  Begin booking facials every 6 weeks leading up to the event date. When performed by a medical aesthetician, facials are like a “workout” for your face— and are highly effective in renewing the skin and giving you a clear/hydrated complexion. Extractions are performed if needed and your aesthetician will analyze your skin and make recommendations for a home-care regimen(based on your budget) to get your skin ready and glowing for the big day!

  Try Botox for the first time! (Lasts an average of 3 months) Botox causes temporary weakening of muscle movement to any area applied. It is most commonly injected into the forehead muscles and “crows feet” area to prevent wrinkling. Botox also causes temporary weakening of facial sweat glands, making it perfect for anyone getting married in hot/humid climates. 

  Ask your esthetician about bikini waxing if interested, as you need to start 2-3 months before your special event so your hair follicles can get used to the waxing cycle.

√  If you’re considering micro-blading for your eyebrows, now is the best time!
