Planning a wedding can be a stressful process involving multiple crucial decisions. Amid the controlled chaos of finding vendors, picking a venue, and deciding on the perfect cake, any beauty prep ahead of the day you say “I do” may fall through the cracks. We’ll discuss all the little things you can do to look and feel your best as you walk down the aisle. Manicures, pedicures, and professional makeup and hairstyling are only scratching the surface of treatments you can have before you exchange your vows with your partner.
While it’s easy to get caught up in a lengthy to-do list before your big day, don’t forget the importance of self-care. Our team at Aesthetx offers some insights on the various treatments you may consider up to eight months before you and your significant other tie the knot.
6 to 8 Months Before the Wedding
When you look at your calendar, you can see there’s plenty of time, but your wedding day will arrive before you know it. You’ve probably got the venue for your big day secured, but here are some things we recommend considering six to eight months before your wedding.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can ensure smoother, softer skin that will look flawless during your wedding ceremony, reception, and as a plus you won’t need to worry about shaving or waxing during your dream honeymoon. While most people need three to five sessions for maximum effects, we can customize a plan especially for you to ensure the best results. Each treatment is quick, convenient, and very manageable. At Aesthetx, many of our clients combine laser hair removal for the underarms, legs, and above the lips with body contouring and skin rejuvenation procedures.
For many people, diet and exercise will not remove the necessary amount of stubborn fat bulges on some body regions. With less than a year before your wedding, now is not the time to consider an invasive procedure that may require extensive recovery.
Maybe you’d like to take your partner’s breath away on your wedding night by revealing toned arms, legs, and abs. Thankfully, Aesthetx offers two proven non-surgical and non-invasive treatments to reduce fat pads, tone muscles, or both.
- CoolSculpting/DualSculpting: Aesthetx offers only the most advanced, clinically proven technology for our patients. That’s we are one of the only practices in Silicon Valley offering DualSculpting, the next step of the revolutionary CoolSculpting system. DualSculpting allows us to treat your trouble areas from two sides, increasing the efficiency, symmetry, and power of cryolipolysis. By cutting your treatment time in half, DualSculpting is the time-saving fat-reduction answer you’re searching for. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive process of Cryolipolysis™ to target fat cells under the skin and freezes the fat cells where they will gradually be metabolized by the body and flushed away. There’s no down time and it’s great for targeting specific areas including your abdomen, back, flanks, hips, thighs, buttocks, or arms.
- EmSculpt: Our non-invasive EmSculpt system offers our patients a body sculpting procedure that increases current muscle mass and helps your body to grow new muscle fibers while simultaneously breaking down fat pockets. This groundbreaking technology targets stubborn fat bulges and builds your underlying muscles for a sleeker, more toned figure by using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to produce a series of supramaximal muscle contractions. Unlike voluntary muscular contractions that happen during regular exercise, supramaximal muscular contractions are far more powerful and do not allow muscles to have a relaxation period. During an EmSculpt treatment, these contractions help to break down fat and strengthen muscles, creating a more defined abdomen, firmer and rounder buttocks, and shapelier legs and arms. It is an excellent non-invasive treatment to complement your efforts in the gym.
4 to 6 Months Before the Wedding
As your big day draws closer, there’s still so much to do. Don’t worry. Aesthetx has you covered with minimally invasive injectables that will resolve pesky wrinkles and deliver a beautiful facial contour.
Dermal fillers add youthful volume where needed, while smoothing and re-contouring your facial appearance. Aesthetx offers a wide range of filler products you can customize for your specific needs and our providers can help you with the best results.
To eliminate expression lines like forehead creases and crow’s feet, products like BOTOX®, DAXXIFY, Xeomin® block nerves from sending signals to facial muscles. They won’t contract when you smile, squint, or frown, leaving you looking beautifully relaxed and refreshed. The results are temporary and with the help of our providers, we can create natural results that will ensure amazing results for your big day.
1 to 4 Months Before the Wedding
We’re in the home stretch, and it’s time to put the finishing touches on your facial beauty. Injectable touch-ups are excellent treatments as the big day draws even closer.
If you’ve decided to use injectable neuromodulators like BOTOX® or Xeomin® before your wedding, schedule a touch-up session one to four months before your big day. With jawline fillers becoming popular for a defined look, we recommend using fillers such as Volux several months ahead ensures you are happy with your look well ahead of the big day. A smooth, soft, and flawless complexion will give you a natural glow as you look into your partner’s eyes and say “I do.”
1 to 3 Weeks Before the Wedding
It’s best to avoid any major cosmetic treatments this close to your wedding. While complications are unlikely when you choose an experienced provider, you don’t want to risk any noticeable side effects like swelling, bruising, and redness when all eyes are on you. However, if you start six to eight months early, you can be confident you’ll get the desired results and look stunning as you walk down the aisle!
Gentle facials before your wedding day are safe and will deliver the final touch.
Yes, there are genuine diamonds involved in the DiamondGlow treatment. We tailor the process for your skin care needs, carefully selecting dermal infusion serums with the six customized diamond tips of the DiamondGlow medical dermabrasion device.
This high-end skin resurfacing ventures deep into the dermis to clean and revitalize your skin. Use DiamondGlow in a three-week series for acne control or facial rejuvenation.
You can also pair this treatment with a C02 lift mask with DiamondGLOW and any of our deluxe facials. We send you home with additional take home masks which are perfect for your honeymoon and will have your skin glowing the morning of your wedding when using this treatment to ensure maximum glow.
Aesthetx’s microGLO and microPRO facials deliver therapeutics and BOTOX® to your skin’s surface. These advanced facials paralyze the tiny muscles in the skin pores, making them look smaller and preventing breakouts.
In each microGLO facial, we employ a specialized micro-injector called AQUAGOLD, creating each micro-channel with surgical-grade stainless steel plated with 24-karat gold. These tiny channels are the secret to achieving clear skin.
