“The most effective anti-aging treatments for me are proper nutrition with a Mediterranean style diet as well as daily cardio and strength training. Also important are hydration, eight hours of sleep and protecting your skin from the elements.”

“A nonablative laser like Moxi, which treats more than one aging concern effectively without very much downtime. It also has an added benefit because it’s designed to ‘prejuvenate‘ the skin. It effectively eliminates signs of aging like hyperpigmentation by targeting pigment well within the skin’s barrier.”

—Houston plastic surgeon Courtney El-Zokm, MD

“I don’t know if what I do is called anti-aging, but I take fish oil, vitamin D, Zinc, coQ-10, and vitamin C every day. Also, I try to not consume too many carbohydrates in my diet. My breakfast usually consists of salmon and eggs. I use sunscreen, don’t smoke, or drink coffee, and I get at least eight hours of sleep every night. I also go to the gym several times per week.”

“I use an ascorbic acid-based brightening serum followed by a high-quality moisturizer like Biopelle Tensage Advanced Cream Moisturizer ($82) and a daily sunscreen each morning. I also use retinol before bed. In terms of treatments at the office, I get Dysport injections every four months and love the results in terms of smoothing areas out.”

“I must confess that I am a regular Botox Cosmetic user. I always joke around that they should put Botox in the water because it works so well at erasing wrinkles and preventing fine lines. Botox lasts about three months, so I do it regularly.”

Morpheus8 radio frequency microneedling. I love it for my lips and jawline, and also for making my décolletage nice and smooth for spring and summer clothes. After two treatments, I am a newborn. My topical is always the Iridesse Omega serum. Without question this duo gives me the fresh look I need.”

“I microneedle my face and neck every night, followed by retinol application. I also apply Retin-A every third day. It’s quick and easy and has improved my skin texture and tightness. I easily pass for a person 15 years younger than my chronological age.”

—Encino, CA plastic surgeon George Sanders, MD
