    Hi! Yes me! Smiley smile I got Invisalign about a year and a half ago, now I’m getting 2 implants in and whitening. So I should have perfectly white teeth by the wedding. And I started the implant process in feb, and will be done in June. Wedding is in July.

    Absolutely. I get a little Botox and lip filler. I go about 3.5 weeks before the wedding so that way my lips heal and my Botox really kicks in.

    Ohhh Iʻll ask about whitening at my consultation!

    And noooo not silly! Iʻm looking at possibly being a full brace face. Grew up not really having $$ for braces so here I am now haha

    Iʻve definitely been debating a little filler and botox for my lines. Iʻm a little nervous about having to repeat filling/firming but it might be nice for such a special day to feel my absolute best.

    Absolutely! I got a little Botox to help with some fine lines I don’t like and to help my smile. When I smile my top lip goes up so you see a lot of my gums and I hate it so the Botox helps me keep my top lip down more. I got it done about 3 months before the wedding and will get a touch up a few weeks before the wedding date.

    Yeah, I grew up really poor and made sure my girls got braces. So now that they are done maybe I will? Maybe.

    I like my lips for the most part but my acne scars and smile lines are very real

    I am seriously considering Botox and Juvederm, but I have never had it before so it’s hard to pull the trigger 😬 I had a VBeam laser treatment for capillaries in my face & two months later I still have some discoloration from the treatment. I’ll be seeing a dermatologist this week to discuss my goals & hopefully figure out a good timeline & I’m excited! I also started Curology and so far it’s been great!


    I’d be very interested to hear others’ experiences with Juvederm!

    I say go for it! You put others before you, now it’s time to do something nice for yourself! They have invisible braces now too, which is such a great option for adults! I didn’t even know such a thing existed until a former coworker got them!

    I'm considering it.

    I have malar mounds/festoons (if you Google this, I assure you mine aren't as bad as some of the ones you'll see - but if the right light catches them, I feel like they make me look sick.) They're genetic, as my dad and all of my siblings also had/have them. There are a few cosmetic surgeons in my state who use laser and RF to minimize them.

    I wouldn't say I'm doing this "for" the vow renewal. It's something I want to do anyway. But having that event that I want to look my best for is making me look into the consultation, budgeting, and figuring out how far ahead I need to do it in order for it to be successful in time (I'm pretty sure it's like other laser treatments where you usually need more than one.)

    I definitely understand bags under the eyes but I can imagine severity would be frustrating Smiley sad

    Exactly! The things Iʻm considering are all things Iʻve been wanting to do, but having a wedding date kinda puts a deadline that hopefully everything can be done by since the photos will live on forever. Iʻm scheduling consultations and not worrying about budgeting yet haha

    Festoons are a little different than eyebags - they are on the cheeks. They look like creases across the plump part of the cheek. Like so: https://tinyurl.com/3hacj8pn and https://tinyurl.com/3ntvt5fs The first one is much deeper than mine, mine look more like the second photo (and it's more dramatic on one side.) Lighting can make a difference, because some lighting you can't see them, but any overhead lighting they are very noticeable, and I otherwise have very nice skin and look younger than my age, so they bug me a lot.

    I'm going Friday for my consult. I'm excited to get options & answers. I don't want a mouth of metal in my wedding photos so I'm hoping it can be done before then, or I'll wait till after

    Yes-- weigh out the pros and the cons-- at best it'll take 3 months to heal so 4 months from start to finish.
