From medical facials to customizable bridal packages, Skin Savvy Medical Aesthetics and Laser Center is sure to help you de-stress and feel your absolute best for your special day. You probably still have lots of skin care questions, and that’s why we asked aesthetician and med spa, Skin Savvy, to answer a short Q&A to let us in on all the tips and tricks to help brides glow with radiance on their wedding day. Read on!
What are the pros to prepping your skin leading up to the wedding?
With all eyes on you, not to mention photos that will live on in infamy, you’ll want to have a flawless face with that healthy, glow-within look that makeup just can’t replicate! Everyone deserves to feel gorgeous and confident on their big day, and a good, pre-wedding skin prep plan will help achieve just that.
When should a bride begin her skin prep?
Prepping your skin leading up to the big day will ensure that you look luminous during all wedding festivities and for all of the photos that come with it! Prep window will vastly depend on the bride’s skin concerns and beauty goals! If a bride has multiple skin concerns such as pigmentation, redness, acne, fine lines or wrinkles, 6 months before the wedding is an ideal timeframe. On the other hand, if the bride doesn’t have any major skin concerns and is primarily focused on improving skin’s overall health, addressing some fine lines and wrinkles and maybe adding just a touch of lip filler treatment to get that perfect “kissable” pout, then starting 3 months before the big day is advisable.
What steps/products should every bride work into their skincare routine?
Beginning a daily beauty regimen that includes exfoliating, cleansing and moisturizing morning and night can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. Finding a routine that works for your skin is key! You can do this using the old-fashioned trial-and-error method, but it’s also worth seeking advice from a skin expert you trust. Skin Savvy licensed estheticians recommend medical-grade products as they are supported by scientific research and are specifically formulated with bioavailable ingredients for the best results! Top three products every bride should use? A potent vitamin C serum, a broad-spectrum SPF and a retinol cream.
What services should they seek out from an esthetician/skin care pro?
To get your skin looking flawless, we recommend starting with a Photofacial treatment that will address superficial pigment, sun damage and redness as well as stimulate collagen and elastin. Next on the list is the Skin Savvy Signature Hydrafacial! Hydrafacials simultaneously cleanses, exfoliates and infuses the skin with antioxidants and hydrating ingredients that results in beautifully hydrated, resurfaced, glowing skin. Finally, a Microtox treatment will get you looking refreshed and relaxed by targeting frown and forehead lines as well as give you a widely-beloved brow lift.
What are the most popular treatments brides partake in?
To boost the pre-ceremony glow, most brides opt for a series of Signature Hydrafacials with a light chemical peel add-on, as well as a botox and lip filler treatment. We’ve also been told that there is no better excuse than your wedding (and honeymoon) to treat yourself to laser hair removal!
What is Skin Savvy’s top skincare advice for brides?
Planning a wedding can be very stressful, but getting your skin ready for the big day doesn’t have to be! Starting (or revamping) a wedding beauty regimen is a great way to practice some self-care, allowing you to de-stress ahead of your nuptials. Finding a skin expert you trust to carefully design a personalized treatment plan for you will make the wedding skin prep a breeze!
