Nothing prepares you for pregnancy, except perhaps already having been through one! If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve made it, only to discover a host of post pregnancy peculiarities that are less than likable. Acne, stubborn fat, the appearance of unwanted hair, vaginal changes – these are just a few of the things you might be facing as you enter post pregnancy care.

The good news is you’re not alone. Hundreds of new moms struggle with the same problems. There are safe and effective solutions that don’t have to include prescription medications with unwanted side effects. The question is, which of the following best describes your post pregnancy problem?

#1: Obnoxious Acne

A surge of acne after pregnancy is common. As your body kicks into baby making mode, your hormones go into overdrive. Postpartum care often focuses on helping your hormones reset. For some women, hormone levels never exactly match their pre-pregnancy levels. Acne breakouts that rival adolescence are common but treatable.

Prescription strength medications can provide acne relief, but they also pose unwanted side effects and risks. Some of the most effective and non-invasive acne treatments can be found at your local MedSpa. Be sure to discuss whether or not you’re breastfeeding so baby isn’t put at risk.

#2: Unwanted Hair

Those acne causing hormones can also trigger the growth of unwanted hair. It’s not uncommon to see dark hairs appearing under the chin and above the upper lip amongst other areas. While shaving, plucking, and waxing are viable solutions, none of these are permanent. Who wants to invest money in hair removal products when you have more important uses for your hard-earned cash, like the arsenal of baby products you’ll need to keep stocked?

Your local MedSpa offers a long-term hair reduction solution to unwanted hair: Laser hair removal.

At Dermacare of Hampton Roads, we take it one step further by offering both laser and BBL solutions. Our treatments are FDA-approved for all skin types. Not only are they the most cost effective over the long-term, but they’re also non-invasive and perfect for post breastfeeding use.

#3: Stubborn Deposits of Fat

When it comes to post pregnancy care, bodysculpting can be your best friend.

Now, we know what you may be thinking. You just grew a human being. Your belly was baby’s prime piece of real estate, and getting rid of the extra square footage from that internal studio apartment is tough. You’re already on a healthy diet and exercising, and if you’re breastfeeding, your water intake is excellent. If you plan to stick to this healthy lifestyle, you’re creating the perfect stage for bodysculpting.

There are several solutions available that address specific bodysculpting needs – such as contouring, fat reduction, and skin tightening – so that you can achieve sustainable fat loss and lose inches. Through a personal consultation with our specialists, you can determine which treatment will give you the best desired results and when you can safely start.

#4: Stretch Marks

Tiger stripes – they’re the mark of your awesomeness, but you may not be too keen about showing them off. You don’t have to keep the so-called tummy trophy.

Stretch marks can be visibly reduced via skin tightening procedures. Our specialists expertly use two systems to reduce their appearance:

  1. Halo: Target precise skin damage with customizable treatment. The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser helps improve the appearance of tone, texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. We’ll discuss how it can benefit you and how to achieve the best results during your consultation.
  2. Microneedling: Did you know that stretch marks are basically a kind of scar? They’re some of the most noticeable because the growth of baby caused your skin to stretch at an accelerated rate. SkinPen Microneedling is collagen induction therapy, a comfortable treatment that can be customized to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

#5: Vaginal Changes

Let’s be honest; vaginal changes after a pregnancy can be uncomfortable, both physically and in conversation. If you’re a first-time mom, you might be wondering if the changes you’ve noticed are normal. Vaginal dryness that causes itching or burning, urinary leakage when you sneeze or cough (even laugh), and uncomfortable intercourse are all normal after pregnancy, particularly your first. Postpartum care is the perfect time to promote vaginal health.

MedSpas like Dermacare of Hampton Roads can safely reverse and reduce uncomfortable changes to the vaginal tissue post pregnancy and post breastfeeding. Why post breastfeeding? A laser cannot be used on a nursing mom, but we can discuss treatment options and prep for post breastfeeding care.

diVa laser vaginal therapy is the zero downtime, safe, and hygienic solution to vaginal discomfort and change. Take our 30-second quiz to find out if it’s right for you, and follow our blog to learn more about diVa.
