Becker Cosmetic is passionate about assisting brides on their skincare journey for their special day! We will make sure you’re the most confident version of yourself when that day finally comes by taking the following steps towards healthier, glowing skin.

Establishing a Consistent Skincare Regime

The most important step is to establish a consistent skincare regimen at home. Caring for your skin in the morning and at night with professional grade products will give your skin the exfoliation, nutrients, and moisture required for optimal health. Paired with in-office treatments, a professional home care regimen will protect your skincare investment and provide the best results possible.

Where to Begin Your Bridal Skincare

Start with corrective treatments six months prior to your big day. An example of a “corrective treatment” is laser hair reduction, which is a wonderful choice for those who struggle with painful ingrown hairs or who don’t want to shave on a honeymoon vacation. For brown spots, fine lines, and unwanted pigment on your face, options include BroadBand Light (BBL), MOXI, chemical peels, or microneedling.

The Magic of CoolSculpting Treatment

If you’ve been working hard to fit into that gorgeous dress but are still twenty pounds from your goal weight, another corrective service could include noninvasive body sculpting. While not a weight loss treatment, CoolSculpting eliminates a minimum of 20% of targeted fat without needles or downtime. This treatment takes up to three months to see your final result, so this gives you plenty of time before the wedding!

Fine-tuning Your Skin for the Perfect Glow

Three months prior is the time to fine-tune your skin and achieve that perfect glow. Start by introducing the eyelash growth serum, Latisse, a prescription-grade product that lengthens lashes in four weeks. By week twelve, your lashes will have that “wow” factor with both increased length and fullness. Keep your skin happy and hydrated by exfoliating and providing deep-cleansing with a HydraFacial.

Big MUST Treatments for the Big Day

If injectables are desired, get them two months before the wedding. Make sure to book a lash lift and tint to curl and darken lashes, bringing a flirtier look for the big day –and to replace the need for mascara for honeymooning. Finally, add a polishing Deluxe HydraFacial with dermaplaning 2-4 days before the wedding to give your skin ultimate radiance and help with flawless makeup application.

We know that you’ll look gorgeous regardless, but we hope these tips will help you feel your best. I have been a practicing Master Esthetician for over five years, and these are the preparations I took for my own wedding. I look forward to working with you and beginning your skincare journey six months ahead of the special day!
