Make Sure Your Skin is Shining: Preparing for Your Next Special Event

View Laser Skin Rejuvenation’s Guide to Treatment Timing

Are you getting ready for a wedding, birthday party, or another special event? To feel prepped and polished ahead of your big day, how far in advance should you schedule your aesthetic treatments? Read on to find out how you can achieve a healthy glow for shining skin at your upcoming event!

Depigmentation Program - 6 months before

For a treatment you can build into your skincare regime from the comfort of home, try the comprehensive ZO hyperpigmentation kit designed to brighten skin and restore overall skin health. This innovative, physician-directed product line includes bio-engineered complexes, plant stem cell components, and unique delivery systems and formulations and treats a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions. 

CoolSculpting - two sessions at 6 & 4 months before

CoolSculpting is a safe, non-surgical body contouring treatment that targets stubborn fat cells in the waist, belly, back, arms, legs, and thighs. It offers noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction with results in as little as 3 weeks that will continue for up to 4-6 months.

CO2 Laser - 6 months before

If your mirror is reflecting ​fine lines, wrinkles, crepey skin, scarring, poor skin laxity, stretch marks, vessels, sun damage, photoaging, brown spots, hyper-pigmentation, and/or skin discolouration, this may be the ideal treatment for you! As one of Dr. Ray's specialties, this resurfacing treatment delivers incredible skin rejuvenation with noticeable results starting four weeks post-treatment and continued improvement over six months.  

RF Microneedling - 6 months before

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatments include Morpheus8 and Potenza technology, which trigger the body’s natural healing response to promote the production of new collagen and elastin to firm and tighten the skin. This treatment may also be used to treat active cystic acne and scarring. For optimal results, we typically recommend combining this treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or AQ Skin Solutions Patented Growth Factor.

PRP - 6 weeks to 6 months before

Add a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment to your CO2 or RF microneedling treatment to improve healing time and overall results by approximately 30%. PRP may also be injected as a standalone treatment ​to help address scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and other skin conditions.. Dr. Ray typically recommends three sessions, three months apart (timing with respective laser treatments) or six weeks to six months before as a standalone treatment.

Sofwave - 4 months before

We all want to age gracefully, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a little boost to help us feel fabulous! If you’re looking to soften the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, aging, crow’s feet, barcode lines, sagging skin, and/or submental laxity, this non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment that stimulates collagen production and tightens loose skin is your best bet. Plan for one or two treatments one month apart, and expect immediate results that will continue to improve in the three to six month period after treatment.

IPL Photo-Rejuvenation - series of four treatments, starting 3-4 months before

If you often forgot your sunscreen in the past, this intense pulsed light (IPL) procedure will be your best friend. Commonly used to improve the appearance of sun damage, redness, rosacea, brown spots, age spots, freckles, and broken capillaries. This treatment can brighten skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in a firmer, smoother skin texture. You’ll typically see noticeable results within one to three weeks, and four sessions two weeks apart are recommended for optimal correction and longer-lasting benefits. 

Botox & Dermal Filler - 6 weeks before

Separately or combined for an optimal result, these two treatments rejuvenate your appearance for a more youthful, rested, and natural look. Commonly used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, aging, scarring, frown lines, tear troughs (eye bags), marionette lines, crow’s feet, barcode lines, neck creases, gummy smiles, lip puckering, and more, you’ll enjoy Botox results within 2-3 days and dermal filler results immediately after treatment. 

HydraFacial MD - 6 weeks & 1 week before

Designed for all skin types and targeting fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, inflammation, enlarged pores, decreased elasticity, lack of vibrancy, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, brown spots, scarring, and oily or congested skin, this soothing treatment hydrates, exfoliates, and detoxifies the skin. Results are apparent after just one treatment and may last a few weeks, but we highly recommended continued treatments to maintain results.

If you plan ahead, you’ll arrive at every special event feeling confident and ready to strike a pose for the camera. Please keep in mind that these are estimated guidelines and each individual will have different personalized, comprehensive treatment plans. Following Dr. Ray and our team’s advice will give you the best, most natural result. Cheers to celebrating with shining skin and a happy heart!
