Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
Being pregnant or having a new baby and breastfeeding is often a wonderful time in one’s life which goes by far too quickly. We encourage you to enjoy the special bonding time and make the most of it.
However, we realise that both pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause havoc with your skin…pigmentation, breakouts, enlarged pores and dull-looking skin are not unusual and can be quite distressing. Sometimes, you may just need a bit of “me time” or an escape to a place where someone will pamper and look after you and your skin.
Whilst there are some treatments that you cannot have whilst pregnant or breastfeeding, there is a wide range of treatments that are safe and effective and can help you get your skin looking great.
Treatments that are safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding:
- Treatment facials
- Certain chemical peels
- Photodynamic therapy
- PRP skin rejuvenation
We advise our patients to avoid injectables and treatments that require a topical anaesthetic or contain ingredients that may be harmful.
Stretch mark and scar treatments can be started 6 weeks after having a baby. We recommend waiting until you have finished breastfeeding before embarking on a weight loss programme or cryolipolysis (fat freezing).
Our team of dedicated professionals are able to advise you and treat your skin concerns during this time in your life and can give you guidance about treatments and skincare products and ingredients that are safe and effective. We are also able to advise on the best time to start other more invasive treatments.
