Cosmetic treatments appear to be playing a bigger and more important role in wedding preparations than ever before. In fact, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, as many as 33 percent of brides-to-be consider cosmetic surgery before their weddings, and about one in 10 decide to make the investment. But it’s not just brides who want to look their best in all of those wedding photos — everyone from the maid-of-honor to the groom may go the extra mile before the big day.

Here are three non-invasive procedures that you might invest in before you walk down the aisle — whether as the bride or a member of the bridal party.

  • Botox: Botox decreases lines and wrinkles in the forehead area by limiting muscle activity, resulting in a smoother, younger-looking complexion. Planning a summer wedding? Botox is also sometimes used in the underarms to prevent excessive sweating.
  • Chemical peels: Chemical peels remove dead cells to reveal a soft, fresh layer of skin. Regular chemical peels can result in a dramatically rejuvenated appearance.
  • Dermal fillers: These treatments, which include Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse, restore lost skin volume, reduce lines and wrinkles and enhance lips. Dermal fillers may be appropriate for the bride, groom, parents of the happy couple and/or members of the wedding party.

If you are a Nashville-area bride, consider treating your bridesmaids to their choice of Botox, microdermabrasion and/or chemical peels. (Just be sure to schedule these procedures well before the wedding, to give any residual redness time to disappear.) Your bridal party will have the chance to bond, have fun and relax together, while also getting their skin into tip-top shape for your big day! Contact The Lett Center in Mt.
