Creating Your Personalized Wedding Skin & Body Prep Timeline
When it comes to wedding planning, finding the perfect dress and venue may be at the forefront of your mind, but skin care should be too! Every bride (and groom, family, and wedding party member) wants to look their best on the big day. Avoiding stress-induced breakouts, and achieving an enviably youthful glow and sculpted figure, for your next big event takes more planning than you may think.
While every patient’s aesthetic goals are different, here’s a general wedding beauty timeline from the AESTHETICS 360° team to get you ready for whatever special day you have on the horizon.
1 year prior
The first bullet point on your bridal beauty checklist is booking a free consultation as soon as possible. When you meet with an experienced AESTHETICS 360°aesthetic specialist, we’ll get to know you, your aesthetic goals and your budget so we can create a plan just for you!
As part of your consultation, you’ll receive a free VISIA Complexion Analysis with our specialists so we can truly get to know your skin. We use the latest technology to accurately scan, analyze, and classify your skin beneath the surface. This allows our skin experts to develop an in-depth treatment plan that is much more accurate than guesswork.
Our office also offers injector-specific consultations if you’re looking to enhance your facial features with dermal fillers or Botox, so we can develop a maintenance schedule to ensure lasting results.
To seamlessly sculpt your wedding day physique, we recommend scheduling your body sculpting services at the start of your wedding beauty timeline. Body sculpting treatments often require multiple sessions and time must be allowed for results to develop. We offer a range of effective nonsurgical body sculpting treatments in Milwaukee so you can sculpt and shape your body.
There’s a reason everyone’s heard of CoolSculpting. This non-invasive treatment is clinically proven to reduce unwanted fat in the following areas:
Bra back fat and the under-arm “puff”
Inner and outer thighs
Fat under the chin
Fat above the knees
Banana roll (area under buttock crease)
Our extensively trained specialists use this Harvard-developed technology to target stubborn pockets of fat and freeze up to 20-25% of fat cells, so you can achieve real results without harming your skin. The treatment time varies from 35-75+ minutes depending on the area and requires little to no recovery time. You may see results as early as 30 days after treatment, with peak results at 150 days, although many patients may require follow-up sessions. But once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good!
Not everyone is born with an altar-ready side profile. If you’re struggling with unwanted chin fat, Kybella is an effective option! This revolutionary injectable permanently destroys fat cells so you can kiss your double-chin goodbye. By injecting a naturally-occuring solution that breaks down fat cells, your body metabolizes and kills these targeted cells. You’ll need a minimum of 2 treatments, but many patients get 4 to 6 treatments, spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart, to achieve desired results. And don’t forget CoolSculpting for the chin is a great option, too!
9-12 months prior
It’s never too early to develop a more thought-out skincare routine, which is the key to finding products you love and balancing out your skin in time for your special event. From opting for more penetrative in-office treatments to finding a daily serum, here’s what to incorporate:
If you’re not already using medical-grade skin care, it’s time to start! Upgrading your routine is an essential step to maximizing treatment results. Medical-grade skin care means that these products have endured extensive testing and clinical trials to be proven not only safe, but effective. We offer trusted brands such as Skinbetter Science, Revision Skincare, Restorsea, Latisse, and our exclusive AESTHETICS 360° line. You can stop by our office to get personalized product recommendations from our skincare experts or restock your favorites on our website.
Advanced skin treatments
Struggling to feel comfortable in your skin due to acne, melasma, uneven texture, sun damage or scarring? Incorporate advanced skin treatments, which often require a series, 9-12 months into your wedding beauty timeline so you can address your skin concerns and take on the day with confidence like you’ve never experienced before.
Chemical peels are a popular rejuvenative treatment among brides of all ages, and we promise that they’re not as scary as they sound. By removing superficial layers of skin, we can reveal brand new, healthy skin! We offer a variety of chemical peel options to meet your skin goals, whether your concerns are wrinkles, enlarged pores, scarring, or redness. Depending on the type of peel and your skin, recovery will range from 0-2 weeks after each treatment.
Our Illuminize Chemical Peel, AKA the “red carpet peel”, delivers instant vibrance with no downtime. This peel is superficial, so you may not notice visible skin peeling after each treatment. Our Vitalize Peel is ideal for patients with mild to moderate skin conditions. You may feel a quick tingle during your session, but shortly after you’ll notice an improvement in skin texture, clarity, and tone. The Rejuvenize Peel is meant for moderate to severe skin imperfection, and you’ll likely experience a yellowish skin tint for a couple hours following as it works to fight sun damage and fine lines.
Microneedling is an innovative treatment that boosts your skin’s collagen and elastin levels, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Our office is also proud to offer a range of Broadband Light (BBL) treatments that harness the transformative powers of intense pulsed light to address many skin concerns. Learn more about how our BBL Photofacial addresses skin damage, Forever Young BBL fights aging, and Forever Clear BBL reduces breakouts. Although you’ll notice improvement in the weeks following your session, results will continue to improve for months after treatment
Laser hair removal
Avoid the nightmare of stubble or ingrown hairs on your wedding day—it’s time to finally toss the razor, cancel your next dreaded waxing appointment, and opt for laser hair removal. Schedule your ForeverBare BBL treatment with our specialists to safely and quickly target hair growth from the root, anywhere on the body. Most areas require 6-8 treatments split up among 4-6 week intervals, with an end result of 70% to 90% hair reduction!
Cellulite affects 90% of women at some point in their lives, and despite common misconceptions, it isn’t reliant on your weight. The QWO Cellulite Treatment is the first treatment of its kind to reduce cellulite with injections. You may notice visible results within just 10 weeks!
3-6 months prior
Your big day is coming up fast! Now that you’ve locked in your venue, catering, and sent out save-the-dates, it’s time to hone in on your skin goals. If you missed working microneedling, BBL, or laser hair removal treatments so far in your wedding beauty timeline, it’s not too late to still see some results! During this time, you should continue to keep up with the treatment series you’ve already begun and start to incorporate more gentle rejuvenation.
Experience skin renewal like never before with a SaltFacial, which patients are calling the best facial in Milwaukee! This three-step treatment is perfect for all skin types. Refined, organic sea salt is packed with nutrients and anti-bacterial properties that combat aging, damaged skin for a replenished smooth complexion you’ll see and feel.
It’s also a great time to try one of our specialty treatments, like the 360° Signature Treatment, for added TLC on your face, neck and chest. Also, our 360° acne treatment fights a variety of acne and acne-related skin concerns for people of all ages.
