Our Recommendations for Pre-Wedding Bridal Skin Treatments

Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable events of your life, and the time leading up to it can be pretty exciting, too. While skincare is a must at any stage of life, there’s no better reason for extra pampering than to pursue beautiful bridal skin. After all, you’ll want your skin to look and feel its very best on the big day, and for the photos that will last a lifetime.

So, how do you unlock glowing skin before saying “I do?” Consider these cosmetic treatments to get skin that wows while exchanging vows.

Reveal Your Best Skin with Laser Treatments

If you have sun spots, hyperpigmentation, or acne scars, consider a laser treatment to reduce their appearance before the big day. Laser skin resurfacing, for one, gently removes the uppermost layer of your skin. This then stimulates the development of new skin cells and collagen, a protein that helps skin maintain its structure. In addition to alleviating scars and discoloration, laser skin resurfacing can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and large pores.

Because minor side effects like redness and irritation can occur, it’s best to book your first treatment a few months out from your nuptials. That way, you’ll be able to see how your skin reacts and gauge your healing time to plan your next sessions accordingly.

Treat Trouble Spots with Injectables

People tie the knot at all ages, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with rocking fine lines and wrinkles at the altar. But if these signs of aging aren’t on your guest list, allow us to banish them with injectables. Botox® is one of the most popular injectable treatments for addressing fine lines, but there are also many dermal fillers available to strategically add volume where gravity is taking its toll. 

Whether you’re a longtime recipient of these treatments or you’re just starting out, plan your final injectable appointment for about a month before the big day for peak results.

Primp and Pamper with Facials and Peels

Facials are often one of the first treatments that come to mind when we think of a soothing spa day. Beyond being a great way to pamper a bride-to-be, they can also promote healthier-looking skin in a number of ways. Our treatments can be tailored to match your skin’s needs, from clogged pores to dryness or sun damage.

Chemical peels are similar to facials but involve the use of acids to lift surface layers of the skin for more dramatic results. Like facials, peels can be customized to achieve your specific goals, such as skin brightening, reduced scarring, and collagen stimulation. Recovery time can vary, so consult with your dermatologist before scheduling.

Redefine Smoothness with Dermaplaning

If your big day involves special bridal makeup, dermaplaning may be worth considering. Everyone has hair on their face, and whether or not yours is typically visible to the naked eye, it can often become more pronounced under cosmetics. Dermaplaning removes the top layer of dead skin cells along with the peach fuzz known as vellus hairs for remarkably smooth skin. The result is a sleek surface that adheres makeup with ease, so your look stays locked in from your walk down the aisle to the celebratory send-off.
