From dull complexions to dreaded bloating, The Clinic has the solution to many of your last minute beauty dilemmas. So, whether you’re the bride-to-be like Kim Kardashian, or preparing to play a prominent role as mother of the bride or bridesmaid, The Clinic has exactly what you need.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Botox is one of the most popular and well-known non-surgical treatments for addressing lines and wrinkles. The treatment is safe and virtually painless and works by preventing the muscle contractions that cause furrows and fine lines when the face is frowning or laughing and results are visible within three to seven days, and last between four and six months.
Another option to improve the appearance of your skin is Dermal Fillers. This is a non-invasive treatment which creates the appearance of smoother, more youthful-looking skin and can target specific areas of concern. By injecting tiny amounts of hyaluronic acid into the skin or lips, it restores volume and elasticity where you need it most, temporarily halting or even reversing the ageing process. By plumping up the skin’s surface, dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, leaving perfectly smooth and supple skin; ideal for the application of wedding makeup. Results are visible within three to seven days, and last between four and six months.
Originally used to treat muscle injury, Endermologie LPG is a high tech, non-invasive procedure that massages the skin resulting in the dramatic improvement in the appearance of bloating, cellulite and body contouring.
Lasting an hour, the treatment may be mildly uncomfortable at times but mostly feels similar to that of a gentle massage. An experienced therapist will use a hand piece that rollers the skin to target the connective tissue that lies beneath the surface and adapts manoeuvres for specific body types.
The treatment has been known to reduce the level of water retention, bloating, elimination of fat cells, detoxification, and stimulation of collagen for stronger, firmer skin and the reduction of cellulite, making it easier to slip into your wedding outfit with added ease.
The stress of planning a wedding may have left your skin looking uneven and dull with fine lines and blemishes ruining a normally perfect complexion. Epionce skin peels are used to improve the appearance of the skin through the application of a chemical solution, causing the superficial dead layers of skin to separate, peel off and to stimulate the production of new healthy cells. The new skin looks fresher, brighter, with an overall more youthful glow.
This treatment is best planned a month or two prior to the wedding day to allow healthy skin cells to develop and to give the skin breathing time to fully recover. Products are also available for home use to provide optimum results.
Alternatively, Microdermabrasion is proven to work on a range of different skin types and can be used to dramatically improve the appearance of dull or ageing skin, as well as shallow acne scars, brown spots, fine lines, sun-damaged, acne-prone or blotchy skin. The end result will be radiant, beautiful, youthful skin for the big day.
As well as smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating. This quick and simple procedure means you can enjoy a busy day under the camera flashlight whilst remaining cool, fresh and feeling comfortable.
Whilst many of these treatments offer fast results, The Clinic recommends you consult a therapist as early as possible, as a series of treatments over time will deliver the best results.
Whichever treatment you choose, The Clinic’s experienced practitioner will offer a consultation in a relaxed environment, free of charge, during which they can advise you on which treatments are most suitable for you and which ones will deliver the best results, leaving you radiant and picture perfect on the big day.
