Popular Cosmetic Procedures Before Your Wedding

Wedding makeup

The days and months leading up to a wedding can be stressful, full of long nights planning everything from seating arrangements, to picking out flowers, and finalizing menus, to name a few. Eating well, staying hydrated, and getting enough rest and sleep in the months leading up to the big day can often fall by the wayside, taking a toll on the skin. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Melda Isaac offers a range of cosmetic skincare procedures to help revitalize and refresh tired skin for a fresh, youthful glow worthy of a cover on Martha Stewart Weddings!

Revitalize Before Your Wedding with Botox

Botox injections can help brides-to-be achieve a smooth and polished complexion before the wedding day. Botox shots fill in forehead wrinkles, smooth out frown lines and lip lines, and help to ease the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes, helping to take years off of the appearance in many cases. For best results, brides should plan ahead and make an appointment with Dr. Isaac for three months before the wedding.

Get a Pre-Wedding Glow with a Chemical Peel

A chemical peel can help minimize and correct a number of skin problems before a bride walks down the aisle. A pre-wedding chemical peel can help to:

  • reduce age spots
  • minimize freckles
  • reduce dark spots
  • treat some forms of acne

For best results, schedule a chemical peel three months before the wedding.


Regularly exfoliating the skin is essential in order to clear away the dead skin cells and residue that regular cleansing can leave behind from makeup, moisturizers, and environmental pollutants. A Dermasweep microdermabrasion treatment with Dr. Isaac can help to reduce blemishes, ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and result in generally smoother, more vibrant looking skin. A Dermasweep treatment should be scheduled six months before the wedding date, and typically requires several successive treatments.

Restylane and Sculptra

Cosmetic injections are an excellent solution for a busy bride to be up against a tight deadline. Dermal fillers, like Restylane and Sculptra, can help fill out wrinkles, plump up the lips, and reduce laugh lines. The ideal timeline is at least a month before the wedding, and can be completed in under an hour (allow time for swelling and redness to fade).
