When Should I Get Cosmetic Treatments Before a Big Event?

What skin treatments to do and when 

Preparing for a special occasion can be exhilarating and stressful at the same time, especially when you want to look your best. For some, this means getting a facial, but for others, it can involve undergoing several different aesthetic treatments. So whether it’s your wedding day, a red carpet event, or any other opportunity where all eyes are on you, we’ve compiled a complete treatment timeline to keep you cool, calm, and collected in preparation.

Schedule laser hair removal 9 to 12 months ahead

For the silkiest skin, undergo a series of six to eight laser hair removal treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Be sure to schedule your first treatment nine months before your big event. 

Schedule Potenza RF Microneedling 3 to 9 months ahead

Potenza RF Microneedling combines the best of both worlds to supercharge skin using microneedling and radiofrequency technologies. Plan for three to six sessions, each spaced four to six weeks apart. You’ll want to start between three to nine months before your event for a tighter, smoother, more radiant complexion

Schedule CoolSculpting 3 to 6 months ahead

Consider CoolSculpting, a non-invasive body contouring treatment to address stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise alone. The amount of treatments needed varies from person to person, but you’ll want your last treatment to be at least three to six months before that special occasion. 

Schedule injectables 4 to 6 weeks ahead

For fast, noticeable results with minimal downtime, turn to injectables like Botox and Juvéderm. Book these treatments four to six weeks in advance to allow the results to settle fully and look natural. 

Schedule Clear + Brilliant 2 weeks ahead 

Clear + Brilliant is a laser facial that can improve skin texture and tone, resulting in a radiant glow. For the best results, schedule this treatment at least two weeks in advance. 

Schedule Instant Glow Laser Facial 1 week ahead

Seeking a last-minute radiance boost? The Instant Glow Laser Facial offers quick, effective results, tightening and brightening your skin within a week of your big event. 

Schedule Hydrafacial 1-2 days ahead

For a final polish, opt for a Hydrafacial, which cleanses, extracts, and hydrates, all with no downtime (think of it like a facial on steroids). Book it one to two days ahead of time for that immediate pre-event glow.
