Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. So why not go the extra mile with life-changing treatments to assure you’ll look your absolute best? With the hectic schedule of wedding preparations it’s easy to neglect your skincare regimen, which is where we come in. In today’s trending treatments the ultimate goal is all about achieving flawless and glowing skin. Here at Lifestyle MedSpa we pride ourselves on guiding clients to achieve these goals through laser skin care and super charged facials, such as the HydraFacial MD®.
When it comes to brides looking for healthy clear skin throughout their bridal journey, our recommended protocol comes down to two things: instant results and no down time. Enter your new best friends…Clear + Brilliant and HydraFacial MD®. Not only are these our two most popular skincare treatments, but they are loved by celebrities like: Drew Barrymore, Christie Brinkley, Brittany Snow, Kate Winslet, and many more. HydraFacial MD® is your pre-party treatment, where technology meets lifestyle. With no downtime, a deep cleansing exfoliation, painless peel and extractions, this treatment is part one of our signature protocol. Part two, is our “red carpet facial.” This mini Fraxel treatment shrinks pores, evens tone, and hits all those troublesome dark spots. These treatments together are unstoppable and will leave any bride feeling nothing but confident and beautiful.
