The final count down is on!! As expected I am full of emotions – excitement, giddiness, and yes – perhaps a bit of stress. Maintaining my fitness and clean eating regiment has been key in the months leading up to the wedding. For me, exercise is a great outlet to release stress and keeps me feeling energized. This nice Dallas spring weather has made it easier for me to keep up my running. Even on afternoons when I get home from work and am tired, a walk with my dog can make a world of difference. I have been making an effort to maintain my diet of fruits, veggies and lots of protein. My fiancé and I have been working on it together which makes it much easier for me. We have found new, delicious recipes and have been making an effort to cook at least once a week together. I take the leftovers to work for lunch the rest of the week too. It’s a win-win!
A treatment I began doing once a week the month before the wedding has been the Hydration Facial. The procedure is meant to exfoliate, cleanse and infuse antioxidants directly into your skin. It feels like a light suction that leaves your pores clean and open. I leave the treatment with bright and shiny skin. There is no downtime; it’s non-invasive and non-irritating.
Another procedure I also went to see Dr. Toledo about was Botox. I had a nagging forehead frown line that was becoming more pronounced over the past several months after we got engaged. Dr. Toledo assured me that it was not a problem and an easy fix! I went in two months before the wedding for the treatment. It was my first time using Botox and I was nervous but Dr. Toledo made me feel at ease. He did the injection himself, unlike many med spas that have an Esthetician handle Botox. I was very happy with the results! The frown line completely disappeared and since it was such a small injection, I still had plenty of movement to the rest of my face/forehead. No one could even tell I had it done!
After my many months of treatments and beauty regiments, I feel youthful and glowing for my big day! Dr. Toledo and his staff have been nothing but helpful and reassuring. For more information or to schedule directly, call 214-363-4444 or visit www.toledoplasticsurgery.com.
