Here we go!
12 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY
Book your first consultation.
You need to make the time for a thorough skin consultation, a discussion on what your end goals for your skin are and a complete treatment plan. Consultation should also include a home treatment plan. Keeping up with skincare at home will help to prolong and maintain treatment results. Make sure its the best fit to your lifestyle. Do you work outdoors? Do you travel a lot? What are the regular activities you participate in? What is your budget?
Treatments should be chosen based on what time of year is it as well. Some treatments can be done in the summer while others cannot. You may get an appointment your first visit, typically an Aqua Facial. Of course, depending again on the season.
9 - 11 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY
Let's do it!
This is the time to undergo the more invasive treatments to get those amazing results you are looking for! Treatments can include deep peels, IPL Skin Rejuvenation, IPL Acne Treatments, Microneedling and IPL Skin Tightening. Typically these treatments are on a 4-5 week rotation so you want to make sure you get started early enough to get a few treatments done.
Make sure you keep open communication with your Aesthetician to make sure you are staying on track with your skin goals.
6 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY
You still have time!
You still have time for invasive treatments and you can still get results with a couple treatments. It is better to do 2-3 treatments than nothing at all at this point. Even a couple Microneedling Treatments or IPL Skin Tightening Treatments can make an impact on your skin. Remember home care is still important as well......maintaining your treatments at home does save you money in the long run.
You want to be doing treatments that regenerate and heal the skin of damage. Focus on maximizing results with each treatment chosen. For example; adding a light peel, hydration masks and serums, double treatments and making sure you are keeping all appointments that are booked. A schedule of appointments is made to maximize results, try not to move appointments around too much.
3 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY
Now is the time look back and focus on what has been working for your skin. New treatments should not be introduced. If you are just starting your treatments they should be kept to minimally invasive ones such as Diamondabrasion Treatments, Aqua Facials, Dermaplaning and hydration treatments.
Remember, keeping communication open keeps everyone on track!
1 MONTH BEFORE THE BIG DAY
You're almost there!
Have your last professional treatment and keep using your products at home to nourish and hydrate your skin. Exfoliation treatments are still great for your skin at this point. You may also want to have a Hydrating Facial two days before the big day. There's a lot to plan and taking care of yourself is still important. Don't forget to ask for skin tips to prep your skin before the big day.
YOU DID IT! CONGRATULATIONS!
*Keep in mind these are general guidelines. Each person is so different with their skin goals and how they would like to achieve them, a plan is put in place for every new client based on needs and skin type.
