Skinspirations Details Bridal Beauty Touch-Ups—Top 5 Ways to Look Your Best


Tampa Bay-based non-surgical cosmetic center Skinspirations details the best cosmetic procedures to consider before a wedding.


For many brides, looking and feeling their best on their wedding day is just as important as the venue or dress. As a result, cosmetic procedures are often making the wedding to-do list. As cosmetic procedures become increasingly popular among today's brides, many cosmetic facilities are now offering “bridal packages” to help women look their best on the big day. Skinspirations, a non-surgical cosmetic center in Tampa Bay, explains which procedures are essential for brides-to-be.

According to a recent survey, brides are now taking more time to plan their weddings—many start over a year before the big day, which leaves them ample time to achieve a perfect wedding day look (1). But for women with less time to plan, Skinspirations suggests considering the following minimally invasive options that require little or no downtime:

a.Benefits: Smooth, wrinkle-free skin and/or higher arched eyebrows (if requested).
b.When to start: Begin six months prior, and repeat as recommended.

a.Benefits: Detoxified and rejuvenated skin, resulting in a smoother appearance.
b.When to start: Can be done up to the day before the wedding.

3.Latisse Eyelash Treatment
a.Benefits: Doubled eyelash fullness.
b.When to start: Four months before wedding.

4.Regular Skincare Treatments
a.Benefits: Clearer, smoother, more even skin.
b.When to start: Six months before wedding.

5.Detox/HCG Diet
a.Benefits: Detoxes rid the body of toxins, and can also aid weight loss, which helps brides achieve a slimmer look for the big day.
b.When to start: At least 90 days before your wedding.

Dr. Cynthia Elliott, owner of Skinspirations, is a former emergency and trauma doctor who has been performing minimally-invasive procedures in Tampa Bay for the last several years. With a practice devoted exclusively to cosmetic and laser procedures, Dr. Elliott is often sought out to perform pre-nuptial treatments.

“Beautiful skin exudes confidence—exactly what women want on their wedding day,” said Dr. Elliott. “Many brides are seeking natural, subtle results that make them look refreshed.”

Beauty Versus the Beast: Common Mistakes to Avoid

While the above procedures can do much to improve the quality of the skin, Dr. Elliott warns against the following common mistakes that can undo the effectiveness of the procedures:

  • Avoid the sun and wear SPF every day. Too much UV radiation can lead to wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
  • Don't pick at your skin. Picking can cause blemishes to worsen.
  • If you have sensitivities, alert your practitioner before any procedures. Allergic reactions can cause unsightly side effects on the big day.
  • Don't get too many treatments at once—bombarding your skin with several products won't give you faster results, and could potentially cause an adverse reaction.
  • Don't have unreal expectations. Fillers and facial treatments can only do so much to change the quality of your skin.

When it comes to pre-nuptial procedures, Dr. Elliott also cautions against waiting until the last minute.

“Time is of the essence,” said Dr. Elliott. “You want to ensure that you make a full recovery in time for the wedding day—for the best possible results, schedule a consultation before deciding on any procedures.”
