Did you know the most common month for weddings in Central GA is NOT June? That’s correct. The most common month for a wedding in Central GA is actually, October. No matter when your big day is or how far out you are from that day, it is time to start preparing your skin. Spa Medical can help you get Bride-beautiful skin that will be glowing and perfect for your wedding portrait! Like everything else is planning a wedding, your skin takes thought, research, and action. Spa Medical is ready to be your wedding skin planner!  Below I have a suggested timeline to deliver skin worthy of the biggest day of your life!

6 Months Out

Come in for a skin consult to share your skin goals. We will start with a HydraFacial MD to deep cleanse, exfoliate, and infuse peptides and vitamins into your skin. This will allow us to have a proper evaluation of your skin type, texture and tone, as well as enable us to make recommendations for a treatment plan to reach your goals.  If you have specific issues such as pigmentation or redness, this will give us time for customized medical-grade skin care products to work.  If you have visible tone and texture issues like acne, acne scarring, or larger pores, you may need a series of treatments, like, chemical peels, laser therapies, or microneedling. These treatments not only make your skin feel and look better, but they also change the dynamics of the skin to last long after your big day.

1 Month Out

At least by a month out from the big day, you will want to come in for a consult and treatment of injectables.  Botox® requires up to 2 weeks for full results to relax fine lines and to manipulate muscles to lift, such as the arch of the brow. Dermal filler products, like Juvederm®, may also take a week or two to achieve a full outcome. Both Botox® and dermal filler may need a tweak for optimal results. Also, dermal filler has a greater risk of bruising following injections. Though uncommon, it could take up to 10 days for complete resolution of adverse effect from injecting filler.

1 Week Out

A HydraFacial MD treatment approximately a week from your wedding day will assure your skin will be glowing and make-up application will be smooth. Plus, this will be a relaxing treatment, which you will need after all the preparations are done and it’s almost go time!

Regarding wedding photographs, there are specific areas of treatment with dermal filler and Botox® that I like to address. The first area is commonly referred to as the crow’s feet.  These are the lines around the side of the eyes that are created when you smile. Most people are concerned with, and likely have already addressed, the frown and forehead lines, but may have forgotten the crow’s feet since these lines may not be visible until the smile muscles are contracted. Another area to consider dermal filler prior to photographs is the lips.  After taking time and pains to choose the perfect lipstick, you don’t want your upper lip to disappear when you smile. This is a common complaint we hear from young and older women. A small amount of filler, strategically placed in the upper lip, will maintain some volume, even when you smile. And lastly, don’t you love a beautiful profile portrait of brides? The facial features highlighted on the profile are more pleasing when the proper proportions are achieved. For some women, the projection of the lips needs enhancing and for others, it may be the chin that needs a greater projection. Both areas can be effectively treated with dermal filler for a beautiful profile portrait.

Bride-beautiful skin is achievable if you start early. Let us be your partner in helping you look and feel beautiful for your big day.
