Considering a non-surgical pre-wedding treatment? Here’s Dr Judy Todd’s timeline

nonsurgical procedures for bride

In amongst wedding mania, organising a venue, the guest list and accommodation sometimes brides-to-be neglect the most important thing; themselves.

“A youthful, dewy complexion is the epitome of skin care goals for any bride who wishes to feel at their absolute best on the big day,” says Dr Judy Todd, owner of Synergy, a medical aesthetic clinic  in Giffnock.

Dr Judy Todd has leading-edge technology that helps not only brides but also their mothers to feel glowing and radiant on and in the lead up to the wedding day.

Dr Judy Todd continues: “If time is on your side, you can achieve the most natural results with a combination of treatments.

With a little time built in, the rejuvenation process will happen in a more evolutionary way as the skin has more time to renew and regenerate.

For mothers of the bride or groom, injectables such as Botox and fillers are a fantastic tool but ultimately will not tackle the ‘turkey neck’ and loose jowls, which is a key giveaway sign of ageing.

All is not lost if people only have two or three months post wedding, however a year would be the desired amount of treatment time.”
