6 Best “Before The Big Day” Skincare Treatments!

shutterstock_58558270As a bride-to-be, there is so much you have to do to prepare for the perfect wedding day. Guest lists, invitations, catering, scouting locations, and finding the dress that makes you feel like Cinderella are just half of it. With so much on your plate, it’s easy to forget to take a step back and pamper yourself. Unfortunately, when you stress it may take a toll on your skin.

Who doesn’t want to be a flawless, radiant bride? Especially when there will be pictures to commemorate your big day for years to come. NLI Med Spa is the nation’s largest medical spa, offering the best equipment in the business as well as leading skincare experts. These skincare professionals consult with you to determine exactly what your skin needs for your special day.

NLI Med Spa recommends starting skincare treatments a minimum of four months from your big day. This will give you time to experiment with top-of-the-line treatments as well as time to see rejuvenated results for yourself.

But just what are the best “big day” skincare treatments? The experts at NLI Med Spa have put together the top six services that will give you flawless, camera-ready skin just in time for your wedding day.

6. IPL Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation

IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacials are a light-based treatment that reduce and eliminate unwanted pigments on the skin. This can include sun damage, freckles, age spots, rosacea, and more. With photofacials, you won’t have to worry about covering up your imperfections with cakeloads of concealer. However, it is a series treatment, which means you will need more than one to see dramatic results.

Treatment time: Between 15 – 45 minutes

Best if performed 4-6 months before your wedding.

5. Fractional Laser Treatments

Fractional laser treatments are capable of restoring collagen while also helping eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, enlarged pores, and more. Using top-of-the-line laser technology, fractional laser treatments target both the dermal and epidermal layers of skin for revitalized and youthful results. Like photofacials, it may take a few treatments to see these dramatic results.

Treatment time: Between 25 – 45 minutes

Best if performed 1-3 months before your wedding.

4. eMatrix Skin Rejuvenation

eMatrix skin rejuvenation is perfect for brides searching for smoother, more youthful skin as well as a solution for fine lines and wrinkles. The eMatrix uses bipolar radiofrequency technology to improve the tone and texture in your skin on your face, neck or chest. With the eMatrix, people tend to see improvement in as little as three days. eMatrix skin rejuvenation is capable of providing the radiant results you typically gain with aggressive treatments but without a recovery period.

Treatment time: Between 25 – 45 minutes

Best if performed 1-3 months before your wedding.

3. MicroLaserPeels

The Sciton MicroLaserPeel is a skin resurfacing treatment designed to provide breakthrough results. With a MicroLaserPeel, you should see improvement in wrinkles, sun damage, tone and texture, stretch marks, discoloration, acne scars, and more. This treatment is also helping in restoring collagen and giving you long-lasting, renewed results for healthy, illuminating skin.

Treatment time: Between 30 – 50 minutes

Best if performed 3-6 months before your wedding.

2. Chemical Peels

The word “chemical” may sound scary, especially when it comes to your beauty routine before your big day. But did you know your body sheds dead skin cells once a month? Chemical peels help get rid of those dead skin cells so your body and generate fresh, healthy ones. When you eliminate those dead cells, you’re revealing brighter, more radiant skin. Chemical peels are also great for eliminating excess oil, certain scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and help improve tone and texture. Chemical peels also may vary in intensity, ranging from light, medium, and deep for your skin care needs.

Treatment time: Between 20 – 40 minutes

Best if performed 1 month before your wedding.

1. Oxygen Facial

Did you know tons of Hollywood celebrities gain oxygen facials before they hit the red carpet? Victoria Beckham and Madonna, just to name two. Oxygen facials not only deliver pure oxygen into your skin, but it also delivers an anti-aging serum that can be customized to your skincare needs. It creates your skin into a smoother, more flawless canvas so that when you apply your makeup, it gives you a silky, radiant appearance!

Treatment time: Between 30 – 50 minutes

Best if performed 1-2 days before your wedding.
