There are so many things running through the minds of a newly engaged couple. From wedding dress shopping and choosing a reception location, to picking a date and making a guest list, there are many decisions to be made. Throughout this process, it’s important to remember that your wedding day is about you and your partner, and sadly, self-care is often neglected during wedding preparation. At Imagen, we have created a spa-like atmosphere for you to feel relaxed and comfortable while we help you achieve your best skin and figure for your wedding day.
Wedding Skin Prep
Great wedding day skin starts with a healthy foundation. Gut health, hydration and great skincare products are your first line of defense when it comes to preserving your skin. Believe it or not, the average person should be drinking nearly a gallon of water per day for optimum health and your appearance depends on it. Foods rich in antioxidants like berries and dark chocolate will help reduce free radicals that cause wrinkles while healthy fats like avocado and walnuts help reduce inflammation, which causes redness and acne. Furthermore, as we age, the building blocks for youthful skin begin to fade, and while this can’t be prevented, it can be slowed or restored. Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid are the key ingredients for youthful skin and Imagen offers a rage of pharmaceutical-grade skincare products, as well as facial rejuvenation treatments, to help preserve these anti-aging properties.
Dr. Jennifer de Soto recommends Refissa for *anyone in your bridal party. *Refissa is a prescribed Tretinoin Cream, which requires a doctor to first examine your skin. Follow this link to read Dr. Jen’s informative blog post: Anti-Aging Treatments at Imagen.
Bridal Party Facial Treatments
You want your skin to look its best for timeless wedding photos, but what about your bridal party? Facial treatments are great to begin months in advance because they stimulate the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which develops over time. In addition to reinvigorating your skin with facial lasers, peels or microneedling with PRP, there are a variety of injectables that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles or restore volume including Botox, Sculptra or Juvederm.
Dr. Frank Soto compares great skin care and facial treatments to taking care of your car…we keep our cars clean and full of gas, which is like a good diet and quality skincare. Quarterly facial treatments like Botox or Juvederm are like your routine oil change. All of these things work together to keep your car looking and working great longer, much like proper skincare and facial treatments keep your skin looking and feeling youthful longer.
