Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage!
It's now too close to benefit from microdermabrasion treatments if you're going abroad.
I always leave 4 weeks before or after known sun exposure before treating skin with microdermabrasion. Post treatment skin can become over sensitive to UV light and your would risk acquiring post inflammatory hyperpigmentation - brown pigmentation irregularities.
Very gentle vitamin c and fruit based enzyme "peels" which won't sensitise your skin can be used at this late stage if you need some exfoliation.
I strongly recommend the use of a vitamin c antioxidant serum such as those made by Skinceuticals, Skinmedica and Medik8 and a broad spectrum facial sunscreen to ensure radiance on your big day and to protect it from harmful ageing effects and pigment darkening effects of sunshine.

Firstly- congratulations! We love a good wedding at Tracey Bell.
Medical microdermabrasion is a very safe and effective procedure that many of our clients love and benefit from.
At Tracey Bell we believe in a three-pronged approach when it comes to the skin - canvas, line and volume.
Medical microdermabrasion targets the canvas. It is mechanical exfoliation of the skin, removing the upper layers (stratum corneum) to produce a refreshed, renewed and retexturised appearance. The process uses a vacuum suction and fine abrasive crystals to polish and resurface all skin types. As we age our skin cell turnover slows down as does collagen and elastin production, Microdermabrasion is like an accelerated exfoliation it helps to promote collagen, elastin and cell nutrition and speeds up cell production. Perfect for a full rejuvenation.
We do love to combine our microdermabrasion with our specifically developed SkinScription peels which include: Rejuvenation peel - to brighten and lighten; Purification peel- targets acne and black heads and also Age Management peel - specifically for the more mature skin.
If you need more information on peels or microdermabrasion pop by our site http://www.traceybell.co.uk, and follow us on twitter- we love to stay in touch @traceybell.
