then apply your SPF moisturizer.

Have regular scheduled non-surgical procedures

The key to sustaining and maintaining your beauty and reducing the effects of aging is to have regular, scheduled non invasive treatments. Make them routine as part of your lifestyle, just like you do healthy eating, drinking water, applying sunscreen and exercise.

For example, you might schedule a HydraFacial treatment biweekly or once per month, then have your botox injections every 3-6 months on a regular basis.

That way you’re combining the non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments into your long-term prevention strategy, sustaining and maintaining your natural beauty.
