Embracing life moments, one treatment at a time

April 3, 2023


Preparing for a significant event can be overwhelming, leaving you more stressed than excited. While there’s more to preparing for a special occasion than just looking and feeling good, it certainly sets the tone for the entire experience.

Depending on your preferences, you may opt for a single treatment or a series of services to achieve the best possible results. Whether it’s your wedding day, going on a special vacation or any other occasion where you want to shine, we’ve created a comprehensive treatment timeline to help you stay relax and organized throughout the preparation process!


To kickstart your incredible beauty preparation, the first step is to book a consultation. Our team of skin experts will work on a personalized treatments plan that answer your objectives and suits your timeframe.


By starting your beauty routine several months in advance of an event, you can ensure to tackle all concerns you may have and give yourself adequate time to maximize treatment results. Body contouring treatments, as well as some of our most popular skin tightening treatments typically require time to display results or may require multiple sessions to ensure lasting outcomes that you’ll love for years to come! Here are a few popular treatments to consider for your pre-event preparation


Even with dedicated efforts in diet and exercise, stubborn pockets of fat can be frustratingly difficult to eliminate. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that targets and freezes fat cells (adipocytes). The frozen adipocytes eventually die and are eliminated by the body without harming the surrounding tissue. While each session may take only 30 minutes to an hour, multiple sessions spread over several months will yield the best results. Therefore, we recommend scheduling your CoolSculpting treatments three to six months ahead of your event.


Thermage® is a non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency to tighten and lift the skin, stimulate collagen production and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Perfect to plan before a special event, it helps to improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin, making it look smoother, firmer and more youthful. Thermage® can be used to target specific areas of concern such as the face, eyes, neck, arms and abdomen to help you achieve your desired results. Results are usually observed after two or three months, but the skin appearance will continue to improve over six months after the treatment.


Ulthera® uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin on the face, eyebrows, neck and décolleté. By stimulating collagen production, it can help improve the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines. The results are gradual and it may take two to three months to see the effects, the skin appearance will be improving over six months after the treatment.

Clear & Brilliant®

Clear & Brilliant® is a type of laser treatment that can improve the texture, tone and overall appearance of the skin. Many people choose to undergo Clear & Brilliant® before a special event to achieve a more radiant and youthful complexion. The timeline for getting this treatment will depend on your individual skin type and concerns. Used as a radiant cure, it is recommended to start Clear & Brilliant® at least three to six months before the big day with a minimum of three treatments spaces two to four weeks apart. This timeline allows for optimal results to be achieved and for any potential side effects, such as redness or flaking to subside before the event. It also allows time for any touch-up treatments that may be needed to address any remaining concerns.


The period leading up to your event is an ideal time to focus on problem areas and address specific skin concerns. While our aesthetic procedures do not require months of recovery time, a few extra weeks of attention and care can significantly enhance the results. For optimal outcomes, we recommend scheduling these treatments two to three months before your event.

Hybrid and Fractional Lasers

Do you have specific skin concerns, such as acne scars, sun damage or enlarged pores? If so, our laser skin treatments are the perfect solution! Our advanced laser technologies create a controlled injury to the skin, which prompts the production of collagen and elastin – two vital proteins that contribute to a plump, even and smooth complexion. Our skin experts personalize every laser treatment to meet your objectives, skin condition, and tolerance for downtime resulting in unique recovery times for each patient. To be on the safe side, we recommend planning a couple of months for your skin to fully recover before attending a significant event or beach vacations.

Glycolic Peeling

Chemical peelings allow to exfoliate dead or damaged skin cells, revealing healthier and more vibrant skin, improving its texture and tone. Our experts will perform a skin analysis during your consultation to determine the level of exfoliation your skin needs. We recommend scheduling a chemical peeling at least two weeks before your event.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin. This treatment can help improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and promote collagen production.


Electromechanical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a treatment that involves the use of electrical currents to stimulate muscle contractions. It can be beneficial before a special event as it can, depending on the mode chosen, reduce tissue congestion, tone and shape muscles or give more definition to certain muscles. Electone can be planned alone or after you have completed your CoolSculpting treatment plan.


These procedures require minimal downtime, although a few weeks may be necessary for swelling to subside and for the full effects of the treatments to become apparent. With careful planning, these treatments can elevate your beauty regimen prior to your event.

Neuromodulators (such as Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin® or Nuceiva®)

This popular and highly effective treatment is the perfect addition to your beauty routine before an event or a trip. When administered by a professional, neuromodulators are injected into the facial muscles to prevent them from contracting, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming. Although highly effective, neuromodulators require repeat injections every three to five months. A helpful tip is to plan your injections appointments in advance so that they fall evenly between your event, allowing your results to be at their best for your big day.

Dermal fillers

Many people choose to get dermal fillers before a special event to enhance their appearance and feel more confident on their big day. Dermal fillers can be used to plump up areas of the face, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. The timeline for getting dermal fillers will depend on the type of filler used and the results you are looking for. In general, it is recommended to get dermal fillers at least two weeks before an event to allow time for any swelling or bruising to subside and for the results to fully set in. However, some types of fillers, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, can provide immediate results that continue to improve over the course of several days. If you are considering getting dermal fillers for a special day, it is important to consult with an experienced professional to discuss your goals and create a personalized treatment plan that fits your timeline.


No one is immune to the harmful effects of the sun, regardless of age and skin type. Excessive exposure to the sun can cause premature aging, wrinkles, sagging skin and hyperpigmentation. However, pulsed light treatments can be beneficial for the skin by targeting and eliminating imperfections, including sun damage such as hyperpigmentation. Photorejuvenation (IPL) is most effective when done in a series of treatments and it is recommended to allow a few weeks of healing time for optimal results. To ensure that your skin is in its best condition, schedule your final photorejuvenation session at least four weeks before your event or a trip.


As your event approaches, it’s important to focus on treatments to hydrate your skin to give it maximum glow.


HydraFacial® is a type of hydradermabrasion and as such is an all-in-one cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and personalized treatment that can be done on its own or combined with other treatments. Since the HydraFacial require no downtime and yields immediate results, it’s an ideal treatment to add to your beauty routine just before an event. It will leave your skin hydrated and refreshed, making it the perfect final step to your pre-event preparations

Bela MD

Bela Md is another form of hydradermabrasion and is the perfect treatment to deep cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Many people choose to undergo Bela MD treatments before an event to achieve a fresh, glowing complexion. It can be planned as a glow treatment a few days before an event or as a series of two or three treatments spaced two to four weeks apart.

SkinCeuticals Facials

The SkinCeuticals anti-aging facial deeply hydrates the skin to brighten the complexion and soften fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment has a deep anti-aging action, which helps improve the texture and appearance of the skin. The SkinCeuticals anti-acne facial on the other hand deep cleanse, improve the skin texture, and reduces imperfections. A series of treatments can be planned every two weeks or in combination with other treatments prior to a special occasion for maximum results.
