When should you schedule aesthetic treatments before your wedding?
Your wedding day is one of the biggest days in your life, so it’s only natural that you’d want to look and feel your best. All eyes are on you and you’ve got photographers, videographers, family, and friends documenting your every angle. So how do you prepare? We’ve got your complete dermatologist-approved timeline for pre-wedding aesthetic treatments:
12 months away
If you’re considering laser hair removal so you don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing leading up to all your pre-wedding festivities, you’ll want to start nearly a year out. This allows time for a full series (usually 8-10 treatments every 4-6 weeks are recommended, depending on the area).
9 months away
Not seeing the fitness results you’re hoping for? CoolSculpting can freeze away stubborn fat by up to 25% per treatment. Optimal results take several months and the number of recommended treatments varies based on your desired results. Therefore, it’s a great idea to get assessed and begin treatments at least 6-9 months before your big day!
6 months away
Want to tighten things up? Thermage FLX reshapes and restructures your collagen, to produce a tighter, firmer, more youthful appearance on the face, neck, or anywhere on the body. You may see results right away, but they tend to appear gradually in the two to six months following your treatment.
1 month away
Injectables, such as Botox or filler, are used to soften fine lines and wrinkles or to enhance your existing features, such as lips and cheeks. If you are trying Botox or filler for the first time, consult with your injector as you may need to schedule your appointment at least six months out to allow time to trial and tweak your results. If you are not new to Botox or filler, a touch-up appointment approximately one month out is ideal, as it gives time for the product to settle and look most natural on your wedding day.
2 weeks away
If you’re looking for a laser facial to prepare the perfect canvas for your wedding day glam, consider a Clear + Brilliant treatment a couple of weeks prior. Clear + Brilliant rejuvenates your skin from the inside out, leaving you with smoother, softer, and more supple skin! Keep in mind: if you are looking to target texture or pigmentary concerns, consider starting a series of Clear + Brilliant treatments three to six months out, with the last treatment scheduled at least two weeks before your big day!
1 week away
Waited until the last minute to book a facial? Schedule a Fire + Ice instant facial the week of your wedding and get immediate results with no downtime! Fire + Ice treatments tighten, brighten, and even out your skin tone while increasing collagen production for a supple, radiant glow.
Stress-free brides book early
Between managing vendors, your coordinator, and your RSVPs, you’ve got enough pressure without adding appointment conflicts. Sticking to a simple treatment timeline and booking early will ensure you’ve left enough time to reach all of your goals by your special day.
