Are you noticing pronounced wrinkles, lines and creases? Maybe loose skin or age spots are bothering you. Whatever your skin concerns are, the good news is that there are both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options that can help you look and feel your best at any stage of life.
These are just some of the most popular anti-aging cosmetic procedures to help you achieve a smoother, more youthful look.

1. Facelift

If deep creases, loose skin and sagging jowls are cosmetic concerns for you, you could be a good candidate for a facelift. This procedure addresses common signs of aging in the mid to lower portions of your face, including laugh lines, wrinkles and sagging skin in the cheek and jowl area. It’s ideal for men and women who want to achieve a younger appearance and for whom nonsurgical options such as injectables and laser treatments are no longer able to give them the dramatic results they’re looking for.

Most people take around 2 weeks off work and other activities after a facelift to recover. Over the next weeks and months, you should see gradual improvements in your appearance, with your full results developing over the next 12 months.

Facelift results can be long-lasting, and healthy lifestyle habits such as staying out of the sun and eating a healthy, balanced diet can help to prolong them.

2. Eyelid Surgery

For many people, the appearance of drooping eyelids and eye-area wrinkles can make them look years older than they really are. If this is the case for you, eyelid surgery — also known as blepharoplasty — could be an effective solution.

During eyelid surgery, your plastic surgeon is able to remove and reposition sagging eyelid tissue to create a smooth, younger-looking appearance and eliminate any vision impairment issues caused by severe eyelid drooping.

Plan to take around 1 to 2 weeks off work after your eyelid surgery. You should start to see your final results around the 4- to 6-month mark.

Some people choose to include eyelid surgery or a brow lift with their facelift for more comprehensive results.

3. Injectables

Injectable wrinkle treatments like BOTOX® and dermal fillers are some of the most popular anti-aging cosmetic treatments available. These can be appropriate for anyone looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume in the face or lips.

The most common cosmetic use for BOTOX is to treat lines and wrinkles in the forehead area, as well as crow’s feet and 11 lines in between the eyebrows. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth away mid-face wrinkles such as laugh lines and bar code lines, as well as restore lost volume in your cheeks and lips.

These injectable treatments are nonsurgical anti-aging solutions and do not require any downtime afterward, so you can get back to work or your other daily activities right after your appointment.

4. Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is another popular nonsurgical anti-aging option. These treatments are able to address a range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, uneven skin tone and texture and acne scars.

Most people see optimal results after a single treatment session, although this can depend on the type of laser that is used for your treatment. Your plastic surgeon can work with you to determine the best treatment timeline for your specific needs.
