The pressure to look good during one’s wedding leads many a bride to experiment with different beauty treatments. After all, you are preparing for the biggest day of your life and so it is normal to get nerves. Don’t panic though because Big Indian Wedding is here to rescue all brides from their pre-wedding beauty treatment woes. While you may be tempted to try out some miracle beauty treatments, we suggest you to let go of them, especially if your wedding is just a few weeks away! Here’s a list of beauty treatments that you should avoid just before your wedding.

While there are many who swear by it (read many Bollywood celebrities), Botox injections may have an adverse effect. Instead of injecting a new lease of life, you might end up with a crooked eyebrow or a twisted jaw line. The level of danger increases if you are a first-timer. The closer you are to the wedding, the better it is to stay away from this beauty treatment.

Lip plumping
Everyone is doing the pouts these days. While some are naturally endowed, others are taking help of artificial plumping devices. Brides, take note that fillers usually take 2-4 weeks to heal completely. The initial effect of fillers make the lips look swollen. Not too photogenic, may we state! If at all you wish to plump it up, do it at least 6-7 weeks ahead of the wedding.

Chemical peeling
Chemical peels are known to remove dead cells, erase fine lines and lighten uneven dark blotches. But the intensity of the beauty treatment causes severe dryness, leading to flaky skin and itchiness. Even a gentle chemical peel may cause irritation and affect the bridal makeup session. Chemical peeling should be done at least 2 weeks before the wedding.

A very popular pre-wedding beauty treatment, microdermabrasion is known for its many benefits. But if not done by an experienced person and not in a stipulated period of time, it can do uncontrolled damage. Make sure that you get the beauty treatment done from a reputed salon at least 6 months ahead of the wedding to prevent any kind of breakouts.

Cosmetic surgeries
With reduced costs and numerous beauty clinics providing these services, brides do not shy away from going under the knife. Liposuction, rhinoplasty, body sculpting, dimple creation, breast augmentation are some of the most popular pre-wedding beauty treatment surgeries. Not only is the risk of some of the cosmetic surgeries high, getting them done just before the wedding is not advisable at all.
