Wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin give away our age, sometimes causing us to look and feel older than we really are. Around age 40, wrinkles may begin to appear on the skin as our bodies slow down the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Aggravating factors like smoking cigarettes contribute to wrinkles and worsen the signs of aging on the skin.

Spotting wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging can heavily impact an individual’s self-esteem, confidence, and other aspects of life. It can leave a person distraught and emotionally scarred. Luckily, cosmetic skin procedures performed at the local skin clinic work to restore damage-free, beautiful skin and help reverse the signs of aging. If you’re unhappy with the signs of aging, it is time to learn more about these great procedures.

The right cosmetic skin procedure can take 10, 20, or more years off the skin’s appearance and help restore self-confidence. Whilst dozens of anti-aging procedures currently are available, we’ve narrowed down this list to the top five procedures used today.

Consider one of the procedures listed here to reverse the signs of aging on your skin.


Everyone knows Botox injections work quickly and provide lasting results. Perhaps this is why Botox is the most popular cosmetic anti-aging procedure available today. Use Botox injections to eliminate fine lines and forehead wrinkles, crew’s feet, and mouth wrinkles with results lasting three to six months.

Botox injections work by freezing muscles in a specific area of the face where lines are prominent. It works especially well on forehead lines and crow’s feet. Results of Botox injections last three to six months, depending on the injection area and the number of Botox units received.

Botox is performed in-office in a matter of a few minutes. The minimally-invasive procedure is virtually pain-free when used in combination with a numbing agent, and only minimally uncomfortable without the agent.


Dermabrasion treats wrinkles, sun spots, and age spots using a special brush that removes the outer layer of the skin from the face. Some people refer to it as “sanding” the face. Once the damaged skin has been removed, new, healthy skin grows in its place.

After dermabrasion, you may need to take off work for a few days while the face heals. Expect some redness for a few weeks after the cosmetic skin procedure.

Dermabrasion procedures take about half an hour. The results of the procedure are immediate, although it can take several months to see the full benefits. The results of dermabrasion last several months to many years.

If you have deep scars or prominent signs of aging, correcting the issues may take several dermabrasion sessions. Correcting wrinkles and signs of aging in normal circumstances usually take one session only.


Microdermabrasion is similar to dermabrasion. The biggest difference is the tools used in the procedure. Microdermabrasion uses a special handheld device to spray tiny particles on the skin. The device is then rubbed over the face to remove the top layer of the skin.

The procedure is less abrasive than dermabrasion and takes less healing time. Patients see considerable cost savings when they choose microdermabrasion over dermabrasion procedures, making it a more viable option for anyone searching for affordable cosmetic skin procedures.

After microdermabrasion, expect some redness and swelling of the treatment area. This generally subsides within a week of the procedure. The results of a microdermabrasion procedure are instant and last several months.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel involves the use of a special acid chemical to remove the epidermis layer of the skin. With this layer of skin out of the way, collagen production increases and new, healthy skin regrows in its place. Every year, thousands of people depend on the results of chemical peels to maintain their youthful appearance.

Several different types of chemical peels can help reverse the signs of aging. AHA peels, BHA peels, and TCA peels are three of the most popular chemical peels, each bringing its own benefits and disadvantages. Our expert technicians can discuss the peel options with you to help choose the one best suited for your specific skin care needs.

Expect redness in the treated area for up to two weeks after the chemical peel. Ice packs can help ease discomfort and minimize swelling. The results of a chemical peel can last several months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers “fill-out” wrinkles and fine lines on facial skin using a special substance of your choosing. Options include collagen fillers and hyaluronic acid. After this procedure, expect a decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers work great on several different areas, including the face, hands, and lips.

Once you complete a dermal fillers treatment, expect to see noticeable results. One of the biggest and best benefits of this cosmetic skin procedure is the quick and long-lasting results it provides. You can expect to see results for several months.

Expect immediate results after the dermal filler procedure. Those results provide several months of more youthful-looking skin. Plus, this procedure takes about 30 minutes and there is no downtime.
