Whether you are attending a wedding in the near future or planning for your own big day, everyone wants to look perfect for this once in a lifetime (hopefully!) special event. For some, it means finding the perfect dress and spending countless hours on Pinterest admiring beautiful hair styles and make-up. Why not enhance your skin condition and whip it into tip-top wedding day shape?

It is not going to work if you start addressing your skin care needs the week prior to your wedding. The same applies to mothers-of-the-bride or groom. Good skin takes work, and the implementation of a corrective regimen should begin at least 6 months to a year prior to the wedding date. At Paragon Med Spa, the work begins with offering a complimentary skin consultation with our estheticians. Cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing, along with wearing sunscreen are the basics. Professional treatments such as facials or microdermabrasion (mechanical exfoliation) can provide more intensive correction that will be long-lasting. Usually these treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart, and as your skin condition improves, additional treatments such as peels that vary in strength and targeted correction are customized to your needs. Specific products are recommended to help you achieve success as you implement your home care regimen.

For more mature skin or for skin that is acne prone, there is nothing more effective than prescription strength Retin-A or Tretinoin. Although each day seems to bring a new “must have” miracle skin care ingredient, Retin A is the most effective application for increasing skin turnover, unclogging congested pores, boosting collagen and fading hyperpigmentation. There is an adjustment period while your skin is introduced to Retin A in which redness and flaking as well as a possible uptick in acne breakouts occurs. The skin care professionals at Paragon will help you through this period by exfoliating and hydrating your skin. We will work within your budget, your goals and your particular skin type to transform your skin to its optimal state.

If skin redness or rosacea is a concern, there are many treatments and products available to improve and control this pesky skin condition. Redness or broken capillaries can be treated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) at set intervals, and these treatments are surprisingly budget friendly at Paragon Med Spa. When executed well, these treatments, coupled with hydrating facials, are key to minimizing inflammation and improving your appearance.

Mothers of the bride or groom and even brides and wedding parties themselves are interested in cosmetic injectables such as Botox or fillers to correct lines and wrinkles prior to the wedding event. Note it is not advisable to have these treatments within 1 month of the wedding, as some clients will experience bruising and discoloration at the injection site. Your esthetician and physician will advise the best time to schedule these treatments, so that you will look your best.

Beautiful skin is absolutely the best accessory any day of the year, but on your wedding day, it is so important. Getting your skin in shape is often overlooked, and there is only so much a photographer can do. Are you ready to begin your bridal beauty transformation journey?  Paragon Med Spa is here to help.
