Top techniques to rejuvenate your visage can help reveal the youthful spirit within.

At a certain point in one’s life, the likeness in the mirror may no longer resemble the countenance one wishes to see. If only Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray could have enlisted the expertise of modern physicians, his tale might have been one of courage and beauty instead of debauchery and cowardice. Then, as now, many of us desire that the face we show others reflects not our true age but how youthful we feel on the inside.

Cosmetic dermatologists and plastic surgeons offer a range of tools to help reverse the effects of time’s ever-ticking passage, but many patients are wary after seeing celebrities whose surgery outcomes are rather severe. “I always tell my patients that we are aiming for natural-looking results,” says Lisa Ishii, MHS, MD, facial plastic surgeon at Johns Hopkins Medicine. “If anyone [can tell that] you had a procedure, then I did a poor job.” H. Ray Jalian, MD, assistant clinical professor in the division of dermatology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA concurs: “I want patients to look like they had a good night’s sleep or went on a relaxing vacation.” Here Dr. Ishii, Dr. Jalian, and their colleagues at other top institutions reveal which cosmetic procedures they find themselves performing most and the new ones that are coming into vogue.
