Aging is a natural part of life, but aging gracefully sometimes requires the help of anti-aging treatments. There are several anti-aging strategies that can help to delay and lessen the severity of age-related skin concerns.
In-office anti-aging treatments, at-home anti-aging skincare and healthy lifestyle habits such as proper sun protection and a healthy diet all combine to form a three-pronged approach to a successful anti-aging regimen.
What Are Anti-Aging Treatments?
There are a number of anti-aging treatments that work in different ways to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, discoloration, thinning skin and other visible signs of aging.
Some of the most effective anti-aging treatments include:
- BOTOX® — An injectable neuromodulator that works by temporarily relaxing the muscle contractions that cause dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face.
- Facial fillers — Injectable anti-aging treatments work by restoring lost facial volume and filling in and smoothing lines, creases and wrinkles in the skin.
- BBL skin treatments — Broadband light (BBL) treatments help to stimulate collagen and reduce pigmentation and redness.
- Microneedling — A popular skin rejuvenation treatment that works by stimulating collagen and cell renewal to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture and more.
- PRP and PRF — An advanced anti-aging treatment that involves the use of PRP or PRF taken from your own blood to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
- Medical grade skincare — The basis of all anti-aging treatment plans, medical grade skincare is essential to keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy and youthful.

How Anti-Aging Treatments Work
The visible signs of aging on our skin, such as sagging, lines and wrinkles, discoloration and loss of firmness and texture, result from both intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
Intrinsic factors include genetics, hormonal changes and other factors that we cannot control. In contrast, extrinsic factors like sleep, smoking and UV exposure are lifestyle habits and behaviors that we can control. Although genetics is an important determination of skin structure and texture, sun exposure is the most common cause of wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of advanced skin aging.
Anti-aging treatments work in a variety of ways to combat both intrinsic and extrinsic factors and help restore your skin’s youthful tone, texture and appearance. For instance, some treatments work by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid within your skin. Others target and disable overactive melanocyte cells that produce too much skin pigment, causing dark spots and uneven skin tone.
The right anti-aging treatment for you will depend on your skin’s unique characteristics and needs, as well as your specific cosmetic goals.
Most anti-aging treatments reveal final results gradually over weeks or even months, though there are some treatment options that can offer visible results more quickly. All anti-aging treatments are best paired with the proper medical grade skincare routine for your skin type and healthy lifestyle habits such as wearing daily sunscreen, eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep.
