You Don't Have to Have Surgery to Look Younger

Bothered by fine lines, sagging skin, and dull skin? While surgeries like facelifts can help combat the physical signs of aging, it’s not your only option.

If the idea of surgery feels daunting or isn't the right fit for you, know that there are numerous nonsurgical alternatives to rejuvenate your look. That’s why Tarik Madni, MD and the team here in Southlake, Texas, include injectables and laser treatments as part of our suite of services.

Here’s a look at how you can look younger sans surgery.


Injectables typically fall into two categories: dermal fillers or neurotoxins. They contain different ingredients and combat different signs of aging, but you’re not limited to one or the other. Many people find that combining multiple types of injectables helps to create their own “liquid facelift.” 

You might consider: 

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injectables designed to restore volume (a common aging complaint!), smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They can address concerns such as fine lines, deep wrinkles, and sagging skin without the need for surgery.


Neurotoxin injections, including Botox ® and Dysport®, temporarily relax specific facial muscles, which reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. This nonsurgical solution is especially effective for lines around the eyes (crow's feet) and forehead lines.

Laser treatments

While lasers can accomplish many aesthetic goals 一 from hair removal to tattoo removal 一 they can also help turn back the hands of time. Laser treatments can help you look younger because they:

  • Gently warm the deep layers of your skin
  • Trigger new collagen and elastin production
  • Ablate (remove) dull, dead layers of skin
  • Tighten your skin

Different lasers target different aging concerns, so Dr. Madni offers several different types of laser treatments. For example, the MOXI Laser by Sciton® is a 1927 nanometer fractional laser designed to help reduce the initial signs of aging. It’s a quick 8-10 minute treatment that’ll leave your skin glowing.

On the other hand, the HALO® laser treatments by Sciton target fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and even years’ worth of sun damage. 

Healthy lifestyle choices

In addition to injectables and laser treatments, you can adopt several healthy lifestyle choices that help you appear more youthful. A balanced diet (rich in omega-3 fatty acids and other good-for-your-skin foods), regular exercise, hydration, and proper sleep contribute to a youthful appearance.  

Not only do these healthy habits help you appear more youthful, but they’ll also help provide more youthful energy too. Enough sleep paired with nutrient-dense foods can do wonders for your body!

A good skin care routine

A good skin care routine can go a long way in helping your skin appear supple and youthful. When you clean, moisturize, and apply sunscreen, you provide your skin with the necessary care to combat environmental stressors. 

Regular use of anti-aging ingredients like retinol and antioxidants can address fine lines and promote collagen production and contribute to a more youthful complexion. 

Looking for a glow? Be sure to exfoliate regularly. Dead skin cells are dull, and when you remove them, your skin has a chance to glow.

Choose the right haircut

Choosing the right haircut can be an age-defying decision. A hairstyle that compliments your facial features and works with your natural texture can instantly take years off your appearance. For example, layers, soft waves, or a well-executed bob can add movement and volume. 

Additionally, face-framing layers or bangs can draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones, and divert focus from any signs of aging. Consult with a skilled hairstylist who understands your unique features and preferences for a more youthful and vibrant aesthetic.
