What Body Parts Will Reveal My Age First?

Facelift surgery in San Francisco

Before and After Facelift Surgery

Aging gracefully is acceptable for some people, but looking older than you are is a problem for many, but help is available!


With aging our skin thins and becomes less elastic resulting in wrinkles, lines, and age spots. Even if you have been diligent with moisturizers, using sunscreen, and avoiding cigarette smoking, some body parts are going to show aging before others.

The body parts that betray your age first are:

  • Face
  • Eyelids
  • Neck
  • Hands


Aging face before and after Facelift San Francisco

 Before and After Facelift Surgery

While freckles were cute for children, dark spots that appear as we age are not attractive. After a lifetime of sun exposure, age spots show up on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Age spots can be treated with prescription-strength retinol. For a faster treatment, Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. offers chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments. Dr. Delgado has the Palomar Icon, one of the most popular laser treatments for removing age spots.

For reducing wrinkles, the longest lasting is a full facelift. For patients not ready for surgery, injectable fillers offer a non-surgical, minimally invasive solution for filling creases, wrinkles, and lines. Dr. Delgado has the most popular fillers available for his patients including Sculptra, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero Balance, Bellafill, and of course Botox.


Before and After Blepharoplasty

 Before and After Eyelid Surgery

The muscles supporting the eyelids stretch and grow weaker as we get older. Fat may accumulate above and below the eyes. Patients need to stay hydrated, consume less salt, and get plenty of rest. However, eyelid surgery remains the most effective solution for aging eyes.


Neck lift in San Francisco

Before and After Neck Lift Surgery

The neck often looks older than the face because the skin is thinner. You can hide the neck with scarves or turtleneck shirts, or opt for neck lift surgery that will turn the clock back many years.


Radiesse for Hands in San Francisco

Before and After Radiesse

Always exposed to the elements, your hands may be the first to show aging. We start to lose volume on the backs of the hands as we get older, with the loss of volume, the tendons and veins become more prominent. Radiesse has proven to be a great filler to plump up the hands and treatment with the Palomar Icon to remove age spots will return your hands to a youthful look.
