Should I Get a Facial Before My Wedding?
Trying out a new product just before your wedding can be very scary. You never know how your skin is going to react. This is why the type of facial you receive will vary depending on your skincare prep. We recommend having a minimum of 3 facials over a 90-day period so you are glowing on your big day. This helps ensure your skin is used to the active ingredients used during facials and in evidence-based skincare.
4 reasons it takes 90 days to achieve glowing skin
Give Lifted 90 days, and we can make huge changes to your skin health. Give us a year, and we can blow your mind. Here is why:
- Provides time for our team to customize a homecare routine. 70-80% of healthy, glowing skin is committing to a daily at-home skincare routine. It takes 90 days of consistent use to really see the changes to your skin.
- Gives your skin time to acclimate to active ingredients in your skincare. When introducing active ingredients, your skin can sometimes get worse before it gets better. This is very normal, and we call it “a purge”. This is because we are giving your skin the vitamins and tools it needs to create new youthful, healthy skin. Out with the old and in with the new.
- It takes 3-6 months for collagen synthesis.
- The skin on your face turns over about every 28 days. So, the work you do today to support skin health you’ll see in about a month.
How many days before my wedding should I get a facial?
1-3 days before is ideal, but if you are traveling for your big day, we can customize a facial that will still have you glowing 14 days later. We customize each facial based on each client’s skin needs. Our pre-wedding facial generally begins with dermaplaning. Dermaplaning will exfoliate the dead skin cells and remove the vellus hair (peach fuzz) leaving your skin glowing and the perfect canvas for flawless make-up application.
Following the dermaplaning, we move on to the HydraFacial. The HydraFacial will painlessly extract all the impurities in your pores and infuse antioxidants into your skin. We love to boost the HydraFacial with the HydroPeptide Booster because it leaves you hydrated and glowing.
What if I have a skin emergency close to my wedding date?
Lifted has your “face” when it comes to looking your best on your big day. We have the tools and experience to treat blemishes and soothe irritated skin. For example, with our Potenza RF Microneedling device, we can use an acne tip to coagulate the pore. It essentially dries it out, leaving you blemish-free for your big day.
This is just another great reason to establish care with your aesthetician well before your walk down the aisle. Ideally, our clients will have established care 9-12 months before they say, “I do”.
So, whether you are walking down the aisle next week, newly engaged, or a priancé – give Lifted a call. We will have you glowing for your big day.
