Your Guide to Facial and Body Treatments That Will Help You Get Event-Ready

A special Richmond event is in your future, and you want to look your best. Don’t wait until a few days before the event to start planning any treatments and procedures, like dermal fillers or a facial; it’s best to start thinking about necessary treatments at least a couple of months in advance so you have a chance to make your appointments and arrange your schedule accordingly. Here are a few treatments to consider before your big event, along with guidelines for when to schedule your appointment. 


Microneedling is a procedure that uses a small device to penetrate your skin with small needles. This encourages your skin to produce more collagen. More collagen means that your skin will appear firmer and tighter and any scars, lines, or wrinkles will be less noticeable

When to schedule

Schedule your microneedling appointment in Richmond, VA four to six weeks before your event. It takes time for your skin to produce new collagen, but once it does, you’ll notice that your skin looks smooth and healthy. 

For dramatic results, you may prefer to schedule a series of microneedling sessions beginning up to six months before your event. 


Botox is a popular treatment used to minimize muscle movement, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It’s frequently used to smooth the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), lines around the mouth, and lines in the neck or jawline. 

When to schedule

It takes about two weeks for Botox to fully take effect, and injections need to be repeated every three to four months. Schedule your injections about a month before your event for the best results; this gives you a little time should you need a touch-up injection to improve your results. 

Body Sculpting

Body sculpting procedures can eliminate fat and add volume to desired areas, helping you sculpt your body. Treatments like BodySculp and a non-surgical buttocks lift are ideal for shaping and enhancing your body. 

When to schedule

You should see results from body sculpting within two to six weeks, but it usually takes three months to obtain your full results. Some individuals prefer to have multiple body sculpting sessions to achieve their desired physique. Plan to begin your body sculpting sessions at least three months before your event. 

A Vampire Facelift

A vampire facelift is a non-surgical treatment that helps your facial skin appear younger and firmer. We use your own PRP (platelet-rich plasma) with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to volumize and contour your face while reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. PRP also stimulates the production of collagen to brighten, smooth, and firm your skin.

When to schedule

Results from the PRP injections used for your vampire facelift last for years, but the dermal filler component lasts up to nine months. It takes at least a few weeks for your body to ramp up its collagen production. Consider scheduling your vampire facelift two to three months before your event.
