If you have already taken the marital plunge, you would know the many concerns that cloud your mind in the build up to the Wedding Day. One of the many worries experienced by the bride is about her appearance and skin. Some want to get rid of scars and blemishes, others desire more facial glow.
So, if you are looking for viable solutions to multiple skin problems or desire a more even complexion, skin tone and glow, you can pick and chose from the following options:
Chemical Peels: Chemical peels is a simple procedure that stimulates skin regeneration and helps reveal a fresh, smoother and clearer layer of skin. With time, continuous sun exposure and environmental onslaught, the skin loses its sheen. Dead cells crowd the upper layer of the skin, making it appear dull, tanned, pigmented and lifeless. Using chemical agents, a dermatologist will help exfoliate or scrub out this damaged and dull upper layer of the skin, and a fresh new layer of skin takes its place. This new regenerated skin is free from scars and blemishes, pigmentation and tanning and is full of life and vigor. This procedure will give you a clearer complexion, even and brighter skin tone and glow.
Laser Hair Removal: Body hair is another major worry that women have to deal with throughout life, especially those who have excess hair. Regular waxing routines can be an irritant. A lot of time is wasted in the routine twice a month. If, for some reason, you are unable to wax or shave you have to be restricted in what you wear. No waxing means no short sleeves, no short skirts. Laser hair removal is a preferred way to get rid of the worry permanently. It is also one of the most popular treatments brides seek.
Juvederm Refine: One of the most notable concerns of women is lack of glow and skin dullness. Every bride wants to look radiant and glowing on her wedding day and the following few days when she goes about meetings new friends and family. Hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm Refine are a very good way of achieving long lasting radiance and glow. Hyaluronic acid, when administered into the skin, helps the dermis absorb and retain water. This gives the skin a beautiful glow and radiance. Moreover the effects of this quick procedure last for a good six months. Some women also like to get the procedure done on their hands to make them appear more beautiful, especially before applying henna.
Hair & Scalp Treatment: Along with skin, hair is another major worry for women. Dull, rough, lifeless hair, split ends, dandruff can be immensely worrying especially before the wedding. It is recommended that a few weeks before the wedding get your hair and scalp examined by a dermatologist. Dandruff also leads to hair fall. If you have dandruff you may need antibiotics – both oral and topical -- to treat the infection. The hair may then need rejuvenating treatments like hydrating spa, or laser hair combing to give your hair more life and vigor.
Botox: Today, as more and more women delay their plans to settle down and dedicate more time to establishing their careers, some of them have to also deal with early signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. Botox helps to reduce the stress lines on the forehead and the crow’s feet around the eyes, giving you a younger, fresher and a more relaxed appearance.
