Cosmetic Surgery for Your Wedding DayThese days, it’s very common for brides and grooms alike to take advantage of advances in cosmetic services to achieve a picture-perfect look for their wedding day.

With skincare professionals and centers across the country, American Laser offers a wide spectrum of services benefiting both the bride and groom, including microdermabrasion, FotoFacials, laser hair removal, body shaping and cellulite treatments.

Microderm Abrasion

One of the most popular pre-marriage services is microdermabrasion, a simple skin treatment known for creating a radiant glow to the face through a non-invasive procedure. Microdermabrasion works by releasing microscopic crystals across the top layer of skin that remove dead skin cells and reveal the healthier skin underneath. This outpatient procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes and requires no recovery period. Best results may be achieved by having one microdermabrasion treatment a month before the wedding and a second treatment a week before the big day. According to American Laser, benefits include more collagen and elastin to the face and an increase in the effectiveness of personal skincare products such as moisturizers, creams and serums.


Running out of time before your nuptials and need a quick fix? Then try a FotoFacial, a non-invasive light therapy that helps create a smoother, tighter and firmer look to your skin. FotoFacials are an outpatient procedure and take approximately 30-40 minutes and involve no recovery time. The procedure typically benefits patients with tiny lines near the eyes and mouth, Rosacea or hyperpigmentation. The best time for a FotoFacial is 3-5 days before your wedding day. Don’t panic if you notice some pinkness a few hours after the treatment. Best results are achieved with multiple sessions; consult with your skin professional for the best options for your skin.

Laser Hair Removal

As you might imagine, laser hair removal is popular with brides. It’s also great for the groom, too! This permanent hair reduction procedure requires several sessions and incorporates a combination of heat and energy to remove hair follicles without harming the skin. For best results, American Laser recommends at least six sessions occurring four to ten weeks apart. Allow 5-6 months before your big day to complete the procedure. Laser hair removal is an outpatient procedure and requires no recovery time. Clients who undergo laser hair removal report a pinch-like feeling that quickly subsides.

Body Contouring and Cellulite Treatments

Body contouring and cellulite treatments are a great option for brides who need to lose a little something-something to wiggle into her wedding gown. Cellulite appears as a cottage cheese-like texture beneath the skin that can be unsightly and add odd bulges to unexpected places on the body, a woe for any bride-to-be. American Laser has the solution, with VelaShape — an FDA cleared, combination cellulite and body shaping treatment. This non-invasive, 30-minute outpatient treatment uses radiofrequency waves, light and special rolling devices to reshape the contours of the skin and diminish the look of cellulite. Begin treatment two months before the wedding, and expect to do about 3-4 sessions during this period.
