Wedding skin SOS | Your skin survival guide

Wedding skin SOS …hurry and evaluate your skincare routine. Many brides and grooms worry about their wedding diet but what about their skin diet? I know I personally worried about both. As with anything, the earlier you start the better. Typically we recommend a minimum of three months if you are not already following a skincare regimen. Let’s see how you can get your best wedding glow (and photos, of course).

Wedding Skin SOS 1: Evaluate your current routine.

First off, if you are trying to up your wedding skin game then a consultation is essential. At Luxe Appearance we will completely analyse your skin and help you decide what treatments or product are best for the results you want.

On your first consultation bring your usual skincare routine on your first consultation and our skin therapist will go through every step with you. Are you using the right skincare for the results you need? We’ll find out!

Wedding Skin SOS 2: Is there anything you want to change?

Fine lines and wrinkles
Dull Skin
Acne and Congestion
Loose or Sagging Skin
Acne Scarring
Uneven Skin Tone

Wedding Skin SOS 3: Decide on treatments that work best

Fine Lines and Wrinkles: for fine lines and wrinkles there are a few different treatments that can help.


Botox is best for improving lines as well as preventing new ones! For crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines or smoker’s lines, Botox is an effective treatment for removing fine lines or even reducing larger ones, making you look much fresher. Botox lasts 3-4 months. For brides who have never had it before we recommend trying it at least one or two months before the wedding. This way we will know exactly what you are happy with and will be mid-treatment on the day!

Dermal Fillers

For sagging cheeks or a jowly face, dermal filler can be injected into the cheeks and along the cheekbone to lift the face. Dermal filler can also be used to increase the volume or change the shape of your lips.

PRP — Liquid Gold Facial

Using the most natural approach, we use your body’s own platelet-rich plasma and microneedle this back into the skin. With this therapy and device, we can encourage the skin to repair itself and diminish fine lines. Needling creates microchannels where we can add enriched PRP to your skin to not only encourage it to heal but add nutrients and growth factors. This treatment can also be used for dull skin or acne scarring.

Acne and Congestion

Acne is not just for teenagers! There is no age limit and many women suffer well into their 30’s or 40’s, particularly in times of stress (hello wedding!). For acne, the most important thing is a targeted skincare routine. Luxe Body hosts the SKIN MEDICA skincare range, Skin Medica is well renowned for an age-defying product rooted in science.

Acne Scarring

Acne scarring is caused by improperly taking care of active acne, once we have your acne under control we can work on improving the scarring. A course of micro needling with or without PRP is needed. Alternating daily facial care and micro needling can be very effective for keeping your acne under control and at the same time improving your overall skin condition.

If you are looking for more than one treatment that is not a problem! At your first skin analysis which is free, we can plan out your skin care regime until the big day – addressing any concerns and then maintaining your skin after.

We have many options to suit the wants and needs of different people. We assess what you need and what works for you. 

We hope this answers some of your questions, and if you do have any more questions, please contact our team.

Growth Factors and Their Importance in Skin Rejuvenation

Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins capable of stimulating your cells and causing rejuvenation. This helps to maintain the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Daily use of products containing growth factors has been scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin tone and texture. They are NOT Growth Hormones! Aging and sun-damaged skin require these to maintain itself. However, cells in aging skin make fewer growth factors than cells in youthful skin.
