Good news: You found your wedding dress, and you love it…Congratulations!

So next on your list is the beauty countdown, Dr Chloë reveals the Eighth & Eden WEDDING METHOD®!

“At your first visit your treatment journey will be created based on our method® to ensure you achieve your goals in time for your wedding day” explains Dr Chloë. Whether your wedding is two weeks or two years away I always advise coming in as soon as possible as some treatments can take time to work or benefit from cumulative treatments. Using our tried and trusted method™ we take the pressure off the bride leaving her in complete control of her own timeline, budget and understanding of the treatment journey in the lead up to the big day. It’s not just for brides either, we’ve seen an increase in the number of grooms, mother of the bride and bridesmaids plus not forgetting same sex weddings.

Our Method®:


Recommended Timeline

 1 year 

Structure, Face: Dermal fillers + Anti-wrinkle injections, for volume loss, asymmetry correction and wrinkle reduction. This gives time for treatment to settle, trial injectables and slowly achieve restoration or changes.

Structure, Body: Coolsculpting®, non-surgical fat freezing can take 6 months to achieve full results so it’s best to address early on. This treatment is suitable for all areas of the body including: Stomach, chin, knees, bingo wings, inner/ outer thighs, bra fat and ankles.

Skincare: If you have major skin concerns such as acne and uneven pigmentation, it’s best to get the situation under control. This is the time we would prescribe topicals, like retinoids. In addition, brown spots, fine lines, pores, and redness can be attended to with laser, chemical peels or microneedling.

6 months 

Texture: Face

Microneedling or light peels to target any uneven skin texture and skin firmness. If multiple treatments are required, we can schedule these in accordingly.

3 months 

Structure & Texture, Face: HIFU Facelift with Ultraformer® III. The non-surgical facelift uses ultrasound technology to promote collagen regeneration deep below the skin’s surface, restoring youthful strength and elasticity.

Profhilo® injectable moisturiser to achieve a glowing complexion and plump skin.

Structure & Texture, Body: HIFU skin tightening to tighten body areas in combination with Profhilo® to improve skin texture on body such as knees, tummy and arms.
