According to recent article by the Daily Mail, approximately 10% of Brides-to-Be are going under the knife. Why you ask? Well, for most women it is a day that they have looked forward to since they were little, and have imagined themselves to look breathtakingly perfect. Tons of photographs and videos will be taken along with being surrounded by the most important people in their lives. The focus is on them (and the groom of course too!).
If you are getting hitched soon, here are some tips to make sure you get the best results out of your procedures:
- Timeline- the time from your surgery or procedure(s) to your wedding day should be spaced out to allow enough recovery and healing time. There is no need for you to be bruised, swollen or in pain on the big day.
- Buy your wedding dress after surgery. If you are going through with Breast Augmentation, a Breast Lift, Liposuction or a Tummy Tuck, your shape will change, and thus so will your figure in a dress.
- Don’t neglect your face. There are tons of non-surgical options, from Microdermabrasion, to BOTOX® and fillers that will radiate your face with a healthy glow.
Wedding Season is upon us! Time for not only the bride to look her best, but the guests too...
When preparing for a grande event, where you want to impress it is important to keep in mind not to take too drastic of a measure, when the date is near.

It is important to look natural, yet effortlessly flawless. When trying to decipher what procedure(s) to undergo the following may be of assistance.

3 Treatments Okay to do Before your Wedding Day
At Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, we see many brides come in wanting to enhance their natural beauty before their big day. We have come up with 3 key procedures that have no down time, so you can be radiant for your prince charming awaiting for you at the end of the aisle.
Microdermabrasion - By exfoliating the uppermost layer of your skin (the epidermis), dead skin cells and excess grime is removed to reveal a smoother more even complexion.
Botox® - With all the stress of wedding planning, your frown line may be getting deeper by the day. To help prevent future frown and forehead lines, a Botox Cosmetic® injection can smooth out the treated area, to create a softer look. Botox ® should be done more than 2 weeks before your wedding day.
Latisse® - Allergan’s Latisse® is a prescription drug that can grow lashes longer, thicker and darker. This is a product you will have to start about 4 months before your wedding day to ensure you have the full results.
Say I Do to Handplasty
Hand makeovers are on the rise thanks to the “hand selfies” on social media that women post after they get engaged. After doting at your engagement ring, it comes to your attention that everyone will be looking at your hands to see your newly acquired piece of jewelry.
The hands usually do not get as much attention as one’s face, but at this phase in a woman's life everyone will be looking down at their digits. This has prompted many women to undergo non-surgical treatments to improve the appearance of their hands.
As we age, fat, collagen and volume is lost. Age and sun spots start to appear along with loose skin and fine lines.
There are many treatments that can reduce such ailments.
IPL™ PhotoFacial treatments are greats at reducing sun spots, as well as hydroquinone infused products. These do take some time (several months in fact) to see the results, but nonetheless work. For those who are looking for more of a quick fix a 10 minute Dermal Filler treatment can work wonders. By camouflaging the underlying structure of the hands, such as veins, bones and crepey skin, you can bring back luster and volume to replenish the hands appearance.
