Your Dermatologist-Approved Timeline for Pre-Wedding Skin Treatments

Yes, please. Add the word “wedding” to the mix and you’ll find the entire idea of creating a prewedding day schedule confusing and even intimidating. The pressure to follow a “correct” timeline and ensure our skin doesn’t get rogue suddenly becomes too much for us.

Google, our loyal friend, isn’t shy about giving us its opinions on when and what treatments to schedule. However, Dr. Gerald Imber, a plastic surgeon, advised us to be cautious about such timelines. They don’t work for everyone. Because each person’s skin is unique, different treatments are required.

We’ve made it easy by providing a guideline you can use to help you plan your treatments. This is how to plan your treatments, and what questions to ask. It all starts a year in advance of your wedding.

12 Months

Make an appointment for your first visit at a reputable clinic. For someone who is looking for long-term care, facilities that specialize in cosmetic and anti-aging treatment are the best. Let them know that you’re looking for the best skincare plan to help you prepare for your big day.

Your first visit should be a focus on the desired results. Redness can be reduced? Do you want to reduce shine in your T zone? Be specific! Be specific!

Make sure to include the year and honeymoon you are getting married. When you have deep chemical peels, laser or IPL treatments, extreme heat, cold, sun exposure, wind chill, or microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (platelet rich plasma), you can be adversely affected by the effects of extreme heat, cold, and sun exposure.

Dr. Imber says, “If you are having a fall wedding you should avoid IPL or laser skin rejuvenation. Instead, focus on skin tightening. The No Peel Peel is a good option for your first appointment.

You can then undergo treatment that requires downtime such as:

  1. Deep chemical peel: This accelerates the skin’s exfoliation and promotes skin cell turnover. The result is smoother, glowing skin that is blemish-free and smoother.
  2. Microneedling with Platelet Rich plasma: This rather scary treatment is safe for almost everyone. This treatment uses cells from your own blood to encourage cell growth and even skin tone.

6 Months

Did you miss the opportunity to receive any of these treatments? You still have plenty of time for skin rejuvenating treatments such as microneedling with laser, PRP, and IPL. You may need to wait six months before you can shock your skin. After that, you will be able to get one to two more peels or microdermabrasion. You should concentrate on treatments that maximize the benefits of dermaplaning or chemical peels after skin sheds. At this stage, you should be healing and regenerating the skin.

3 Months

We are almost there! Dr. Imber says, “Because you are so close to the big date, concentrate on treatments that have been received and don’t introduce any new ones into your routine.” This is the perfect time to end your dermaplaning session.

1 Month

To really bring out that bridal glow, make sure you have had your last professional treatment. Avoid deep peels or extractions. Instead, focus on exfoliating and products that nourish and enrich the skin.
