Keep Mum! Beauty secrets for Mothers of the Bride

Keep Mum! Beauty secrets for Mothers of the Bride

Brides might be the star of the wedding day, but the supporting cast are just as important, with Mother of the Bride playing a central role in the celebrations.

Away from their part in organising the wedding and everything that entails, mums should also take the opportunity to be “camera ready” for the big day. They may not be getting married, but all eyes will be on them as they appear in most of the photography, and sit at the top table as one of the most important members of the wedding party.

While it’s natural that preparations for their daughters take priority, it’s important for mums to take time for themselves in the run up to the wedding, after all so much effort goes into choosing the perfect Mother of the bride outfit, but skin treatments ahead of the nuptials should have the same level of importance.

A fresh, de-stressed and glowing complexion is top of the wish-list, and The Clinic have a bespoke range of treatments to help achieve this.

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive procedure restoring volume and elasticity, giving that much sought-after youthful lift to the face and a priceless boost to self-confidence. Even after one short treatment, the skin’s surface will have a marked improvement in suppleness, just in time for the wedding.

For something that lasts longer, anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles found on the skin’s surface. Injections are inserted into the skin to stop the muscles from contracting, causing the wrinkles to relax and soften laughter lines and signs of aging. The treatment is almost painless, showing signs of results within three to seven days, and lasting up to four to six months.

Botox can also be used to alleviate excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, which can be caused by stress. Coupled with the warmer weather of the summer wedding season, this can be an issue for all guests, including Mother of the Bride. Anti-wrinkle injections treat this by preventing muscle contractions, keeping your show-stopping outfit free from sweat stains on the day.

Microdermabrasion is a go-to treatment for more mature skin, helping keep it smooth and glowing by using an exfoliating tool to gently buff, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. The treatment can improve age spots and black heads revealing a younger, smoother looking complexion without the need for chemicals and lasers.  Quick and painless, it’s widely adjustable for all skin types.

Additionally, Epionce Skin Peels remove superficial dead layers of skin by separating them from the skin’s surface. This stimulates the production of new healthy cells, revealing brighter, flawless skin, taking away dull lines.

For any treatment, timing is crucial. Make sure to give yourself enough recovery time to look and feel your best at the wedding. All the treatments will lift the appearance, making you ready for your close up and enjoy your time in the spotlight on the day.

All treatments can be tailored to individual skin types and show real results as soon as a couple of days. As with anything wedding related, we strongly recommend consulting with our team which treatment is most suitable for you and your requirements within the timeframe of the wedding date.

All procedures are administered by a fully qualified aesthetic practitioner. Prior to any treatment, the experienced team at The Clinic will discuss the process and talk through any questions or concerns you might have.
