To most women their wedding day is one of the most treasured moments in their life, countless hours and dollars are spent on ensuring the perfect dress, hair and make up is obtained.
Dr Rich and the team at the enRich Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery Clinic treat numerous brides who are searching for the latest and most effective treatments available to achieve beautiful, healthy and glowing skin for their big day.
A skin care regime is essential for anyone trying to achieve clear and lively skin. To learn more about your skin type speak to your doctor or dermatologist to create a skin care routine that is specifically tailored to your own personal needs. We generally recommend a combination of AHA/glycolic acid, niacinamide, vitamin C and simple no downtime, safe laser or LED light treatments.
Laser treatments have become a regular part of many women’s skin care regimes. Laser treatments can have no downtime and help to stimulate collagen and improve the network supporting the skin. We highly recommend fortnightly treatments with the Revlite or Genesis lasers, in combination with AHA/glycolic acid peels and a LED light therapy treatment.
Injectable treatments are not for everyone, however muscle relaxants can be helpful to consider prior to a wedding to help minimise the unwanted action of a frown! Muscle relaxants are helpful in preventing excessive or unwanted facial movement, and overtime can prevent lines from forming and stop existing lines from worsening. Injectable muscle relaxants can be used not only to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines, but also to reshape the contours of the lower face. Together with dermal fillers, injectable muscle relaxants can enhance the overall facial appearance.
The lines most commonly treated with dermal fillers include the cheek folds, the marionette lines, the vertical lip lines, and even sometimes the crow’s feet and the frown lines. The areas that require extra volume and definition typically include the cheeks, hollows or circles under the eyes, the temples, the jowls or jaw line, and the lips. Dermal fillers enable us to plump, enhance and reshape the features of our face by restoring volume and improving skin quality.
