You want to look stunning on your wedding day, and just like planning every other aspect of your wedding, you should start planning your pre-wedding skin care treatments well in advance.
If possible, start with an initial consultation six months to a year in advance. Because many procedures require downtime or don’t see full results right away, planning ahead will allow us to create a personalized treatment schedule that will maximize your results for your wedding day.
Below are some skin care treatments you may want to consider so you look amazing on your big day.
Microneedling (with or without PRP)
Microneedling is a fantastic skincare treatment option for brides because it can improve a long list of skin issues. This procedure creates tiny injuries to the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing response. The result is to stimulate skin regeneration and collagen and elastin production beneath the skin’s surface. Adding PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which is a substance derived from your own blood, can boost the effects of microneedling.
Microneedling can improve fine lines and wrinkles, texture, acne and other scars, brown spots and other discoloration, large pores, and even subtly tighten the skin. Results are fully realized at about 4-6 weeks after treatment, and you may require more than one treatment scheduled about 6 weeks apart to get the best outcome. For this reason, it is a good idea to discuss your treatment plan several months before your wedding.
IPL uses pulses of light to target unwanted pigmentation, visible blood vessels, and wrinkles. This treatment visibly reduces the appearance of age spots, sun damage, Rosacea, scars, and other discoloration. IPL also boosts the production of collagen, improving overall texture and appearance. IPL can treat the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
You will begin to see results in about 10-14 days, with full results at 4-6 weeks. Like other therapies, you may opt for multiple treatments about a month apart to get the best results.
Peels are another great option for improving the texture and appearance of your skin with little or no downtime. Peels use specialized formulations of chemicals to affect the outer layer of the skin, promoting cell turnover and skin renewal. There are a wide range of chemical peels that are customized to focus on different concerns, including fine wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, and acne.
Your skin might be pink and peel (similar to a sunburn) for the days following a peel, so you would not choose to have this treatment directly before your wedding. Results last several months but vary depending on several factors, including the specific course of treatment you choose. You may require a series of peels spaced about 1-2 months apart to see optimal results.
Fillers are safe and effective injectable treatments that strategically plump skin to smooth wrinkles and improve sagging. Specific types of injectables can also be used to enhance lips or reduce a double chin. There a many different types of fillers, and because treatment is very personal, you should discuss your options and particular goals in-depth with your provider.
Clear + Brilliant
This cutting-edge treatment is a milder form of laser skin resurfacing that is ideal for treating patients in their 20s and 30s. The Clear + Brilliant laser treats the outermost layers of the skin, subtly improving skin texture, fine lines, and pore size. There are two options to choose from, which can target discoloration from sun damage or melasma or tone and elasticity, depending on your personal needs.
Skin will look brighter and feel softer after a few weeks, and the results can last several months.
