It’s no secret that on wedding days, people want to look the best they ever have. Whether you’re the bride, groom, mother, or aunt, you’ve dreamed of this monumental day for years. During the wedding planning process is the perfect time to hit refresh on a look, finally tackling that insecurity or dull skin you can’t seem to shake.
The Richmond Weddings™ team sat down with Dr. Neil Agnihotri to talk about wedding day beauty and how his office, Agnihotri Cosmetic Facial Surgery, can have you looking and feeling your best on the big day and beyond. Dr. Agnihotri is an expert on the face. With an extensive and impressive background in oral and maxillofacial surgery, his specialty is anything from the neck up.
But before you start picturing invasive and intense surgeries that leave someone looking plastic, Dr. Agnihotri is striving for the opposite. He explains, “We want to enhance your natural beauty with minor adjustments.” In fact, if he doesn’t think a procedure is right for a patient, he won’t do it. “We’ll work together to create a treatment plan that is best. If we can’t achieve a safe, natural-looking result, I won’t do it. I have to be able to sleep at night!”
The journey with Dr. Agnihotri and the rest of his team at his pristine Short Pump office goes like this: First, there will be an initial in-person consultation. Then you’ll talk through goals and create a personalized treatment plan that works for your timeline. When browsing procedures Dr. Agnihotri offers, the sky really is the limit when it comes to enhancements. But just like everything else in wedding planning, sticking to a timeline is important. So when should you start? For the more surgical type options, like Eyelid Rejuvenation, Laser Skin Resurfacing, or a Face Lift, the process should begin a year to six months out. The earlier the better! The same goes for fillers like Botox and Dysport which are injections to reduce fine lines. “Six months is protocol so we can develop a treatment plan. If you were training for a 5k, you wouldn’t wear brand new sneakers the day of!”
The recent trend of having glowing, bright skin is not lost on Dr. Agnihotri. That’s why his top recommendation for wedding day beauty is a HydraFacial. Through a non-invasive skin-clearing procedure, you’ll leave with glowing skin in just 30 minutes. “You’ll get that healthy, dewy glow and the skin will be infused with antioxidants, leaving your face hydrated and refreshed.” Since it’s non-invasive, feel free to treat yourself to a HydraFacial the week of the wedding. And everyone knows, the key to beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin!
On staying safe amidst the COVID pandemic their sterile, sanitized office is comfortable and private. And he’ll work with a potentially changing timeline. Dr. Agnihotri explained that he has a patient that had to postpone their wedding a whole year. No worries on his end, he just adjusted treatments accordingly, working with the new timeline.
“Feeling good in your skin should be for more than just one event, it should be for a lifetime.” Why not start the healthy skin/face journey on one of the biggest days of your life?
