Treatments & Skincare during pregnancy
As everyone knows, women have to take extra while pregnant. This means that many cosmetic treatments will have to wait. However, that does not mean that they are unable to enjoy some pampering. At the Light Touch Clinic we have two fabulous treatments and an advanced skincare range which are safe during pregnancy and can help relieve some unwelcome side effects.
Due to hormonal changes many pregnant ladies have problems with their skin. In particular, acne makes a reappearance for many women. Luckily, these unwelcome spots disappear after giving birth. However, acne can be frustrating and affect self-esteem. While pregnant women will not be able to use some stronger treatments due to the chemicals that they contain, Dermalux LED Phototherapy is a safe and effective treatment.
Our knowledgable aestheticians will analyse your skin and put together a treatment plan which will address your concerns.
Using a combination of red and blue light, this treatment gives skin an instant boost and can help reduce the blemishes.
The blue light has antibacterial properties which fight acne bacteria on the skin and can help prevent further breakouts.
The red light can help reduce inflammation, increases hydration levels, regulates the skin’s oil production and speeds up skin repair.
Did we mention that Dermalux is an incredibly relaxing treatment? Many of our patients compare it to lying in the sun. With no downtime, it’s a fantastic treatment.
Relax and relieve the discomfort associated with pregnancy with a pregnancy massage. This can be a great one-off treatment or for ongoing results why not book a course of treatments?
Using safe, gentle pre-natal techniques, our massage therapists will focus on common areas of discomfort during pregnancy. This can help release tight muscles and relieve tight muscles.
Please note that our pregnancy massage is only suitable for women after their first trimester.
Due to the nature of some of the chemicals and aromatherapy oils in our advanced skincare ranges, many of products are not suitable during pregnancy. However, BioEffect, one of our best-selling skin ranges, is perfectly safe during pregnancy.
In particular, we recommend the EGF serum. It’s the most popular product in the range and has fab results too! Using natural ingredients, the EGF serum delivers powerful anti-ageing and keeps yours skin looking youthful and radiant. Remember a little goes a long way so all you will need is a couple of drops! Free from parabens and fragrances, this serum is hypoallergenic and suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
You can find out more about the different products in the range and order BioEffect products from our online shop. However, if you are new to the range, you might find it more beneficial to pop into the clinic and speak with Fariba.
