Perhaps you dream of having a fresher, more youthful profile, fewer lines and wrinkles, or fuller-looking lips to complement your wedding look?
Onkar Dhanoya is clinical lead at Honour Health, a dental and skincare group with practices in Jesmond, Ponteland and Stanley.
“We certainly see many patients who would like to boost their confidence ahead of an important event such as a wedding, and aestheticians can offer a wide range of clinically proven skin treatments to boost skin health and wellbeing. It’s all about planning ahead to look your best for the big day”, he says.
SKIN PEELS >>
Skin peels help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone, reduce pore size, reduce the appearance of blemishes, soften shallow acne scars, and increase skin glow. Neostrata ProSytem is a superficial peeling system that achieves outstanding results with no downtime. Neostrata products contain naturally occurring acids found in fruits and other foods, which help to loosen and remove the excess build up of dead skin cells to exfoliate and smooth the skin.
Wedding countdown: “Depending on the skin concerns of the patient, several sessions may be required, so begin a course of treatment up to six months in advance, with the last treatment being three weeks prior to the wedding.”
HONOUR POUT & SMILE >>
This combination package starts with the Honour Diamond Airflow – a dedicated mouth hygiene appointment using our state-of-the-art Airflow system for a deep clean and fresh mouth, followed by teeth whitening. Four weeks later, you return to us for your lip filler treatment, which then takes up to four weeks to reveal full results. You’ll have a full cupid’s bow framing a gleaming smile in time for the wedding.
Wedding countdown: “To allow adequate time for the three stages of this package, begin this treatment three months in advance.”
eDermastamp is an electronic micro-needling treatment which stimulates natural regenerative responses in the skin, creating a smoother look. This clinically proven procedure is hugely effective for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and sun damaged skin.
Wedding countdown: “Begin a course of treatment three months in advance, with the last treatment being two weeks prior to the wedding.”
HONOUR PLASMA FACIAL >>
A gold standard plasma facial treatment which uses the body’s own natural healing powers. Plasma is separated from a patient’s own blood then placed into the skin. The platelets then release growth factors (proteins that help to heal injured tissue), stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.
This treatment is also hugely effective for other areas of the body including the hands, neck and décolletage.
Wedding countdown: “Begin four weeks in advance (for a single treatment). This gives the skin time to heal and look at its most radiant in time for the wedding bells.”
DERMAL FILLERS >>
Dermal fillers improve tone, plump up the skin, and create a more youthful profile. They restore youthful fullness to cheeks, soften smokers’ lines, plump up lips, restore tear troughs to reduce the appearance of dark circles, and hydrate the skin tissue using hyaluronic acid, replacing lost volume.
Wedding countdown: “Begin this treatment four weeks in advance. The results will last for about six months.”
HONOUR POWER BROW >>
“A stunning brow-lifting treatment uses muscle relaxants (Botulinum Toxin) to open the eye area, creating a beautiful arch, and lifts the upper part of the face, making it appear immediately more youthful. No downtime, no pain – just amazing results.
Wedding countdown: “Begin this treatment three weeks in advance, as it can take up to two weeks before the results fully appear.”
MUSCLE RELAXANTS >>
“Muscle relaxants (Botulinum Toxin) help soften and relax furrowed brows, erase lines and wrinkles and slow the signs of ageing to a gentler pace, creating a fresher, more youthful appearance. It is a little-known fact that muscle relaxants are also highly effective in the treatment of excessive sweating – known as hyperhidrosis. If you’re worried about nerves getting the better of you on the big day and causing unsightly patches on your clothes, then this could be the ideal solution.”
Wedding countdown: “Begin this treatment three weeks in advance, as you will start to see the effects up to two weeks following the treatment, which will then last between three and five months.”
