Bridal Beauty Q&A: Tips for Perfect Skin
Every bride wants to have amazing skin on her wedding day. Clear, supple, glowing skin will provide the best base for natural-looking makeup rather than having to layer on foundation and concealer to hide imperfections and end up with a heavy, artificial look. A trip to your dermatologist is essential so that you can start your skincare journey in good hands.
Q: I have a lot of sun damage and discoloration. What’s the best treatment to even out my complexion?
A: Pigmentation concerns are very common, especially here in Southern California where we get sunshine almost every day. Fortunately, there are many laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments available that can reverse sun damage and even out skin tone. Some of my favorites include Clear & Brilliant, Fraxel Dual, Picoway, Picosure, and my absolute favorite, the IPL, which is not technically a laser but rather a broad spectrum light treatment that does wonders for a bright, clear complexion in addition to treating unwanted blood vessels, blushing, and enlarged pore size.
Q: My skin is in good condition, but I want to make sure it’s in tip-top shape for the big day. What do you recommend?
A: To keep your skin in the best shape, I recommend having regular facials and meeting with a dermatologist in order to customize a tailored skincare regimen in the months leading up to your wedding day. Regular facials are an essential part of great skincare! We also offer some great services meant to be done a day or two before your big event for optimal glowing skin, such as liquid nitrogen, dermaplaning, or microneedling.
Q: I’ve been starting to notice some sagging along my jaw and neck, but I don’t want a facelift! What can I do?
A: Don’t worry – a facelift is not your only option for fixing sagging skin! There are many non-invasive skin tightening treatments that can make a dramatic difference with little to no downtime needed. Look into Ultherapy, ThermiRF, Thermage, or microneedling with RF (Infini) to tighten up your skin and achieve a beautiful neck and jawline.
