Your wedding day is one of the most memorable and special days of your life. It is a day dedicated to celebrating you and the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, so looking your best is a must. We offer many services for brides-to-be at my plastic surgery center and medical spa here in Houston. In this post, I will discuss what treatments to schedule during the weeks leading up to the big day.
Planning to get your nails, hair, and makeup done is just the tip of the iceberg. Some of our favorite treatments for helping women get ready for their wedding day include:
- Facials: We offer 4 different facials that can be customized to fit your specific skin needs. The spa facial involves steaming, impurity removal, and a deep pore cleansing. Then we apply a mask and a hydrating serum. A mini facial includes a quick cleaning and exfoliation. If you choose our hydrating facial, you’ll enjoy a light steaming and exfoliation, a facial massage, and a hydrating mask. Lastly our exfoliating treatment involves removing dead skin cells using exfoliating products and tools. Then we apply a serum designed for your specific skin type. I recommend scheduling your facial about a week before your wedding day.
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC: This filler can be used to add facial volume to the cheek area. It can also be used to add volume to the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth. In addition to Some redness, swelling, and bruising is possible, so I recommend scheduling your appointment about 2 weeks before the day of your wedding. The results last about a year.
- Restylane® Lyft: This filler is made from hyaluronic acid and is designed to augment and lift the cheeks. It can also be used to restore volume to your smile lines. In addition, Restylane can be used for hand rejuvenation, enabling you to proudly show off your ring in photos. Some patients experience redness, swelling, or bruising, so like JUVÉDERM, I advise you to schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks before your wedding day.
- KYBELLA®: Many of my patients mention that a double chin is one of their biggest cosmetic concerns. KYBELLA is an injectable treatment that is designed to reduce fat in the submental area. It was actually ranked number one in the top nonsurgical wedding treatments by RealSelf. The product is made from deoxycholic acid, which damages fat cell walls, triggering the natural elimination process for injured cells. Treatment takes about 30 minutes, and you can typically return to you normal daily activities immediately afterward. You will begin to see changes a few days after a single treatment; however, most patients opt for 2 to 4 treatments for best results. I recommend starting treatments a few months before your wedding.
Preparing for your wedding day can be stressful, so be sure to take a little time for yourself. You deserve some extra attention—and personal care—as your big day approaches. To learn more about wedding treatments, request a consultation online or call our office at (713) 571-0600.
