Don’t have time to do anything but shop for and worry about your marriage? But before all this, you’ve got to take some time off and pamper yourself. Aren’t you supposed to glow and radiate on D-day? Go ahead and book an appointment with your dermatologist for skin rejuvenation programmes.
Here is a list of programmes that you can opt for to restore the flawless look of your face:
Chemical peels, also known as derma-peels, help improve the appearance of the skin. When the chemical solution is applied on the skin it leaves behind a blister that eventually peels off. The regenerated skin is usually better and smoother.
You can consider going for a chemical peel to:
Reduce wrinkles caused due to family history (it’s all in the genes sometimes), sun exposure and ageing.
Reduce freckles, blemishes, age spots, scars and dark blotches on face.
Improve skin tone and texture.
Redness after a chemical peel is very common, so you don’t have to panic.
Chemical peels are not a good option to completely banish deep lines and wrinkles. For this you will have to undergo other cosmetic procedures.
This procedure takes two weeks to show results. Depending on your skin condition you will have to work out the number of sittings.
Photo Facials or Intense Pulse Light
A photo facial is a skin treatment that uses light-based technology which has no down-time and gives almost immediate results.
So, you are an ideal candidate if you complain about:
Acne, rosacea and are dark skin.
Mild acne scars.
Broken capillaries and facial redness.
Results will last for 4—6 months.
Each sitting lasts for about 15—20 minutes.
You might have to take a package for better results; the sittings are spaced apart, around 3 weeks.
For best results see a dermatologist at least 6-8 months before your wedding date.
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day.
Dermaroller is the most commonly sought-after pre-wedding beauty treatment. It is collagen inducing treatment and increases the level of elastin in your skin.
You can choose to undergo this treatment, if you complain about:
Wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.
Sun damaged skin lines.
Consult a dermatologist at least 3—4 months before your wedding.
After dermaroller session you will feel burning sensation on your face.
Your skin will turn pink-red after a session but usually this subsides within 24 hours.
Improvement in scars can be seen after 3—4 sittings.
Some Basic Precautions
Whichever treatment you intend to undergo, make sure you take these precautions:
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day after you get a chemical peel done.
Always avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
Don’t go out in the sun immediately after a chemical peel.
Hope this has been of some use to all you beautiful brides.
