What Pregnancy Facials Do
- Preventative Maintenance
Treatments While Pregnant
During pregnancy, it is important to maintain a regular skincare routine, healthy diet, and regular exercise routine to stimulate your health and that of the baby. Many skin changes occur during pregnancy. Pregnant women may develop hyperpigmentation, formation of varicose veins, stretch marks, and acne.
Can I get a facial while pregnant?
Yes. Basic facials are a great way to pamper your skin, especially as your hormone levels change during pregnancy. Your skin can be especially sensitive during pregnancy, and some products can cause itching or rashes. It is generally safe to get a facial while pregnant—as long as you avoid harsh treatments like microdermabrasion and certain kinds of chemical peels, which can do more harm than good.
Some women’s skin light up in a pregnancy glow—others, not so much. When faced with common pregnancy problems like acne, dryness, and redness, a calming, hydrating facial can be just the thing.
At Central Park Beauty, we offer facial treatments designed specifically for pregnancy using only organic active ingredients.
Treatments and products to avoid during pregnancy
The safety of many aesthetic treatments during pregnancy remains unknown. This includes microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser treatments. Given the increased risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, as well as poor wound healing and increased risk of hypertrophic and keloidal scarring in pregnancy, these procedures are often avoided.
Products you shouldn’t use while pregnant include retinol, hydroquinone, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and benzoyl peroxide. In addition, new moms should hold off on cosmetic treatments such as Botox, Juvederm, CoolSculpting, injection sclerotherapy, laser treatments, microcurrent, and radiofrequency treatment.
