You’ve bought the dress, booked the venue and locked in your hair and makeup artist but have you thought about what your wedding day skin will look like?
How healthy your complexion is plays a major part in how luminous you look on your wedding day. For example, congestion or dead skin build up affects how smoothly your makeup glides on. Dehydration and sun damage can also impact how radiant you appear.
At Artisan, we love working with ‘brides to be’. Our goal is to help them achieve beautiful wedding day skin as well as well into the future. We do this by planning well in advance. Starting three months out, we devise a bespoke treatment plan for you that is tailored to your skin goals.
Here’s our guide to helping you achieve a luminous wedding day glow:
Three months out
This is the time when we focus on treatments like Fraxel or Collagen Boost PDO smooth threads that require a bit of downtime but pack a powerful punch in terms of long-term results. Fraxel, which comes with around seven days of downtime, is a laser treatment that is excellent for resurfacing your skin. It’s ideal for removing pigmentation and reducing fine lines and wrinkles in just one annual treatment.
Collagen Boost PDO smooth threads meanwhile is an injectable treatment that involves injecting absorbable threads into your skin. As the threads dissolve, they stimulate new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. This results in a plumper and more youthful complexion. While the treatment only requires one to two days of downtime, we like to perform Collagen Boost well before your big day. This is because results occur gradually over time as the threads take effect. Results are long lasting though – not wearing off until after twelve months.
Two months out
This is when we start ramping things up with regular treatments that keep your skin in peak health. This could include a series of Laser Genesis or IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments to reduce pigmentation, scarring and redness and promote overall rejuvenation. Laser Genesis is a great, gentle laser treatment that stimulates collagen to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with additional heat generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. IPL meanwhile emits light into your skin to damage pigment cells and collapse dilated capillaries for a more even complexion.
We may also look to start you on skin needling treatments which penetrates your skin with micro-needles to create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then stimulates collagen and elastin to reduce fine wrinkles and fine lines and improve elasticity.
One month out
One month out from your big day, we focus on our treatments like anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections to allow enough time for your skin to settle and maximum results to appear before you walk down the aisle. Then, in the final weeks leading up to your wedding, we’ll give your skin a nice big boost of hydration through our HydraFacial MD treatment. Designed to deeply hydrate your skin, our signature HydraFacial treatment is not your everyday facial. It features a unique soft suction headpiece which removes dirt from your pores, deeply cleanses, and infuses your skin with rich antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, peptides and other essential nutrients.
