Pregnancy can change your skin in a million different ways. Many of these changes fade away after delivery, but sometimes there are stubborn cosmetic concerns that need a helping hand. If you are unhappy with the way your abdominal area looks, consider these effective treatments.
Common Changes Caused By Pregnancy
It is no secret that having a baby is tough on your body. From fast weight gain to stretched skin and everything in between, pregnancy is particularly prone to leaving its mark on your tummy.
Here are the most common changes that a woman may experience in her abdominal area:
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
- C-section scar
For many women, these changes can be frustrating, discouraging, and emotionally upsetting. If you are eager for your body to bounce back to the way that it looked before having children, in-office treatments can address your concerns — and potentially boost your confidence too.
Post-Pregnancy Treatments for Tighter and More Even Skin
There is only so much you can do with at-home remedies such as massage and exercise. Even products designed to repair laxity, target stretch marks, and fade scars often come up short. Fortunately, there are several in-office treatments with the power to visibly improve your skin.
For example, abdominal skin laxity can be addressed with a combination of biostimulatory fillers like hyperdilute Radisse or Sculptra and a skin tightening device like Genius RF microneedling. Meanwhile, stomach stretch marks can be treated with the Vbeam® laser or SkinPen with PRP.
There are even ways to lessen the appearance of your C-section scars. Our practice often uses the Vbeam laser, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, and steroid injections to fade these marks.
We understand that you may want to start your treatment plan as soon as possible. However, please be aware that these services should not be performed until you are done breastfeeding.
