Spiders on the wedding dress? That’s good luck.
Carrying the bride over the threshold? According to legend, that’s the only way for the husband to protect her from demons.
Crying on her wedding day? Apparently, that foreshadows a happy marriage.
There are so many wedding superstitions that it can make your head spin. And while it can be fun to indulge in them (who doesn’t want to collect something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue?), chances are, doing so won’t have an effect on your wedding day.
What will? Proper planning.
At Beleza Plastic Surgery, we’ve devised a pre-wedding beauty regimen that’s sure to make every bride look even more beautiful. It requires a few months of advance planning, but the results are well worth it.
First: your injectable consultation.
There aren’t many treatments that are as simple, affordable or effective as injectables and fillers. At Beleza, we offer a variety of different injectable treatments, including Botox, Juvederm, Dysport, Voluma, and Restylane Silk. If you’re at all concerned about your wrinkles or crow’s feet showing up in your wedding photos, then injectables might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
During your injectable consultation, you’ll sit down with Dr. Wooten to go over your options. Each injectable is different, and she’ll help you to find the one that’s right for you. Getting the right filler well before your wedding day is smart. Not only will you give the filler time to achieve its full effect, but it will also help to prevent you from developing wrinkles and stress lines from all the anxiety that wedding planning can produce.
Don’t worry: if you feel like you haven’t gotten the results you want for your wedding day, we offer complimentary touch-ups.
Second: laser hair removal.
Your next focus should be getting rid of unwanted hair. Unless you are planning on honeymooning in the Arctic, you may want to be show a little leg, and who wants to spend their honeymoon attached to a razor. Laser hair removal is a lasting option that works, so that you can spend you honeymoon doing… other things!
While the extent of the laser hair removal procedure will depend on your unique situation, we usually see women targeting their underarms, legs, lips, chins and bikini lines. The result is an all-over elimination of unwanted hair that lasts for a long, long time.
Think about it: do you want to worry about shaving your legs on your (hopefully long and romantic) honeymoon?
Third: IPL photofacials and/or chemical peels.
Even younger brides often notice that their skin isn’t as glowing or youthful as they’d like it to be for their wedding day. To polish the skin and promote natural radiance, we usually recommend chemical peels and IPL photofacials.
Chemical peels work right on the surface of the skin, peeling away old, dead skin cells so that beautiful new skin can come to the forefront.
IPL photofacials, on the other hand, work underneath the surface to keep your skin looking healthy long after treatment. Like lasers, IPL uses light energy to eliminate blemishes on and under the skin. Not only that, but they’re extremely effective at promoting natural collagen growth, which in turn helps your skin to stay glowing for longer.
Together, chemical peels and IPL photofacials can take your skin from rough to refined in time for one of the biggest days in your life. So instead of focusing on superstitions to make your wedding great, make your own luck – get started on your pre-wedding beauty regimen today with Beleza Plastic Surgery!
