Do Not Forget to Add Beauty to Your Wedding Checklist!

Of course every bride is beautiful! She has been planning this special day for months-the dress, cake, band, and the honeymoon just to name a few of the many details on her wedding “Checklist.” She feels ready and excited when the big day finally comes.

THEN the photos arrive! Just as soon as the pictures are in the brides hands…my phone starts to ring with new appointments! Unhappy brides and very often the mothers of the brides calling for help. Disappointed at the way their face looked “unrefeshed” in the wedding photos, wondering why they didn’t add seeing a Doctor or dermatologist to their wedding checklist!

Why do Brides feel so scared to do “things” before the wedding? Aside from your hair and makeup, there is more generic fear about “having something done” as well as a fear that they will not look like themselves. Most of this fear comes from misinformation and not choosing the right Doctor to guide and council you. With the right Doctor and guidance the bride and Mother of the bride could feel relaxed that they will be just restoring their natural best! I always tell my patients that refreshing their look prior to their wedding or should be as important as the cake, photographer, dress and everything else!

So, I decided to write about Building Beauty confidence for your Wedding. My goal is to improve every brides appearance, reduce fear and most importantly, with a steady hand of reassurance help her achieve the look that will highlight her own best assets on that Special Day!

You see, the secret is not just looking great on that day, its looking great every day. So, when it comes to medical aesthetics, how should the bride prepare and what should she expect? Lets take a quick look at how to schedule treatments and a few “do’s and don’ts” before the wedding.

7 Best Dermatology & Aesthetic Clinics in Bandung - What's New Bandung

1. Laser Hair Removal can take several months to work and you won’t typically see results till after the third session, though results may vary between people. Schedule up to 3-4 months prior to the wedding.
2. If you want fuller lips, remember it can take up to 2 weeks before everything ‘settles down” after the procedure. I recommend doing this 1 month before. We use either Restylane or Juvederm for the enhancement. With our approach, this is essentially painless. Schedule 1 month before wedding
3. Chemical peels and microdermabrasions: Your skin will look refreshed and radiant before the big day. 增肌減脂機 We recommend doing this 1 month before your special day.
4. Botox takes 3-5 days to work. However, it case of a Botox complication, we strongly advise not doing it too close to the date. This is why we generally recommend Botox 6 weeks before and if you need a light touch up of more Botox; you can do it 3 weeks before, though individual cases vary. Schedule 1-2 months before wedding
5. Sun-Damage: A Photofacial is the catch phrase when it comes to sun damage. This is a very broadly used term for a certain technology that helps reduce redness and helps reduce the irregular look of photo damaged skin. Our office sees a lot of patients that have had injuries at other laser facilities. Given my research in lasers, I have been somewhat of an “unfortunate following” in this regard. In truth, this is the trickiest technology on the market, and when our office sees patients who have been injured with “IPL” or Intense Pulsed Light treatments, most of the time these injuries were avoidable. The results of a Photofacial are great, and we love doing these, but be sure that the person doing this procedure understands the technology and can deal with any adverse events that might occur. We will do Photofacials 6 weeks before the event. Schedule 2 months before wedding.

My suggestion is you choose a doctor with years of experience or someone that has come highly recommended to you by a friend or family member. Don’t start with someone “new” that close to your wedding. Do ask questions. Don’t bargain hunt when it comes to your face. In many cases, you get what you pay for. Don’t’ chose someone who is $50 or $100 cheaper, but lacks the aesthetic experience or aesthetic eye, both of which are crucial when it come to your appearance. And remember, every bride is beautiful!
