If you’re thinking of starting the year 2024 with an improved or better you, Cutis can be your beauty and skincare partner. Our aesthetic and anti-aging treatments can help you get ready for a brand new year and kick off 2024 feeling fresh, youthful, and rejuvenated.
Here are 5 aesthetic procedures that can give you a radiant start in the new year and a suggested timeline of when you should consider getting them done.
IF YOU HAVE A MONTH OR SO
Some aesthetic treatments require more time to show results or significant improvements. If you have (or are willing to wait for) a month or so, the following treatments are worth considering:
CoolSculpting Elite – is a revamped system of the original CoolSculpting machine. It uses Cryolipolysis or fat freezing to target and kill fat cells, but features C-shaped applicators that complement the body’s natural curves. It can also treat multiple areas in a single session and can reduce up to 27% of stubborn fat in treated areas.
CoolSculpting Elite is a completely non-invasive procedure, so the results can take time to show. You can see initial improvements in as early as three to four weeks, with full results appearing after three to four months. This is the period when the body has completely flushed all the treated fat cells.
Secret DUO – is a multi-platform system that can tackle a range of skin imperfections on both the face and body. It offers enhanced skin remodeling by combining radiofrequency (RF) microneedling and 1540nm erbium glass laser. Secret DUO provides gentle skin resurfacing and skin tightening, and can help improve:
- Acne and surgical scars
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Spider veins
- Eye bag
- Double chin
- Wrinkles and other signs of aging
- Skin tone and texture
You may be able to see improvements after a single session, but the recommended number of treatments is between three and five (scheduled a month apart). Within a month, however, you can notice an improvement in firmness, texture, and smoothness. Results will continue for six months after your last Secret DUO treatment.

IF YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS OR MORE
Many cosmetic injectables take a week or two to fully settle and blend in with the surrounding tissues. Below are two of the most popular injectable treatments at Cutis:
Botulinum toxin – can give you a refreshed and energized look by smoothing lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking the signal from a nerve to a muscle, which temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for lines and creases. Initial effects show after three to five days, but full results appear after 14 days. You can turn to it to improve:
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Angry 11s or frown lines between the brows
- Crow’s feet (fine lines in the corner of the eyes)
- Smoker’s lines or upper lip wrinkles
Dermal fillers – are ideal for restoring volume loss and enhancing your natural beauty. At Cutis, we have fillers made with hyaluronic acid (HA) and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which can both treat signs of aging for a more youthful appearance. You can see immediate improvements after your treatment, but it takes two weeks or more for the filler to fully set in. You can turn to facial fillers to:
- Soften the look of lines and wrinkles
- Reduce eye puffiness or under-eye bags
- Enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the lips
- Lift and define the cheekbones
- Correct folds and creases
- Contour the face shape or chin/jawline
- Improve facial symmetry
IF YOU HAVE A WEEK OR LESS
If you only have a week or less, facials can do wonders for your skin. The right facial treatment will not only clean and hydrate your skin, but also give it a firm and glowing appearance.
HydraFacial/HydraMaster Facial – cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates, and nourishes the skin. It involves removing dead skin cells, loosening the dirt and debris deep within the skin, and protecting and hydrating the skin with a nourishing solution. HydraMaster enables effective treatments with impressive results and no discomfort, downtime, or irritation. Benefits include:
- Speeds up the skin renewal process
- Improves skin tone and texture, including pigmentation
- Unclogs pores and allows the release of natural skin oils
- Helps reduce pore size and superficial scars
- Helps with fine lines and wrinkles
- Enables better absorption of skincare products, serums, and treatments
