Wondering if now is the right time to look into a facelift? Here at our San Francisco Bay Area practice, board-certified facial plastic surgeons Dr. David Lieberman and Dr. Sachin Parikh help people of all ages look and feel like their most youthful and vibrant selves. A facelift is often a part of that, but there are also quite a few treatments available for treating different phases of aging with minimized downtime.

While the treatment approach is different for everyone, the goal is always the same: helping you look and feel your very best. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the best anti-aging treatments for every stage of the aging process.

Early Signs of Aging

Many people start to notice signs of aging in their 30s and early 40s, including mild loss of volume, faint wrinkles, and photodamage. However, we also see people in their 20s who are taking a preventative approach to anti-aging.

Best Treatments

  • Chemical peels: Carefully formulated solutions peel away layers of damaged skin cells to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath.
  • Dermal fillers: Injectable dermal fillers add volume in specific areas to smooth indentations or enhance contours.
  • BOTOX® and Dysport®: These injectable neurotoxins relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet.
  • Forever Young BBL™: Reverse sun damage and rejuvenate your skin with this gentle light-based treatment.

Moderate Signs of Aging

Treating signs of aging starts to become a priority for many people when they reach their late 40s and early 50s. It’s typical to experience a noticeable loss of volume, deeper wrinkles, and increasing skin laxity.

Best Treatments

  • Nonsurgical facelift: This multifaceted nonsurgical approach combines injectables, Ultherapy®FaceTite, and laser skin resurfacing as needed to address multiple signs of aging at once.
  • Morpheus8 RF microneedling: The combined benefits of dermal remodeling and collagen induction therapy give your skin and tissues a tightening lift.
  • Deep plane facelift: In some cases, you may be ready for surgery at this stage. If your signs of aging are not severe, your doctors may recommend a mini facelift (also called a lower facelift and neck lift) to give you results with less downtime than a full deep plane facelift. Learn all about the mini facelift in this blog post.
