Our daily lifestyle choices can significantly impact the health and appearance of our skin. Poor decisions can accelerate skin aging, making us look older than we are. Understanding these factors and making healthier choices can help maintain youthful, glowing skin. Here’s how your lifestyle might be aging your skin and what you can do about it.

1. Smoking

Smoking releases harmful chemicals that damage collagen and elastin, the building blocks of skin strength and elasticity. It delays wound healing and causes oxidative stress, leading to premature aging signs such as “smokers’ lines,” increased pigmentation, and visible veins.

What to Do: Quitting smoking is the best step. Use nicotine patches or seek professional help if needed. Your skin will start to recover, regaining its natural color and elasticity over time.

2. Poor Diet

A poor diet lacking essential nutrients can lead to skin problems. Diets low in proteins and oils (like omega-3) reduce collagen and elastin production, causing sagging skin. Sugary and high-fat foods can cause blemishes and worsen acne, while vitamin deficiencies can lead to dry, unhealthy skin.

What to Do: Opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Incorporate foods high in vitamins A, C, E, and D to boost skin health. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

3. Poor-Quality Sleep

Inadequate sleep affects cellular repair and regeneration, leading to dull, dehydrated skin. Poor sleep can also cause redness, breakouts, and dark circles under the eyes due to dilated blood vessels.

What to Do: Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. Establish a relaxing bedtime routine, reduce screen time before bed, and create a comfortable sleep environment to improve sleep quality.

4. Stress and Anxiety

Stress triggers hormonal imbalances, releasing cortisol and adrenaline, which affect skin oil production. This can lead to clogged pores, acne, and increased inflammation, worsening conditions like psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema.

What to Do: Practice stress-management techniques such as yoga, meditation, or regular exercise. Taking time for hobbies and ensuring a work-life balance can also help reduce stress levels.

5. Sedentary Lifestyle

Lack of exercise can lead to poor skin health. Regular exercise promotes healthy blood circulation, delivering more oxygen and nutrients to the skin, which supports cellular repair and regeneration.

What to Do: Incorporate regular physical activity into your routine. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. Activities like walking, cycling, or yoga can significantly benefit your skin and overall health.

6. Sun Exposure

Excessive sun exposure causes oxidative stress and releases free radicals, leading to pigmentation, freckles, and premature aging. It damages collagen and elastin, causing wrinkles and sagging skin, and increases the risk of skin cancer.

What to Do: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by wearing sunscreen with SPF 60+, seeking shade, and wearing protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses. Reapply sunscreen every two hours when outdoors.

Beauty trends are constantly changing but one thing that has remained constant is the struggle for youthful skin and a sculpted body. So, various skin treatments and body procedures have made their way into the beauty market. 2023 is the year that has expanded and destigmatized the use of aesthetic treatments and their undeniably essential results. This blog will discuss the versatile aesthetic trends and procedures that ensure effective, quick, and hassle-free results!

1. Semi-permanent makeup

If you have acne, hyperpigmentation, or just really pimple-prone skin, you probably adore foundation and possibly never head out of the house with at least some basic minimum coverage. If so, you are going to love this new trend of combining the micro-needling technique with semi-permanent BB treatment and Cutera’s BB Glow facial is just for you. The best thing about this treatment is that its makeup but it’s also basically your face for the next six months or so. It won’t come off when you wash your face or clump around your eyes as the day proceeds. Just beautiful smooth, blemish-free skin from dusk till dawn! 

2. Fillers for Fuller Jawlines

Dermal fillers are commonly used for those individuals experiencing sunken facial features and fine lines. This dermal filler acts as a scaffold. Once injected, our specialist will smooth it out by pressing it on the skin. Collagen and subdermal tissue attach to the particles, resulting in a fuller, evenly textured appearance and restored facial volume. Over time, the facial skin loses volume, causing certain facial features to appear sunken or hollow. Fillers add volume to the facial features and deliver moisture to the skin, which in turn causes the face to appear fuller and more youthful. Depending on the specific product, fillers can be used to create fuller jawlines and correct sunken cheeks and hollow eyes.

Netflix show, Selling Sunsets’ star Christine Quin was asked about what tips she would like to share for anti-aging, to which Quin exclaims: “unfortunately you can’t do anything about aging but thank God for fillers and Botox!” 

 3. Preventative Botox

Our 30s are usually the time that is critical in setting our future in terms of physical beauty. The more we invest in anti-aging procedures, the more benefit we will get in the long run. This is mostly correct or at least it was, until recently. The new ideology suggests that it’s easier to prevent wrinkles from occurring rather than getting rid of existing ones. As a result, the term preventative botox suggests getting botox injections in your twenties so as to delay getting wrinkles for as long as possible.

As we age, we lose collagen present in the skin, and our skin cells also inhibit their collagen production, which causes skin issues and aging signs. This process begins slowly and becomes visible when we are around 30 and accelerates in our 40s, leading to noticeably aging skin (wrinkles, creases, and skin folds). Starting Botox treatments early on may help slow down this process, allowing you to enjoy a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance for longer than you would have otherwise. 

Hollywood’s darling and show “Friends” actor Jennifer Anniston in an interview claimed: “Two things are inevitable. The first: is aging. The second, there’s always going to be critics.” It should only be a question of how you’re taking care of yourself mentally and physically.

4. Non-invasive Body Contouring 

You may have heard of fat surgery. But the idea of dealing with painful recovery times has been a prominent obstacle for most of us whenever we consider this fat reduction treatment. But with non-surgical body contouring procedures such as cool sculpting & Ultrashape, there is no need for fat removal surgery. We can get body fat removal when we freeze fat cells with cryotherapy or melt them away with Ultrasonic cavitation therapy. These treatments can also help with stubborn localized fat like bingo wings, bra fat, tummy fat, or any area that’s resistant to exercise and diet. 

These aesthetic procedures can help you look young and fit and lead to an attractive future self. So consider these aesthetic treatments and let your future self thank you! Cutera Aesthetics is a reputable anti-aging clinic that has managed to gain a fair share of credibility in the aesthetic world. Contact us today for a free consultation. 


Covid brought a boom to the beauty industry. Yep, you read that right. It was a ZoomBoom to be exact but it was a boom nonetheless. In a survey, dermatologists reported seeing more patients coming in for Radio-frequency (RF) treatments than usual because patients were now more focused on their skin quality, texture, and other imperfections since they observed themselves closely during their zoom meetings every day. And radiofrequency is a versatile treatment that caters to a number of aesthetic issues that people face. More effective than topical anti aging creams and serums.

So what is the RF treatment 

Radiofrequency treatments deliver heat energy and controlled injury to the deeper layers of the skin triggering collagen production. Collagen is the golden protein found in tissue cells, that promotes wound healing and new cell growth. This leads to tighter face skin that mimics a face lift and appears noticeably younger and fresh. It must be kept in mind that Radiotherapy only fixes mild skin sagging. If the skin has sagged too much, HIFU treatment or surgery will be required to lift it back in shape. Because even though it is a cosmetic procedure, it goes about a much more natural route than the traditional surgical facelift and botox muscle manipulation. 

How does it help the ZoomBoom patients?

The first thing that rf treatment does is slow down the decline of collagen in the body. Collagen is responsible for youthful skin, and healthy joints, it also prevents bone loss and helps maintain heart and muscle health. However, the body loses one percent of its collagen reserves annually which means aging skin. So preserving collagen essentially translates to preserving youthfulness. This means that timely Rf treatments may save you from going under the knife at all. Fractional Radio frequency is used to tighten face skin, and to repair wrinkles, pigmentation, and sagging skin.

This same heat is used by dermatologists administering the RF Thermage treatment for contouring the body and face by targeting the unwanted fat cells and destroying them with heat, so they can be dispelled by the body’s immune system.

RF when combined with microneedling may also help you treat your acne scars and stretchmarks. RF and micro needling both use heat to encourage wound healing. How deep to go under the skin is determined by the doctor according to the patient’s age and how much damage needs to be reversed. After the age of 40, the needle may prick about 3mm under the skin to deliver injury. While younger skin may only need to be penetrated by 0.5 mm.  

When should you get it?

RF works best on men and women showing early signs of aging. Because collagen and elastin production falls over time with sun exposure and age. Thus, it is not advisable to wait too long for this procedure. This is why most dermatologists recommend their patients get the RF treatment soon after they turn 30 to ensure the reproduction of collagen is triggered before the fine lines deepen into creases. It is more effective than any anti aging serum And since it’s a natural treatment you will see your skin tightening slowly, but surely over 5-7 months after being treated. The results are usually expected to last up to a good year.

Why chose Radiotherapy over other surgical options

The RF treatment is preferred by many dermatologists and clients alike because it spurs the body’s own natural healing to remove scarring, wrinkles, and skin sagging. This saves you from getting surgery which is more expensive and has a higher downtime. Also, RF is an FDA-approved technique that has been declared safe for skin healing and tightening. The healing process of Radio Frequency is from within the skin and a short downtime of about 48 hours is required after the procedure for the skin to heal.

In most cases, there are no side effects to Radiotherapy. You might experience some temporary breakouts or subdermal trauma. This too can be completely avoided if your doctor is gentle and careful with the device. So, if you have sensitive skin or any condition like rosacea, you must choose an experienced and professional dermatologist. Get your skin checked before treatment because effects vary from area to area and skin to skin. 

Opt for a good caretaker for your skin.

The interesting thing about beauty is that it is always changing, and always in flux. Trends come and go. So, If you want to change the way you’re aging or even change the way you look, it is up to you. And injectable dermal fillers can help you achieve the change you want- higher cheekbones, fuller lips, or getting rid of fine lines. You want it, you got it! 

What are fillers?

Fillers are jelly-like proteins that are injected under the skin to address various skin concerns. These include smoothing out frown lines, gaunt hands, and lifting the cheeks and corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers have been around for more than a decade and are more common than we realize. They are often injected into the skin to volumize and lift features. Most fillers ( about 99.9%) are made with Hyaluronic acid. This is because HA is reversible if the amount injected needs adjustment. As soon as hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it immediately begins to collect water in that region. HA can bind water many times its weight

Why get fillers

There will always be a certain percentage of clientele that will ask for bold, doll-like enhancements to their cheekbones, brows, and lips. But the majority these days swings towards more natural-looking features that appear just a bit more noticeable and flattering.


The puckered-up lips will perhaps always remain an oft-requested filler look. However, a large portion of lip filler clients are actually looking to solve a problem: thin, chapped, and dehydrated lips. Due to its amazing water-binding ability, Hyaluronic acid lip filler is the perfect solution. It plumps out thin lips without giving them an unnatural look, while also simultaneously keeping the lips hydrated and soft.


 As we age our faces don’t sag flat downwards but rather in an inverted triangle formation. So the cheeks can be lifted to restore a semblance of the former face. Some people want a contoured look. Fillers in the cheekbones can help achieve his look. However, you must keep in mind that when you touch up one area on your face, you have to make minor alterations to other areas as well. E.g filling out the cheeks but not the temples will give an unnatural look as the temples will appear more gaunt in comparison.


Nose fillers work a little like nose contour- just quite a bit longer-lasting. You fill out the areas where you feel your nose is going a bit crooked. And just like that, you’ve saved yourself the cost of a painful rhinoplasty which would also likely come with some downtime as well.

Forehead and Under-eyes

Injecting fillers into the forehead can reduce frown lines. This fills out the sagging skin for a tighter, smoother appearance. Many people complain of under-eye hollows making them look tired and gaunt. You can fix this by getting a small filler dose near the nose-cheek junction. 


Benefits of dermal fillers include not having to wait for results which are also almost immediately visible. The downtime of fillers is low. You can expect to see your desired results within the week of treatment. Along with that, you get a long-lasting treatment usually well over a year before you need a touchup. Fillers are also ideal for an instant confidence boost!

Investing in an experienced technician.

It is imperative you get this procedure conducted by an experienced and professional dermatologist and nowhere except at a clinic. Always get reviews before picking a dermatologist. Never be shy to ask them about how much experience they’ve had with fillers. If they deal with multiple patients every day, that’s a good sign.

Risks and downsides to dermal fillers

Fillers run a very rare risk of vascular occlusion. Where the caregiver accidentally injects into a blood vessel. If this ever happens, an enzyme hyaluronidase can be injected which neutralizes the hyaluronic acid. Fortunately, this occurrence is extremely rare It can be avoided altogether by getting treated by a professional dermatologist who knows to inject very small amounts and pull back every time to ensure they haven’t punctured a blood vessel. So never try doing fillers by yourself at home.

Opt for a good caretaker for your skin.

Personally, I’ve always enjoyed my experience at Cutera Aesthetics. They have fully qualified trained professionals with exemplary repute and experience preceding them. The staff doesn’t just perform a service. Instead, they understand that it is their responsibility as caregivers to ensure that each customer enjoys their experience and is happy with the results. The filler treatment at Cutera is a trusted one and their first consultation is free!                                    

There are some usual and traditionally known aging signs that we are all on the lookout for. These include frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and under-eye swelling. But there are some more delicate signs of aging that we may miss. And if these appear before a certain age they may be symptoms of more problematic issues. 

Skeletal-looking hands. 

Muscle or tissue loss can lead to an individual’s hands looking gaunt. The process is really slow so unless carefully observed a person may not even be aware of losing mass from their hands or face. One of the simplest measures of rectifying this issue is using topical hyaluronic acid because tissue loss occurs when the production of natural hyaluronic acid in the body dwindles. Hyaluronic acid can absorb more than five hundred times its weight in water so it can greatly help rejuvenate muscle and restore skin thickness.


One of the first unusual signs of aging is sunspots. Well, these aren’t really unusual since people have them quite often. What is unusual is if you start seeing them before your thirties. What really are sunspots anyway? Sunspots are flat brown areas on your skin that appear when you spend a lot of time in the sun. They basically show how much the sun has damaged the skin so naturally, they affect fair-skinned people more than their darker counterparts. The most common way to deal with sunspots is through chemical peels since they burn away the outermost sun-stained layer of skin. The glycolic peel is the most favored. Some also use cryotherapy (freezing of the stained skin) and dermabrasions (sloughing outer skin off) to treat these spots along with the glycolic acid peel.

Your eyes change shape

As you age your bones start moving inward. This change is most noticeable at the corners of your eyes. Meaning you’ll notice them looking more horizontal than their usual rounded shape.   

One possible way to reduce this damage is by using eye creams regularly and start taking vitamin C orally as well as applying it topically on a regular basis. Vitamin C triggers collagen production which can provide additional support to sagging skin and bones. This symptom is common enough in middle-aged people. Many of them get the thread lift to correct their eye shape. But if you are seeing these signs in your twenties or even early thirties, it is best to get a checkup to determine bone health as it may be symptomatic of osteoporosis.

Your skin is Itchy 

Your skin gradually loses its ability to retain moisture as it ages. Pores widen and skin becomes thin and wrinkled. Dehydrated skin is often itchy and can turn flakey. Try keeping your skin hydrated as often as you can. Regular hydra facials after the age of 30 can help keep your skin plump and moisturized. Applying petroleum jelly after moisturizer is a good way of keeping moisture locked in the skin while you sleep.  It ensures you don’t suffer from nighttime moisture loss      

Sage advice

In the end, it does well to remember that you can age with grace or choose to delay getting older for a while. Such is the miracle of science and technology today. But there is decidedly no shame in either. It’s only a matter of personal choice. Good cheekbones and a sharp jawline can all be achieved with thread lift and hifu treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles can be dealt with radiofrequency skin tightening. If you take care of these aging signs, as shown above, you can maintain the good health of your skin for a long time. Especially if you…

A thread lift, otherwise known as a lunchtime facelift, is a faster, cheaper, and minimally invasive alternative to the traditional facelift. Both procedures have one underlying goal: facial rejuvenation.  A traditional facelift surgically removes loose facial skin. In contrast, a thread lift uses special facial threads to pull and tighten face skin and sagging skin to give you a more youthful appearance.

Both procedures aim for the same goal: face skin tightening. But, the results from a thread lift do not last as long as those from facelift surgery. A traditional facelift treatment can last up to ten years, whereas a thread lift can up to one year. A thread lift is also cheaper and more convenient for most patients.

What Is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses temporary sutures to tighten face skin. Instead of surgically removing loose facial skin, the cosmetic surgeon simply repositions the loose skin by anchoring it with the barbs on the thread. This, in turn, slightly pulls back the skin and tightens the face.

Aside from lifting the skin, threads support aging skin by stimulating the body’s healing response and provoking the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is crucial because of collagen’s vital role in the aging process.

Thread lifts target areas of the face and neck, such as jowls, jawline, under-eye area, drooping cheeks, and sagging eyebrows. They do not eliminate superficial signs of aging skin, such as fine lines, age spots, or uneven pigmentation, however, they are more effective in tightening face skin than topical anti aging creams and serums.

How Long Does a Thread Face Lift Last?

If you are okay with having a facelift whose results can last up to one year, you should consider getting a thread lift treatment. At Cutera Aesthetics, we offer the most robust PDO facial threads on the market, giving your face a naturally defined and youthful appearance. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

How Painful Is a Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift procedure is usually painless; however, some patients may experience swelling, soreness, or redness. Because thread lift procedures are minimally invasive, most patients return to normal activities immediately.  

How Long Does It Take To Recover From a Thread Lift?

One of the most significant advantages of having a PDO facial thread lift procedure is the significantly reduced recovery time. When you have facelift surgery, you may be heavily sedated. You will need someone to drive you home from the hospital. You may also need round-the-clock assistance from a caregiver for a few days after the surgery, childcare aid if you have children, and you may take a week or two off work to heal completely.

On the other hand, recovery from a PDO thread lift is relatively easy. Thread lifts can be performed under local anesthesia, making it easy for thread lift patients to drive home and take care of themselves after the procedure. You may experience swelling or soreness for a few days after the threading face lift treatment, but most patients can return to work afterward.

 Thread lift recovery is not intensive; however, you must take minor precautions while healing. You must avoid rubbing your face while moisturizing or cleansing it for at least one week after the procedure. It would help to elevate your head. And do not roll over onto your face while sleeping.

PDO threading face lifts are low risk, meaning there is a low risk of bleeding, severe bruising, or scarring. Despite this, you should maintain realistic expectations. Because this procedure will only lift your face by a few millimeters, creating a subtle and natural-looking lift.  

Who Is the Ideal Thread Lift Candidate?

Individuals in their late thirties or early fifties who want to reverse early signs of aging are perfect candidates for PDO thread lifts. Individuals over fifty-five years usually benefit more from facelift surgery. Thread lifts are the perfect alternative for patients who cannot have facial surgery for medical reasons. If you have any particular health conditions and are interested in this procedure. Please ensure that you consult your primary care physician on whether or not a thread lift is right for you.

Who is the Right Medical Practioner for Thread Lifts?

A dermatologist can perform a thread lift. Dermatologists deal with the appearance of drooping cheeks, jowls, or other skin laxity. In a lunchtime facelift, a thin suture is inserted into the skin of the area that you want to be lifted and pulled tight. The sutures dissolve after some time, but the effects of the lift last up to one year. This procedure encourages collagen production in the affected area. Collagen helps the skin maintain its strength.

Aging signs are a huge aesthetic obstacle that occurs in the life of men and women. The gradual and continuous aging process wears down our skin in the long run and fades our physical attractiveness. Today, skin treatments and aesthetic procedures like Botox have made it possible to slow down the aging process and the appearance of aging skin. A skin treatment holding cosmetic and medical benefits, Botox is gaining immense popularity in the market as a preventative measure for wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, smile lines, droopy eyelids, sagging skin, and creases that make us appear tired, dull, and unappealing. By limiting muscle activity, this injectable cosmetic skin treatment reduces the chances of early aging and may altogether remove the need to get surgical face lift treatment.


The Possibility to Restore Your Youthfulness with Botox 


Looking youthful is everyone’s desire, and we do everything to stretch out our younger phase of life. This new advancement in the aesthetic world has taken the market by storm and continues to amaze everyone with its effectiveness and worthwhile results. As a preventative treatment, more young people are considering it to reduce the appearance of possible aging signs. 


This facial cosmetic treatment is completely safe and does not pose any threat of severe side effects. Although an injectable procedure, Botox is not a painful skin treatment and is only minimal.


What Are the Benefits of Preventative Botox? 


Botox holds cosmetic and medical benefits. But its primary use is in the aesthetic and cosmetic market as more and more people have started taking aging signs seriously. Instead of using topical anti aging creams that may or may not work, Botox can ensure effective results. If you are in your mid-20s or early 30s and notice signs of early aging like fine lines or smile creases, then Botox could be a good solution. Most experts agree that getting Botox early can help slow down signs of aging and even eliminate a more significant need for Botox if done correctly by a professional. So why wait, if you can address the problem right away? Here are some benefits of opting for this anti aging treatment early on: 


It Can Prevent Collagen Loss


Usually, as we age, we lose collagen present in the skin, and our skin cells also inhibit their collagen production, which causes skin issues and aging signs. This process begins slowly and becomes visible when we are around 30 and accelerates in our 40s, leading to noticeably aging skin (wrinkles, creases, and skin folds). However, starting Botox treatments early on may help slow down this process, allowing you to enjoy a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance for longer than you would have otherwise. 


Botox May Help Slow Down the Wrinkle Process


Knowing how Botox works is key to understanding how it can be used preventatively: Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerves that lead to muscle contraction, thus relaxing and softening any wrinkles. This makes Botox ideal for dynamic wrinkles (those that come from the contraction of muscles). 


Botox inhibits the movement of these muscles and trains the face to avoid them even as the product wears off with time ensuring face skin tightening. This skin treatment is a valuable tool for preventing these wrinkles from forming in the future, starting from a young age. Slowing down the activity of muscles even before they start creasing the skin will prevent deep lines from forming. Minor treatments and maintenance over time will give much more natural long-term results as it is not a permanent solution for aging signs.  


Lower Long-Term Botox Costs


Deciding to use Botox in your 20s or 30s could mean that you will need fewer treatments and would have to worry less about skin creasing in the future. Because Botox impacts the muscles of your upper face, many patients require fewer ‘touch-ups’ after multiple treatments. You will lower your long-term Botox costs if you start with this anti aging and preventative treatment as soon as you can.
