With all eyes on you on your wedding day, you’ll want to give your face a little bit of extra attention before the big event. Flawless, radiant skin is the ultimate goal for all brides-to-be. Fortunately, there are plenty of treatments that can transform your skin from tired and dull to drop-dead-gorgeous!

From minimally invasive, temporary enhancements that smooth away fine lines and add volume to your face to surgical procedures that permanently improve facial features, there are many effective and safe ways to look your best while walking down the aisle.

If you want to correct certain skin issues or just boost your bridal glow in the months leading up to your wedding, here are six beauty treatments for bridal perfection that are worth investing in.

1.  Collagen Induction Therapy for Smoother, Firmer, More Toned Skin

Also known as micro-needling, this treatment creates controlled microscopic “injuries” in the skin by repeatedly puncturing it with tiny needles. This process urges your body to activate its wound healing process and accelerates your collagen production.

The improvement in the skin can be remarkable. Fine lines, scars, and hyperpigmentation can be reduced thanks to an increase in healthy skin cells and collagen. Your overall complexion will be dewier and smother, while your pores will seem smaller.

Plan this treatment up to six months before your wedding date.

2.  Restore the Youthful Appearance of Your Skin With Fillers

Cosmetic facial fillers, or dermal fillers, can provide amazing anti-aging results. They add volume to the face, targeting areas that appear sagged or sunken. They also minimize wrinkles and fine lines, plump up lips, and even provide contouring to the chin and jaw.

If you are planning to get injectable wrinkle reducers like botox, bear in mind that results may take a few weeks to manifest. Besides, it will take some time for swelling or mild bruising to fade away.

Therefore, it’s best to schedule your pre-wedding treatment six to eight weeks before your big day.

3.  For More Advanced Signs of Aging Consider Plastic Surgery

If your skin is showing more advanced signs of aging and lacks fullness significantly, non-surgical treatments may not be sufficient. Plastic surgery provides more effective results, so if you are dealing with issues like sagging eyelids or bags around the eyes, it can help you achieve a refreshed, more wide-eyed look.

In a quest for a fresh face with more symmetrical features and fewer lines, facelifts are also a popular option. A brow lift reverses the effect of gravity, smooths and tightens the skin above the eyes, eliminating the tired, angry, or worried look that sagging forehead skin can give to your face.

Also, you can opt for a lower facelift only. This procedure will help you get rid of the double chin and nasolabial folds so you can have your old facial structure back.

If you are considering a surgical cosmetic procedure, allow for at least six to eight months between the intervention and your wedding day.

4.  Hair Glossing Treatment for Silky, Shiny Hair

This is a temporary treatment that impacts both the health of your hair and its shade. And if you dye your hair, you’ll be happy to know that a gloss can make your shade more even and brighten or darken your existing color.

Semi-permanent glossing treatments provide richness and vibrancy to your hair while smoothing down the cuticle and calming frizz and flyaways. It refreshes the hue of your hair and provides a high shine that lasts about a month.  

A few days or a week before your big day is the perfect time to infuse your hair with radiance and shine.

5.  Facials for Radiant, Glowing Skin

Whatever your skin type is and whatever skin issues you’re dealing with, there is a facial out there tailored to help you achieve picture-perfect skin. Find a reputable beauty therapist and speak to them about your concerns and your skin goals.

A knowledgeable and skilled professional will be able to craft a customized facial treatment that will target your problem areas and get your complexion in tip-top shape before the big event.

Ideally, you should include six sessions in your bridal beauty plan, starting four months prior to the wedding.

6.  Enhance Your Look With Brow Shaping & Lash Extensions

Framing your eyes with gorgeous, thick eyelashes and combining them with a perfectly shaped eyebrow can significantly enhance the way you look. It creates a more youthful and wide-awake appearance.

An experienced beauty therapist will decide on the right eyebrow shape that will flatter your face and highlight its features.

And together with lash extensions that create the illusion of bigger eyes, this simple treatment will give you a more balanced appearance and even take a few years off. 

Follow these steps to look your best on your wedding day.
