Wedding Countdown: Top 10 Tips for Bridal Beauty
You want to be self-assured on your wedding day, confident and shining and most importantly, able to enjoy yourself without worrying about appearance.

Factors such as the change of season, finding a suitable reception venue or dealing with dress fittings are all part of the experience, demanding your immediate attention.

You need to schedule your bridal beauty commitments well ahead and get any potential skin situations under control well in advance, so that you feel confident leading up to and on the day. You By Sia is Sydney’s complete premiere cosmetic clinic, that provides self-assurance, one treatment at a time. Here are You By Sia’s Top Ten Tips for Bridal Beauty, scheduled from furthest away, down to your Wedding Day, to ensure you radiate confident Bridal Beauty.
You by Sia’s Top Ten Tips for Bridal Beauty
Tip 10. Five months before your wedding – Book a visit to your Skin Specialist
Major skin situations like acne or uneven pigmentation can undermine your confidence at the best of times, but when there is a wedding involved, make sure you manage well ahead of time. This is the time to seek treatment for facial conditions through topicals and medications, as well as advice on removal of brown spots, fine lines, pore reduction and redness through laser. You by Sia Facial Rejuvenation Clinic Sydney offers competitive and committed skin specialists with experience to work with your skin, rather than against it, to achieve maintainable, long-term results.
Pigmentation Removal and Laser technology
Some treatments require time and multiple visits with an experienced skin specialist to address the requirements of your face, so you need to start well ahead of the Big Day. At You by Sia Facial Rejuvenation Clinic Sydney, pigmentation removal is addressed by using a combination of cosmeceutical-grade skincare and Laser technology, which removes the pigmented skin, leaving a fresh, clear and initially delicate skin layer. During and post-treatment, skin is far more susceptible to sun damage, so it is better to undergo this type of treatment through winter or when more time is spent indoors. Laser treatment suitability is determined based on skin colour, so if your skin tone is medium-olive or darker skin tone, it may not be responsive to this type of treatment. If this applies to you, read below for an alternative method.
Tip 9. Four ½ months before your wedding – Skin Needling
From pigmentation to anti-ageing, acne and scarring, skin needling is designed to treat a myriad of targeted skin concerns on all skin types and tones. The results can be as effective as laser or chemical resurfacing treatments – without the risk of hyper pigmentation or long amounts downtime. Although skin needling doesn’t cause discomfort or damage to the surface of the skin, your face may appear slightly red in the two or three days after treatment, followed by slight flaking. During this time, your You by Sia skin specialist recommends that you stay out of the sun to avoid UV damage (and you may want to stay incognito), making spring the perfect time to book in and enhance your skin for perfect Bridal Beauty.
Tip 8. Four months before your wedding – Complexion Check-up with your You by Sia skin specialist
Even if your skin does not have any serious situations to manage, this is still a good time to book in with your You by Sia skin specialist for a complexion check-up. There is still enough time to change your diet or skin management plan to get the best result on your wedding day. Remember also, you are relying on wedding planners and other support people for your big day – why leave anything to chance?
Tip 7. Three ½ months before your wedding – Dermal Sonic facials
Leading up to the wedding you’re probably finalising all of the important things, so now is the time to look at touch-ups for your skin. Try a series of You by Sia Dermal Sonic Facials, one per week leading up to your wedding day. These signature facial rejuvenations refresh and renew a dull looking complexion, effectively combating the appearance of various skin complaints, including ageing, pigmentation, sagging skin, wrinkles and dryness. There is no discomfort or downtime with each skin smoothing treatment, they easily outperforming harsh and damaging microdermabrasion, and take between 30-75 minutes per treatment without downtime or embarrassing redness, stepping out of the skin clinic with hydrated, refreshed looking skin.
Tip 6. Three months before your wedding – gentle exfoliations
To boost your bridal beauty, try a gentle exfoliation like the You by Sia Inside Out Peel™, revolutionary facial peels which work to effectively rejuvenate, balance and support the skin from the inside out.

Tip 4. Six weeks before your wedding – smile!

Your teeth can be brightened by up to nine shades, in as little as two sessions without sensitivity. Sessions are reasonable priced and remove stains to return teeth to their natural shade, without bleaching.
Tip 3. Three weeks before your wedding – Laser Hair Removal on your Face
To achieve a silky smooth, confident face for your wedding, You by Sia can help target the upper lip, chin, cheeks, eyebrows and sides of the face with pain-free laser hair removal treatment. Small areas on the face can be targeted in a matter of minutes. The laser beam will not affect surrounding areas of skin, allowing for precise and contoured treatments on sensitive areas of the face. The amount of sessions required depends on the area targeted and the best idea is to organise a pre-treatment consultation with your nearest You by Sia clinic.
Tip 2. Three days before your wedding – Minimising environmental stress
Stress and alcohol increase the puffiness in your face, which is exactly what you do not want in the last few days before your wedding. One last facial is the perfect way to calm your face and highlight cheekbones and jawbones. You by Sia’s Delicate Clenz provides a deep cleanse for normal to sensitive skin types, ensuring skin looks radiant and refreshed. Infused with a potent blend of vitamins and antioxidants, this cleanser works to refresh the appearance of the skin while gently removing all traces of makeup and surface build-up.
