Which pre-wedding medical Aesthetics treatments should you book before your big day?
Wedding season is on its way! For those considering medical Aesthetics treatments, now is the time to start planning your appointments. Whether you are getting married, in the wedding party, parent to the bride or groom, or a guest at the wedding. This season is the time to start committing to your skin prep journey. Booking a consultation with a Medical Aesthetician is the best place to start.
We recommend starting with skincare about 10 months prior to your wedding. A consultation gives you a personalized product regime for at-home as well as in-office Medical treatments. This also indicates beginning with medical facials to create healthy cells and restore collagen, clear acne, and smooth skin texture. This will give you time to see a noticeable difference in your skin as it takes 28 days for skin cells to turn over.
While we can notoriously be judgmental on our reflections, it’s a known fact that we often tend to associate brown spots or uneven skin tone with aging and fatigue. It’s safe to say not everyone loves freckles, sunspots, visible veins or broken capillaries, acne, or rosacea redness.
Discover a more radiant complexion by starting with a few Laser photo- facials. This treatment helps to pull sun damage to the surface, treat acne, reduce the appearance of rosacea and broken capillaries, also great for skin tightening and skin rejuvenation, as well as hair removal. Laser photo facials should be done during the fall, winter and early spring when the sun isn’t as strong.
Chemical Peels are another option when it comes to achieving a radiant glow, clearing the pores, and reducing sun damage and acne scarring. It is recommended to alternate a Jessner’s Peel with either micro needling or photo facials. Plan your treatments around your events, as there can be downtime with medical esthetics treatments.
Microneedling is suggested in a series of 3 to 4 treatments, spread 3 to 4 weeks apart. the purpose of a micro needling procedure is to stimulate collagen production by causing trauma to the skin. The cells will be stimulated to produce new healthy collagen, restoring acne scars, pigment, plump fine lines and wrinkles, fade stretch marks, help prevent ingrown hairs or scarring around the bikini line, tighten crepe skin, and give the skin an overall more even complexion. For the ultimate skin tightening treatment, we suggest pairing micro needling with Radio Frequency. This will stimulate collagen production deep within the dermis and can be done all over the body. Microneedling can be done any time of the year, but always recommend you avoid sun exposure after and use a medical-grade SPF 50 and Medical grade Vitamin C Antioxidant.

Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freezing, is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperature to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. The procedure is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise. This treatment varies with each individual, depending on where you are with your goal weight. We suggest booking a consultation 6 to 12 months before your wedding. At this time we can determine the best options for your goals. At this time we can discuss meal plans, exercise, vitamins and so much more.
Advanced Medical Aesthetics Treatments
When it comes to advanced medical aesthetics treatments this is a very personalized plan and suggest thinking about starting 6 to 12 months (if you are new to injections) before your big day. If you have previously had Botox you should consider having this done 2 weeks before your big day, filler should be done 3 to 4 weeks prior if done in the past. Considering more advanced treatments such as PRP hair restoration, threads or Belkyra? These should be consulted 1 year prior to your wedding, as they inquire about a series or a longer healing time.
Micropigmentation, also known as permanent makeup, permanent cosmetics or cosmetic tattooing, is a cosmetic procedure used to improve or replace lost colouring on your skin. Micropigmentation is most often used on your face – to enhance eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids (as eyeliner) and lips. It’s also used to camouflage or improve scars, even out skin colouring and restore colour to areas of skin that have lost colour. We suggest beginning this treatment 4 or 5 months before your events.
