It has many names: the mommy belly, the mommy tummy, mommy pouch. The list of phrases describing the stubborn belly fat that hangs around your midsection (usually after a few kids, but not always) is endless. For a long time, the only way to get rid of it (after diet and exercise failed) was with plastic surgery. We’re here to say you don’t have to go under the knife to get a mommy makeover.
While a mommy makeover can mean different things to different clinics, we define it as the combination of specialized treatments that will help you love your postpartum (and beyond!) body. This may include body contouring, skin tightening, stretch mark reduction, wrinkle reduction, and intimate treatments—all of which we’ll cover together during your initial consultation. To give you an idea of what you can expect from each of these treatments, let’s walk through 5 ways to get a non-surgical mommy makeover at DermacareHR.
Did you know that it’s possible to get rid of stubborn belly fat without any anesthesia and with little to no downtime? If you’ve found yourself searching for ways to eliminate your mommy tummy without going under the knife, body contouring may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Unlike cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction, the fat melting and fat freezing options we have at DermacareHR are non-invasive and pain-free (to most people). During your consultation, one of our Dermacare Experts will determine whether fat melting or fat freezing is best for your desired results. For fat-melting, we generally use Exilis Ultra; for fat freezing, we use CoolSculpting.
Nothing puts a dent in your confidence like loose, saggy skin. It can occur anywhere on the body but tends to affect us most when it’s on our face, neck, or chest area. A lot of moms who breastfeed their babies also struggle with saggy breasts.
The good news is that we offer two different types of skin tightening treatments: Exilis Ultra and BBL SkinTyte. Both can reveal smoother, more youthful skin without surgery. Treatment times can vary based on the method used and the amount needed, usually between 3 and 4 for the Exilis Ultra. BBL SkinTyte is sold in packages of 5.
If you’re ready to reduce or eliminate stretch marks, Vivace Microneedling is the treatment for you. It works by stimulating your body’s production of collagen and elastin to provide results that improve over 3-6 months. This treatment is FDA-approved and uses ultrafine needles to penetrate the skin and deliver radiofrequency (heat) energy to deeper layers of the skin. Unfortunately, most of our patients tell us it feels warm and slightly pinchy. One treatment takes between thirty minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the size of your treatment area. (While we most always lead with Vivace RF Microneedling for stretch mark revision, we will sometimes also recommend fractional laser treatment, like Halo or the laser CoolPeel, in combination.)
Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin diminishes as wrinkles, folds, and facial expression lines form. But here at DermacareHR, we have a number of treatments to stop wrinkles and other signs of aging in their tracks. Some of our most popular treatments include:
Just like every other part of the body, vaginal tissue changes with age. It can also change from significant events in your life such as childbirth, menopause, chemotherapy, or a hysterectomy. If you’re experiencing any vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, or the need for supplementary lubrication, contact us today for a consultation to discuss the diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy. (diVa can also improve symptoms of stress urinary incontinence—leaking a little urine with activities such as laughing, sneezing, coughing, or exercising!)
DiVa is about a 10-minute office procedure, but the appointment books for an hour. We typically numb the treatment area with a cream for about 30 minutes prior, then perform the treatment. DiVa requires no general anesthesia, has no significant downtime, and is safe and hygienic. We also offer Exilis Ultra Intimate, which can help augment what diVa does with external tightening of the labia.
