Dr. Seema Malik, MD, Eleganza clears the air about the most popular beauty treatments available for brides:

Microderm abrasion or skin polishing: With every passing day, skin cell turnover slows down, which leads to building up of dead skin cells that fail to reflect light leading to a dull-looking skin. So, with this painless procedure the outermost layer of dead skin cells is sloughed off to reveal a fresh layer of skin.

It also boosts the blood flow to the skin, which gives a glow immediately after the procedure. The treatment takes just 40 minutes and effect gets better till eight weeks.

Photo facials: During the 30 minute procedure, infra red light is passed over the topmost layer of the skin to increase blood circulation and reduce pigmentation. It improves jumbo follicles, eliminates skin infections, wrinkles, flaccid skin, and hyper-pigmentation spots etc. It can also be used to treat sun damage and weathered areas on the neck, arms etc. The results can be seen in a period of three days.

AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) facials: AHA acids, are derived from fruits and flowers and are best taken for their anti-aging effects and properties. However, creams formulated with AHAs help the skin look smoother. So, they are recommended for brides who have pigmented skin. This facial is best done to improve the action of the capillaries, skin texture and tightening pores, all the while inducing relaxation and calming the mind. Fruits are chosen according to the skin type. For example: Banana for dry skin and orange for oily skin.

Pollutants are first detached and the skin is then deep cleansed. This is recommended for people who travel a lot or have field job.

Bio-lift facials: Other then cleansing, massage and rejuvenation techniques, these facials include treatments that target dark circles under the eyes. Features and USP of this facial is the bio-mask, which tones and tightens the skin making it look younger.
