Blushing Bride Guide

It’s no secret that wedding planning can be stressful, and this past year was probably one of the toughest yet for brides and grooms planning their big day. That’s why we believe that you deserve to take extra special care of yourself with some of our favorite pre-wedding treatments!

Our expert, Master Injector Whitney, offers skincare consultations to help you find the perfect plan. We keep things stress-free by creating a custom combination of pre-wedding beauty treatments that will make you feel more confident than ever!

Once you have completed your consultation, you will meet with our Patient Care Coordinator, Cori to create your customized beauty plan. Ideally, we recommend consultations be scheduled 9-12 months before the big day to achieve the best results. But not to worry! If you don’t have that much time left, we can customize treatments for you as well!

Here are some of our favorite treatments for couples:

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the perfect way to get ready for your destination wedding or tropical honeymoon! A series of 3-6 treatments, scheduled 6-8 weeks apart, is required for the best results. That’s why we recommend starting your laser hair removal treatments 9-12 months prior to your wedding day!


Microneedling is perfect for just about everyone! It treats various scars, wrinkles and large pores on the face to make your skin extra smooth. This is another treatment that we recommend starting 9-12 months out.


Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, can be done 1-3 months before your wedding. We use this minimally invasive procedure to renew skin tone and texture. It has been shown to reduce signs of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns.


Botox is for everyone! That’s right, even the groom and groomsmen — they love their

“Brotox!” You can find answers to all of your Botox questions here on our blog!

Dermal FIllers

Dermal Fillers can also be done 1-3 months out. This treatment diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, and folds to give them a natural looking fullness that makes your skin radiant and more youthful. Who doesn’t want that?


Don’t worry about being last-minute with this one! Our HydraFacial treatments can be done just 1 week before your big day. Through a patented 3-step process, HydraFacials cleanse, hydrate, and protect your skin. It’s relaxing AND painless! You’ll notice radiant, glowing skin immediately, and it typically lasts between 5-7 days or even longer in some cases.


Dermaplaning is the perfect compliment to HydraFacials and can also be done 1 week out! You’ve probably seen this on social media lately — it involves the gentle removal of the outermost layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz on the surface of your skin with a surgical blade. Dermaplaning has been shown to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase serum absorption, and facilitate mechanical exfoliation!

Lash Brow Tints

Brow and eyelash tinting uses semi-permanent dye to add color, shape and thickness to dull eyebrows and lashes in need of some new life. Eyelash tinting gives added definition and makes mascara unnecessary until the tint fades or the tinted eyelashes fall out and new ones grow in. Of course, you can still wear mascara for a more dramatic effect!

Now don’t forget: these timelines can apply to the Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, and Bridal Party, too! At Travis Shaw, MD, our mission is to get everyone wedding-ready this year! Text or call us to schedule your consultation today at (804)-775-4559.
