Town And Country: The Best Pre-Wedding Facials
Stress and late night planning do the skin no favors. To counter any skin concern you’ll need to try these facials before you tie the knot. They are from top skincare experts and I think one of them will suit your needs.
I recommend that you start your skincare routine as early as possible as well as these treatments at least a few months in advance.
For example, the results of my Triple Crown Facial are cumulative. Don’t you want to walk down the aisle looking and feeling fully rested and glowing like you just spend a few days on vacation?

Eight Pre-Wedding Facials that Make a Difference
Vargas’s most popular facial is efficacious-it layers light microdermabrasion, mircrocurrent, and oxygen-but gentle (read: no redness), so it’s safe to do as the wedding date looms. Her calming presence will also settle any pre-wedding jitters.
Biologique Recherche Bio-Lift Facial, Rescue Spa, Philadelphia
Not for the faint of heart, a Biologique Recherche facial is for serious skin care seekers. The focus is less on relaxation and more on making skin look as beautiful as possible with electrocurrents, massage, and a series of masks.
The Triad, New York Dermatology Group, New York City
Naomi Watts, Sienna Miller, Angelina Jolie… the list of Triad fans reads like a Met Gala seating chart. Dr. Colbert’s three-step process (hence the name) includes microdermabrasion, a laser treatment, and a chemical peel.
Anti-Aging Treatment, Dangene The Institute of Skinovation, New York City
It’s skin boot camp. Dangene’s multi-step facials (they include both wet and dry microdermabrasion, oxygen, and light therapy, to name a just a few) are an intensive way to get your skin baby smooth.
Tammy Fender Signature Treatment, Tammy Fender Holistic Skin Care, Palm Beach
Most of the glowing complexions in Palm Beach can be attributed to one woman: Tammy Fender. Her signature treatment combines reflexology and aromatherapy with masks and moisturizers, and is just as much of a guided meditation as it is a skin treatment. The results? Dewy skin and the eradication of all wedding-related stress.
Dr. Gross’s Alpha Beta Professional Peel, 900 5th Dermatology, New York City
For the bride that has very little time, Dr. Gross’s multi-acid peel takes about ten minutes (not including waiting time) and is especially good at clearing breakouts. We recommend doing this one at least a week before your wedding to account for any mild peeling afterwards.
Joelle Ciocco Personalized Skin Nutrition Application, Isabelle Bellis Center, New York City
Treatments with Bellis can last up to 2 1/2 hours, but are worth the time commitment. New clients are placed on a yearlong wait list, so we recommend booking an appointment the same day you book the venue.
Clé de Peau Synactif Intensive Purifying & Brightening Facial, Select Clé de Peau Counters, Nationwide
Inspired by its most luxurious line, Synactif, this treatment promotes lymphatic drainage with thermal and cool massage for a contoured effect.
