Stressing about your “big day?” For many brides, the heightened emotions they feel in the weeks and days leading up to their weddings can show up in unexpected (and unwanted places) — like your skin. Acne flare-ups, dark under-eye circles, and uneven skin tone may be making you more stressed out.
Planning your pre-wedding beauty regimen months before the big day can help maintain healthy, beautiful skin—warding off and addressing potential cosmetic issues. This is particularly true with med spa treatments such as laser hair removal or CoolSculpting®. Certain treatments take longer to produce the final results, so you should plan accordingly.
Bridal Beauty Timeline
Here’s your indispensable timeline before “I do.”
6 Months Prior
This is a good time to begin a series of laser hair removal treatments if you’re concerned about unwanted hair. You can say “goodbye” to the hassle of tweezing, shaving, or waxing after undergoing laser hair removal. But here’s the tricky part: Because hair growth happens in cycles, we can’t treat all the hair in the area at the same time. To get the best possible results, we recommend scheduling at least 6 treatment sessions spaced a few weeks apart.
3 Months Prior
Sweating about the wedding yet? Exercise and diet can help you shed excess weight, but even then, localized fat pockets can be less-than-responsive to the most diligent workout routine — no matter how much time you spend at the gym. CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat without surgery, targeting the abdominal area, “love handles,” inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and back fat or “bra fat.”
CoolSculpting works by using carefully controlled cooling to selectively target fat cells without damaging the skin’s surface or surrounding tissues. You may need 1 or 2 treatments, and the final results emerge about 3 months after the procedure.
1 Month Prior
You’ve got plenty of logistics to worry about by now, so keep it simple with your beauty regimen. This is a good time for injections of dermal fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic. Fillers such as JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA produce subtle lip enhancement that will look great when they pronounce you man and wife and you finally get to kiss. Scheduling your injectable treatments at least a month before the wedding is ideal because any redness or swelling associated with the injections will be gone when you walk down the aisle.
This timeline is a sample of what you can do — not an exhaustive list of treatments that can help you look and feel your best on the day of your wedding. The White Orchid Spa offers a range of beauty services to keep your skin looking its best. These include dermaplaning, brow and lash tweezing and tinting, and salon hair styling. You can even schedule a full-face dermaplaning immediately before one of our facial treatments to enhance the results.
If he’s open to it, you might also want to mention to your future husband that White Orchid offers spa treatments designed for men, including Our Signature Ultimate Massage Ritual, back or chest waxing, or a men’s facial.
