Your Ultimate Wedding Beauty Prep Guide From Kansas City Beauty Experts

There’s nothing more exciting than finally marrying the love of your life. While wedding planning—from guests to flowers and everything else (whew!)—can be a huge stressor, we’ve got you covered with your wedding beauty prep needs! 

Every bride wants to look their absolute best on their wedding day, and our team at AesthetiCare would love to help you get there. You don’t want to wait until the last minute to get the ball rolling, so here’s a guide to help get you to your big day! 

Let’s get physical 

Whether you’re trying to lose weight, tone up, or simply become healthier before your wedding, you’re going to want to start the journey at least six months before if possible.  When you start earlier, you don’t have to rush to achieve your health goals, which could lead to unhealthy habits. 

There are also a variety of body contouring aesthetic treatments you can weave into your fitness and health plan. These treatments are great to reduce fat and help shape your body, all within a few treatment sessions. 

Some of our favorites include:

Coolsculpting: Coolsculpting uses ice-cold temperatures to literally freeze fat cells away, making it great for stubborn fat on your arms, neck, stomach, back, thighs, and more!

Emsculpt: Emsculpt takes your ab and glut workouts to the next level. Using High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology, Emscupt induces supramaximal contractions to tone your abdomen and buttocks. 

Cellfina: Cellfina is your ultimate treatment to fight against cellulite. It breaks apart connective tissue to give you smooth, dimple-free skin.  Best of all, it’s permanent.

Get started with skin and body care

Sometimes life gets the best of us, and we start neglecting our skin. Eight to six months before your wedding is the perfect time to revamp your skincare routine. This gives you time to find out what works for you and which products may irritate your skin. The last thing you’d want to do is try something new right before your wedding and end up with red, peeling, or tight skin.  We highly recommend using professional-grade skincare products to drench your skin with the highest quality ingredients possible.

You should implement a morning and night skincare routine that includes cleansing, toning, serums, moisturizers, and of course you can’t forget the SPF. Here are a few ingredients you should look for:

  • Hyaluronic acid: moisturizes the skin and keeps your cells plump
  • Glycolic acid: increases cellular turnover to reduce dark spots, fine lines, and unwanted texture
  • Retinol: reduces sun damage and fights against wrinkles and aging (best for people in their upper 20s or 30s)
  • Vitamin C: brightens the skin and can help boost collagen and elastin 
  • Salicylic acid: fights against acne breakouts and exfoliates the skin

If you’re ever unsure which ingredients will work best for your skin, you can always speak to one of our team members, and we’ll be happy to help. 

Getting on top of monthly facial treatments can also boost your skin. Some of our favorite treatments include:

While you’re creating a routine for your face, it’s important to not ignore your body. When showering, use a mild soap that won’t dry out the skin. You also want to exfoliate once a week to avoid the buildup of dead skin. If you truly want silky, smooth skin, we highly recommend starting laser hair removal treatment. That way you won’t have to worry about constant shaving and/or waxing.

Take years off your age (or maintain your youthful appearance)

Whether you’re in the 20s, 30s, 40s or beyond, it’s never too early or late to reverse the aging clock. Along with a great skincare routine, there are different anti-aging treatment options to have your significant other saying “wow” the moment you step down the aisle. 

Why does aging happen?

The obvious answer is, well… time. You can’t stop aging completely, and as years go by, your skin will start making changes. That includes losing facial fat, getting wrinkles, and having sagging skin. 

There’s another reason for aging: the sun. You’ve probably already heard that the sun emits harmful rays that damage the skin. When you’re young, your skin doesn’t show that damage, but once you enter your 30s, all that sun damage starts to emerge. That’s why it’s incredibly important to wear SPF everyday, especially if you’re still in your 20s. 

If you’re starting to notice fine lines, skin laxity, and other signs of aging (or you want to prevent premature aging) there are definitely ways to help. 


You don’t want to start your injections too early or they may wear off before your wedding. A great time to start would be about 1 to 2 months before the big day. 


Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that inhibit muscle contractions that could lead to wrinkles and fine lines. A lot of people believe that Botox can cause unnatural freezing (and who wants that for their wedding?), but that’s not the case. When you choose an experienced Botox provider, you’ll gain natural results that could help you appear years younger. You’ll notice results after about 3 to 4 days, and the treatment lasts up to 3 to 4 months. 

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers help restore facial fullness to treat skin laxity and wrinkles. They are made with pure hyaluronic acid to plump and restore your face. Plus, you can even inject fillers into your lips to get that perfect “you may now kiss the bride” pucker. 

Medi Threads

Medi Threads are one of the best non-surgical alternatives to a facelift. The treads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a medical-grade material even doctors use during surgery. During a treatment, your provider will inject the Medi Threads while lifting and tightening the skin. They also promote collagen production. 


Kybella fights against unwanted chin fat to get rid of that chin fat once and for all (did you know a “double chin” could make you appear older?). With working out and dieting, you can’t target where you lose fat—that’s all genetics. Unfortunately, some people are more predisposed to have more chin fat than others. Great news! Using deoxycholic acid (a natural chemical found in your body), Kybella targets and destroys fat cells. That means you can have that structured jawline you’ve always wanted, just in time for your wedding! 

Laser and other skin resurfacing treatments

Laser and light energy are known treatments to rejuvenate the skin to fight visible signs of aging. Plus, laser technology has come a long way, and now it’s safe for a variety of skin tones and types. 

BBL therapy

Broadband Light (BBL) therapy uses light energy to stimulate collagen production and smooth the skin. Most people get the best results after 3 to 5 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart, so we recommend starting a few months before your wedding date. 


Halo is an innovative treatment that uses both ablative and nonablative wavelengths to repair the visible signs of aging, including fine lines and sun damage. You may experience some post-treatment swelling, but that typically goes away over time. After 4 to 6 days of minimal downtown, your skin will be smoother and brighter than before.


INTRAcel combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, which leads to a boost of collagen. Not only is it great for anti-aging, it also helps reduce the appearance of acne scars! We recommend a series of treatments before your wedding day to get the most out of your experience.
