Post-pregnancy Rejuvenation

Pregnancy can take a toll on your body and face, and therefore your mental health, leaving you wanting to go back to how you looked before your pregnancy. And it’s no secret that pregnancy can bring on ageing signs, such as wrinkles and sagging skin which may avoid you from feeling your absolute best. The good news is that non-surgical treatments can combat this and help you feel better in your body. Women all around the world are turning to post-pregnancy rejuvenation to improve their body confidence and bring back a youthful, more refreshed look.

Ultherapy

If you’re noticing signs of ageing when looking in the mirror it may be worth considering Ultherapy to give your face and body the lift it needs. Pregnancy activates skin laxity and areas such as sagging abdominal skin post-pregnancy can be tough to get rid of naturally. Ultherapy is a safe, less invasive alternative to a surgical lift for your face and body. This treatment focuses on skin tightening and utilises ultrasound to tighten and lift the areas of the skin that are usually targeted by a face lift. Collagen is an important part of keeping your skin looking fresh and with age, production of this important protein lessens.  Ultherapy stimulates collagen production by targeting sagging skin and wrinkles in your face, neck, décolletage, abdomen, arms, thighs and knees. This results in a more youthful appearance due to tighter skin. A clear benefit of this procedure is that there is no downtime, so you can go back to your active lifestyle. You will see results over the weeks and months after your Ultherapy session and the improvements are known to be long lasting keeping your skin tight and naturally rejuvenated.

Broad Band Light (BBL)

Are your post-pregnancy skin blemishes holding back your confidence? Broad Band Light, also known as BBL, can target pigmentation, blood vessels, rosacea and acne to give you back your clear complexion. Broad Band Light helps to tighten skin as it impacts the common signs of ageing in the top and deeper layers of the skin. This treatment utilises filtered light to heat the skin and send energy to target areas of ageing. This then stimulates cell regeneration as it creates more collagen growth. This process has been known to treat and reduce acne as well as combating acne scarring and sun damage. Your smooth skin will return with Broad Band Light and your skin imperfections will fade with this treatment. Broad Band Light is a non-invasive procedure that has minimal downtime and results can usually be seen between 2-6 weeks. Whilst this process cannot remove Caesarean scars it can target the redness and make the scar less noticeable making this a go-to for post-pregnancy rejuvenation.

SkinPen microneedling

Pregnancy can lead to skin damage such as stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and lines that weren’t previously there. Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), targets skin damage with a fine needle stamping device that creates micro-holes in the top layer of the skin. These holes then heal, smoothing out skin imperfections and wrinkles. This process of creating controlled injuries activates collagen production in the healing process, as when the skin heals it tightens. This leaves it feeling rejuvenated and smooth again. This is the perfect treatment for mums looking to treat stretch marks and say hello to clearer skin with less pigmentation, redness and marks. Microneedling with SkinPen improves the tone and texture of the skin over time by targeting the epidermis. Each treatment takes 30-45 minutes and only has mild levels of discomfort. At least four treatments are recommended for the best results; however each case varies.

Women now have a variety of therapies available to get them back to firmer, smoother skin without invasive surgeries. Ultherapy, Broad Band Light and SkinPen are options for mothers to consider post-pregnancy that will target signs of ageing and imperfections. Non-surgical treatments can help improve the way you look and feel, keeping you looking young and feeling fresh.
