YAY & NAY TREATMENTS DURING PREGNANCY


Hi Dermalovers!

Don't you worry if you are pregnant but still want to get treatment for your skin at any aesthetic/medic clinic, because Premium Dermalove Batam has all the solution! Pregnant women are usually not spared from skin problems, starting from dull skin, pimples or even the appearance of the annoying black spots. This is nothing else but caused by hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy.


Energy-based treatments such as lasers, Intense PuIsed Light (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF), HIFU and injection treatments such as fillers, botox and others are not recommended during pregnancy. Here's the explanation:


1. Laser

Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a medical treatment that uses light with a certain wavelength. There are many types of lasers, such as Nd-Yag laser, fractional CO2 laser, erbium laser, yellow laser and so on. The use of laser equipment is not recommended for pregnant women because it is an energy base device. To this date, there have been no studies examining the safety of lasers in pregnant women. Therefore, doctors do not recommend performing laser procedures during pregnancy.


2. IPL

Intense PuIsed Light (IPL) is a medical procedure that utilizes light waves with a wavelength of 420-1200 Hz. IPL has been widely used in the world of beauty because it has many functions. IPL functions are for example to rejuvenate the skin, reduce acne, brighten the skin, reduce dark spots, and remove unwanted hair. Unfortunately, there are no studies that prove the safety of IPL for pregnant women, because research on pregnant women is very difficult to do, considering that it can harm the baby. Therefore, researchers are usually very careful in conducting research on pregnant women. Therefore, for the safety of the mother and the baby, this treatment should also be avoided during pregnancy.


3. RF atau HIFU

Radio Frequency (RF) and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) are treatments that can stimulate collagen and tighten the skin in the preferred area. This treatment is a non-invasive treatment but can cause pain or discomfort during the procedure. Painful stimulation in pregnant women can cause contractions, so it is not recommended to do this action during pregnancy.


4. Injection Treatment

All injection treatments such as skin boosters, fillers, botox and threads are not recommended during pregnancy. Again, there have been no studies showing the insecurity of injection treatment in pregnant women. However, any type of fluid that is injected into a pregnant woman's body can circulate in the bloodstream and it is risky that it will reach the fetus.


5. Chemical Peeling

Chemical peeling is a medical treatment that is done by applying a special active ingredient liquid which has the functions to remove dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. There are many types of chemical peels that are applied in many different ways, such as glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, retinol, mandelic acid, lactic acid and so on. The percentage also varies, from 10% to 70%. Chemical peels should only be done by a professional aesthetic doctor because if any mistakes happens in the application it may cause harms and risk of any side effects. Glycolic acid and alpha hydroxyl acid with a low percentage are believed to be safe for pregnant women, but other chemical peels have not been proven safe, so they should be strongly avoided.


So, what kind of treatments are recommended during pregnancy period?


1. Facial

Facial is an aesthetic treatment that functions to clean blackheads on the face. Facials at each aesthetic clinic usually have different procedures. Facials that can be done are only those that are relaxing and cleaning blackheads. If facials are combined with energy-based devices or chemical peels, these facials are also dangerous and not recommended. However, Premium Dermalove Batam has facials that are safe for pregnant women and can be adjusted according to their skin type and needs. Premium Dermalove Batam offers facials with extractions done by skilled therapists, thereby minimizing the pain that pregnant women will experience. Facial treatments at Premium Dermalove Batam are also combined with massages for relaxation and masks to reduce redness after blackhead extraction.


2. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a medical aesthetic treatment using a mechanical peeling technique or a technique for removing dead skin cells using a device. The accumulation of dead skin cells can cause various skin problems, such as skin dullness, clogged pores and possibly even cause acne. Microdermabrasion aims to rejuvenate the skin, making the skin texture smoother, moisturized, supple, healthy and bright. Premium Dermalove Batam has a microdermabrasion treatment which is very safe for pregnant women. Microdermabrasion owned by Premium Dermalove Batam is the latest generation Silk Peel machine which has a 3 in 1 function, namely exfoliation, extraction and serum infusion (exfoliation, extraction and serum infusion) into facial skin.
