Safe Skin Treatments while Pregnant

July 31, 2019

 

Hi everyone, 

For those who didn’t know I’m expecting my first baby! And since becoming pregnant I did realise there is a lot of different opinions as to what skin treatments are safe and whats not safe during pregnancy. 

So I thought I would write a list of my favourite safe skin and lash treatments to have done while pregnant.

 

Can you have LED Light Therapy while pregnant?

Yes, LED Light Therapy is safe if you a pregnant or breastfeeding – so you can have glowing, fresh rejuvenated yummy-mummy skin! 
This non-invasive, pain-free treatment is friendly for all skin tones, types and conditions. Led Light therapy is also a chemical-free option for controlling the hormone-triggered acne of pregnancy. 
 

Is Derma-planing safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women?

This skin treatment is a great option for mild skin exfoliation available for pregnant or breastfeeding women, it doesn’t require any harsh chemical components and can be combines with Led Light Therapy and a mask to hydrate, rejuvenate and achieve overall glowing skin!

Are skincare acids safe to use during pregnancy?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are a bit trickier to navigate during pregnancy. Salicylic is a BHA, so best to avoid it. Glycolic Acid, which is an AHA, is considered safe to use in lower concentrations, but you can always use a product containing lactic acid instead. Lactic acid, another AHA, will help refine the pores and generally do the same thing that glycolic acid does, but at a lower strength and with less irritation.

 

LVL Lash Lift while pregnant?

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can effect the end result of a lashlift because of the additional hormones produced by the body and the changes that the bodies hair goes through during these times 

We have performed lifts on a good amount of both expecting and Breastfeeding mothers including myself for years and most times the lift works perfectly with only a very small percentage only experiencing less of a lift than usual.

Other than this lash lifts are safe while both pregnant and breast feeding
