A major life event like one’s own wedding brings out the desire in a person to look their absolute best. Also, the increased understanding of the role of a dermatologist in improving one’s aesthetic appearance means that a dermatologist is often contacted by the bride-to-be or the groom-to-be, even before the wedding dates are finalized.
The list of aesthetic goals that patients now come up with can range from the obvious to frankly speaking quite extreme. It is also the job of a dermatologist to help the person set realistic goals for their big day.
Here’s a list of the most commonly sought after improvements that brides and grooms often desire.
Flawless Skin is Always in.
A glowing flawless face, free of acne, scars, spots, and blemishes is pretty much a universal need. Patients come in seeking treatments ranging from microdermabrasion, chemical peels, lasers, etc. to more adventurous procedures like vampire facials for achieving flawless skin. It is important to remember that a single procedure cannot help you achieve your dream skin and one should start at least 6 months before their wedding day. This gives your skin time to benefit from a proper skin care routine and also allows the dermatologist to create a proper chart of treatments that may be needed for you.
Hair Gain and Hair Loss
The stresses of a modern life have ensured that the incidence of premature hair loss and balding has substantially increased in both men and women. Hence treatments that can control hair loss and stimulate hair growth like mesotherapy and PRP therapy are highly sought after. In more extreme cases of hair loss, hair transplants are also extremely common.
Meanwhile, body hair is increasingly not desired by women and men both and as a result, Permanent Laser Hair Removal procedures have become very common too.
Fat Loss and Muscle Toning
This is a relatively newer area of interest where non-invasive procedures like cryo-lipolysis and EM sculpting are used for aiding fat reduction and muscle toning respectively. It’s important to note that these procedures by themselves are never effective and require substantial effort from the patients in terms of changing their lifestyle choices like regular exercise routines, eating healthy, etc.
Facial Contouring and Re-modelling
Needs, like wanting a more defined jawline, to fuller cheeks or poutier lips are now very common and dermatologists can help patients with such needs by means of injectable treatments like botox and dermal fillers or minimally invasive treatments like threads.
The more extreme procedures
While the procedures I have mentioned before are non-invasive or minimally invasive in nature and can be done in your dermatologist’s clinic. There is a whole lot of invasive procedures involving hospitalization that a lot of young brides and grooms are also choosing, including but not limited to breast enhancement, rhinoplasty, tummy tucks, etc.
The need of individuals to look more aesthetically pleasing is probably as old as civilization itself. Advances in medical sciences have made such enhancements not only possible but also very safe. Having said this I strongly believe that the needs of every patient are different and a dermatologist’s duty is not only to help them look their best but also help them accept the beautiful self they already are.
After all that really matters more than the way you look on your wedding day is your spouse and the wonderful people around you, who you call friends and family.
