IT’S YOUR BIG DAY; Take Care of Every Last Detail.


Before you say “I Do”, here’s your “To Do” Bridal Checklist.

Congratulations! A wedding is a joyous event in one’s lifetime and we understand your desire to look your best. We created this helpful guide to assist in getting you and your skin ready for the big day. Please share it with your mom, future mother-in-law and bridesmaids as there are some great options for them as well. Ask about our custom bridal packages at SKIN the Spa!

Up To 1 Year To 6 Months Before:

If you’ve been putting off a big procedure until now, getting an early start will help you recuperate in time for important photos, dress fittings, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and more. Some surgical procedures may need 6 months to a full year in recovery time. Keep in mind that there may also be some non-surgical options available, so be sure to ask at your consultation to see which fits your goals and schedule best.

Schedule a Consultation with Dr. Runnels or Dr. North - Go over all the options available to you, what your goals are, and what will fit in your event timeline. This a great opportunity to get the know the doctors and staff, see before and after photos, and ask important questions. If you are unsure what to ask, see our list of the Top 10 Questions to Ask At Your Consultation on our Resource Blog.

Popular surgical options for brides or mothers-in-law:

Breast Procedures: Lifts, Augmentation, Reduction • See our Resource Blog for more in-depth info on these procedures.

Tummy Tucks or other Body Contouring, such as Arm or Thigh Lifts

Eyelid Surgery


Facelift (Full or Mini) • Necklift • Brow Lift

Laser Treatments - Hair Removal may require several sessions for permanent removal and need at least 6 months.
