When to Start Wedding Med Spa Treatments

With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

Getting ready for your big day can be an exciting time! If you want to look your best, however, it may not be as exciting – it may even feel a little overwhelming trying to schedule your treatments in time. At CARE Plastic Surgery, we offer comprehensive, compassionate, patient-centered care and can work with your unique schedule to help you make the most of your big day. Here’s our ultimate timeline for pre-wedding med spa treatments with our team, led by Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Brian Coan.

12 Months Before the Wedding

One year or more before your wedding, you should focus on treatments that take time to show results. This might include laser options like CO2 skin resurfacing or vein treatments. It might also include body contouring options such as CoolSculpting to reduce fat in specific areas of the body. RF microneedling and other skin tightening services would ideally be completed within a year. This is also a great time to work on perfecting your medical grade skin care routine to improve uneven skin tone, shrink enlarged pores, address fine lines and wrinkles, and get overall glowing skin.

Six Months Before the Wedding

Six months prior to the wedding is a great time to start getting regular skincare treatments like chemical peels to clear sun damage and dead skin cells. They’re also one of our best treatments to address acne, helping you get breakouts under control and treat any scars. If you’re interested in laser hair removal, now is a great time to begin regular treatments and ensure the hair follicles are fully treated before your big day. About this time, it’s also best to begin incorporating injectables into your beauty plan if you haven’t already. Starting Botox now can help you judge your look before your wedding date and lock in your preferred dosage and treatment plan.

Three Months Before the Wedding

Three months before, you can begin exploring hyaluronic acid filler treatments to plump your lips, contour your jawline, fill in undereye bags, and much more. Three months gives you plenty of time to judge and tweak your results if needed with treatments like Juvederm filler. If you’re interested in treating other areas with CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment, now is the best time if you want to see results. Finally, start Latisse now to get thicker, fuller lashes over the next few months.

One Month Before the Wedding

One month prior to the wedding, focus on touching up any prior results where needed, such as Botox injections or fillers. One month gives you plenty of time for your final results to set in so you don’t need to worry about it in the upcoming weeks. We recommend backing off from most cosmetic treatments after this point so your recovery time doesn’t run too close to your wedding day.

One Week Before the Wedding

One week ahead of the wedding day, it’s time to freshen up your skin and give it a noticeable glow. DiamondGlow can produce almost instant results, addressing uneven tone, texture, and brightness, and minimizing the appearance of fine lines. It can also help clear your pores and ensure against breakouts.
