Magazine ranks best anti-aging cities

A new study conducted by RealAge magazine has revealed which U.S. cities may actually make individuals seem older than their years.

The publication analyzed more than 27 million responses to its online health assessment since 1999 to determine which cities may help people stay young. Factors that were taken into consideration included health, exercise and sleep habits, stress levels and smoking.

The news source reports city most likely to prematurely age people is Knoxville, Tennessee. Others included the Greensboro, North Carolina area; Nashville, Tennessee; the Saginaw, Michigan area; Cincinnati, Ohio; Tampa, Florida; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Las Vegas, Nevada; Jacksonville, Florida and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Among the cities in which residents' "real age" is younger than their biological age include Salt Lake City, Utah; San Francisco, California; Austin, Texas; Denver, Colorado and Boston, Massachusetts.

While real age certainly applies to one's health, it can also affect their physical appearance. Many people, regardless of where they live, look much older than they actually are due to environmental factors and health awareness.

"There's a lot more stress here and pollution, but also I think there's a lot of good doctors that help enhance," a 25-year old Jacksonville, Florida, resident told WJXT-TV.

Many people who want to look as young as they feel turn to cosmetic plastic surgery for help. Surgical procedures such as facelifts and eyelid surgery can help turn back the hands of time. Non-surgical procedures such as Botox injections, Juvederm injections, chemical peels and microdermabrasion are also popular methods used by cosmetic surgeons to help patients reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone and restore a youthful appearance. These procedures are effective, inexpensive alternatives to more invasive procedures.

Anti-aging techniques begins with living a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise, a balanced diet and good skincare habits. Some choose to undergo surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve even better results. Speaking with a licensed, board-certified plastic surgeon can help patients decide which methods are ideal for their desired result.
