While we’re in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and everyone is adjusting to the new normal, it is inevitable for some that cosmetic procedures may need to take a backseat or be postponed for the time being while we adhere to social distancing practices. Almost no industry or business is immune to the necessary adjustments to staying at home for everyone’s safety.
Although you may be unable to follow through with that facial procedure you’ve been saving up for at this time, we at The Lanfranchi Center want to make sure you’re keeping your skin healthy and glowing at home so it’s in the perfect shape for your surgery when the time comes. After all, skincare is a vital part of successful results and recovery when opting for facial rejuvenation.
Now more than ever is the perfect time to go au natural! Despite the occasional Zoom call or recording a viral TikTok video, take advantage of this opportunity to let your skin breathe. While we’re quarantined inside, we’re limiting out exposure to external airborne debris that can clog pores and affect our overall skin health.
Remain Loyal To Your Skincare Routine
Although we may not be doing our regular makeup routines and we’re no longer finding ourselves needing to remove makeup from our face at the end of the day, it is still important to stay loyal to your skincare regimen. It can give you a sense of control during quarantine and is also the perfect time to spot treat those dreaded breakouts.
Keep Your Skin Moisturized
While it has been the number one recommendation from the very beginning to be diligent in washing your hands, there is a crucial step that many tend to be overlooked: staying moisturized. If you do not rehydrate, you could ironically be putting yourself at higher risk by failing to prevent the kind of cracking and micro-tears in your skin that could potentially make you more susceptible to COVID-19. Frequently washing your hands can cause a loss of natural oils, known as sebum, that help maintains the skin’s healthy barrier which protects us from the outside world.
Keep A Healthy Diet
Staying home during this pandemic is undoubtedly a challenge for everyone and it’s no secret that the increased boredom and snacks right at our fingertips makes us want to pig out and indulge in an afternoon happy hour, or three. While we’ll never discourage enjoying those tasty snacks and cocktails during a time like this, it’s all about moderation. Keeping a proper diet rich in Vitamin C, zinc, and antioxidants can help lower stress levels, improve your sleep, and maintain a healthy immune system.
Get A Good Night’s Sleep
The Tiger King documentary and the usual Netflix binge has thrown everyone’s sleep schedule out of whack. But getting the right amount of sleep is essential now more than ever. Lack of sleep can weaken your immune system and increase inflammation, leaving you more susceptible to falling ill. Increased anxiety and stress from the world’s happenings can make falling asleep difficult, leading to a great deal of restlessness and sleepless nights. It’s important to create and maintain an evening routine to get your mind and body ready for a good night’s sleep, as it could make all the difference in staying happy and healthy during these uncertain, high-stress times.
About The Lanfranchi Center For Facial Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation (TLC)
With Dr. Lanfranchi and his team, better known as Team TLC, every stitch counts and there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to a cosmetic solution. This is why he developed the TLC Premier Lift-Facelift, which combines 3 to 6 custom anti-aging treatments that address all areas of the face. Dr. Lanfranchi does the Premier Face Lift in one single day under local anesthesia on the premises of The Lanfranchi Center.
“I am beyond thrilled with my results! In the area of facial rejuvenation, Dr. Lanfranchi’s expertise is unmatched. I recently moved to the Las Vegas area and was looking for a plastic surgeon who specialized in faces only, since I believe the face requires a very specific level of skill in order to rejuvenate without making the patient look “overdone”. Dr. Lanfranchi listened carefully to my goals and objectives and recommended the appropriate treatment to address my concerns. I had fractional laser done and my skin looks incredible! I look younger, my skin is smooth and firm and I absolutely LOVE my results. My recovery process was very easy with almost no discomfort. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, helpful, supportive and amazing every step of the way. I highly recommend Dr. Lanfranchi if you are considering any type of facial rejuvenation procedure. He is an expert in his field and delivers incredible results. I am so happy I found him!” *
