Love is in the air, and wedding season is here! Whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid, mother of a bride, or a groom or you simply have a stack of save-the-dates piling up for friends’ weddings this summer, now is the time to start preparing to look your best. We have a few favorite treatments that we think you’ll love, from simple skin refreshers to BOTOX® Cosmetic, offered at both of our plastic surgery practices in Idaho Falls and Jackson Hole.
Start planning these treatments now so you can make the most of your results! Here are our picks for wedding season and how far ahead you should get them.
HydraFacial MD®, at least 2 days before
We love this treatment, and our patients do too! The HydraFacial MD treatment replenishes skin with nutrients and moisture that it needs to look bright and healthy. It evens out the texture of your skin and gives it an incredibly soft, silky feel that you can’t get from normal skin care products. Your skin will thank you after this treatment, and you’ll really glow in all those wedding photos!
BOTOX Cosmetic, at least 7 to 10 days before
This classic treatment is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, creating a refreshed, rested appearance with little to no discomfort or downtime. It’s a tried and true option for members of our practice as well as many of our patients, who can attest to its results at targeting wrinkles around the eyes and brow caused by facial expressions. If you’re interested in trying BOTOX but still unsure, check out the experience of our recent guest blogger who received the treatment for the first time. It may be just the trick to keep your face smooth and youthful all summer — even at those bright outdoor events that will have you squinting.
Forever Young BBL™, at least a month before
If you’re interested in light and laser treatments, this is a great place to start. This treatment uses a handheld device that is placed against your skin and delivers low-frequency light energy to the deep layers of your skin to treat issues at their source. It can treat a variety of issues including acne, discoloration, rosacea, and texture concerns, and it can even be used for hair removal. What’s unique about Forever Young BBL is that it transforms the structure of skin cells, stimulating the production of fresh, new skin cells and collagen. While our practitioners will help you determine the best BBL treatment plan for your needs, the results you’ll see will include a glowing, even skin tone and reduction of problems such as age spots and fine lines. Plus, there is little to no discomfort — most people feel just a mild tingling sensation — and results can be enhanced with more than one treatment.
