You are a perfect candidate for Botox and fillers. Your wrinkles are not very deep and with a 'baby' amount of Botox and fillers you should look refreshed. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Volumizing Fillers Combined With Muscle Relaxers Can Effect A True "Liquid Facelift"
The following simply represents one potential, individualized,comprehensive assessment based just upon the photo. Depending upon your specific desires and objectives, budget, etc, everything mentioned can be done at once, or only some aspects can be pursued, or the several treatments may be spaced over an extended period of time. Happilly, unlike with an aggressive surgical facelift, treatment does not have to be done in an "all or nothing" fashion.
Although your photo does not show you emoting, I would not be surprised to observe the appearance of sufficient "worry lines," "scowl lines," and crow's feet lines when you do emote to warrant treatment with a neuromodulator, such as Botox. This would likely contribute significantly to the refreshed look you desire. To turn back the hands of time, however, the following may be considered.
The Nonsurgical 3D Vectoring Facelift technique, using Radiesse Plus or Voluma XC (my choices in my Upper East Side Manhattan practice) could easily address the fairly pronounced, age-related volume loss (i.e. hollowing and sinking of the medial, lateral and mid-face regions of the cheeks) that is evident in the photo. This would also likely secondarily improve the nasolabial area without actual need for directly using fillers there. (In my Israel satellite facility, where a far greater number of regulatory agency approved volumizers are available, I would opt for Stylage XXL for and Emervel Volume for these indications.)
The tear troughs, bags, and dark circles under the eyes could then be addressed with the use of Belotero Balance (U.S.) and Teosyal Redensity II (Israel) and the thinning of the lips, particularly the upper could be easily remedied with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC (U.S.) and Princess Volume (Israel). .
If still deemed necessary and if so desired, the jowls along the jawline can be smoothed with Voluma XC (U.S.) and Emervel Volume (Israel). Without a profile shot, I cannot comment on whether there would be any need for a nonsurgical chin augmentation, which by itself, often helps to straighten, tighten and rejuvenate the length of the jawline.
And finally, if also desired, The Nonsurgical 3D Vectoring Necklift, combined with the use of a neuromodulator (my preference here being Botox for ropey cords) could be used to then harmonize the neck with the now rejuvenated face.
For more information on any of the above, you can check out the archives of RealSelf.com, and of course you would be wise to consult with a board certified aesthetic physician with experience and expertise in advanced injection techniques for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and augmentation and avoid the novice injectors whose experience and training may be limited to the simple treatment of smile lines with fillers and crow's feet with Botox. Be sure to ask to see his/her before and after photos.
I hope you find this helpful.
My very best wishes
