As your wedding approaches, many things are on your mind. Not only do you want the music, dress and food to be perfect, but you want your skin to radiate as you walk down the aisle! Dr. Mohiba Tareen and Lauren Sundick PA-C at Tareen Dermatology in Minnesota have developed unique regimens for their patients who have recently become engaged. As women, they understand the desire to look your best on the big day and will help to get your skin in optimal shape with plenty of time before your wedding.
Here are a few things for brides to consider prior to their big day:
- Skin care is key – Find a gentle cleanser and daily moisturizer with SPF that work well for your skin.
- Retinoids – Retinoids stimulate skin cell turnover, meaning that they stimulate collagen production and reduce sun damage on the skin. This means a smoother makeup application and brighter skin. Additionally, retinoids prevent acne from developing in the busy time leading up to your wedding.
- Chemical peels – Chemical peels can address many issues: melanoma, dull skin, rosacea, acne. We find that many of our brides fall in love with the Gloss Peel. This peel improves the texture and tone of the skin, with only a few days of redness and peeling.
- Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells from the skin, resulting in softer and smoother skin. Microdermabrasion can improve the texture of your skin without any downtime.
- Botox – We don’t want you to look angry as you walk down the aisle! Many young women find that as they concentrate, they furrow their brow, which leads to a deep wrinkle between their brow. Botox can relax the muscles that cause this motion, so that the deep wrinkle is not present in the wedding pictures. Dr. Tareen specializes in a very natural look, so none of your guests will know that you’ve had Botox to the area.
- Latisse – Latisse prompts the eyelashes to grow thicker and longer prior to normal eyelash shedding period. The result is longer, plumper lashes without the need for heavy mascara or annoying false eyelashes.
