On wedding day, you want to be the best version of yourself! Beauty is not just skin deep, but since the photographer will capture moments that will remain part of your life forever, it’s important to look and FEEL your best. Here at Donnie Brown Weddings, we go the extra mile to insure that our brides and grooms look and feel perfect on their big day! This includes scheduling appointments with dietitians for a healthy weight loss program, introducing clients to top fitness instructors/trainers to target trouble zones, referring and researching specialists for specific needs and finally, one of the most important things you can do, find a skin care professional! Makeup can cover a lot, but the goal is to enhance what is already beautiful! No matter the quality of the artist or products, nothing will make a bigger difference than radiant, healthy, young-looking skin!
With that being said, we at Donnie Brown Weddings and Events are proud to announce a first!!!! We are blogging about a anti-aging treatment, that Donnie himself is going to have done! We will be blogging his journey and provide you all the information you need to know about potentially having this done for yourself! Donnie is an individual who only refers something if he truly believes in the product, so we are blessed to learn about this treatment directly from him!
Dr. Christine Stiles is Donnie’s personal physician, she will be giving us medical insight on these procedures. She says that “six months before a wedding is a critical time for brides, mothers of the bride and groom to prepare for wedding photos and to look their best! Two non-surgical treatments can enhance a bride’s glow and make the mothers of the bride and groom look years younger!”
Dr. Stiles will talk about two treatments here, please not that Donnie will only be participating in the latter one (The SmartSkin CO2).
1) “Sculptra is a product that is injected under the skin to stimulate collagen production and give the skin a younger appearance from the inside out! Sculptra is used to add volume to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, chin and jaw line to restore a youthful fullness to the face!”
2) “The Smartskin laser resurfacing removes the dull superficial layers of the skin, lightens dark spots, decreases pore size, reduces wrinkles and gives the skin a younger brighter look, with minimal down time! In days, you will look years younger! For the moms, years of sun damage can be erased from the neck and chest with one laser treatment!”
The Smartskin CO2 treatment restores your skin through laser skin resurfacing! Over the years, signs of aging appear as a result of exposure to the sun ( photo-aging ), and the effect of gravity, and natural aging! The good news is that new advancements in laser technology provide a means of rejuvenation and restore your skin to a more youthful, smoother look!
Here is some basic information we researched about this treatment, I am eager for Donnie’s opinion and compare!!!!
How does it work? Your doctor will use the Smartskin laser to apply a series of tiny pulses of laser energy to your skin. As these microscopic holes heal, a new, younger looking skin is revealed! Also, collagen is stimulated deep within your skin!
“Unique Pulse Structure Puts You in Control
The SmartSkin’s pull structure is specifically designed to optimize thermal coagulative zones, the foundation of and fast healing.
- The first phase delivers high peak power for rapid ablation and to minimize erythema.
- The second phase has an adjustable dwell time from 0.2 to 20 ms. This allows optimal energy to be delivered to the thermal coagulation zone for tissue coagulation, resulting in new collagen production.”
How many treatments will you need? Your doctor and skin care specialist will determine the best course of treatment and the intensity of the treatment, to address your skin’s needs!
What does the procedure feel like? A topical anesthetic is applied before the procedure. During the procedure, a slight tingling and heat are felt as the laser moves across your face!
What is the recovery time? Because the laser has a distinct ability to deliver micro pulses of energy, you will experience a significantly shorter recover time than with ablative laser treatments. Dr. Stiles uses a platelet gel to accelerate your healing, so that you are back to your regular activities in approximately three days!
