Beauty Bootcamp: The Pre-Wedding Treatments Every Bride Needs
It’s absolutely imperative that every woman looks amazing on her wedding day. From the perfect gown to the right hairstyle… even her nails must be exquisite. But we often find ourselves forgetting to primp the one thing everyone will see; our skin! Most brides prefer to apply light, natural-looking makeup for their big day, which means their skin must be stunning. So while you’re taking care of everything else, allow us to make things easier for you. Here’s a complete checklist of pre-wedding treatments you’ll need to be beautifully ready for your big day.
Dermaplaning is the perfect way to get your face primed and ready for light makeup. This cosmetic treatment rids the face of dead skin cells and other impurities. During treatment, a dermatologist scrapes a razor-like tool across the face, removing dead skin cells, oil and dirt. The scraping causes micro-injury to the skin promoting healing to begin. As the skin heals, collagen and elastin flood the face creating a new, clean, and smooth layer of skin. As a result, within the minutes the face looks significantly brighter and younger.
You’ve probably been working out and eating healthily to make sure you fit into your gown, but maybe you should also consider CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a procedure in which a cooling device is applied to problem areas. This device delivers coolness beneath the skin in order to freeze fat cells. Over time, the frozen fat cells die and are discarded by the liver. With one treatment, you can lose up to 20-25% of fat cells. CoolSculpting is best suited for individuals who are already at their desired weight and lead an overall healthy lifestyle. This procedure is meant to be a solution toward eliminating stubborn fat that proper exercise and dieting cannot get rid of. Results can be seen 1 to 3 months after the procedure so be sure to plan accordingly.
Laser Hair Removal
With that perfect gown, you’re probably going to show a little skin, so being hairless and smooth is essential. Laser hair removal is the easiest and most permanent solution to getting rid of unwanted hair. This 30-minute procedure requires pulsating beams of light to be passed over the skin. This light turns into kinetic energy as it interacts with the basal stem cells within the hair follicles. The heat causes these cells to rupture subsequently killing the hair. Soon, the dead hair will fall out, leaving behind smooth and hairless skin.
If you have deep wrinkles that dermaplaning can’t seem to fix, consider dermal fillers. These injections, consisting of hyaluronic acid, are inserted into the face to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Having a fuller face can instantly make you look younger. Dermal fillers can also help plump your lips so they’ll be ready for that all-important kiss.
Acne is a major no-no on the wedding day. To get rid of annoying pimples, opt for light therapy. This treatment emits blue or red light which penetrates just beneath the skin’s surface to zap away the bacteria that’s causing the acne. As the bacteria is killed, the inflammation begins to reduce, leading to the disappearance of your bumps.
With these treatments, your skin and body will be picture-perfect so you can confidently walk down the aisle.
