Is your skin ready for your wedding?

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want to look and feel your best. While you may be focused on finding the perfect dress and planning the perfect ceremony, remember you would like your skin to be in the best condition too! Proper skin preparation can help you achieve a radiant, flawless complexion that will leave you feeling confident and beautiful on your big day.

How do you start planning and preparing for your wedding? No worries, we got you! 

 

Countdown to 6 months! 

To discover the ideal aesthetic treatments for your skin, consider scheduling a consultation with a qualified medical aesthetic doctor. During your consultation, you can discuss your goals and concerns and determine the best course of action.

To begin your journey towards glowing skin, it’s recommended to start with treatments that provide long-lasting results. These treatments may take time to show significant improvements and include:

 

Dermal Fillers

Starting Dermal Fillers earlier will help prepare you to achieve the perfect look for your big day! Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that can enhance your facial features, smooth wrinkles, and restore volume to areas that have lost their fullness over time. These treatments can improve the appearance of the lips, cheeks, under-eye area, and jawline, among others. Dermal fillers are also safe and effective for adding a youthful glow to your skin.

By starting dermal fillers six months before your wedding, you can give your skin the time it needs to adjust to the treatment and show its full potential. This also allows time for potential side effects to subside, giving you the best possible results on your big day.

 

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of sagging skin, fine lines, and achieve a more lifted look. The best part is that there is no downtime or recovery period so that you can return to your daily activities right after the treatment.

If you plan on starting Ultherapy for your wedding day, it’s best to begin the treatment at least six months before the big day. This will give your skin enough time for collagen stimulation to see visible results and allow for any touch-ups or additional treatments as needed.

 

Thermage FLX 

Thermage treatment works by stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

The effects of Thermage are typically seen gradually over several months, with optimal results visible about six months after treatment. That’s why scheduling Thermage treatment at least six months before your wedding is essential to give your skin enough time to heal and show the full results.

One of the benefits of Thermage is that it’s non-invasive, meaning it does not require incisions or needles. The treatment involves using a handheld device that emits radiofrequency energy to the skin’s deeper layers. This energy heats the collagen fibres, causing them to contract and tighten, and stimulates the production of new collagen.

Thermage can tighten loose skin around the eyes, face, neck, and body. It can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin look smoother and more youthful.

 

Countdown to 4 months! 

Skin Boosters

It is essential to take good care of your skin to ensure it looks its best. Skin boosters are an effective way to enhance the appearance of your skin, making it look plumper, smoother and more radiant.

Skin boosters inject hyaluronic acid into the skin, which attracts and holds onto water, resulting in improved hydration levels. This helps to improve the texture and quality of your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ideally, start skin booster treatments at least three months before your wedding. This allows enough time for the best results to show. The results of skin boosters can last up to 6-9 months, so it is recommended to have the treatment done a few months before the big day to ensure optimal results.

Remembering that skin boosters are not a replacement for a good skincare routine is also essential. You should continue to cleanse, moisturize and protect your skin from the sun to maintain the results of your treatment.

Lasers 

Lasers have become famous for brides-to-be who want to achieve their best skin before their wedding day. Laser treatments can address various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture.

Lasers use ultra-short energy pulses to break up the pigment and stimulate collagen production in the skin. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots, and uneven skin tone. The treatment is relatively quick and has minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for brides-to-be who want to look their best without taking too much time away from wedding planning.

If you decide to undergo a laser treatment, starting the process at least four months before your wedding is recommended. This will allow time for multiple sessions to achieve optimal results and any necessary downtime for your skin to heal between treatments. Your medical professional can work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your specific needs and timeline.

 

Countdown to 2 months! 

Jaw BTX 

Your wedding is a special day with all eyes on you; you want to look your best. While many brides-to-be focus on perfecting their hair and makeup, remember your skin! One treatment that can help you look your best is jaw BTX.

Jaw BTX is a non-surgical treatment that can help slim down your face and give you a more defined jawline. It works by relaxing the muscles in your jaw, which can help to reduce the size of your masseter muscles. This gives you a more sculpted look and can help relieve any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing from teeth grinding or clenching. This treatment is designed to relax the muscles in your jawline, which can help to create a more defined and slimmed-down look.

By reducing the size of the masseter muscles in the jaw, BTX can help to create a V-shaped face that is more feminine and youthful. This can be particularly beneficial if you have a square or wide jawline, which can be caused by genetics, teeth grinding, or overuse of the jaw muscles.

Planning is essential if you are considering getting jaw BTX before your wedding. The treatment can take up to four weeks to show its full effect, so you’ll want to schedule your appointment well before your big day. Working with an experienced provider who can help you achieve your desired look while avoiding unwanted side effects is essential. You can even try BTX on other areas of your face, but it is necessary to consult a medical professional to ensure a smooth treatment plan before your wedding.
