Wedding Planning For Your Skin

April 18, 2014

Helping your daughter plan her wedding can be a joyful and stressful time. Although you may have spent countless hours assuring your daughter that she will be a bride no one will ever forget, there’s no reason you can’t be the second most beautiful woman at the wedding. With just a little extra planning you can have beautiful skin that radiates that youthful glow.

Mother of the BrideLet the Wedding Skin Prep Begin

Wrinkles, sun spots and other signs of skin damage take years to develop and several months to treat. Scheduling a consultation at least a year before the big event gives you plenty of time to address enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, pesky wrinkles and UV damage. If the wedding is less than a year away, schedule your consultation quickly so you can develop an action plan that will address the larger issues before the big day.

9-12 Months: Learn to Love the Laser

Laser therapy is an incredibly effective treatment that improves the overall appearance and condition of the skin. Laser treatments take several months to work — sometimes six or more — but are brilliant at healing sun damaged tissue. These treatments can be performed on any areas of the body, not only the face. If you have leg spider veins or struggle with aging, sun-spotted hands, laser therapy may be right for you. Keep in mind that some laser treatments require seasonal timing and are not safe to perform in the summer months, so don’t wait until July to book your first appointment. They also often take multiple visits for maximum effectiveness.

3-6 Months: Discover the Beauty of Injectables

Botox isn’t just for Hollywood starlets anymore, and there is no topical product that matches the results injectables can provide. Botox and Dermal Fillers allow for relaxing and smoothing of forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. They can also lift saggy skin, improve dark under eye circles, restore volume loss and help achieve an overall natural, youthful appearance. Most people tolerate injectables such as Botox, Restylane, Juvederm and Sculptra with few side effects and downtime, however, it is best to schedule these sessions well before the event to allow for the best results.

1-2 Months: Fine Tuning

Two months before the wedding should be spent finishing up laser treatments, scheduling necessary injectables, and testing makeup and skin care. You won’t believe how much more fun putting on makeup will be when you don’t have to worry about foundation and lipstick sinking into unwanted lines! Avoid trying any new products and be sure to schedule any final skin treatments no less than 4 weeks before the wedding. Finally, you can relax as you complete every last detail like the young-at-heart woman you are.
