by Truly Beauty

From retinoids to chemical peels, we’ve rounded up the best anti aging treatments you can try in 2023. Whether you’re dealing with fine lines, deep wrinkles, or dark spots (all common visible signs of aging), there are plenty of anti-aging treatments that can help.

None of us can escape the aging process. However, with an effective skincare routine in place and the help of in-office treatments, you can restore smoother, firmer skin—both on your face and the rest of your body.

So, if you’re wondering what is the most effective treatment for aging skin, read on. We’ve created a full list of skincare ingredients, procedures, and skin treatments for youthful, radiant skin.



What are the Best Anti Aging Treatments?

Some of the most popular anti aging treatments include retinoids, microdermabrasion, and laser to name a few. While dermal fillers and botox (Botulinum toxin) are an option, not everyone likes the idea of going under the needle. The good news is, you don’t have to. With so many effective anti aging treatments available, you can choose from serums to creams or in-office procedures to claim back your fresh, springy skin.



Best Anti Aging Treatments 2023

Here are the best treatments for combating signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sagging, and uneven skin texture.


Retinoids, derived from vitamin A, have long been the gold standard in anti-aging skincare. These compounds work by stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover, leading to smoother, firmer skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength tretinoin are popular options, though they may cause some initial skin irritation.

Retinol can treat everything from fine lines to wrinkles, clogged pores and age spots. It can even improve skin tone. Best of all, you’ll find it in a range of skincare products, especially serums, creams, and masks.

You’ll find retinol in Truly’s Vegan Collagen Booster Set, a 5-step anti-aging routine developed for both the face and body. It’s also formulated with other powerhouse anti aging ingredients such as vitamin C and plant collagen booster for even more line-softening, skin-tightening power.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin to remove dead skin cells and spur cellular turnover. This process can improve the appearance of fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and acne scars.

Chemical peels can also stimulate the production of new collagen in the skin. It does this by causing controlled injury to the skin's outer layers. When this happens, the body's natural healing process is triggered, and as part of that process, it increases collagen production. This collagen remodeling helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and promote a more youthful complexion over time.

There are different depths of peels available, from superficial to deep, depending on your skin concerns and tolerance. Make sure you find a professional and experienced dermatologist who can perform this procedure. Chemical peels usually don’t involve any downtime. While you may feel initial itchiness, any discomfort should subside within an hour.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin, keeping it soft and supple. While it’s usually found in serums and moisturizers designed to alleviate dry skin, hyaluronic acid has its own set of anti aging benefits.

Like retinol, hyaluronic acid can boost collagen production in the skin, in turn plumping out fine lines and wrinkles. Since it’s super gentle on the skin, hyaluronic acid is the best anti aging treatment for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a machine to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting collagen production. This treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines, large pores, and mild acne scars, leaving your skin looking refreshed.

The mechanical exfoliation of microdermabrasion triggers the body's wound-healing response, promoting the production of new collagen. This can help improve skin elasticity and firmness over time.

Another benefit of microdermabrasion is enhanced penetration of skincare products. By removing dead cell buildup, this anti aging treatment allows products to penetrate more deeply and effectively, maximizing their benefits.


Antioxidants like vitamin A, C, and E play a pivotal role in combating visible signs of aging. They function primarily by thwarting the damaging effects of free radicals, unstable molecules that wreak havoc on skin cells and collagen fibers. These free radicals are often caused by environmental factors such as UV radiation and pollution. 

Vitamin C, being a potent antioxidant, counteracts these free radicals and reduces their potential harm to the skin. Simultaneously, it stimulates the production of collagen, the protein responsible for skin's firmness and elasticity. It also brightens the skin and diminishes age spots, sun spots, and uneven pigmentation by inhibiting excess melanin production, leading to a more even skin tone.

Vitamin E can be equally as beneficial as an anti aging treatment by acting as a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals that cause skin damage. It moisturizes and strengthens the skin's barrier, promoting hydration and skin healing.

You’ll find vitamin E in Truly’s Glazed Donut Skin Set, as well as an abundance of other antioxidants. It features a facial serum and cream enriched with grapeseed oil, passion fruit, and vitamin E–all antioxidants that help improve the appearance of fine lines while preventing them from forming.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser therapy is one of the best anti aging treatments if you’re dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, or age spots. Specifically fractional laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, which effectively combat aging by stimulating collagen production.

Laser treatments create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, prompting the natural production of collagen and elastin. This results in improved skin elasticity and reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, lasers can target excess melanin, addressing issues like age spots, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation. 


Microneedling is another common anti-aging treatment you can try if you’re looking to treat signs of aging. The procedure involves puncturing the skin with small needles to increase skin cell renewal and stimulate wound healing response. When skin heals, collagen and elastin creation is initiated, giving skin a plumper, firmer appearance. 

This non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy has been proven to improve the overall look of skin. Under eye lines and discoloration are reduced with this anti aging treatment. Just be sure to speak to a licensed dermatologist to discuss the pros and cons of this procedure, and whether it’s right for you.
