Prepping for Wedding Season: 3 Treatments to Begin Now for Stunning Photos

by | Feb 12, 2021 | Face, Non-Surgical Options

Weddings, when two people bring together their families and loved ones to celebrate their first steps into this world as a married couple, have always been a time for joy and celebration. While still in winter, many of us are looking forward to the almost-around-the-corner wedding season. Why should that be relevant? Well, 73% of all weddings take place somewhere between May and October. For many of us, an entire season of celebrations and stunning photos awaits!

For their special day to be a success, today’s brides are more than willing to go the extra mile – dress fittings, treadmill sessions, and spa appointments make up the bride’s beauty care arsenal to look fabulous and refreshed on their wedding day. After all, nothing encapsulates the spirit of a perfect wedding better than an album of stunning photos.

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we believe that foresight and thorough planning are the most adequate answers to the age-long “How can I look my best during the wedding season?” question. Whether it’s your special day or you take part in someone else’s joy, looking at your best during the wedding season has never been easier! With the help of our well-planned skin rejuvenation set of procedures, you will be ready to enjoy every single magical moment with a stunning look worthy of the world’s best wedding albums. Without further ado, let’s dive into the world of skin rejuvenation and find out which cosmetic procedures and treatments will help you achieve your aesthetic goals for this wedding season.

#1: Improved Facial Contouring with FACEtite

The first step in your skin rejuvenation program is to bring out the FACEtite heavy artillery. Well, heavy in name only, since this minimally invasive treatment harnesses the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel the connective tissue below the skin. As this tissue is heated, it immediately contracts and enables contouring. Furthermore, because of the heat that’s being distributed under the skin, you can say goodbye to the excess fatty tissue around the face and neck, lessening the appearance of puffiness. Early signs of double chins, jowl lines, and frown lines can also be treated with FACEtite.

FACEtite makes up for a superior skin rejuvenation treatment that is minimally invasive and requires little downtime. Moreover, while you will notice improvements right after you leave our office, the benefits of this procedure will continue to appear over several months. For that reason, we think it best for future brides to come to our office at least six months before the wedding day, to give FACEtite enough time to work its magic.

Facelift for the Bride’s Mother      

Wedding festivities bring emotional moments not only to the bride but also to you, her mother. The thought of seeing your daughter in a splendid white dress, ready to begin her journey as an all-grown-up woman, will surely bring happy tears to your eyes. As a mother, you want your daughter’s wedding to go by the books, which is why you too are dreaming about a stunning look for the wedding. After all, your daughter gets her natural beauty from you, and you would like all the guests to notice that.

For you, the bride’s mother, you can get photo-ready for your daughter’s big day with the help of a facelift. Through this surgical procedure, Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, can address different areas (e.g., the cheeks, the neck, upper eyelids, and lower eyelids) and deal with natural signs of aging. The procedure requires a downtime period for the early swelling to recede and make way for a stunning look. If you’re planning to add a facelift to the wedding preparations, we recommend that you book this procedure at least three months in advance. After three months, you will be ready to enjoy the wedding while stunning your daughter’s guests with your incredible look!

#2: Superior Skin Care with Radiofrequency Microneedling and Skin Rejuvenation Laser Treatments 

With the big-picture treatments out of the way, what’s left for you to do is rely on a couple of minimally-invasive treatments to keep your stunning results fresh. One of them is Morpheus8, a skin rejuvenation procedure that focuses on using radiofrequency energy delivered directly to the skin to cause an increase in collagen and elastin, the two proteins responsible for plump, elastic dermal tissue. The generation of new collagen in the dermis helps tighten the skin and reduce natural aging signs, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Overall, this treatment will improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin.

At the end of your treatment, you will enjoy a softer skin tissue, ideal for a long wedding day filled with touching moments and exciting photoshoots. We know that only stunning results are on your mind, so we recommend that you join us for a treatment session approximately 3 months before the big event. That way, the treatment will have enough time to work its magic and provide you with clear, glowing skin for the wedding day.

After improving the overall appearance and texture of your skin with Morpheus8, the second minimally-invasive treatment is here to bring your skin smoothness to the next level – CoolPeel™! This skin resurfacing treatment uses an advanced CO2 laser to reveal a smoother skin layer beneath the surface. Furthermore, aside from the smoothing effect, CoolPeel™ is effective at reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and pores while improving the Morpheus8 skin texture results.


Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate your skin!

#3: Deep Skin Cleansing with DiamondGlowTM

As the wedding day is nearing, the next step is to go through a final deep skin cleaning, perfect for making the results of the previous cosmetic procedures more visible. Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we believe that there’s no better treatment to achieve deep skin cleansing than the DiamondGlowTM treatment.

This hydradermabrasion device uses a three-step plan to deliver a stunning, rejuvenated look:

  •         Exfoliate – to remove the stratum corneum (the outer layer of the skin) and make way for renewed dermal tissue.
  •         Extract – to clean up the pores from debris and other impurities.
  •         Infuse Skin – to deliver condition-specific serums into the skin.

This spa treatment is perfect for a last-minute touch-up treatment, leaving you with superior, glowing skin. From our experience, the DiamondGlowTM treatment requires approx. one week to deliver full results. During the frenzy that defines the week before the wedding, make sure that you set aside a few moments for your DiamondGlowTM treatment!
