Skin Treatments Before Your Wedding: How Long To Wait

2020 was a heartbreaking year for the couples with weddings and civil partnerships postponed and cancelled across the country. But hold on to your hats, because things are starting to look better for 2021! If you are a bride or groom-to-be and you're wondering how best to stagger your skin-loving treatments ahead of the big day, we've got you covered. Introducing our roadmap to your glowing complexion.
6 months pre-wedding: SkinPen

SkinPen is a microneedling treatment which is perfect as a less invasive skin booster. It works by creating low level trauma to the surface of the skin and encouraging an immune response. The skin then heals and new dermal tissues and blood vessels form, remodelling the scar tissue to leave the skin smoother with improved texture and a visible reduction in scarring.

If this is a treatment of interest to you, we recommend scheduling your SkinPen consultation 6 months prior to your wedding. We usually recommend 3-6 initial sessions spaced 30 days apart so preparation is key. What’s more, after just 24 hours you should notice a dewy glow to your complexion.

3 months pre-wedding: First Profhilo treatment and skincare consultation

Who doesn’t want dewy, hydrated skin on their special day? Profhilo is the queen of hydration with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid on the market, working to effectively stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, leaving skin smoother, brighter and younger looking.

Known as an injectable moisturiser, Profhilo takes around 2 months to fully take effect so we recommend preparing your skin in advance with your first session 3 months before you’re due to get hitched. This is also a great time to get your skincare in order. We now offer face to consultations with our VIVA nurse, Eva and Carrie who will assess your skin and prescribe a tailored skincare regime designed around YOU.

2 months pre-wedding: Second Profhilo treatment

Profhilo treatments come in pairs so you will need a second procedure around 4 weeks after the first. Both sessions together will work to boost hydration, improve skin laxity and also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It will take around two month for the hyaluronic acid to really do it’s work and for maximum results to develop.

1 month pre-wedding: Anti-wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers

Whether you are looking to refresh tired eyes, define the jawline, address asymmetry, lift the cheekbones or subtly plump the lips, we have the filler treatment for you.

1 month pre-wedding is the ideal time for a filler procedure because it allows enough time for residual swelling to subside, the product to completely settle and to ensure you are completely happy with results.

Similarly, if you are considering anti-wrinkle injections, we recommend allowing around 4 weeks between your initial treatment and your big day. Anti-wrinkle injections take 2 weeks to develop so it’s important not leave this procedure too late.

2 weeks pre-wedding: AQUAGOLD

AQUAGOLD Fine Touch uses 20 tiny 24 karat gold plated micro-needles to administer a skin loving cocktail, including a generous dose of hyaluronic acid and wrinkle relaxer. This treatment is a great option for those looking to get that last-minute pre-wedding healthy glow and can be used around 2 weeks before the big event.
