The Ultimate Pre-Wedding Beauty Timeline

In the months leading up to your wedding day, there’s much to plan—including your beauty regimen to ensure you walk down the aisle glowing head to toe. Not sure where to start? The Skin Center has it down to a science. “We ideally tell our patients to come in for a bridal beauty skincare consultation the minute they start planning their wedding. Some aesthetic treatments take several months to see results, so you don’t want to leave it to the last minute,” says Angela Crist, an aesthetic clinician at The Skin Center. Here’s her recommended pre-wedding beauty timeline to achieve gorgeous glowing skin worthy of the big day—and all those wedding photos that’ll be cherished for an eternity. 

9 Months Before the Big Day

Softening acne scars, fading hyperpigmentation and improving overall skin texture can take multiple courses over a few months for the most dramatic reveals. Our experts recommend starting with the treatments that need some time to really show results. “Our brides-to-be often request laser resurfacing and broadband light (BBL) treatments to reduce pigmentation, even out skin tone, and create smoother, more radiant skin,” says Crist. Most patients need two to three sessions, spaced about three months apart. Other treatments to consider at this time include laser hair removal, skin-firming Ultherapy, and microneedling to fade scars and improve collagen production. The results? A radiant luster, even tone, and flawless makeup application.

Want your wedding dress to fit like a glove? “I ask my bridal patients to wear their wedding dress during a body sculpting consultation so I can see exactly what they want to reduce unwanted fat. It’s often a little overspill on a strapless dress, love handles that are more visible in a backless dress, underarms, or the stomach,” says Maranda Rose, who specializes in CoolSculpting Elite. This FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment is scientifically proven to eliminate up to 25% of fat cells for good. Most patients require two sessions, spaced four to 6 weeks apart. Even better? CoolSculpting has little to no downtime. It has become one of our patient favorite treatments for their wedding day and beyond.

3 Months Before the Big Day

For soft, plump lips worthy of the “You can now kiss the bride” moment, consider filler. Whether your aesthetic clinician recommends Juvederm, Restylane, or any of The Skin Center’s other FDA-approved dermal fillers, you’ll notice a fuller, more sensual pout and smoother lips. Made of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers add soft, natural-looking volume to your features while utilizing an ingredient already found naturally in the human body. In addition to enhancing your lips, filler can also plump up your cheeks and define your jawline.

1 Month Before the Big Day

Now that you’re really close to glow time, we recommend Botox, which visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles. The Skin Center has been a trusted destination for Botox since the wrinkle-reducing injectable was first approved by the FDA over 20 years ago. In fact, out of over 40,000 providers, we are ranked a Top 10 Botox provider in the country by Allergan Aesthetics, the maker of Botox. Another benefit of Botox? Smoother skin also looks more radiant and has fewer creases for makeup to cake up in. Botox takes about 10 days to fully kick in. 

Two Weeks Before the Big Day

To really enhance your skin’s overall radiance as we get closer to your day, we recommend a DiamondGlow. This treatment simultaneously exfoliates, extracts, and infuses the skin with advanced serums to improve overall skin health, tone, and texture. You will absolutely love how radiant this treatment will make you, as well as how it complements the other treatments in your pre-wedding day game plan. Your skin will glow bright like that diamond on your ring finger.
