It’s finally summer, which means one thing — wedding season is upon us! Whether you’re the bride, in the wedding party, or a guest, a visit to your Dallas, TX dermatologist will help you look your best for these special occasions. That’s why we’ve put together a list of popular pre-wedding treatments and a timeline of how far before the big day to get them.
Several months before:
CoolSculpting is an innovative treatment that uses Cryolipolysis® technology to freeze away fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. If you eat right and exercise but just can’t get rid of fat in stubborn areas like the stomach, thighs, and arms, then CoolSculpting is right for you. Results are visible within 2 to 3 months, as your body naturally metabolizes the fat in the treatment area.
With weddings comes an onslaught of pictures. KYBELLA can help you look your best at every angle by eliminating that pesky double chin. KYBELLA is made from a chemical that occurs naturally in the body to break down fat cells. It is injected into the fat in a series of treatments which will leave you with the sleek jawline you desire. You’ll notice a difference after 2 to 4 treatment sessions, spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
One month before:
BOTOX is one of the most popular treatments at our Dallas, TX dermatology office, and it’s becoming increasingly popular for soon-to-be brides. BOTOX can be injected into the muscles around your eyes and forehead to smooth out wrinkles by temporarily blocking the nerves and relaxing the treated muscles. It’s best to get the injections a month before the ceremony, as some bruising may occur.
Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, are a proven way to refresh your appearance and combat early signs of aging. There are many options for fillers, but they all consist of a solution that is injected into the treatment areas to restore fullness and smooth out wrinkles. Like BOTOX, fillers should be injected a month prior to the event, so any bruising has time to dissipate.
One week before:
As the big day approaches, it’s time to get wedding-ready skin. Microdermabrasion revitalizes the skin by gently exfoliating with a high-speed stream of tiny crystals. It provides a number of benefits, including restoring healthy skin texture, removing sun and age spots, and reducing acne, minor scars, and fine lines.
An alternative to microdermabrasion is the HydraFacial. This exciting treatment instantly exfoliates and nourishes the skin with essential nutrients in just one treatment, making it the perfect option right before the wedding. It helps treat uneven texture, oily and congested skin that’s prone to acne, and dry skin.
