How Long Before My Event Should I Get My Cosmetic Treatments?

When you find out you have a special event coming up (like a wedding, graduation, quinceañera, or award ceremony), as soon as the initial excitement fades, your next thought is probably, “How can I look my best?” You’ve come to the right place, because at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, refining your look is our specialty. But when you have a specific camera-ready deadline, timing your treatments is key, so we’ve put together a quick timeline of when you should get started for many of our most popular procedures.
