BROOKE NICHOL TALKS ABOUT WHEN TO BOOK BEFORE YOUR BIG DAY!
Nowadays, everybody has an opinion on what you should and shouldn’t do cosmetically, especially regarding your “perfect” wedding look. However, the only person who can call the shots (Botox, that is) is you. But when to call? That certainly is up to the provider. “Come see us a month before the big day, and we’ll get you feeling and looking your best,” says Brooke Nichol, owner of Saving Face (savingfaceaustin.com) who was named a Top 100 Injector by The Best Aesthetic Injectors in America.
We discussed how it seems everybody has a different timeline for cosmetic work. “You can come as early as you’d like, but I wouldn’t do anything later than 30 days before your big day,” says the expert. “That way, the results have set in, and you aren’t swollen or bruised, but results aren’t fading either, so you look exactly how you want.” Of course, this refers to filler, Botox, or facials with downtime. She says most brides these days want a little Botox and maybe some lip filler, but you’d never know it. The natural look is Saving Face’s specialty, and they are well known for it. She recommends a Lifestyle Facial a few months ahead of the big day for brides who may have had too much sun and need an excellent soft glow under their makeup.

Nichol was chosen as one of the top 12 lip experts in the country for the Juvederm Lips Expert Series. So, the evidence says she knows what she is saying, and one month before the big day is the perfect time to pucker up. Nichol and team are honest with their clients and look at the whole picture before making a plan. If they want a sharper jawline, they may suggest filler to contour the jaw into looking sharp, which seems like the opposite of what you’d expect—adding to subtract? However, suppose the client has an excellent jaw, and she sees it may seem unproportional due to a different aspect. In that case, she has those conversations ahead of time to ensure a happy client (especially the bride).
“People often need much less than what they ask for,” notes Nichol. Not what you expected to hear, is it? If your injector is trying to sell you on more and more, you may want to look elsewhere or ensure they have your best interest in mind. “If you haven’t done this before and are a bride- or groom-to-be, I suggest doing this a few months ahead, just to ensure you love it,” Nichol says. “Since we have a Bridal Package, I have brides and their whole bridal party come in for Botox a few weeks before the wedding. It’s a Botox party to get them all feeling their best for a day full of photos and constant smiling.” Nichol enjoys getting everyone to the best version of themselves and, of course, getting brides ready for the best days of their lives. Now you know, brides and grooms.
