The hardest is figuring out what will be effective but also safe for the baby. No matter what skin issue you’re facing during pregnancy, we can help!

Dry Skin – Skin can become more fragile during pregnancy. Dryness can occur, leaving skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. We recommend deeply hydrating treatments every month, like our Hydrafacial Deluxe, which will slough off the dead skin and impart necessary antioxidants, peptides and hydrators. In between treatments, reach for a nourishing moisturizer, like NeoCutis Hyalis+ or SkinBetter Science Hydration Boosting Cream. Both prevent the loss of moisture, while improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles due to dehydration.
Discoloration – Whether you already had discoloration like sun damage before pregnancy, or developed melasma during pregnancy, we can help! Every 4-6 weeks it is recommended to do microneedling treatments, which will help break up pigment and leave skin noticeably more even. At home, you can safely use a chemical exfoliant, like glycolic or lactic acid, 3 nights a week. These AHA’s will gently break down surface pigment and retexturize skin.
Breakouts – Breakouts can be the most frustrating skin problem during pregnancy. Traditional methods like retinol and salicylic acid are not deemed safe, but there are still options! Coming in once a month for a Hydrafacial Deluxe or Oxygeneo Facial, will help clear congestion, reduce redness and promote healing. Between treatments, swap out your traditional cleanser for one with benzoyl peroxide or AHA’s. We recommend SkinBetter Science Refresh Oxygen Infusion Wash.
