Many brides-to-be have dreamed of their wedding day long before they ever said “yes” to their partner. You want your wedding day to be perfect down to the last detail, but between seating charts, dress-hunting, florists and writing your vows, finding the time to focus on yourself before your special day can feel impossible. At Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, we offer a wide array of quick, minimally-invasive body contouring, anti-aging or skin rejuvenating bridal treatments that can be performed in the weeks or months before your wedding to allow you to look radiant and flawless when it’s finally time to say “I do.”
Body-Contouring with SculpSure
Before you even begin to worry about the alterations needed for your dream dress, SculpSure is the noninvasive fat reduction treatment that allows you to make alterations to your figure without surgery or downtime. You’ve likely been eating right and working out regularly as you countdown to your big day, but spot-reduction through diet and exercise alone isn’t always attainable. While you may be able to shed some excess weight, it’s impossible to control where you lose that weight from. Even if you’re already at your ideal weight and are otherwise healthy, stubborn problem areas can easily make you feel less than your best on a day that should feel perfect.
SculpSure is the FDA-approved breakthrough procedure that allows you to take back control of your body—and your wedding— by reducing pesky pockets of fat permanently in just 25 minutes. SculpSure uses focused thermal light energy to heat fat cells under the skin gently and irreparably damage them. Over time, the body naturally processes and eliminates these fat cells for a slimmer and sleeker physique. With each SculpSure treatment session, future brides can see up to a 24 percent reduction in fat from their targeted areas, which can include:
- Under the chin
- Love handles
- Back or bra fat
- Inner or outer thighs
The fat cells treated during your Sculpsure procedure will not return or regenerate, so you can banish problem spots for good long before your special day arrives. The results of Sculpsure, however, are not immediate, so it is essential to leave enough time before your wedding day for your new body contours to emerge. You may see a noticeable reduction in fat in as little as six weeks, but most patients will experience their best results after 12 weeks. With no discomfort, anesthesia or scars to worry about, SculpSure can sculpt the body you’re proud to flaunt in your wedding dress.
Skin Tightening with Ultherapy
On the day where all eyes and cameras will be on you and your partner, there is a great deal of pressure for your skin to look ageless and flawless for your wedding, especially in the areas that will be exposed, like your face and neck. As you get older, it is normal for the skin to slowly lose it’s taut and firm appearance as a result of gravity, sun exposure and genetics. But while it’s easy to conceal certain signs of aging with the right amount of makeup, skin that is beginning to display signs of laxity or droops and sags isn’t as easy for brides to hide.
In the past, these symptoms of aging could only be reversed through invasive cosmetic surgery—which isn’t always practical for most brides-to-be. Today, advances in cosmetic procedures have introduced Ultherapy, the noninvasive facelift alternative that utilizes ultrasound therapy to lift and tighten the skin without incisions, needles or lengthy periods of downtime. Ultherapy is safe, gentle and FDA-approved to lift and smooth the following areas:
- Under the chin
Unlike cosmetic lasers or other energy-based treatments, Ultherapy can bypass the surface of the skin without harming it to deliver ultrasonic energy deep into aging tissues to naturally stimulate new collagen and elastin production that improves your appearance over time. With a single hour-long treatment, Ultherapy will not only provide immediate enhancements to your skin but will continue to firm and smooth skin with optimal results revealed after about two to three months. The rejuvenated results of Ultherapy can last for several years, meaning you’ll look great when you say “I do,” and well into your marriage before aging sets in again.
Facial Rejuvenation with Injectables
For busy brides in need of a last minute rejuvenation before tying the knot, Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists offers a full suite of dermal fillers and injectable treatments to combat and erase visible signs of aging in as little as 15 minutes with minimal discomfort and zero downtime. From wrinkle-relaxers like Botox and Dysport to dermal fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Bellafill and Sculptra, Dr. Marotta can help you to reverse lines, wrinkles and facial volume loss before your big day with subtle yet stunning temporary results.
Injectable treatments are a great way to test-drive your rejuvenated results before your wedding and see if you are satisfied with the outcome, and are more economical and immediate than other noninvasive cosmetic procedures available today. Whether you are only troubled by the appearance of a couple of fine lines or wish to opt for a “liquid facelift,” Dr. Marotta will help you to determine which injectable or injectables will provide the best results for you on a timeline that works with your wedding date. You may even decide to plump up thin or aging lips to make that first kiss as a married couple all the more special.
Skin Resurfacing with Chemical Peels
If signs of aging are not the only aesthetic concerns you have regarding your skin, chemical peels are a highly-effective nonsurgical treatment that will banish any blemishes on the surface of your skin for a bright and youthful complexion on your special day. Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical exfoliant that removes the damaged surface layers of your skin. The strength and efficacy of your peel, as well as the amount of downtime you can afford, can all be customized to fit into your hectic wedding plans. At Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, we offer medium to deep chemical peels that can address the following concerns:
- Sun and age spots on the face and body
- Fine lines to deep-set wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Skin Lesions
- Oily complexions
As there is some downtime required with chemical peels, you’ll want to be sure you don’t save this treatment for the last minute, as there may be some residual redness, swelling and skin-peeling that lingers for one to three weeks after your procedure depending on the strength grade of the peel. However, once the healthy new layer of skin cells have emerged, your skin will be radiant and flawless for when you do walk down the aisle.
Blemish-Reduction with Dermalinfusion
For fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration or acne, Dermalinfusion is a quick and gentle noninvasive procedure that works to delicately exfoliate the outer layer of your skin using a specialized diamond-tipped wand. After the skin’s surface has been exfoliated, you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of speciality serums that are applied to address anything from your skin tone and texture to restoring moisture and suppleness to your skin. Dermalinfusion treatments take just 50 minutes, require no downtime, and can be performed anywhere on your body where you might have concerns for glowing, radiant skin on your big day.
Skin Rejuvenation with Therapeutic Facials
The therapeutic facials we offer at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists are each uniquely formulated to promote healthy skin or reduce the appearance of moderate to severe signs of aging. Whether you need to soothe your skin, correct blemishes or restore balance and moisture to your complexion, our facials utilize a custom combination of medical-grade skin care productions to provide stunning results before you walk down the aisle. Each facial treatment takes only 50 minutes to complete, and requires no downtime.
