Signs of Early Aging? Cut This Out of Your Diet in 2022
Are you one of the many that crave your afternoon caffeine boost in the form of a sugary, bubbly beverage? As adults, we know that soda isn’t the best choice of beverage, yet the taste and energy boost are hard to pass up. But new research is uncovering that soda may do more than perk you up and expand your waistline. Current Nutrition Reports recently shared that drinking sugar-sweetened drinks like soda impacts your gut bacteria, causes inflammation, and increases oxidated stress. Do you know what all those things have in common? They’re causes of early aging.

CT Post: New Year, New Technologies: Esana’s Plastic Surgeons Reveal the Best Non-Invasive Anti-Aging Technologies for 2021
Heading into the new year, many of us are having the same thought: after 2020, I need an upgrade. Seeing our faces staring back at us from our screens this last year had many of us realizing just how much we’ve aged. In the past, some may have turned to injections or plastic surgery to help reverse the signs of aging, and while these treatments are effective, they carry certain physical risks and recovery times.
Times have changed. Now there are multiple non-invasive, effective anti-aging treatments with little to no necessary recovery time offered by plastic surgery centers and select MedSpas around the country. Ultherapy, Morpheus8/Fractora, and Evoke are 3 treatments that fight the effects of aging—sagging skin, wrinkles, and sun damage—without the use of scalpels or injections. By naturally stimulating your body’s collagen production, these alternatives to more invasive procedures can produce stunning results.

Sound advice for your aging face
