And you don't want to. A face without expression lines looks odd.
To avoid excessive aging do your best to love a balanced life, try to manage stress well, get enough rest, have a good diet, and always use sunblock.
A plastic surgery medical spa will have medical grade skin care products, lasers that can enhance youthful skin, Botox, dermal fillers and other non invasive or minimally invasive procedures that can keep one looking young and naturally beautiful.

Facial exercises should never be done to your skin. The muscles of the face are the only muscles in the body that are attached to the skin, so that when you "exercise" your facial muscles, you are actually dragging the skin around, causing further wrinkling and stretching.
If you want to look young, keep your face still and don't show any emotion -- but this would make life pretty dull!
I suggest that my patients take a proactive approach to the appearance of their skin from an early age. We should all be exfoliating and moisturizing our skin on a daily basis.
1) I recommend microdermabrasion treatment, or an Alpha Hydroxy acid (such as glycolic or lactic acid) to remove dead layers of the skin. Both are available over the counter. Interestingly men exfoliate their facial skin each day when they shave, so they have this advantage.

Botox treatment cannot only have a tremendous impact on today’s wrinkles, but it can also help prevent tomorrow’s wrinkles.
Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles that produce wrinkles. This can work to smooth lines today and to prevent lines from becoming permanently imprinted in the skin.
Strivectin, a cream that the manufacturer claims works as well as Botox in reducing wrinkles, is the most hyped up skincare product that I advise patients to avoid.
Collagen stimulating intense pulse sources, collagen stimulating lasers, and skin tightening radiofrequency technologies prevent wrinkling and aging skin laxity.
Volumetric fillers and Botox restore volume and diminish neuromuscular activity, diminishing the need for surgical procedures.
Preventing wrinkles always involves the use of sunscreen, every day, rain or shine. The UVA rays are most damaging to collagen, so make sure the sunscreen is broad spectrum and protects against these rays. Also avoid tanning salons as the UVA radiation from these lights are very aging over time. You may also want to use a collagen stimulating cream with retinol, growth factors or pentapeptides for firm healthy skin. Lastly, Botox or Dysport injections are helpful to prevent...
