Your aesthetic treatment timeline cheat sheet
When you've got a big event on the calendar, your to-do list can leave you more stressed than excited. And while we realize prepping for a special occasion means more than looking and feeling your best, let's be honest: it certainly sets the tone!
For some, it might be a single treatment for a quick refresh; for others, it might be a series of services for maximum results. So whether it's your wedding day, a red carpet event, or any other opportunity where all eyes are on you, we've compiled a complete treatment timeline to keep you cool, calm, and collected in preparation.
Here's when you should schedule aesthetic treatments before a big event:
Laser hair removal: 9 to 12 months out
Dreaming of your smoothest, softest skin? You'll want to plan for a full package of laser hair removal treatments, eight to ten treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. For best results, start at least nine months out.
CoolSculpting: 3 to 6 months out
If you want to target stubborn fat deposits that don't respond to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can help. The amount of treatments needed varies from person to person, but you'll want your last treatment to be at least three to six months before you're looking to show off your new shape.
Injectables: 3 to 4 weeks out
Injectables like Botox and Juvéderm, popular for their smoothing and volume-restoring capabilities, yield quick results with minimal recovery time. These treatments can be scheduled up to three weeks out to accommodate settling.
Clear + Brilliant: 2 weeks out
Clear + Brilliant is the best way to treat multiple issues at once, rejuvenating the skin, improving tone & texture, and reversing early signs of aging. Get this one on the books at least two weeks out, so you give your skin enough time to turn over and reveal its fresh new look.
Fire + Ice: 1 week out
And for those crunched for time or looking for a more immediate glow, Fire + Ice Instant Facials tighten, brighten, and even out your skin tone, increasing collagen production and giving you a radiant, healthy glow in minutes. You'll heal quickly from these fast-acting facials, so they can be booked just one week out.
Book early, sit pretty
Cut the stress from your upcoming events with some service scheduling know-how. Work backward from when you want to look and feel picture-perfect, book early, and save yourself the stress of trying to cram treatments in the week of a big event. Your skin (and sanity) will thank you.
