For brides-to-be who wish to look fabulous on their wedding day, that dream can be turned into a reality with the wide range of safe aesthetic treatments and centres available in the country
Here is a list of safe aesthetic treatments and centres you could refer to for a fabulous look on your big day
The increasing popularity of cosmetic surgery and aesthetic treatments in today’s modern world can be linked to research tying the procedures to higher self-esteem and lifted moods. This is because, when you are happy with the way you look, your confidence level will naturally skyrocket and you will instantly feel like you are able to accomplish anything. This is the way you should feel on your wedding day. As we survey the constant advancement of technology in shaping the beauty industry, the age-old saying ‘you should be happy with what you have’ certainly does not apply here. People will always want to change their hair or eye colour, become slimmer, have a brighter complexion or alter certain facial features, and that is perfectly natural as it is all made possible with the latest technology available.
Aesthetic treatments and non-invasive surgical procedures are the new trend in the beauty industry as they require minimal recovery time, if any. However, cosmetic surgeries such as face contouring, rhinoplasty and more, still remain popular as they allow individuals to take control of their lives and be transformed into their desired appearance in order to feel amazing.
As soon as the bride enters the wedding hall, all eyes will be on her. She needs to be confident and composed, knowing that she looks her best on one of the most important days of her life. If you are a bride-to-be and you’re wondering what you can do to achieve a glowing complexion just in time for your big day, then you should definitely pay a visit to The DRx Clinic in Sri Hartamas. When you drop by the centre, be sure to check out one of its popular treatments—the awardwinning Essential Facial Plus (EF+). “Our patients experience a brighter and smoother complexion just a few days after the treatment. In fact, our loyal customers swear by it! This is achieved by using our proprietary technique and serums coupled with the expertise of our regularly trained therapist. All this is done to maintain the efficacy of the treatment. It is a facial unlike any other,” Dr Jason Yip, the resident physician at the centre tells us with enthusiasm.
For a bride who longs to exude radiance on her big day, Dr Yip also recommends using their award-winning Derma-Rx skincare range to gradually coax the skin into becoming brighter and smoother. “It usually takes about two weeks to see some noticeable improvements,” he explains. If you are looking for faster results, try out the Carbon Peel laser that helps the skin to become brighter and radiant in just two to three days. This laser is popular among individuals who want to look good for the next few weeks before a party or wedding.
Besides taking care of your complexion, a beautiful smile is essential when posing for all those wedding photos. “I think that the bride’s smile on her wedding day would rank up as one of the most endearing memories of the day. A designed smile can help achieve this. It includes a long-term smile with non-
invasive veneers,” says Dr Suresh Nair from Pristine Dental. “If time is short, an immediate ‘Wedding Smile’ can be made with a custom crafted, very fine and detailed prosthesis that slips over your teeth and when viewed looks natural and beautiful. It is painless, non-invasive and doesn’t involve touching your teeth at all,” he continues, saying that many brides-to-be have been provided with these ‘instant’ smiles.
For individuals who are not afraid to go the extra mile, Wonjin Beauty Medical Group is the perfect solution. Although the treatments and procedures are done in Korea, you may visit the consultation office in Plaza Damas, Kuala Lumpur to find out more about the treatment. “If the wedding is in a month or two and the bride feels the need for a big change (such as an eye or nose surgery), the Thread Lifting and Fat Graft procedures are appropriate,” suggests Dr Park Wonjin.
Thread Lifting uses harmless thread to smoothen facial lines and build skin elasticity while the Fat Graft procedure requires injection of fat into flat face areas such as the forehead, smile lines and cheekbones to “not only present a dimensional effect but to also create volume that makes the face look smaller,” he explains. However, if there is no time for surgery, injection procedures such as botox and fillers are appropriate.
Have you tried a multitude of diet plans and exercise routines in order to get in shape for your wedding day, yet nothing has really worked for you? If that is the case, you should try the Liposonix body sculpturing treatment at Nara Medispa. “This is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment, which uses high intensity focused ultrasound to permanently destroy adipose tissue or fat. This energy is focused on the fat areas under the skin that you want to target. You will see results in three weeks but optimum results are noted in 8-12 weeks,” explains Alvin Joseph, director of the centre. According to Alvin, you can actually go one dress size down after just one treatment. “With the advancement of technology, we can offer better treatments, which clients will be happy with,” he explains.
Equipped with the latest technologies and facilities, Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre is another must-visit establishment in Dijaya Plaza, Kuala Lumpur. The centre offers a wide range of services including aesthetic medicine, cosmetic surgery, hair transplants, healthy ageing, skincare and more. If you want to look fabulous in a bikini for your beach honeymoon by reducing your cellulite, you should try out the Exilis treatment. Using controlled heating and radio frequency, Exilis reduces unwanted fat deposits on the skin while tightening the surface. This effectively treats body parts that are flabby or saggy by reducing cellulite on the thigh and more. It is a quick and relaxing treatment that requires no downtime, allowing you to carry on with your wedding preparations with ease.
Before you hit the beach, don’t forget to try out Beverly Wilshire’s range of effective skincare products including the Sunblock Spray SPF29. This lightweight non-greasy spray contains micronised titanium dioxide to provide maximum protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays that can damage the skin. As this natural non-irritating formula comes in a spray form, it is ideal for the parts of the body which are difficult to reach.
If you would rather slim down in the privacy of your own home, Dr Joe Shigemoto’s face and body slimming machine from Japan is another good solution. This advanced machine which can be used on different parts of the body, utilises high frequency ultrasonic waves to melt fat and flush it away, making it ideal for those with stubborn fat and cellulite.
