Every mother must be proud of her body for helping bring a newborn to this world. However, pregnancy should not be a deterrent for women wanting to look their best at all times. Many women put off pregnancy plans, secretly fearing the cosmetic changes it may bring. Here is a short list about treatments available to overcome post-pregnancy physical changes.
Stretch marks are caused by the breakage of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin due to excessive stretching during pregnancy. These may form over the abdomen, chest, arms, legs etc. Hydrating the skin well with specific creams go a long way in reducing the severity and spread of stretch marks. Today, there are several treatments available for collagen induction including micro needling with or without PRP, micro needling with radiofrequency, mesotherapy with various serums and also lasers.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can increase pigmentation of the neck, underarms, abdomen, thighs etc. Today, numerous treatments include microdermabrasion, professional peels and mesotherapy with /without needles where special devices help create micro channels in the upper layer of the skin to facilitate vitamin/serum cocktail penetration. Lasers can also be used. These therapies are very effective. The quality of products used ensure excellent results within a few sessions.
Post-pregnancy hair fall:
Telogen Effluvium is a temporary but distressing condition where a new mother experiences excessive hair fall after delivery. It lasts for about three to four months and occurs because many hair follicles move to the shedding phase simultaneously, causing visible and worrisome hair loss. After evaluation for nutritional deficiencies and other causes, women are offered cosmetic treatments like PRP with biotin, peptides, growth factors, stem cells etc. along with low level laser therapy to stimulate the follicles and provide nutrients to arrest hair fall and promote new growth. This highly effective treatment ensures visible and satisfying results.
Cellulite Reduction and Body Contouring :
Devices like Radiofrequency, Cryolipolysis, Lipo Laser, Hifu, Emsculpt etc. can help new mothers regain their shape and contours. This equipment helps in breaking down the subcutaneous fat and build dermal collagen, thereby bringing about tightening and toning of the skin.
