One Month to Radiant Skin: 5 Essential Skin Care Treatments for Brides-to-Be
As a bride-to-be, you want to look and feel your best on your wedding day. That means paying extra attention to your skin care routine and considering professional skin care treatments to help you achieve a glowing, radiant complexion. Here are 5 skin care treatments our brides-to-be (and their MOB, MIL, Bridesmaids and more) love to ensure they have smooth, even, glowing skin on the big day!
RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. The microneedles create tiny punctures in the skin, which stimulate collagen production and trigger the skin’s natural healing process. The RF energy heats the skin, helping to tighten and firm the skin. RF Microneedling can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun d,amage.
The Potenza RF Microneedling treatment is by far the most popular girl in the school here at Camas Medspa. Unlike other RF Microneedling machines that I won’t name here (however, just ask next time we meet) the Potenza by Cynosure won’t make you running for the hills in pain.
The Potenza technology allows for a pain free treatment with little to no downtime while still enjoying the RF Microneedling benefits and results! As with most RF treatments, 3 rounds are suggested, however even after just 1 you will see great results!
Chemical peels have a scary name, but there are different levels peels so it is important to choose the one that is right for your skin, time-frame, and comfort level.
Chemical peels involve applying a solution to the skin to remove the outer layer of damaged skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter skin. There are different strengths of chemical peels available, depending on the level of exfoliation needed. Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation. However, they may require some downtime, so it is important to plan accordingly.
- Superficial or light chemical peels: These are the mildest form of chemical peel, which use a mild acid, such as alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) or beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), to exfoliate the outer layer of skin. Superficial peels are often used to treat mild acne, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and sun damage. They usually require little to no downtime, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
- Medium chemical peels: These peels penetrate deeper into the skin than superficial peels and use stronger acids, such as glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), to remove the outer and middle layers of skin. Medium peels are often used to treat more severe acne scarring, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. They may require several days of downtime, during which patients may experience redness, swelling, and peeling.
It’s important to note that the type of chemical peel that’s best for you will depend on your skin type, concerns, and desired results. The Advanced Estheticians at Camas Medspa can discuss which treatment is best for you during your initial consultation.
Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser technology to stimulate collagen production and resurface the skin, improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. It is a great option for brides who want to achieve more dramatic results and have some downtime to recover (1-10 days depending upon the treatment).
Below are our most popular Skin Resurfacing Treatments:
- Fraxel Laser Resurfacing
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
- Laser Genesis
- IPL/LG Combo
Each of these treatments uses lasers to address the outer layer of damaged skin, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells for a smoother, more even complexion. It’s important to consult with a licensed and experienced provider to determine which treatment is best for your specific skin concerns.
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive facial treatment that uses a sterile surgical blade to gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. This results in a smoother, brighter complexion and allows for better absorption of skin care products. Dermaplaning is a great option for brides who want to achieve a more even skin tone and a flawless makeup application on their wedding day.
This would be a great treatment to get about 2 weeks before your big day!
Amidst all the wedding preparations, brides often overlook one important detail—their hands. On your wedding day, your hands will be prominently featured in countless photographs, especially when showcasing your beautiful wedding ring. To ensure that your hands look as radiant as your smile, consider medspa treatments add-ons specifically designed for hand rejuvenation. Light peels can be an excellent option to improve skin texture and tone, diminishing any signs of sun damage or aging. Additionally, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments can effectively target and reduce sunspots or age spots, leaving your hands looking youthful and even-toned. Another fantastic treatment to consider is Laser Genesis, which stimulates collagen production, tightens the skin, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles on your hands. By including these medspa treatments in your bridal beauty regimen, you can confidently show off your stunning engagement ring with hands that match their splendor.
