Planning a wedding doesn’t happen overnight. Preparations start long before the couple ever meets at the altar and every detail is planned to a T. Amidst the hustle and bustle of picking floral arrangements and scheduling food tastings, many soon-to-be brides and grooms let skin and body care fall by the wayside, only to be addressed with quick fixes at the last minute that don’t offer the desired results.
Rather than rush to try to get the results you want, skin and body care should be part of the wedding planning process from the beginning. Here are a few easy tips you can put into practice now to make sure you look and feel your very best when the big day finally arrives.
Even if you’re hitting the gym to slim down and tone your body before the wedding, there are some areas that are impossible to target, even with the most intense workouts. Body shaping and skin smoothing treatments may be your answer to getting the results that you just can’t achieve at the gym.
Reducing the appearance of cellulite with non-invasive treatments like Venus Legacy™ may be the perfect complement to your pre-wedding fitness routine. This type of treatment is fast, virtually pain-free, and requires no downtime. In fact, you may end up looking forward to your treatments as a bit of an escape from the pressures of wedding planning and family compromises (because there will be plenty of those!) This particular treatment uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, and VariPulse™ technology to create a gentle, pulsing pressure that stimulates collagen production and lymphatic flow to safely break down body fat, resulting in the reduction of the appearance of cellulite for a leaner, more defined shape.
The last thing you want to do the week of your wedding is worry about shaving or waxing. Aside from the fact that these hair removal methods are short-term and time-consuming, they can also lead to ingrown hairs and skin irritations, which will be hard to hide on the wedding day—or even on the honeymoon afterward.
For longer-lasting results, consider Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal, like with Venus Versa™. This technology safely targets and destroys the hair follicle under the skin without affecting any of the surrounding tissue. It effectively gets rid of the existing hair and minimizes future hair growth in the treated area. Sessions are quick and virtually pain-free, but you’ll need more than one treatment so be sure to plan ahead to fit them into your busy schedule as the wedding day nears.
If there’s one day to shine, it’s your wedding day, but the stress from planning a wedding can take its toll on your skin. When facials won’t do the trick, consider non-invasive solutions to rejuvenate your skin and leave you glowing.
For clear, more radiant-looking skin, you may want to consider Venus Versa™ again, this time for non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments. Venus Versa™ uses Intense Pulsed Light technology to correct imperfections in the skin, which in turn can reduce signs of premature aging, such as sun spots and discoloration. The result is a brighter, more even skin tone.
All eyes (and cameras) are going to be on you at the wedding, so you’re going to want to put your best face forward. While makeup can help cover some imperfections, you likely don’t want to be masked in it. Makeup that’s too heavy can look unnatural and even emphasize the appearance of fine lines.
To improve the appearance of more severe skin concerns like acne scarring, stretch marks, or enlarged pores, consider skin resurfacing treatments with a non-invasive technology like Venus Viva™, which uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency and SmartScan™ technology to even out skin’s texture. Although you may notice a difference after one session, booking a couple treatments before your wedding day will ensure that your skin appears even healthier—meaning less makeup and more confidence in front of all those cameras.
