Types of Facials : Get Before Your Wedding
Even if you maintain a skincare routine, getting a facial before your wedding is important for prepping your skin for a face full of makeup.
From hitting the gym to getting your hair and nails done, you’re likely doing everything you can in the months, weeks and days leading up to it to ensure you look your best.
Facials before the wedding by a professional, licensed esthetician can help you navigate the right routine for you, whether your preference is to keep it as simple as possible or if you need a few extra steps to address stubborn issues.
The best time to start this facial regimen is at least six months in advance of your wedding day. Not only does this give you enough time to schedule a few treatments, but it gives your esthetician the chance to look at your skin over the course of time to see how it reacts.
Even if you are one of the few lucky ones to have good skin, it is essential to get regular facials to maintain a flawless complexion.
Here, estheticians share the best facials they recommend for brides and grooms—and what you can expect from each.
Like all the other organs in your body, your skin can’t survive without oxygen—and it thrives when it has enough. During an oxygen facial, the esthetician uses products and/or machines to oxygenate the skin. This promotes a brighter, softer, and clearer looking complexion.
This type of facial is gentle, so you won't have any redness or inflammation so long as you’ve had one before from the same esthetician, of course!
It is an advanced way of exfoliation that uses a diamond tip with a vacuum to resurface the skin. By removing the outermost dead layer of the skin it helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, post-acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. Microdermabrasion is a gold standard treatment in the spa world.
This type of facial is considered a natural alternative to Botox, fillers, or other more aggressive choices industry has to offer. It is a truly unique concept that starts with microdermabrasion and organic DNA peel, followed by a luxurious blend of active serums and a mask.
After the mask is removed we perform microcurrent, which is a low-level current that mimics the body's natural current and provides instant tonight, firming, and anti-aging results.
This pre-wedding facial triggers your body's natural cell process to increase cell turnover and repair the skin, thereby helping with many skin concerns, from dull skin to acne scars.
It is also known as Color Light Therapy, this type of facial uses four different wavelengths of LED light to plump skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and kill acne-causing bacteria.
A high-frequency facial machine is used to zap acne-causing bacteria on your face and reduce inflammation. Another added benefit to this treatment is that it can also increase circulation to stimulate collagen, which provides an anti-aging benefit.
The last thing you want to have to deal with on your wedding day is a pesky pimple. That’s why this type of facial is highly recommended for brides and grooms-to-be since it helps combat acne.
This type of facial treatment gets a bad rap but besides surface exfoliation, which can occur without too much redness, chemical peels are great for boosting cellular turnover and hydration levels. Results and downtime depend on the client's major concerns, percentage of solutions, and the number of layers.
