Top 6 Wedding Beauty Preparation Tips
Eliminate Your Double Chin with Kybella
All eyes will be on you during the ceremony. If excess chin fat is a concern, you may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your profile. Fortunately, there’s an effective, non-surgical solution available. If you have a moderate to severe double chin, a treatment using deoxycholic acid may be the right option. Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that dissolves fat beneath the skin to improve the overall appearance of your chin. For best results, book your treatment starting six to seven months in advance of your wedding date. After just two to six sessions, you’ll be able to focus on vowing your eternal love instead of worrying about the way your chin will look your wedding photos.
Get a Smooth Look with Botox
Even if your wedding plans aren’t going as smoothly as you’d hoped, your face doesn’t have to show it. Keep worry lines at bay with Botox treatments about five to six months before your big day, with a repeat treatment one month before your nuptials. Injections temporarily relax muscles for a smoother, less wrinkled appearance. Fast results — usually within three to seven days — will boost your confidence as you prepare to walk down the aisle. With results lasting three to four months, this essential step in your wedding beauty preparation will help you look amazing well beyond your honeymoon.
How soon before an event should I get Botox?
Latisse for Longer Eyelashes
If you want your eyes to really pop while you’re in the spotlight, consider adding Latisse at the four-to-six-month mark in your wedding beauty preparation schedule. The lash enhancer by Allergan promotes growth for fuller, thicker, darker and longer eyelashes. The FDA-approved formula will give your wedding-day makeup an extra dose of glamour without the hassle of fake eyelashes. Latisse could help you, your mom and your bridal party avoid the embarrassment of losing your lashes in one of the many tearful moments as you recite your vows.
Get Your Best Skin Ever with a Chemical Peel
Smooth, flawless skin is a must on your wedding day. Book a chemical peel for one to two months before your wedding for baby-soft, immaculate skin. Chemical peels are resurfacing procedures that remove the topmost layers of skin. The layers that grow in their place are much smoother and more youthful-looking. Your skin will be incredibly touchable, and you’ll provide a smooth, clean slate for your wedding-day makeup.
Relax and Rejuvenate with Fillers
Let’s face it: as a bride-to-be, you’ll probably experience some pre-wedding jitters. No matter how organized and even-keeled you are, it’s difficult to come out unruffled when planning goes awry or emotions come into play. Don’t let stress and sleepless nights get in the way of being the most beautiful bride ever. One month before the big event, enlist the aid of Aesthetic Injection Specialists in providing under-eye rejuvenation with Belotero or Restylane. These hyaluronic acid injections fill gaps between elastin and collagen fibers in your skin to create volume and erase dark circles under the eyes. The result is a refreshed, younger-looking face captured forever in your wedding photos. You’ll be glad you made these FDA-approved fillers part of your wedding beauty preparation.
Get Fuller, More Luscious Lips
Everything leads up to that big moment when you hear the words “You may now kiss the bride.” Get the most kissable lips possible with Juvederm or Restylane Silk lip augmentation three to four weeks before your wedding. Just as hyaluronic acid fillers restore fullness to the skin, they provide plumpness and volume to lips. Results last about six months, ensuring a pretty pout long after you’ve said, “I do.”
