* The Lazarus Pits used by ComicBook/RasAlGhul rejuvenate him every century or so. Various adaptations depict the process as having diminishing returns, putting more pressure on him to find a "worthy heir" before it stops working and / or he goes totally feral.

* In ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'', this is one of the applications of the Empire's BioAugmentation technology. The ruling family keeps it mostly for itself. A character suspects they do this because too many people with access to this treatment may cause the ImmortalProcreationClause to kick in and it may not make everyone happy.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Aging has been slowed down quite a bit after most diseases have been eradicated and anti-aging drugs and skin grafting have become more advanced. Judge Dredd for instance is chronologically in his 70s, but still looks like a 40-something.

* Longevity treatments exist in the ''MutantChronicles'' setting, but between the astronomic expense, the invasive surgery and the extremely strict regimen of diet and exercise required for the treatment to be effective, very few people bother.

* The Betans of the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' allegedly have one, which people assume is the reason that Admiral Naismith commands a mercenary fleet while appearing to be in his early twenties. In truth, there is no such treatment, and Admiral Naismith really is in his early twenties. The Jacksonians have a highly unethical treatment in which the brain of a wealthy client is transferred into the body of a younger clone. Mark Vorkosigan has made it his life's work to eliminate that practice, and as of the chronologically latest book was about to begin testing of a treatment that could potentially revert someone from 'old' to 'middle aged'.
