Getting Ready for Your Big Day: Bridal Prep

Back To Blog Overview

The American Medical Association news writer, Victoria Elliott, has recently posted an article about brides and their quest to look their best on their big day. According to Brian Lawrence, owner of Local Traffic Builder, a wedding industry website company based in River Edge, N.Y., “There’s definitely a lot of self-improvement when brides are planning their weddings. And there is tremendous motivation for a bride to look her best and feel her best.”

According to Elliott’s article, wedding preparations in 2008 included nearly $300 million spent to lose weight, and not just for brides, but for their moms and grooms as well. With nearly $60 billion spent on wedding preparations in 2008, this $300 million was a small amount. Though most of the money is spent on a lavish reception, invitations, and music, it’s not surprising that brides (and their families) wish to look great for those all-important and long-lasting wedding photos. If you’re a bride-to-be or preparing for a big day, our team here at Reflections Center can help.

The Best Treatments for Bridal Prep

At Reflections Center, we offer a huge variety of treatments that can help the bride (and her entourage) to look fabulous on their special day. Here’s our list of the top bridal prep options available from our award-winning cosmetic physicians.

Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

Knowing that many brides and grooms seek out acne scarring treatments, we offer special laser treatments such as fractional resurfacing for acne scars and the CO2 laser for the deepest scars. For older brides and moms, we utilize unique technology to reduce wrinkles and tighten the skin, all while creating a beautiful glow in tone and a smoother texture. Conservative lasers like the Clear + Brilliant can also be an excellent option and come with minimal downtime. For a powerful pick-me-up for your skin, options like micro Botox can be great options. Micro-rejuvenation is a similar option and uses tiny amounts of hyaluronic acid fillers to cause a healthy glow in the skin.

Aesthetic Treatments

For brides and moms wanting a fresher face for the event and afterward, some injectable aesthetic treatments that make the biggest impact include fillers, and Botox. Started early enough, Kybella can even slim the jawline and help you look your best in pictures from every angle.

Body Contouring

Many brides want to refresh their body contours as well—not only to fit into the most important dress of their lives but to look great in a swimsuit during the honeymoon. The downtime on these treatments is minimal but the results can be spectacular, particularly if several treatments are performed. Additionally, body contouring technologies like Emsculpt or SculpSure can help put the finishing touches on your pre-wedding diet and exercise regimen.

How to Get Started on Bridal Prep

For those with upcoming weddings, our best advice is not to wait until the last minute. You don’t want to be recovering from treatment when your friends and relatives arrive or when the photographer is snapping your wedding photos! If you have an upcoming event, we invite you to meet with our cosmetic physicians soon and explore all the best options available here at Reflections Center.
