With all of the time and energy that goes into planning a wedding, you deserve to look and feel your best on your special day. While the stress of planning a wedding is inevitable, it’s important that you take time to treat yourself because when you look good, you feel good.

Here’s a look at six cosmetic procedures that are popular among today’s brides and grooms.


Do you have fine lines and wrinkles that make you feel older than you are? Botox is a nonsurgical treatment that helps diminish lines between the brows, forehead lines, crow’s feet and smile lines. Botox relaxes the facial muscles resulting in smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. Just 10-15 minutes of botox treatment will leave you with a big, perfect smile for up to 5 months.


As we age, so does our skin. But, with a variety of fillers and our non-surgical injectable face-life you can take control of your appearance. We have many options, so you’re sure to find one that is suitable for you. Fillers can be used to:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars


Have you worked hard to lose weight, only to be left with unflattering excess skin? We know how frustrating that can be, especially when you’re trying to fit into that perfect dress. Sculpsure is the latest technology in body contouring. DC Derm Docs is the first in the Washington, D.C. area to offer this revolutionary treatment. Thermal laser energy targets problem areas and can remove up to 25% of fat in treated areas.  It only takes 25 minutes per area, and treats multiple areas at once.


Struggling to lose those last few inches on your waist or thighs? Sometimes diet and exercise take time that brides-to-be don’t have. Now you can slim down quickly and painlessly with Vanquish, a non-surgical treatment that incorporates focused-field radio frequency to destroy fat without touching your body. Lose up to three inches with Vanquish with just four weekly 30 minute treatments.


Exilis is another option used to sculpt the body and reduce circumference in patients, as well as tighten the skin on the face and body. With a pain-free heating sensation, the thermal energy produced speeds up metabolic activity and shrinks the fat cells, which are eventually flushed from the body. At the same time, Exilis energy causes the collagen support tissues to tighten the skin.

Chemical Peels

If you’re suffering from acne, scarring or just want younger looking skin, our skin rejuvenation procedures even skin tone, minimize age lines or spots, and reduce the appearance of freckles, patchy or irregular skin.This is one of the least invasive ways to enhance the appearance of your skin and will certainly boost your confidence for your big day!
