Alas, spring has sprung! The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and the wedding season has taken off! This wedding season, brides and grooms alike are vowing to look their very best, as they should. It may just be the most important day of your life, but more so, the whole thing will be documented through high resolution photos and video. Have you ever looked through your parents wedding albums and wondered what in the world they were thinking? I have. My Caucasian mother wore a horrible taffeta dress with gigantic shoulder pads and caked on geisha makeup, while my father sported an offensively large mustache and flushed red skin. Looking through my parent’s album is always a fun adventure, but it sure made me think long and hard about how I want to look on my big day! Wedding albums are passed down from generation to generation, so I think it’s wise to make classic choices that will never go out of style. Though fashion trends are an unpredictable beast, one thing will always remain classically in-fashion and that is clear, even-toned, luminous skin.
Despite the wedding culture being very much bride-dominated, the pressure to look great on your wedding day is a wavering concern for both men and woman. Here are some of the most effective non-invasive pre-wedding treatments that get brides and grooms to-be, looking picture perfect for their day in the spotlight…and beyond.
LOOK FRESH AND SMOOTH
Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved for use by men and women to treat facial wrinkles and excessive sweating from the underarms, hands, feet and forehead. Botox treatment will leave your skin looking smoother, while providing an overall well rested appearance. Nobody wants to look tired on their big day! For excessive sweaters, Botox injections will leave you dry for the entire day and night. No more sweating through your tuxedo. A common injection site for men is the hairline, which prevents sweat from beading down the face. A common injection site for the bride is the underarm area, as excessive sweating can actually turn a white dress yellow in the underarm area. The Botox procedure works by harmlessly and temporarily freezing facial muscles, and sweat glands. Results will be seen 4 to 14 days after treatment and will last up to 4 months.
ADORN CLEAR LUMINOUS SKIN
Laser Genesis is the most versatile non-invasive laser technology to reduce the look of wrinkles, fine lines, excessive redness, and uneven skin texture for both men and woman. It works by stimulating the collagen production process. When it is combined with Photo Rejuvenation, the skin perfecting results are maximized. Photo Rejuvenation, also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) works by targeting dark pigmentation on the skin. If you suffer from sun spots, discoloration, or hyperpigmentation of any kind, this treatment will brighten your skin up in no time! Once you have finished the combined treatments, caking on makeup on your wedding day (or ever) won’t be necessary because there won’t be blotchiness and uneven skin tone to cover-up. And a groom with rosacea will no longer have to worry about their flushed red skin because after their treatments, the redness will be but a memory (with no photographic evidence). Results from both these treatments can be seen right away and will continue to get better and better. For maximum results, we recommend 3 sessions spread over 2 months before your big day.
AWAKEN YOUR YOUTHFUL EYES
Redensity II is a revolutionary dermal filler made especially for the under-eye tear trough area. It is the first nutrient rich dermal filler that actually promotes restructuring and cell regeneration. It is made of a hygrcopic gel that attracts very little water, is easily spreadable and unlike other fillers, results in minimal swelling after injection. The hollows, ridges and folds that form around your eyes as you age are a big concern for many brides and grooms because it can give you a tired look. No bride or groom wants to hear the phrase “you look tired” on their wedding day. Luckily Redensity II can instantly alleviate this tired look. Getting this treatment a few weeks before your big day will give you the assurance that the younger looking, bright eyed you will be attending your wedding with bells on! The results from the treatment can last up to 1 year.
