How many months before my wedding should I get a facial?
If you don't get facials regularly but want to incorporate them into your wedding preparation, it's best to start several months before the wedding.
Schedule your last facial session around one to two weeks before the wedding day. Your skin will shine through your makeup, as well as elevate your makeup. We love making brides shine on their special day!
If I just had botox, how long should I wait before I get a facial?
After receiving Botox/Filler injections, it is generally recommended to wait for a specific period before getting a facial treatment. The waiting time can vary depending on the advice of the individual who administered the injections. However, a common guideline is to wait at least two weeks after injections before undergoing any facial treatments.
I’m on medication, can I still get a facial?
Whether or not you can get a facial while taking medication depends on the specific medication you are on and its potential interactions with facial treatments. It's important to consult with your healthcare provider to understand how your medication may affect or be affected by facial treatments.
