We love new moms and mamas-to-be at Skin Pharm.
And one of our most commonly-asked questions is which Skin Pharm procedures are pregnancy-safe. (Same goes for breastfeeding, too.) So if you’re breastfeeding, pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant, keep reading to be in-the-know!
P.S. – Our recommendations follow the same guidelines as The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, but we also recommend discussing any skin care treatments or procedures with your OBGYN, too.
We recommend receiving clearance from your OBGYN prior to getting a BBL photofacial if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Our BBL photofacial will be the fastest, most effective facial you’ve ever had. It’s a quick option with immediate results and nearly nonexistent downtime. This light therapy treatment stimulates skin cell regeneration and collagen production, perfect for active breakouts, sun spots and unwanted redness. (If you’re looking to treat melasma in particular, we might recommend chemical peels, gold infusion, microneedling or PRP treatments instead.)
We recommend receiving clearance from your OBGYN prior to getting a chemical peel if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
A chemical peel is a quick way to address several skin concerns: sun damage, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, visible pores, uneven skin tone and acne. It’s customizable, too—we’ve got different types and levels based on your needs and skin concerns. Whichever you choose, a chemical peel will exfoliate your skin on a deeper level for a brighter, more even-toned complexion.
We recommend receiving clearance from your OBGYN prior to a Gold Infusion treatment if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Using a gentle stamping method, our Gold Infusion delivers a customized batch of antioxidants and hydrating ingredients just beneath the skin’s surface. This high-tech treatment stimulates collagen production, refines skin texture, tightens pores and hydrates skin—perfect for scars, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it’s suitable for all skin types and colors, including thin and sensitive.
We recommend receiving clearance from your OBGYN prior to microneedling if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Microneedling is a Skin Pharm favorite, for good reason! It’s safe for all skin types and helps improve the look and feel of your skin using fine needles to stimulate new skin cells. Microneedling is ideal for skin concerns like melasma, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and it can even be combined with PRP. More info on that below!
We recommend receiving clearance from your OBGYN prior to PRP treatment if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
PRP is one of the best anti-aging and restorative procedures available, because it uses your own blood to rejuvenate areas of concern, boosting collagen and elastin just below your skin’s surface. It’s suitable for all skin types and colors and can be combined with microneedling for an even deeper effect.
What about skin care?
We’ve got you covered! Check out our guide to pregnancy-safe skin care. We generally recommend use of all products except retinoids and hydroquinone during pregnancy, and then everything but hydroquinone when you’re breastfeeding, but you should always check with your OBGYN for clearance first.
