The best treatment will depend on your specific concerns. The most common anti-aging treatments fall into a few main buckets: facials, injectables and fillers, laser treatments, and different topical products.


Facials: Currently, two of the best facials for anti-aging are platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and microneedling. In a microneedling facial, tiny needles penetrate the skin to boost collagen production. The process can be paired with PRP therapy using your own blood — hence its nickname, the “vampire facial.”


Injectables and Fillers: A wide variety of wrinkle treatments are used for different concerns — injectables such as Botox or Dysport are excellent options for fine lines and wrinkles, while other fillers are great for mitigating deep creases or facial volume loss. They are all minimally invasive and have different uses, costs and recovery times.


Topical Products: When it comes to moisturizers, using them daily and making sure they have a couple key ingredients can maximize their effectiveness.


“The best moisturizers are those that contain hyaluronic acid, which works by pulling water into the skin and those that contain ceramides that help to form a healthy skin barrier and maintain moisture,” explains Ryan Leach.


In general, medical grade anti-aging products that are distributed only through dermatology or plastic surgery offices are going to be more effective than run-of-the-mill products you might order online or find in the store.


PRO TIP: Always use sunscreen and remember to apply your moisturizers after using products with active ingredients such as tretinoin!
