Hear Wedding Bells? When You Should Start Cosmetic Treatments Before Your Wedding

skin treatments before your wedding

You want to look and feel your best on your wedding day, and you will likely be busy with preparations for months before the date.  When you’re planning your wedding, don’t forget cosmetic treatments in your timeline. Whether you’d like to have laser skin treatments, clinical skin care or facials, or even an injectable treatment to reshape your jawline, it’s never too early to start getting yourself ready.  While some women choose to have surgical procedures to prepare for their weddings, this blog will focus on non-surgical options with more minimal recovery and downtime.  

Start around six months before your wedding day.

Ideally, you would begin using a consistent skin care routine with high-quality clinical products at least six months before your wedding day.  They take time to see results. And you don’t want to be trying new products close to your big day, so finding and consistently using your ideal skincare routine should happen several months before your wedding.

This is also a good time to begin getting skin treatments such as chemical peels or laser sessions to revitalize and brighten your skin. If you have laser hair removal, you should anticipate at least five monthly sessions, so starting at least six months in advance is best. Our technologically-advanced MiraDry treatment can significantly reduce armpit sweating, and many brides or grooms-to-be seek out this treatment months before their wedding to permanently reduce perspiration and odor.

Finally, there are some non-surgical options to address specific aesthetic concerns. For instance, if you are unhappy with your jawline, a state-of-the-art injectable treatment called Kybella® can be used to eliminate your double chin. Results from a single session (most require multiple) can take up to 12-16 weeks so planning in advance is critical. Dermal fillers can be placed to add youthful volume where it is needed and smooth and re-contour your face. Latisse® can be applied to help you grow thicker, longer eyelashes.  All of these treatments can be started several months before your wedding so that you have plenty of time to obtain your best results.

Don’t have any major treatments within a few weeks of your wedding.

While a mild facial or gentle exfoliation a few days before your wedding should be okay, you want to avoid major cosmetic treatments for a few weeks leading up to the big day. While unlikely, you don’t want to risk having visible signs of cosmetic treatments on your wedding day.  If you get started six months early, you will have peace of mind knowing that you can get the results you want and feel stunning as you walk down the aisle!

Silk Peels are a great last-minute skin treatment.

It might also be a good idea to get a Silk Peel treatment for added glow at least a couple of days before your big day. Silk Peels exfoliates your skin gently through microdermabrasion equipment without the need for anesthetics and without needing much downtime for healing so you can look your best right on your wedding day!
