3 Quick Non-Surgical Treatments To Do Before Your Wedding
June 16, 2015
Your wedding day is probably one of the biggest and most important days of your life. That’s more added pressure to look next to flawless on the day when you tie the knot in front of your friends and family (and your partner of course!)
Starting that new diet or working out even harder is a given once that ring is on your finger. But what if you want to treat other concerns that can’t be solved through just food and exercise? Thankfully, you have plenty of non-surgical treatments that are available to you. The beauty of these procedures is that you won’t be spending your time resting and recovering—these treatments require no downtime so you can go back to planning your wedding. Read on to see what you can do about common concerns you might have and what you can do about them before your big day.
Concern #1: Wrinkles
Got some wrinkles around your eyes or lips that you’d rather not flaunt in your wedding photos? Then consider Botox injections. Botox injections paralyze and relax these lines you typically see between your brows, on your forehead and around your lips. These treatments take a few minutes to perform and will give you results that last up to 6 months. It takes up to a week for the final results of these injections to settle in. Consider getting Botox Injectables at least 1 month before your wedding date.
Concern #2: Uneven skin complexion
You want to look like a glowing and blushing bride, not a blotchy one. Unfortunately, not everyone has even and clear skin. One solution to an uneven skin complexion is intense pulsed light treatments like a FotoFacial. A FotoFacial uses radiofrequency, intense pulsed light and infrared energy to target skin concerns like brown spots, spider veins and blemishes. These treatments target the deep layer of your skin, which all leads to production of new collagen. Since you’ll see the best results after 5 treatments (each treatment should be performed 3 weeks apart), start your FotoFacials at least 4 months before your wedding.
Concern #3: Stubborn fat
Maybe all that working out and dieting isn’t giving you the results you want. Or you feel pressed for time to make noticeable changes in your body before the big day. By combining non-surgical fat reduction treatments with a healthy diet and workout regime, you’ll be sure to fit into your dress the way you want. Here are just a couple of treatments you can look into:
BodyFx treatments use radiofrequency energy for permanent fat reduction and cellulite improvement. The RF energy tightens the skin and high-tech voltage electrical pulses results in permanent death of unwanted fat cells. After combined treatments, patients can expect 2-6 centimetres of permanent fat reduction in the abdomen area and 3-5 centimetres of fat reduced from the inner and outer thighs. You should complete 6 treatments—each one is performed once a week. Start BodyFx treatments 2 months before your wedding.
CoolSculpting treatments use cold temperatures to freeze and disable your fat cells. You can see 2-3 cm of fat reduction after just one treatment. You can get 2-3 CoolSculpting treatments, but keep in mind that each treatment should be performed every 6-12 weeks. A CoolSculpting treatment takes 1 hour to complete. Your final results are permanent, as long as you maintain your weight. Start CoolSculpting treatments 5 months before your wedding.
