Finding the best anti-aging system for you requires considering your goals, your budget and your limits. For example, some people may be open to going to a wellness spa for microdermabrasion, while others draw the line before that. Anti-aging therapy can be as simple as a three-step daily regimen of skin creams or as involved as regular Botox® treatments. Each person has a different comfort level and different limits on the amount of time, money and effort he or she is willing to invest in achieving younger-looking skin.

Wellness salons offer a suite of anti-aging treatments including chemical peels and microdermabrasion techniques that remove topical, dead layers of the skin.

The first step toward choosing the best anti-aging system is to learn about all of the anti-aging systems out there. Cosmetic products include but are not limited to lotions, creams and sprays. Depending on your budget, you may find these in the makeup section of your local pharmacy or retailer, the cosmetics section of department stores, your dermatologist, or a wellness salon that offers skincare services.

Wellness salons offer a suite of anti-aging system treatments that go beyond facial applications. These include chemical peels and microdermabrasion techniques that remove topical, dead layers of the skin. Botox®, another option, involves injections that temporary fill in lines and wrinkles. Carefully research these centers before going through their doors for treatment. Ensure that they are properly licensed to perform the treatments that they advertise.

Once you have a general idea of what you want your anti-aging system to be, it's time to determine a budget and research systems that fit into your budget. The idea is to aim for tried-and-true procedures and products, not magic solutions that promise you the world at outlandish prices. Ask around to see what others are doing, consult your doctor, and read product reviews before plunging in.

Research the return, refund, and warranty policies on your anti-aging system before you make a commitment. Patients often expect dramatic results that may require multiple visits or simply won't ever live up to promises. If you don't read the fine print, you may end up paying a lot for a product that doesn't change your appearance at all.

At the same time, store- and clinic-purchased anti-aging systems can only go so far. If a person wants to truly adopt an effective anti-aging system, he or she must properly hydrate and practice proper nutrition and exercise. Drinking at lease eight glasses of water a day is an effective method of contributing to younger- and healthier-looking skin. Again, consult your doctor on the best ways to do so, given your specific situation.
