Big Day Beauty Timeline
August, 2012 - Issue #94
We all know that every soon-to-be-Mrs. wants to look and feel like the most beautiful woman in the world on her wedding day. Every blushing bride has a few things they would like to improve about themselves before they walk down that aisle, and why shouldn't they be able to?

Whether the goal is to lose a few pounds, even-out skin tone, or do away with unwanted hair or veins, you can follow this guide to feel your best on your big day - and the honeymoon, too!

SKIN
Brides who are especially concerned about their complexion appearing radiant may want to have a microdermabrasion peel about three days before their wedding. The peel is designed to exfoliate the top layer of skin to reveal a glowing complexion. Brown spots and mild acne scars usually disappear after a microdermabrasion treatment to create a fresher, younger appearance.

Another option for reducing redness and uneven skin tone is photorejuvenation. Pulses of light are delivered to the skin's surface during this procedure. The light is absorbed by the tissue, which stimulates collagen production in the skin. This procedure is very effective at reducing rosacea as well as wrinkles and fine lines. Most patients undergo a series of six photorejuvenation treatments, about one month apart. The final treatment should be no less than three weeks before the wedding so the skin is healed and looking its best for the big day.

WEIGHT LOSS
Most women are at least a bit unsatisfied with their weight and would prefer to lose five to 20 pounds before they slip into that white dress. For planning purposes, it's important for brides to start a diet and exercise program at least six months before their wedding so they have time to lose the weight they want without crash dieting or putting their health at risk. Final dress fittings should be complete at least two weeks before the wedding, so brides should try to stay the same size after their final fitting.

Visiting a dietitian can help a bride construct an eating plan that fits her lifestyle, especially if she is planning to lose 50 pounds or more. If the bride is looking to make a big change, many cosmetic or bariatric procedures such as liposuction or the Lap-Band can help a woman get that wedding-ready body she can't otherwise achieve with proper diet and exercise.

HAIR REMOVAL
Most brides don't want to worry about the hair on their underarms or legs on the wedding day or honeymoon. Since shaving only lasts a few days, many brides can find solace in laser hair removal procedures that get rid of unwanted hair on their face and body permanently. It may take between three and five sessions for the hair to be completely gone, so brides are encouraged to have their hair removal process complete at least three months before their wedding day.

Getting into wedding shape is one of the highest priorities on the list of many brides to be. A well-planned diet and exercise regimen along with some extra help from a skilled plastic surgeon can get every bride to the altar looking brilliant and beautiful.

"At DermaCure, we love the results that
HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS
such as Restylane and Juvederm products give our patients. The result is soft and natural - and can last up to a year. Dr. Ingber skillfully injects
all fillers PERSONALLY and really understands facial musculature and anatomy. We advise that patients should schedule their treatment two or more weeks prior to the event, due to a small chance of some bruising in the injected areas,"
