What Makes Us Age & How Can We Prevent It?

Updated: Feb 23, 2019

Aging happens every day, as a matter of fact, we are growing older every single second. You’re already about 10 seconds older from when you started reading this blog post! This EXACT moment is the oldest you’ve ever been and I hate to tell you this but….. you’re only getting older. You’re body is getting older, your mind is getting older, and your precious skin is also getting older.

Here are some of the natural changes that happen to our skin over time:

  • Skin becomes rougher.

  • Skin develops lesions such as benign tumors.

  • Skin becomes slack. The loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin with age causes the skin to hang loosely.

  • Skin becomes more transparent. This is caused by thinning of the epidermis (surface layer of the skin).

  • Skin becomes more fragile. This is caused by a flattening of the area where the epidermis and dermis (layer of skin under the epidermis) come together.

  • Skin becomes more easily bruised. This is due to thinner blood vessel walls. (WebMD)

Other than Father Time himself, who is it that is making us, and our skin in particular, all age so quickly? And is there anything that we can so to stop it, or at least slow it all down?

According to The American Academy of Dermatology there are multiple factors that contribute to our skin aging, “our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. The medical term for this type of aging is “extrinsic aging.””

There are numerous things that we do in our everyday lives that contribute to this extrinsic aging;

  • Exposure to the sun

  • Smoking

  • Repetitive facial expressions.

  • Not eating a healthy, well-balanced diet.

  • Drinking alcohol

  • Not exercising regularly

  • Not cleansing your face properly

  • Not washing your face twice a day and after sweating heavily.

  • Not applying a facial moisturizer every day.

  • Using skin care products that sting or burn.

Unfortunately, many of us are already doing or have done most of these things. However, lucky for us, Total Body Aesthetic offers the absolute PERFECT solution to make your aging skin young again!


Since the very beginning, Total Body Aesthetic has had an ongoing mission of enhancing and enriching the lives of every single patient that walks through their doors. In order to fulfill the company’s mission, Total Body Aesthetic provides patients with top-notch expertise and treatments to assist them in reaching their goals in the best ways possible. The world-class treatment that I want to focus on today is ThermaLift.

Simply put, ThermaLift is a non-invasive procedure that works to eliminate wrinkles and sagging skin. Like many of the noninvasive procedures offered through Total Body Aesthetic, ThermaLift uses a radio frequency device to deliver heat to cells in the lower levels of skin, while not disturbing or harming the cells towards to the surface on the skin. Heat causes your collagen to begin to contract, which results in an instant tightening of the skin. As time goes on, patients will look into the mirror and see a more radiant, and youthful version of themselves!

Your ThermaLift treatment can be used to tighten multiple areas of skin, however, treatment is most often applied to the following areas: forehead, neck, eyes, lower face, mid face, and eyebrows. Although these areas tend to be where the treatment is most commonly done, ThermaLift can be applied on ANY part of the body!

ThermaLIft treatments are beyond safe (FDA Approved) and extremely convenient (most treatments take 30 minutes. These treatments have the potential to be LIFE-CHANGING! The newer, younger, and more energetic version of you is waiting! Total Body Aesthetic offers FREE consultations, giving patients the opportunity to sit down with a professional and make the decision that is best for them. If you are considering, or know someone who wants to add some years back to their appearance, please don’t hesitate to call or email the team at Total Body Aesthetic! Tel: 1-(833)-665-(BODY)2639
