It's a fact: every bride is beautiful, every groom is glowing. But if you want a little help boosting your skin for your big day, there is nothing wrong with taking advantage of everything modern skin aesthetics has to offer.
You may already have some skin concerns you'd like to address, or perhaps you're unsure what's currently out there. Either way, Me Clinics are on hand to share some of their top recommended treatments for your best wedding day skin.
6 Pre-Wedding Skin Treatments To Explore
The following treatments are great for brides and grooms interested in non-invasive, low downtime options to help them optimise their skin, ready for the big day:
A 'Thread Lift' is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift that provides a subtle, visible lift in targeted areas such as the neck, jowls, jawline, cheeks or under eye area.
By boosting the body's natural healing response, collagen production is promoted, creating a brighter, 'plumped' look that counteracts sagging skin caused by the ageing process.
Non-invasive, the treatment has minimal downtime and results develop gradually, lasting for up to three years.
2. Anti-Wrinkle Injections & Dermal Fillers
A popular choice for brides and grooms-to-be, anti-wrinkle injections are a great way to give your skin a little boost, ready for wedding photos.
Anti-Wrinkle injections are injected into the muscles of affected wrinkle areas - typically the forehead and around the eyes. The injections cause the muscles in these areas to relax, so the skin no longer wrinkles or furrows - creating a smoother complexion.
Dermal fillers are similar in that they help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume in the face caused by ageing. Dermal fillers are versatile and often used to improve the plumpness of cheeks, lips, and mouth lines.
Dermal fillers can also treat acne scars and skin depressions and support recontouring to create a more even face shape.
Both treatments are non-invasive and require minimal downtime, but optimal results may require multiple injections and develop gradually over time, so make sure you plan in advance.
3. Double Chin Reduction
Even the strictest diets and workout routines won't help reduce the fat that often gets deposited around the chin, but there is an answer that works.
Double chin removal is a non-surgical injectable treatment using fat-dissolving injections that eliminate unwanted fat calls in as little as 15 minutes. The procedure is relatively painless but can result in some expected swelling as the injections get to work.
In 2-6 sessions, you can achieve a sculpted jawline, but downtime between sessions is 5-6 weeks, so again, plan ahead for best results.
4. Fraxel Laser Skin Treatments
If acne scars, hyperpigmentation, age spots or open pores rate highly in your skin concerns, this could be the perfect treatment for you.
Fraxel Laser treatment involves thousands of tiny laser means that penetrate deeply into the dermis (skin). These small laser beams reach into the middle layer of the dermis, removing damaged areas and promoting the growth of fresh, healthy skin.
The treatment is also excellent for uneven skin colouring, sun damage, and fine wrinkles.
5. Vein Treatments
Another common skin complaint that many experience as they age is the appearance of veins close to the surface of their skin. These can appear anywhere on the body - including the face.
Facial veins, spider veins, prominent capillaries and skin redness can be unsightly and impact your confidence. Facial vein treatments are available in two options: Facial Vein Sclerotherapy and Laser Vein Treatments (usually for those with light skin for whom sclerotherapy hasn't been effective.)
Both are non-invasive and require very minimal downtime.
6. Mole & Skin Tag Removal
Outside of your big day, it's essential to have moles and any other skin anomalies checked regularly. Even if your doctor doesn't determine to be suspicious, having them removed can significantly boost your skin confidence.
Mole and skin tag removal can be undertaken in several ways, depending on the type, size and location of the mole or skin tag. Many involve no or very minimal scarring and minimal downtime, but this might not always be the case.
A consultation to determine which treatment is best for you is a great way to explore your options.
