With so little time to the wedding I would recommend having some VBeam for the redness and the Clear and Brilliant for the pigmentation. I would also recommend Restylane for your under eye area. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Congratulation on your upcoming wedding!
Firstly, I would recommend excision of your pox scar by your nose, the resultant incision would camouflage fairly well with the nasolabial fold crease and a fine line scar will look better than a depression. It may still be somewhat red by your wedding, but should be easy to hide with foundation. You could also try subcision with filler injection, but the excision will give a better result.
As far as the the other enlarged pores and acne scars I would recommend a series of 2 treatments, one month apart with Lutronic's Infini. This is my favorite new procedure and largely replaces fractionated lasers in my practice because of the significant less downtime and side effects.
As far as the broken capillaries or and discoloration, a series of ipl/photofacials could give some improvement.
You may want to consider some fillers about 1 month prior to the wedding, these could be used to improve your undereye hollows as well as any other depressions.
PRP injections could also improve your under eye hollows as well as give your skin a healthy glow. This is also known as the vampire facial.
I would also reevaluate your home skin care.
We offer free consults at our tysons corner and richmond offices if you would liked to be evaluated in person and discuss a budget appropriate strategy for your short timeframe.
I think there are a few factors to consider, including cost and downtime.
There are many laser devices that can help treat your acne scars as well as large pores. If you do not have a lot of downtime to spare, you can consider multiple non ablative fractional laser treatments, the other option being a more intensive (more down time) fractional CO2 laser treatment.
The small broken capillaries can easily be treated with a laser.
The deep hollows can be treated with a filler.
I hope this helps.
Remember to seek out a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon specializing in these procedures.
