It’s one of the most important days of your life — your wedding day — so looking and feeling your best is an absolute necessity. And while every bride knows that advance planning is the key to success, from selecting the perfect bridesmaids dress to inventing the cutest wedding favors, many brides skimp on their own prepping. The way we see it, the modern bride deserves so much more than just a mani/pedi and an updo!
It’s your wedding, and you deserve to feel renewed and radiant. This means it’s time to tackle all those persistent aesthetic concerns that have been weighing you down for so long. If you’re struggling with a belly pooch, for example, now’s the time to finally bid it farewell with SculpSure® non-invasive fat reduction or BodyTyte liposuction with skin tightening. Or, if you’re tired of covering up blemishes and uneven skin tone with makeup, a series of non-invasive BBL™ photofacials can help clear up problem skin and reveal more even skin tone — so you can wear makeup because you feel like it, not because you have to!
The only catch to all the amazing improvements you can achieve at a modern medical spa like ours? Results-driven treatments can take time to deliver optimal results. This means the time to start planning and undergoing certain aesthetic treatments could be now! Here’s a closer look at our most popular treatments, along with our suggested treatment schedule. Generally speaking, always err on the side of giving yourself more time than you need!
Non-invasive SculpSure fat reduction is a laser treatment that reduces targeted fat cells without breaking the skin, which means there’s no downtime. However, your results do take a bit of time. Start at least six months or a year prior to your wedding so you can undergo a series of treatments over several months to achieve your best results.
BodyTyte or FaceTyte minimally-invasive body contouring/skin tightening
Again, six months is a good window to allow ample time for your body to adjust to its new contours. In the first month following your treatment, you may need to wear a compression garment to help your body heal in alignment with your trimmer look. For at least six weeks, you’ll also need to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting. After that, you’ll watch your body continue to heal and adjust, revealing optimal improvements in the months leading to your wedding day.
Your face is the first thing everyone will see, so you want it to be luminous. You can achieve a lit-from-within radiance with a wide range of skin rejuvenation treatments. For example, a series of BBL photofacials performed every 6 weeks can correct pigmentation irregularities and reveal a more evenly-toned, healthy-looking complexion. BBL or IPL photofacials stimulate new collagen growth without breaking the skin, which means there’s no downtime. Another benefit: The more you do, the better your skin looks, so if you start now, you can enjoy your most radiant complexion in time for your special day.
Another heavy lifter in skin renewal is microneedling with radiofrequency energy, which is a game-changing solution for smoothing away stubborn acne scars and other textural concerns while also providing a tightening and smoothing effect. Our advanced microneedling treatments are Morpheus8, Fractora, or AquaGold fine touch™, and we can help you choose the right treatment for your unique concerns during your consultation. Microneedling removes dead, dull skin and triggers radiant new skin growth for smoother texture, brightness, and so much more with a few days to a week of downtime.
Because these treatments trigger new collagen growth, you’ll enjoy benefits for several months following your treatment, so we recommend scheduling your skin renewal sessions at least 3 months prior to your event.
To boost your results, we recommend incorporating medical-grade skin care like SkinCeuticals® by L’Oréal into your daily skin care routine to encourage your skin’s renewal process and enhance and prolong the benefits of your treatment.
Say goodbye to forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, plump your pout, and accentuate your cheekbones; the list of beauty benefits you can achieve with FDA-approved Botox® and dermal fillers is endless! However, every injection carries a risk of slight swelling, bruising, and pinpoint bleeding. This means you need to schedule your injectables session at least two full months before your event to ensure any side effects have fully subsided. Plus, it takes a few weeks for fillers and Botox to fully settle into your contours and take effect, so accounting for that adjustment period is important, too.
