Wedding Timeline: The Ultimate Guide to the Best Skin for your Big Day

Are you still happy dancing? We are! Congratulations on your engagement! We know weddings can be overwhelming–from the perfect venue to the cocktail menu. That’s a blog post for another day–let’s talk pre-wedding skin prep. We have the perfect formula for getting you and your skin ready for the big day so you can conquer that aisle and every photographer’s angle with confidence and grace. 

after the ring

We hope you’re still on cloud nine, and that planning your wedding celebration is going as blissfully as possible. We’re so happy you’re adding santāl skin to your to-do list, and we hope your time here is an opportunity for some well-deserved self care. First thing’s first, schedule a consultation w/ us! This will give you an opportunity to discuss at length your concerns and the goals you want to achieve before your big day! We can map out a timeline from the moment you walk in to the day you walk down the aisle.

plan your skincare

Medical grade skincare didn’t come to play, it came to win, and to produce results that you and your provider will be happy with. We recommend getting on a medical grade regimen as soon as possible. The products are packed with the best ingredients that are proven to show results, balance your skin, bring dead and dull cells to surface, and reveal bright, glowy, wedding worthy skin. 

plan your botox

Forget any heavy editing for those gorgeous wedding photos! Want an anti-aging, real-life filter for your skin? Botox will have you saying “I Do”! If you want a one-time treatment specifically for the big day, we recommend botox about 4 weeks prior to the day of your wedding. With that being said, you can start botox treatments any time! We recommend every 3-4 months, and can discuss a treatment plan at your initial consultation. 

plan your filler

At santāl skin, we’re in the business of natural and enhancing your existing features. We want you to look like you, but refreshed. When it comes to dermal filler, we start low and go slow. We recommend filler at least 6 months before wedding day. This gives enough time for healing, additional filler, and for the product to integrate into your tissues. 

plan your microneedling

Microneedling is a service that is wonderful for improving skin texture, pore size, and fine lines! We recommend a series of 3, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and at least 2 weeks before wedding day. You will want to stagger this treatment between your botox and/or filler appointment. We cannot do a microneedling service within 2 weeks of botox and/or filler being placed. See the example timeline below!

plan your chemical peels

Ready to wake up on your honeymoon with clear skin, even tone and texture? If your skin is more acne prone, or you struggle with pigment/scarring issues, we may recommend a series of 3 chemical peels before your big day! This treatment is also spaced 4-6 weeks apart. These can be performed at any time, but please schedule at least 4 weeks before wedding day!

plan your hydrafacials x santālLast, but certainly not least, we have the lush and effective hydrafacial x santāl. This is a service that your make-up artist will thank you for. In addition to the cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating power of the hydrafacial, we include a dermaplaning treatment as well as booster serum specific for the needs of your skin. Our goal is that you will leave santāl skin feeling fresh, vibrant, and renewed. BONUS: this treatment provides a smooth, even canvas for your day-of makeup, and we recommend 2 separate treatments. One the week of your bridal makeup trial, and another early in the week of your wedding day!
