Bridalplasty? Pre-Wedding Cosmetic Treatments

botox injections bristolThe Daily Mirror this week reported a growth in women booking cosmetic treatments and procedures in advance of their weddings, with a third of brides to be saying they were tempted to book some treatment in advance of the big day.

A series of celebrities have already paved the way, with Kim Kardashian and many others reported to have had botox and fillers in order to look her best for her wedding and indeed the photos.

The ‘bridalplasty’ phenomenon is not isolated to brides, there are many grooms, bridesmaids and mothers of brides and associated guests who book treatments to look their best too.

These cosmetic treatments are increasing in popularity all the time and are no longer the preserve of A-listers, a great many people have regular anti-ageing injections to keep their skin looking younger.

It is therefore unsurprising that regular users would plan to have treatment in advance of a big occasion, while a major event is also a time when those who have considered treatment to be an option might opt for having it for the first time.

However, it’s not all about botox, dermal fillers and lip enhancement.

Many clients are more concerned about addressing skin complaints, so that they appear smooth and flawless in photos. Difficult skin conditions such as acne, pigmentation or acne scarring can be difficult to disguise and can spoil a photo.

Eastender actress Lucy Speed had treatment for acne in advance of her wedding, combining intensive skincare with professional peels and microdermabrasion. Lucy says:

“My biggest worry was the size of my spots which could sometimes be so enormous and painful and impossible to disguise under make-up. They could actually distort the size of my face.”

“About a month before the wedding my complexion became entirely different; smooth, even and spot-free for the first time in 10 years.”
