With all the excitement and hubbub of wedding planning, brides shouldn’t overlook taking care of themselves, especially their skin! When it comes to establishing your pre-wedding beauty routine, you’ll want skin products and treatments that provide effective solutions targeted at various skin concerns and give you that radiant complexion fit for a bride. Whether you struggle with cystic acne, acne scars, redness and inflammation, sunspots, or fine lines and wrinkles, there are laser treatments available in top aesthetic clinics in Singapore that will address those concerns.
With laser treatments, it’s important to start early and plan 6 months ahead of your big day to achieve satisfactory results and you can put your best self forward. Here are some of the treatments you can do as part of your pre-wedding routine when you visit an aesthetic doctor in Singapore:
6 months before the wedding
While you deserve to shine in the spotlight during your wedding day, these spotlights could also work against you and emphasise skin imperfections. For those with open pores or acne scars, you can consider acne treatments like the Fractional CO2 treatment. This five-month course consists of monthly treatments that will smoothen your scars and leave the skin radiant for your big night.
The Infini Fractional Radiofrequency is an effective lifting procedure that goes up to 3.5mm deep into the skin, unlike superficial RF treatments in beauty salons. As such, it can effectively tighten the skin and stimulate deep collagen production in the dermis layer of the skin to given an overall rejuvenated appearance to the face. It is a great acne scar treatment as well so you can tackle dull skin and depressedacne scars all in one procedure.
Another lifting procedure is the Thermage, a non-invasive RF therapy that has no downtime. It uses high energy radiofrequency to help stimulate new collagen regeneration to smooth, life, and tighten skin for a youthful appearance.
3 months before the wedding
This is the time to only get simple face contouring procedures done. Temporary fillers like Skinboosters are suitable for brides to add volume to the face, plump up fine lines and smooth out wrinkles. For example, Juvederm Volite is a filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by our body. It can help to reduce fine lines, increase skin elasticity and improve shape of the face, without a single incision or downtime. You can also try procedures aimed at contouring parts of your face such as a nose threadlift, or non-surgical nose job, that can help you achieve straighter, higher and a more defined nose profile.
Laser treatments for acne such as the Q-switched laser and Edge CO2 laser are great in gently stimulating collagen in the skin while removing spots, blemishes, and pigmentation, and evening out the skin tone. Cystic acne treatments include the Vbeam laser where it helps to reduce inflammation, prevent re-occurrence and promote scar healing. You can observe changes to your skin after a few sessions for a better glow and radiance as well as a smoother skin.
1 month before the wedding
Your big day is almost here! By now, you will have reaped the reward of those treatments and your skin is wedding-ready. Continue your weekly laser treatment routine that you started months ago. Avoid doing any new laser treatments or those with downtime, that may introduce inadvertent side effects like breakouts or bruises.
Treat yourself to gentle hydrating facials such as the HydraFacial treatment, a resurfacing procedure that exfoliates, extracts and hydrate the skin. Also suitable for acne prone skin, it will reduce the appearance of acne and prevent it from exacerbating. By removing impurities and dead skin cells while introducing solutions with beneficial properties, the result is an improved skin elasticity and suppleness. Now you can walk down the aisle with confidence and look your best.
