Wedding Skin Prep: The Best Med Spa Treatments to Get Before Your Wedding

Aesthetics / October 5, 2021

On your wedding day, all eyes (and cameras) are on you. 

No matter if you want to treat sun damage, tighten skin on your face and body, eliminate stubborn fat, or fight lines & wrinkles, you deserve to feel absolutely confident. 

Entre Nous Aesthetics is Menlo Park’s go-to place for looking and feeling your best for every special occasion. Brides and grooms alike visit us to help create a personalized skin care plan for the months leading up to their event. Not to mention, mothers of the bride and bridesmaids deserve pampering, too!

Read on for our top recommended skin treatments to prepare your skin (and body!) to say “I dew” ✨

The Best Pre-Wedding Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

Focused specifically on skin quality? A medical spa can help you make the right investments in your short-term and long-term skincare routine. This includes recommendations about professional treatments, but also helping you build your at-home regimen with the right products and routine. This will help extend and maintain the results of those in-office treatments for as long as possible.

To start, here are a few of our favorites to help you rejuvenate your skin and prepare for your big event.

Profound Microneedling

Looking for skin tightening to help bring back your youthful features? Microneedling alone can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and smaller areas of loose skin. When combined with radiofrequency energy, the heat stimulates collagen and elastin production, which in turn, tightens and smoothes the skin. 

Profound RF microneedling is clinically proven to create smooth, younger-looking skin with only 1 nonsurgical treatment. It’s a fan-favorite among our clients to help rejuvenate, brighten, and tighten the skin on the face, neck, chest, and anywhere else on the body they’d like to target!

IPL

Have you heard of a “photofacial”? It’s one of our favorite treatments to utilize in our clients’ pre-wedding beauty preparation plan! This anti-aging technology uses photo energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin to reduce redness, tighten the skin, and even out your complexion.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing can be one of the most effective ways to prepare your skin for your wedding. Note: It should be done well in advance to give your skin time to heal! There are ways to speed up this process, but on average, you should aim to start your resurfacing sessions between 3 to 6 months before your wedding day, if possible.

Facials

From Aquagold to the HydraFacial, Entre Nous has a variety of technologies and techniques available to customize facials that will leave your skin glowing. We’ll be sure to time your appointments thoughtfully in order to help you achieve peak results on the day of your actual wedding!

Mole & Skin Tag Removal

If you want any small-to-medium-sized moles removed from the skin on your face, neck, chest, arms, or hands, before the big day, not every med spa offers this service! At Entre Nous, we can use electrodesiccation, cryotherapy, shaving, or snipping to rid you of these pesky lesions.

Scar Removal

If the only thing standing in your way of the perfect portrait is a childhood scar, acne scarring, or surgical scars, fear no more! There are a few technologies we can utilize to help you drastically reduce the appearance of scar tissue anywhere on the body. 

Using our state-of-the-art V-beam Prima Laser, the laser specialists at Entre Nous Aesthetics can effectively break up the irregular scar tissue and encourage new collagen production, promoting more uniform tissue growth. This process provides both aesthetic and functional improvement of the scar.

The Best Injectables to Get Before Your Wedding

Keep in mind that injectables can be your best friend or your worst enemy on your wedding day. It all comes down to the person providing it! 

If your injector doesn’t properly plan your injectable treatments based on your wedding timeline, it can leave you in the middle of the healing process (e.g., visible swelling or bruising) on the day of. 

In general, make sure you budget at least 4 to 6 weeks to complete the healing process for any of these injectables, just to be safe.

Wrinkle Relaxers

You’ve probably heard of Botox, but that’s just ONE of the wrinkle-relaxing products we have available. In the aesthetics world, we call these “neuromodulators.” We inject them into areas with fine lines or deep creases to help create smooth, wrinkle-free skin.

Dermal Fillers

There are so, so many different filler options available to help you prepare your skin for your wedding day. Here are a few of the main concerns we can address using injectable fillers!

PDO Threads

PDO Threads can help you lift and build collagen in the brows, neck, eyes, cheeks, and jowls for a natural, smooth, plump look! It’s a non-surgical treatment performed in-office and continues to yield results over time, even after the threads have dissipated.

Kybella

Hoping to reduce the appearance of your double chin? Kybella is an injectable specifically designed for this very purpose! Keep in mind, Kybella takes a bit more time for results to show than these other wedding go-tos. You should start treatment at least 12 weeks before your wedding to see the best results!

Best Pre-Wedding Body Contouring Treatments 

Want to improve on your silhouette to better fit your mermaid-style dress? Finding the right body contouring specialist is key. It’s not as easy as Googling “body sculpting near me” and going with the cheapest provider. A body contouring specialist should have years of experience with handling these highly advanced devices AND plenty of before-and-after photos to back up their qualifications.

Here are the most popular body contouring treatments we perform for brides, bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride.

QWO

QWO can be especially helpful for brides and bridesmaids planning to wear dresses made with thin material. If you feel self-conscious about cellulite around your bum, QWO is actually the ONLY FDA-approved injectable to treat it!

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting uses a technique called “cryotherapy” to target and freeze pockets of unwanted fat cells. This can help smooth areas like the hips and waist, minimize fat around the arms and back, and even reduce fat underneath the chin!

EMSCULPT

If you want toned results quickly, Emsculpt uses electromagnetic energy to produce the highly efficient muscle toning in the abs and buttocks. This can compliment your gym routine to further slim and tone areas that might be of emphasis in your dress.

Additional Wedding Beauty Tips to Prep Your Skin

Permanent makeup can help prevent your picture-perfect look from sweating or melting off as you dance the night away. Our goal with permanent makeup is to enhance your natural features, through treatments like a lash lift and brow lamination.

If you’re hopping on the boudoir photos trend, or your dress has a slit, you might consider starting laser hair removal sooner than later. This process takes time, as it can only treat the visible hair at the surface of the skin. Depending on where you go, their LHR device can take as many as 12 sessions for the best results. However, at Entre Nous, you can see results after just a few sessions!

Groom wedding prep 

The perfect pre-wedding gift for your future hubby? Get him started on anti-aging products as soon as possible to help him feel confident on his big day. 

And if he’s willing, you can even bring him along to your appointment for a skincare consultation to learn about potential aesthetic treatments designed just for him. For example, one of our most popular pre-wedding aesthetic preparations for men is working on regrowing hair in areas of thinning and/or a hairline receding hairline. After all, it’s his day too!

The best last-minute treatments before your wedding

Don’t have months to get ready for your wedding? That’s okay! We can help provide some last-minute help with treatments like:

  • Dermaplaning, to remove peach fuzz and dead skin cells to help your make-up go on more smoothly
  • The HydraFacial, to clear out the pores and reduce acne and redness.
  • A customized facial tailored to your unique skin.
