No matter how long your engagement season, there is always time to proactively primp for your wedding day.
Form Derm Spa’s Janie Ward shares the ideal bridal beauty schedule for fiancées, wedding party, and guests alike.
12 Months: Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can take up to a year for lasting results, but once you’re smooth, only an annual touchup is required.
6-12 Months: Fat Freeze
CoolSculpting offers a simple, noninvasive solution to eliminate fat for a fully-toned body on the
6 Months: Laser Skin Treatments
Various laser treatments can promote long-lasting, baby-smooth skin. In-depth treatments should begin 6 months before the event for best results, but some treatments can heal in as little as 6 weeks.
4-6 Months: Medical-Grade Skincare
If experimenting with new products, begin a few months ahead of schedule to allow the skin time to balance. The Ward team recommends opting for a medically engineered formula, such as their Form Rx line, to get healthy skin alongside that flawless finish.
3-4 Months: Hydrafacial
See your spa professional for a customized monthly facial, beginning 4 months before your event. A final moisturizing treatment 1-2 days before the wedding will give the ideal glow.
6 Weeks: MicroNeedling
Customized treatments can include platelet-rich plasma and chemical peels, to heal skin in preparation for the walk down the aisle.
4 Weeks: Teeth Whitening
The best treatments are all natural, for a painless and healthy grin.
4-6 Weeks: Botox
Lift a brow, or relax a muscle or two to get yourself photo-ready. For those new to the needle, Ward says a 6-month trial may be in order.
1-2 Months: Fillers
Give your newly plumped pout 1-2 months of wiggle room to settle into the perfect shape.
4-5 Days: Mani/Pedi
Begin polishing and final touches the week of the wedding, so you are well-primped for both the wedding itself and the pre-ceremony parties.
3 Days: Waxing
Waxing treatments should take place at least two days before the big day, to allow any irritation to subside.
3 Days: Lash Extensions or Lifts
Whether you’re a tried-and-true extensions gal or just looking for a voluminous boost, touch up your lashes a few days before your celebration to keep them looking full and fresh.
2 Days: Tanning
Schedule your spray tan just a couple days before the wedding for a glow untarnished by other treatments (but be sure to allow it time to fade into your ideal shade). formdermspa.com
