What's a good skincare regimen right before a wedding to get that natural glow (microderms, facials, combination of both)?

A few weeks before the wedding have a skincare party and book appointments for your wedding party to have a free consultation. We make recommendations for persons based on the individual skin type. If you opt for microderm, you need to give your skin time to heal, so doing the procedure 10 days before the wedding is best. Microcurrent is non-invasive and tightens, lifts, sculpts and contours quickly and becomes permanent. A few treatments just before the wedding will be great. A nice brightening glycolic peel is great for most skin types and it melts away dead skin. Makeup will also go on smoother. I also recommend the photorejuvenating facials for those in their 20s and 30s. Microcurrent with photorejuvenation will help with acne and rosecea. Get started early!

Combination microdermabrasion and facial or a combination microdermabrasion with a light chemical peel.

A great facial is the safe bet. At that time the esthetician will be able to determine if further or different treatments are needed. In our practice, brides are encouraged to visit us for a facial two months prior to the special day. That gives plenty of time to treat any issues. Generally our brides end up having microdermabrasion treatments to guarantee smooth skin.

Superficial, mild peels are a great way to exfoliate your skin & get that beautiful glow before the big day. A light lactic acid peel offers a skin-hydrating result. I would start the peels a few months ahead of time (on a monthly basis) and have the last peel a week before the event. A hydrating facial a few days before the event will top off your glow.

Congrats on your wedding! Stay away from retinols and glycolic peels. Dermasweeps and microdermabrasions are suitable treatments for exfoliation with no downtime.
