5 Ways to Defy Aging

By Aesthetica Marketing Team @ Nov 20, 2015 | 0 comments











As much as we hate to accept it, aging is an unavoidable part of life. While you might not be able to avoid Father Time entirely, there are plenty of ways you can postpone his inevitable arrival, some of which you might have never even considered. Here are five ways you can defy aging:

Make H2O your best friend.

Water is essential for human life and it also essential in preventing aging. Your skin is the largest organ of the human body and when dehydrated it will show it in the form of dry patches and wrinkles. Drinking water replenishes skin cells and tissues while also flushing the toxins out of your body. This allows for smoother, younger and healthier looking skin. Medical experts recommend drinking 6-8 glasses of water every day to ensure overall health and keep your skin looking clear and healthy. So ditch the soft drinks and coffee for a glass of filtered H2O--your skin will thank you in the long run.

Extinguish those scented candles.

Gerontogens are environmental factors that speed up the aging process. Common gerontogens include: stress, cigarette smoke and scented candles. That’s right folks, your beloved Christmas-scented candles can actually cause accelerated aging. The paraffin wax and synthetic fragrances in candles are both borrowed from petroleum, and burning both paraffin and soy candles can release toxic chemicals into the air around you. The toxin-filled air can linger after the candle has burned out, trapping the chemicals in your house. Instead of using a candle to capture the smell of pine trees or the ocean, get some fresh air and actually visit nature.

Protect yourself from the sun.

While being tan might be aesthetically pleasing, sitting in the direct sunlight is detrimental to the health of your skin. Sun exposure has been listed as the number one cause of aging skin. UV rays destroy skin’s elasticity, causing it to prematurely sag and wrinkle. Sun exposure is also one of the leading causes of skin cancer and damaged vision. Avoid over-exposure to the sun by wearing sunscreen of 30 SPF or above. You can even protect yourself while making a fashion statement by wearing wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.

Eat clean.

By swapping processed foods for natural foods, you can avoid unhealthy phosphates. There are several different phosphates often added to processed food, all of which can weaken bones and interfere with Vitamin D. Eating a plant-rich diet will slow the aging process significantly. Be sure to include lots of dark leafy greens, citrus fruits and cauliflower, as these are chocked-full of essential vitamins and nutrients. It might not be as fun to eat an apple instead of drinking a bottle of apple juice, but remember: Apple juice has nearly twice the calories and sugar of an apple while only including one tenth of the fiber.

Go au naturale.

The beauty industry wants you to pile on the foundation and concealer in order to defy aging. However, that “wrinkle-erasing” foundation might actually be accelerating the aging process. The parabens often found in cosmetics can cause disruption to the estrogenic hormones which in turn, prematurely ages female fertility. High paraben levels have been found to increase the aging of women’s eggs. Don’t let the airbrushed advertisements fool you into slathering your face in makeup and allow your skin to breathe.

We Got Our Own Facelift

By Aesthetica Marketing Team @ Nov 2, 2015 | 0 comments

So after almost ten years, we’ve decided it’s time for some changes and a little facelift of our own.  We’ve worked hard with our Marketing Design Team to come up with something that accurately reflects the voice of our company.  After throwing several ideas back and forth and a few thousand fonts later, we’re excited to unveil our new logo and branding!  

The style is clean, earthy and modern.  We feel this better represents who we are and the direction we’d like to take our brand.  The colors and leaves graphics were chosen for the earthiness and natural elements.  Although plastic surgery and medical spa treatments may seem superficial, our goal has always been to keep a natural and authentic look with each and every client.  The treatments and surgical procedures we perform are meant for mending, restoring or enhancing.  We want all of our clients to walk out feeling like the beauty they always had, was found again.  

The clean, modern feel also reflects more of a professionalism that you would expect from a Medical Spa and Surgical Center.  As Aesthetica is not exclusive to either men or women, we’ve designed the new logo to appeal to both.

Our next step is a full website revamp to generate a more streamlined online experience for our clients and future clients.  Our goal is to allow our clients to navigate seamlessly through the procedures and treatments we offer so they can easily find what they’re looking for and find the best way to achieve it.  

Last but not least, we’re excited to announce the launch of our Wellness Program.  As much as we all want to look our best, it’s just as, if not, more important to FEEL our best physically and mentally.  When our physical and mental health is a priority, we have the ability to help those around us.  We can play with our children.  We can make good decisions.  We can be a positive influence.  Which is why we want to grow a community of people who can support and lift one another in healthy living through exercise, clean eating and positive thinking.  

So we introduce to you… FIND YOUR CENTER by Aesthetica.  We’ll have weekly updates and invites for classes we’ll be holding for fun and different exercise trainings, nutrition education and techniques to live mindfully.  This is something we’re truly very passionate about.  We’re the most excited about bringing people together to make a difference in one another’s lives.   

We take pride in the work we do and as life continues to evolve, so shall we.  Come join us! 

Enjoy Summer More with Help from BioTe

By @ Mar 26, 2015 | 0 comments

With the Salt Lake City summer just around the corner. From summer vacations to picnics and Utah hikes, summer is a busy season! But if the thought of a non-stop summer leaves you feeling exhausted, you are not alone. Do the words sleepless, irritable, forgetful, anxious, depressed, and worn-out describe you? If you answered “yes” to these symptoms, keep reading to see if BioTe is right for you.  

As women age, their hormones are not as effective as they once were. This is the genius behind bioidentical hormone therapy. Using estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone to balance out hormones in the body, BioTe can help eliminate many symptoms of aging.

The BioTe pellets, which are derived from plants, are organically identical to the estradiol hormones and testosterone hormones that the body naturally creates.This means that Utah BioTe just gives the body the hormones it can no longer produce.

When your hormones are in balance, you will have the energy to participate in busy summer activities. Not only that, you will look good doing it. One of the biggest benefits to Salt Lake City BioTe is increased capacity for getting into shape.

Starting the bioidentical hormones now means you will look fabulous when you are poolside this summer. That’s not all BioTe can do for you. Utah women who have already taken BioTe have reported:

  • Increased mental clarity
  • Stronger libido
  • More energy
  • Better sleep
  • Greater bone density
  • Freedom from anxiety
  • Make hot flashes more manageable

The  BioTe experts at Aesthetica Medical Spa will create a custom treatment plan just for you to meet your individual needs. If you think BioTe could help you get the most out of this summer, our Utah medical spa consultants are here to answer your questions! Call us at 877-580-2622 to schedule a consultation to see how BioTe can help you make the most of your summer.

How to Get the Most from Laser Hair Removal

By @ Mar 19, 2015 | 0 comments

If you are tired of shaving, tweezing, or waxing unwanted body hair, you are a prime candidate for laser hair removal. With the Salt Lake City summer approaching, now is the time to start treatments and have smooth skin just in time for warm weather!

Here are some tips to get the most from laser hair removal:

  • Avoid caffeine the day before your treatment. This will help with pain and keep you relaxed.
  • Stay out of the sun. The laser will add pigmentation to the skin, so any tanning will increase the pigmentation. After your hair removal treatment, use SPF 20 or higher if you plan on being outside. Salt Lake City’s high elevation makes us more susceptible to sun exposure.
  • Do not tweeze or wax your hair for at least 6 weeks before your treatment. Only shave or use a hair removal cream to manage hair growth.
  • Shave the day before your treatment. Shaving will allow the laser to accurately locate the hair follicles.
  • Complete all treatments. After your first and second treatment, you may think that the hair is gone forever! This is not the case. To be effective, you will need to receive the total number of recommended treatments.
  • Schedule a consultation with a Utah medical spa. This consultation will give you more specifics on the treatments your skin will require.
  • Decide which areas you’d like to have laser hair removal treatment. If you are interested in treating more than one area of your body, talk to your Salt Lake City medical spa about discounts for multiple treatments. This could mean big savings in the long run.

Talk to the experienced technicians at Aesthetica Medical Spa, just a short drive from Salt Lake City, to customize your laser tattoo removal treatments. And, during the month of March, purchase a Brazilian bikini laser hair removal membership and get an underarm laser hair removal membership for FREE! ($410 value).

Don’t wait or you could miss out on this amazing medical spa dea! Call us at 877-580-2622 to set an appointment.

Laser Tattoo Removal by the Numbers

By @ Mar 12, 2015 | 0 comments

50%: Percentage of inked people who want a tattoo removed.

Once one of the hottest fads around, many Americans are now regretting going under the inked needle. If you are one of the millions experiencing tattoo regret, you are in luck.

Inklifters at Aesthetica is offering top-of-the-line laser technology to ensure that your experience is less painful and more effective.

3 to 6 sessions: The average number of sessions it takes to removal.

In the past, laser tattoo removal required up to 15 treatments. Luckily, the treatment has been revolutionized and now takes less than half the time!

Before committing to tattoo removal, you should first schedule a consultation with a professional to discuss the type of treatment you’ll need and the expected number of sessions. The size, color, location and age of the tattoo will determine the number of laser tattoo removal treatments. .

4 to 6 weeks: The recommended time between treatments.

Laser tattoo removal works through your body’s immune system. The laser activates the immune system; it then attacks the tattoo ink and pushes it out of the body.

This process takes about 4 to 6 weeks—give your body time to do its work. If the tattoo is treated earlier than the recommended 4 weeks, it will not speed up the removal process.

3 times: How much faster PicoSure removes tattoos versus older laser systems.

Although Q-switched lasers were effective at removing tattoos, the new PicoSure laser can do it more quickly, more effectively, and with less pain.

$400-$3000: Average cost to have a tattoo removed.

Just like the number of treatments for each tattoo varies, so does the cost. The cost per square inch per treatment is typically around $125. If your tattoo is large, or is a cover up tattoo, you may spend a little more to get it removed.

Curious about laser tattoo removal?

Inklifters at Aesthetica was the first in Utah County or Salt Lake City to have the PicoSure laser system. If you are considering laser tattoo removal, schedule a consultation with one of the experts at Aesthetica. Call us today to learn more. 877-580-2622.

All About Injectables & Dermal Fillers

By @ Mar 2, 2015 | 0 comments

The biggest secret to looking younger isn’t really a secret anymore. Botox® is a well-known solution to soften the look of wrinkles and reduce the lines that can make you look and feel old. But you may not know that there are a lot of injectable options that can help restore your skin’s youthful appearance and reduce lines and scars.

Several Salt Lake Medical Spas offer a variety of anti-aging treatments that can be very effective for minimizing wrinkles and lines. Which are the best for treating your aging issues? To help you decide, we’re going to tell you a little about Belotero®, Dysport™, and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC injectable dermal fillers.


Belotero Dermal Filler contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural component of youthful skin. This injectable treatment can soften the look of smiles lines around the mouth and those vertical lines along the lips that can ruin the look of your favorite lipstick. Belotero binds with water, so when it’s injected, it fills in the unique wrinkles and folds of your face, giving you smooth and natural results. These unique properties allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. Utah aesthetic spas and laser centers often use Belotero on their patients looking for a more youthful appearance.

Belotero could be a good choice for you if you want to soften

  • Smile lines
  • Vertical lip lines


Dysport is very similar to Botox, but it contains a different protein. Your Utah aesthetic medical spa can administer Dysport to relax the facial muscles that result in the deep creases that appear between the eyes (called glabellar lines). These are the lines that appear when you squint, concentrate, or frown. It can also give you a moderate brow lift. Very small amounts of Dysport are injected directly into the facial muscles beneath the creases. The active ingredient in Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, reducing activity and preventing the contraction that can cause frown lines. Several Salt Lake medical spas can offer Dysport facial treatments. It usually takes between 3-5 painless injections before you see the softening and smoothing of facial wrinkles.

Dysport is recommended for those who would like to reduce

  • Frown lines
  • Sagging brows


Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is an FDA-approved filler that can instantly add volume to the cheek area. This treatment is clinically proven and can give you a subtle lift that will restore the youthful contour of your face for up to 2 years. Juvéderm Voluma XC is an especially effective tool that Utah medical spas use to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. It is also good for improving the overall contour and outline of your face. Many Medical Spas in Salt Lake and throughout Utah offer Juvéderm Voluma XC treatments. This product is only available for patients over 21 and can have side effects, so please be aware of those before undergoing treatment.

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is used to improve

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Frown lines
  • Folds around the nose and mouth

Injectable Treatment at Aesthetica Medical Spa

Are you considering Botox or injectable dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and fine lines? The injectable experts at Aesthetica Medical Spa can help create the perfect treatment plan for you. Schedule your consultation today at 877-580-2622.

BioTe® Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Men

By @ Feb 19, 2015 | 0 comments

Last week we shared how Salt Lake laser hair removal can be a great option for men. This week we discover how bio-identical hormone therapy can also help the guys.

As men get older, their bodies aren’t always able to keep up with them anymore. Men in Salt Lake City may decide to make some lifestyle changes in order to feel better, such as eating better and working out. However, changes in diet and exercise routines may not be enough to bring back the energy and vitality that came naturally to them in their younger years.

For many men, the culprit may actually be hormones—specifically, the body’s inability to produce sufficient amounts of hormones such as testosterone. This leads to a condition commonly known as Low-T.  Below are just a few symptoms of Low-T:

  • Weight gain. The body is not able to burn fat as quickly as it once did, making it harder to shed pounds.
  • Muscle loss. Greater muscle mass makes the body more efficient, so losing muscles can also make it harder to lose weight.
  • Fatigue. Hormone imbalances mean the body functions less efficiently, leading to feelings of tiredness and fatigue.
  • Depression. In addition to feeling sluggish, hormone imbalances can lead to depression and lower self-esteem.
  • Low stamina. One of the most obvious signs to men that they have Low-T is a reduced libido and loss of interest in sex.

More and more men are turning to Salt Lake City bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to address these issues. Bio-identical hormones are identical to the ones naturally produced by our bodies. Because these hormones are chemically identical, they can help Salt Lake City men regain the hormonal balance that may be the root cause of many issues.

Not all hormone therapy treatments are the same, however. Traditional methods, such as patches applied to the skin, topical creams or pills taken orally can be effective, but they are inconsistent. The up-and-down effect of inconsistent treatment can be disruptive and lead to dosages that are too strong or not strong enough—at exactly the wrong times for when you need a consistent dose.

The way around this is BioTe, a hormone pellet therapy system for both men and women. BioTe treatments can be administered at a Utah medical spa. Rather than a pill you swallow or a cream or patch you apply to the skin, BioTe pellets are injected under the skin by a Salt Lake City medical spa professional. This subcutaneous administration of hormones provides for a worry-free way to administer a consistent dose over time to help men regain the feelings of vitality on a more regular basis.

Salt Lake City BioTe treatments may be a good option for men who haven’t been able to find a solution to their hormone imbalance issues. Consulting with the experts at a Salt Lake City medical spa can give you hope to correct the problems you may have thought you could not overcome.

Find out today if BioTe bio-identical hormone replacement therapy from a Utah medical spa is right for you. Call Aesthetica Medical Spa at 801.899.0030 to set your consultation.

Laser Hair Removal Tips for Sensitive Skin

By @ Feb 12, 2015 | 0 comments

For people with sensitive skin, the idea laser hair removal will offer relief from the pain associated with waxing and shaving. Our Utah medical spa offers laser hair removal on many different parts of the body. If all of your skin is sensitive, or if you have a specific area with sensitivity, here are some tips on how to assure that your experience with laser hair removal is a great one.

If you are interested in Utah laser hair removal and have sensitive skin, you should discuss the following topics in your consultation to determine if laser hair removal will work for you.

Patch Test

If you are concerned that your sensitive skin will have a reaction to laser hair removal, you should ask for a patch test to be done on your skin. A patch test is done to determine if laser hair removal will be safe for your skin type.  After about 24 hours, you will know if your skin will handle a laser hair removal treatment well.

Throughout the patch test, the type of laser used will be specified to your type of skin and your hair type. You should expect your skin to be slightly swollen, a bit red, and have goosebumps.

Keeping Comfortable

Receiving Salt Lake City hair removal is accompanied with a bit of discomfort. The sensation for each person is different, but if you have extremely sensitive skin you should request that a numbing cream be applied prior to the procedure. This topical cream will not change the effectiveness of the hair removal.

Some creams take up to 30 minutes to start working. Be sure to apply it early enough so the numbing is successful. Also applying an icepack to your skin ten minutes before the procedure has also been known to cut down on the pain.

During the laser hair removal session, you can ask the technician to use a cold attachment on the laser that will deliver a stream of cold air onto your skin. This will help soothe the area to make your skin more comfortable.

The Laser

Our Salt Lake City medical spa offers different lasers for hair removal depending on your hair color and the color of your skin. Darker skin and fairer skin are usually more sensitive, so the laser for that procedure will be chosen carefully. Once the correct laser has been chosen, you will be ready for your first treatment.

If the level of discomfort becomes too much, be sure to speak up. There are things that can be done to make you feel more relaxed. Our Utah laser hair removal process can be done in either a fast burst or a slow and continuous speed. If the pain of the laser hair removal is too much, be sure to ask for a break. It should be a good experience!

If you are thinking of taking advantage of our Salt Lake City laser hair removal services, call us today at 877-580-2622.
