Once you say “YES!” and the wedding planning begins, you can start thinking about which cosmetic treatments you want. You also need to understand the timeline for your med spa treatments and ensure that you plan correctly. Here are some of the most popular pre-wedding med spa treatments and when to get them!

How Far in Advance Should I Start?

We recommend starting at least 6-12 months ahead of time for younger brides and 12-18 months for more seasoned brides. “It’s always better to start earlier than you need and opt for an early consultation. Once we discuss your individual concerns, we can create a more specific timeline for an ideal outcome,” says Dr. Amiry.

The Pre-Wedding Timeline

Consultation- 12-18 Months Out

We recommend scheduling your consultation at least 12 months out. The types of treatment you need depend on your goals, as well as the condition of your skin. Each bride is unique and so is her skin. We create personalized, custom treatment plans based on your skin’s condition, concerns, and goals.

Jawline Contouring 6-12 Months Out

If you are interested in CoolSculpting treatments to get rid of a double chin or create a more aesthetically pleasing jaw line, we recommend starting 6-12 months out. This is especially true if you are also interested in skin tightening treatments, as CoolSculpting should be done first.

Alternatively, Kybella injections can dissolve double chin fat, but it requires a series of treatments. Starting early gives you plenty of time to complete the treatments and see the full effects.

Med Spa Treatments 6-9 Months Out

Treatments that target collagen production and skin rejuvenation need physical time for the results to reach optimal levels. Also, some treatments require a series. So, brides should plan to start these treatments at least 6-9 months out to see full results. The following treatments are recommended to address skin tone, texture, laxity and tightening, as well as acne.

Skin Tone & Texture

Combination treatments work the best for skin rejuvenation. Two of the popular service combinations include BBL and Halo or BBL and Moxi. These treatments rejuvenate skin, address discoloration, and sun damage, as well as treating redness and broken capillaries.

Skin Laxity (Loose Skin)

Some of our favorite treatments to tighten skin include Morpheus8, EMTONE, Microneedling with SkinPen, Sculptra and Hyperdilute Radiesse.

Acne Treatments Before a Wedding

For brides with acne concerns, we need to address active acne before we can treat scarring, hyperpigmentation, or erythema. We have several treatments that can help with these concerns. Some of these include DiamondGlow, Chemical Peels, Forever Clear BBL and Medical-grade skin care.

CoolSculpting Fat Reduction

One of the most popular pre-wedding med spa treatments in Virginia is body contouring. There are many options to choose from, depending on your goals. If you want a slimmer, more toned physique before you walk down the aisle, CoolSculpting might be the perfect option. This treatment uses cold technology to freeze away stubborn fat. It treats nine different areas including:

  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Chin
  • Back
  • And more

Coolsculpting treatment should begin 4-6 months before the big day!

Biostimulating Dermal Fillers

These fillers work by boosting collagen production. There are different brands of biostimulatory fillers, but they all take time to show improvement. We recommend starting this treatment 3-6 months before your wedding.

HA Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane can enhance your features and soften any lines. Add a bit of volume to your lips or cheeks, get rid of those pesky lines, or banish dark circles with these fillers.

While these fillers can take years off your face and highlight your natural beauty, they do require a bit of recovery. Additionally, you want to let the fillers really settle, so we recommend scheduling HA filler treatments 1-2 months out.


Neuromodulators take very little time to take effect so it’s important to time them right. You want to complete treatment at least two weeks prior to the wedding but we recommend at least 4 weeks so you can make small adjustments if needed.

Week of the Wedding

For glowing skin on your special day, we recommend HydraFacial. This ensures that you get glowing, hydrated, smooth skin.
