Supporting this trend, Cutera has seen a surge of interest in three laser treatments. Laser Genesis, a popular treatment among women of all ages, enhances the complexion by reducing redness, fine lines, and pore size. Cutera also offers Pearl and Pearl Fractional. Pearl improves overall surface issues such as uneven skin tone, fine lines and brown spots; Pearl Fractional addresses the skin's deeper layers to minimize more severe photodamage. Combination therapy with Pearl and Pearl Fractional, known as Pearl Fusion is often preferred by physicians. With Pearl Fusion, patients receive a complete resurfacing solution, in a single treatment session – including deep resistant wrinkles.
Looking and Feeling Younger
The majority of women approaching a milestone birthday (64%) say they do take steps to look younger, including nearly half of women approaching their 30th birthday (45%) and over 3 in 4 approaching their 60th birthday (76%). Popular strategies include coloring their hair (43%), wearing make-up (36%) or purchasing expensive skincare products (16%).
Other approaches used to look and feel younger: shopped in the juniors department (7%), lied about their age (5%), dated someone younger (4%) and simply stopped celebrating birthdays (2%).When presented with a list of popular activities and asked what they would be willing to do to stop the aging process – 36% say they would give up alcohol for 5 years, the number one choice for all age groups. Other answers included giving up watching TV and going on vacation for 5 years (19% each), and giving up a favorite food for 5 years (16%). More women are willing to give up sex for 5 years (12%) than give up the Internet for the same time period (8%) if that would stop the aging process. "Ultimately, nearly 4 in 10 (36%) were not willing to do anything to stop the aging process," said Dr. Jaliman. "I think we can project that these women accept aging as a natural progression and would not view birthday milestones with anxiety."
