Advances in medicine, nutrition, and societal changes in general have enabled people to live longer, healthier and more productive lives. However, senescence, a progressive deterioration of body structure and function, is inevitable. Although it happens to all our organs, the visible skin changes, as the skin wrinkles, sags, thins, and becomes drier and less elastic, are those that mostly define our appearance and impact our psychosocial well- being. In contrast to the prevalent attitudes of only about 50 years ago, when elders were highly esteemed and deferred to with respect due to their life experience, today we witness a highly prevalent new form of discrimination – ageism. Modern society is obsessed with youth and beauty, leading to a whole new industry of products and procedures for delaying and/or reversing the signs of ageing. Our facial skin is one of the most visible indicators of age and health, but also of social status and wealth. More and more people report being unhappy with their appearance and resort to surgical and non-surgical anti-age treatments. Does a positive change in physical appearance lead to an improvement in psychological well- being, such as confidence, self-esteem, social functioning, and quality of life in general? It seems that in some cases, despite the objectively successful treatment outcome, patients remain dissatisfied. It might be the consequence of unrealistic expectations, but also of the patients' psychological characteristics. One of the important tasks for psychodermatology would therefore be to establish the predictors of good vs. poor psychological and psychosocial outcomes of anti-age treatments, develop screening techniques for candidates for cosmetic procedures, and devise a protocol for informing patients on the expected outcome, as well as on potential side effects and complications.
