Mothers of brides/grooms! It’s technically your child’s big day, but it’s definitely a major moment for you too. We think mums need some pre-wedding pampering too, and what better excuse than your child’s wedding to finally fix that nagging skincare concern?

As always, how high or low-maintenance you want to be is entirely up to you – the focus is still ensuring your child has a special, unforgettable day! But if you want to go all in, or if you are just looking for some rough guidelines, we’ve got your back.

We’ve prepared a comprehensive beauty timeline: how to fix any skincare concerns you might have and when to schedule it:


5-6 MONTHS BEFORE:

Pigmentation & Other Blemishes
If you have any pigmentation blemishes, such as freckles, age spots or melasma, that you’d like to get rid of before the wedding, it’s best to get it treated early. Stubborn pigmentation can be treated by laser treatments, which take a while due to necessary intervals in between treatment sessions.

Laser treatments are well tolerated by most patients, and have the side effect of boosting collagen production while reducing the appearance of fine lines – a great way of rejuvenating your skin while remaining non-invasive with no downtime!

Dark Eye Circles
As with pigmentation, stubborn dark eye circles should be treated early as well. Dark eye circles can be treated with eye laser treatments – our signature laser treatment reduces dark pigment and manages the appearance of blood vessels, both of which can be causes of your dark eye circles.

Our eye facials are also specially formulated for dark eye circles – this involves an infusion of serums into the undereye area with specialised machines, helping to brighten and lighten dark circles!

Exercise
Start an exercise regimen and stick to it, as a way of toning up before your child’s big day. Pilates and yoga are great exercises that help to tone up your body while going gentle on the joints. Going for a morning hike is a great way to get some cardio exercise, and if you go with your child, that makes for a great bonding time too!


Facials for Radiant Skin
You’d most likely want to have glowing, radiant skin for your child’s big day. Our Radiance or Rejuvenation facials are great for achieving just that – mild enzyme peels help to speed up cellular turnover, brightening your skin while treating sun damage, fine lines or dehydrated skin.

Microdermabrasion and hydradermabrasion are great for exfoliating dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new skin, giving you a smoother and more radiant complexion. Hydradermabrasion has the added effect of making your skin look dewy, thanks to the extra serums infused into your skin through our special machine.

And the great thing is, these are all non-invasive treatments with no pain or downtime – what better way to prepare your skin for the wedding than a relaxing facial, are we right?


3 MONTHS BEFORE:

Ultherapy for Skin Lifting & Tightening
Lift sagging skin before the big day with Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment approved by the U.S. FDA. Think of it as a non-surgical facelift: Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to safely tighten loose skin and smooth out wrinkles, while boosting collagen production.

While some patients see an immediate lifting effect, the ultimate results of Ultherapy gradually appears over the next 3 months, as part of your body’s natural collagen regeneration process that gradually lifts and tightens skin on your face, neck, chest, or double chin.

Hair & Makeup Trials
If you are looking to perm or straighten your hair, now’s the time. Or if you want a specific hairstyle or makeup look, try to find a couple of reference pictures so that you and your hairstylist/makeup artist are on the same page.

If you’re going together with your daughter or daughter-in-law, this could make for a good bonding session as well!


Eyebrow Grooming
If you don’t quite trust yourself to handle your brows, leave it in the hands of a professional instead. If you are looking to tint your brows or go for eyebrow embroidery, now’s a good time to do it too!


1 MONTH BEFORE:

Anti-Wrinkle Injections/Fillers
Banish unwanted frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet with anti-wrinkle injections. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually kick in a couple of days after the treatment, and the results usually for about 4 months, so a good time for such treatments would usually be a month before.

Fillers are great for treating deep-set wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds or laugh lines, as well as sunken tear troughs or hollow cheeks. The effect is immediate with little to no downtime!

Dermalift
If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to tighten and lift your skin before your child’s big day, Dermalift could be an option for you. This treatment lifts and tightens your skin with a series of micro-injections – most patients see a visible lift immediately! The lifting and tightening effects of Dermalift continue over the next 5-10 days and can last for about 4 months. Click here to find out more.


1 WEEK BEFORE:

Have your last (gentle!) facial
Now’s the time to have one last facial before your child’s big day. Make sure there are no harsh or abrasive procedures – such as extraction – involved! Try a hydrating facial to get that dewy glow, or a mild enzyme peel to gently exfoliate your skin, brightening your complexion for the big day.


Cut down on salt & sugar
As much as we love our sweets and snacks, salt can cause puffiness, while sugar can wreak havoc on our complexions. Try to abstain from these as much as you can to prevent any last-minute skin problems or complications!


1 DAY BEFORE:

Manicure/Pedicure
Go with a gel nail polish to prevent any unsightly chips during the wedding.


Sleep! & Hydrate
Amidst all the planning (and excitement), try to get some rest. This best ensures that you look fresh and radiant the next day.

And there we have it! Relax and enjoy yourself – it’s your child’s big day, and it’s going to be a day filled with emotions, memories, and love. As you watch your child walk down the aisle, we bet you’re going to be so proud!

Sunken Tear Troughs or Dark Eye Circles?

Continually looking like you’ve been having sleepless nights and not quite enjoying it? Undereye concealers not quite doing their job? Panda eyes are the bane of many a woman’s existence.

But did you know these panda eyes could actually be caused by 2 things – either sunken tear troughs or dark eye circles? Or even both?

Telling them apart can sometimes be tricky, but we’ll help you break it down:

Sunken Tear Troughs
Tear troughs refer to the grooves between your lower eyelid and your cheek. These can create the illusion of dark circles around our eyes, making us look tired even when we’ve had enough sleep.

HOW NOW?
Fortunately, we can reduce the appearance of sunken tear troughs with hyaluronic acid fillers – this is a simple, non-surgical, 30-min procedure with close to no downtime. And as with most fillers, results can be seen immediately!


Dark Eye Circles
Dark eye circles can be caused by the darkening of your skin or the prominence of the blood vessels in your undereye area.

Try pushing slightly on your undereye area – if the darkness disappears, it means that our dark eye circles is most likely caused by the blood vessels under your skin, or it could be a shadow caused by sunken tear troughs or eye bags.

We all know too that the lack of sleep can contribute to the appearance of unwanted panda eyes, but other causes of dark eye circles include:

  • Genetics
    Unfortunately, dark eye circles can also be an inherited trait, and could have already appeared in your childhood years. Not to fret totally though, as some do outgrow their dark circles over time!

  • Allergies
    Nasal congestion due to allergies can sometimes dilate the blood vessels around your eye area, causing them to appear darker.

  • Alcohol
    Alcohol can dehydrate your skin, making the blood vessels around our undereye area more prominent. This is caused by excessive alcohol consumption though, so a glass or 2 of vino is still fine, but you might want to rethink the 3rd of 4th glass.

  • Bad habits!
    Are you a frequent eye-rubber? Constant eye rubbing, or other bad habits such as not putting sunscreen can cause hyperpigmentation, which causes the skin around your eye area to darken.


HOW NOW?
How then can we get rid of these eye woes?

Facials that are specially targeted to treat dark eye circles, such as our Dark Eye Rings facial, are great for brightening and lightening dark eye circles.

This involves the infusion of medical-grade serums with specialised machines, to allow the active ingredients to better penetrate your undereye area. This also hydrates your skin and improves blood circulation!

Laser treatments, such as our signature Eye 2 Laser treatment, have the effect of reducing blood vessel size and skin pigmentation, in turn reducing the appearance of dark eye circles. Such treatments are specially targeted for your undereye area.

Don’t fret though, we’re not going to zap your eyes! These are completely safe, and have no downtime. Feel free to wear makeup and resume your daily activities after!

They often say the eyes are the window to the soul. And while having an old soul is great, who wouldn’t want young, fresh-looking eyes?

People often assume plastic surgery is required when it comes to reversing our age, especially when it comes to the eye area. But with various aesthetic treatments these days, you can lift sagging eyebrows and get rid of wrinkles and dark eye circles – all without surgery.

And the best part is, most of these treatments have no downtime! Feel free to wear makeup and resume your daily routine immediately after your treatment.

  1. Ultherapy
    Think of Ultherapy as a non-surgical face lift – this non-invasive U.S. FDA-approved aesthetic treatment uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin, while smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.

    When applied to the eye area, Ultherapy has the effect of reducing drooping eyebrows, firming up skin around the eye area, and stimulating collagen production.

  2. Laser Treatments
    Don’t worry! We’re not going to zap your eyes – laser treatments are completely safe. They work by sending pulses of light into your skin, and this has the effect of reducing blood vessel size and pigmentation – both of which could be the causes of your dark eye circles.

    Our signature Eye 2 Laser treatment specifically targets and treats dark eye rings, reducing the appearance of those unwanted panda eyes!

  3. Radiofrequency
    This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency waves, which when directed into your skin, helps to stimulate collagen production and clear up mild undereye puffiness.

  4. Anti-Wrinkle Injections
    Reduce the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines with anti-wrinkle injections. These injections work by temporarily reducing muscle contractions at the treatment area. This in turn allows the muscles around your eye to relax, and has the effect of reducing wrinkles around your eye area.

  5. Fillers for Sunken Tear Troughs
    Sunken tear troughs are caused by depressions under your eyes, and can create the illusion of dark eye circles, making your undereyes look darker than they really are.

    Luckily, this can be fixed without the need for surgery! Fillers are a safe alternative, and give natural results with minimal downtime.

Dark circles, fine lines, eye bags – or commonly also known as the bane of our existence. We’re sure we can safely say that most of us have tried many methods of getting rid of them: ranging from expensive night creams to the good ol’ cucumbers-on-your-eyes hack, but sometimes, we need just a little bit more to get rid of those tired eyes.

Eye Treatments for Dark Eye Circles, Fine Lines, Eye Bags | LS Aesthetic Clinic
Eye facials – or facial treatments specially for your eye area – are specially formulated to treat dark eye rings, fine lines, and mild eye bags while caring for the delicate skin around your eye. Depending on your problem or concern, there are different types of eye facials available:

  1. Dark Eye Rings Facial
    This involves the infusion of medical-grade serums with specialised machines, to allow the active ingredients to better penetrate your undereye area, brightening and lightening dark eye circles. This also hydrates your skin and improves blood circulation!

  3. Radiofrequency Eye Facial
    Radiofrequency, or RF for short, is a facial treatment that stimulates collagen production, lifts and tightens sagging skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. When applied to the undereye area, it has the effect of reducing mild eyebags or puffiness, as well as firming up the skin around your eyes.

Apart from facials, laser treatments are also a safe, non-invasive method of reducing the appearance of dark eye rings and fine lines with no downtime. Say goodbye to tired eyes!
