DO YOUR NEED WEDDING PREJUVENATION?
If you are worried you may not be putting your best face forward on your wedding day (translation: you’re looking at fine lines, uneven skin tone, undereye darkness and hollows) we’re talking to you. According to Dr. Lisa Kellet of Toronto’s DLK on Avenue, prejuvenation refers to preventative treatment targeting all of the above. It encompasses everything from skin treatments (IPL) to injectables (neuromodulators like Botox and hyaluronic acid-based fillers) and focuses on preserving your natural appearance or slowing down the aging process. “It’s easier to prevent a wrinkle forming than treating an existing one,” says Kellet. “We are seeing younger patients coming in and many brides-to-be. They want their pictures and wedding selfies to be perfect!” Read more about prejuvenation and if it’s the right choice for you at weddingbells.ca—Alison McGill
