Wedding season is already upon us and will quickly gain even more steam in the next few weeks. If you’re a bride or groom about to get married, then you obviously want to look your best. Think about all of the family members and friends that will be there. Plus, your picture will be taken more times than you’ll be able to count. Even if you’re just attending the wedding as a bridesmaid or groomsman, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to make yourself look even better.

The following are a few cosmetic procedures you can get before the big day that will make a noticeable difference in your appearance.


As one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, Botox is often the first choice for those who want to look younger with fewer wrinkles. And the fact that it’s a non-invasive procedure that can be performed during one’s lunch hour makes it even more enticing. Further, Botox is great for both men and women.

If you’re thinking about a Botox injection before the big day, try to schedule it at least two weeks in advance. Results can be seen is as little as 48-hours, but it can take up to two weeks to see the full benefits of this treatment.

Laser resurfacing

This treatment can treat conditions such as sun damage, scars (acne, surgical), uneven pigmentation, poor texture and even smooth out wrinkles. Laser resurfacing works by stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production. It also smooths out skin tone, giving the skin a healthier, more vibrant look.

Laser resurfacing should be done at least two weeks in advance of a wedding because that’s the length of time it will take for the benefits to start showing. Also, two weeks will give the skin a chance to completely heal. In most cases, your skin should heal within about a week.

Chemical peel

A chemical peel is another easy, fast-healing treatment that will make a noticeable difference in your skin’s appearance for the big day. There are several benefits to a chemical peel, including exfoliating your skin, unclogging pores and stimulating new collagen and elastin production. This treatment only takes about 30 minutes, meaning it’s easy to fit into even the busiest schedules.

Chemical peels have almost no downtime. The only restriction is to stay out of the sun for a few days afterward because the peel does make your skin more sensitive. However, after a week you’ll be fully healed and looking great.

Don’t wait until the last minute!

Even though the three above treatments are easy with a very small recovery period, it still helps to plan ahead and get these treatments sooner rather than later. If you’re looking to get a surgical procedure done, like a facelift, then you should be thinking several months (maybe even a year) in advance.
