The day that comes to mind when you want to look your absolute best? Your wedding day! As a bride myself, I’m finding ways to optimize my bridal look before my day. Here’s a break-down of treatments I’ve been loving at Faces+.
Whether you like them subtly enhanced or full out pouty, lip fillers enhance your look. I have had them for years so I know what kind of look and shape I’m comfortable with. My recommendation is to try one syringe of fillers for your first time. The difference might shock you but trust me, you get used to it and will want more. Swelling and bruising are common post-injection so make sure you don’t plan any events right after and give yourself ample time to heal and the filler to settle.
Micro-botox injections are great for when you’re just getting botox for preventative reasons. A couple of units in specific problem areas will keep your skin looking smooth but not overly frozen so you remain natural. Opt for the full injections if you have more prominent lines but finding a good injector is key to liking the way you look. Try it out way ahead of any events and do a refresher treatment when it gets closer to the event times.
The key to any bridal glow is having great skin. Getting on a monthly facial schedule months before your wedding date gives your skin plenty of time to look glowy, brighter and clear. I’ve been getting monthly oxygen facials and exfoliation treatments and it’s helped give me a smooth canvas for makeup which makes it look all the more flawless in photos.
Side profiles can be tricky to love, especially if you have a genetic double-chin effect when photos are being taken. We have solutions for that! Kybella is an acid that breaks down fat underneath the chin and gives you more definition. This one takes a while to work its magic and in the meantime, you will be swollen – like a bullfrog. Plan ahead for this one. More than one treatment may be required but your injector will make the right recommendation. For more immediate results, chin liposuction is a quick procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. After a month of downtime, you see a defined jawline you never knew you had.
This warm plumping laser, with 0 downtime helps stimulate collagen production over time to keep your pores tight, skin plump and facial tone and texture even. It’s one of my favorites to do once a month just to keep the collagen flow going and it really gives your skin a plumping effect. It’s one of our only lasers that work on all skin types on the Fitzpatrick scale (which is great for me because I’m olive toned).
It’s important to note that everyone’s bridal beauty routine is different. It’s all about choosing the things that mean the most to you. There is no better time than before your wedding to make an investment in the areas you’ve always wanted to be treated.
