The Blog I’ve got a big event coming up! When should I time my treatments?

Are you preparing for a major event you would love to look your best for? Planning a wedding or celebrating a milestone birthday? One of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to achieving their aesthetic goals is waiting too long to begin which can lead to disappointment when desired outcomes can’t be reached. So, when do I need to start? 

Laser Hair removal: 

If you want smooth, hair free skin for your big day you really need to be considering starting at least 12 months out. Generally speaking you will need approx. 8-10 treatments in any area to see a permanent hair reduction with treatments being spaced 4-6 weeks apart. When you do the math’s you realise you’ll need at least 12 months to achieve this goal!  


Dermal Filler 

Fancy a Hollywood pout on your big day? Or maybe you want killer cheeks or a sculpted jaw line! These are all thing we can achieve using dermal filler which lasts 6 months to 2 years depending on the area being treated and the product used. With any cosmetic procedure, we always recommend doing a ‘test run’ to allow time to get used to your new look. With dermal fillers, always have your treatment done at least 6 months prior to your event to make sure you are happy with the result. This will allow enough time to correct anything you’re not satisfied with. You may need a top up appointment which should be done one month prior to allow any swelling and bruising to subside. Also keep in mind you cannot travel internationally for at least two weeks after fillers so if you’re jetting off on your honeymoon or taking a once in a lifetime trip to celebrate make sure your appointment is booked well in advance! 


Anti-Wrinkle injections 

Anti-wrinkle injections take anywhere from 4 days to 2 weeks to take affect or ‘kick in’ depending on the product used and last around 4-6 months. If you’ve never had them before it’s advisable to do a trial run beforehand and get a top up 4 weeks before the date in question. This will just allow you to get used to the product any allow time to make any necessary changes.  


Skin Needling 

If you are hoping to rid your skin of scarring and pitting or even large pores and uneven texture and tone then skin needling is for you. You will usually need 4 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart for the best results and may want to have top up sessions after six months to maintain your new-found flawless complexion!  Recovery time is about a week so always leave enough time to let the treatment do its job! 



Gone are the days when you had to undergo expensive, painful and risky surgery to remove unwanted fat pockets. Coolsculpting is the most effective non-surgical, no downtime, fat reducing treatment on the market today. Everyone is different and will need a personalised treatment plan however you usually need 1-2 treatments for best results. Because your body naturally breaks down the dead fat cells after they have been frozen it takes 8-12 weeks to see the final result and you may need a follow up treatment so you’ll need to get going at least six months out.
