According to some reports, more and more brides-to-be are taking their wedding preparations to new lengths in a bid to look their best on the big day. Said by some to have been inspired by the flawless Kate at her Royal wedding last year, this trend is seeing women go much further than the traditional facial.

And why not? For many people, their wedding day is one of the most important of their lives and they want to look fantastic!

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular treatments available. It is essentially a deep exfoliation of the skin: a hand held device is used to apply a pressurised stream of ultra-fine medical grade crystals to the skin. This removes the dull and damaged superficial layers of skin to reveal the new skin underneath.

At The Laser Treatment Clinic, a laser is then applied to the skin in order to stimulate the healing process and boost collagen production. The result is smoother, firmer and more radiant skin.

Microdermabrasion can help to reduce the appearance of scarring and acne scars, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks and sun damage, which explains its popularity as a cosmetic treatment. In the next article, we will take a look at some of the other possible treatments that may help brides to feel their best.
