For many expectant mothers, a big concern is often “is this safe for my baby?” When it comes to skincare or medspa treatments, women are typically limited in what is safe during pregnancy. Doing your research is important, and with the right guidance from a skin care professional, you can find a variety of products that can be beneficial and safe for your skin both during and post-pregnancy.

Pregnancy Safe Epionce Products:

  • Gentle Foaming Cleanser
  • Enrich Firming Mask
  • Renewal Facial Lotion
  • Renewal Lite Facial Lotion
  • Renewal Eye Cream
  • Intense Defense Serum
  • Intensive Nourishing Cream
  • Ultra Shield SPF 50 Sunscreen
  • Renewal Calming Cream

Pregnancy Safe Silk Touch RX Products:

  • Hydrascrub
  • Essential Night Cream

Pregnancy Safe SkinMedica Products:

  • HA5

Ingredients to Avoid:

Certain ingredients in skincare products can be a cause for concern during pregnancy. It is best to avoid products that contain the following ingredients:

  • Retin-A, Retinol, Retinyl
  • Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid
  • Essential oils
  • Hydroquinone
  • Aluminum Chloride
  • Formaldehyde
  • Chemical Sunscreens
  • Dihydroxyacetone

Just because you are pregnant, doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself. The OxyGeneo Facial, Microdermabrasion, Microneedling (without radio frequency), and Dermaplaning are pregnancy safe and are great for your skin. It is important to note that all cosmetic surgeries as well as Botox, fillers, laser hair removal, laser treatments, and radio frequency treatments are not safe for pregnant women and should be avoided. 

To create a personalized pregnancy safe skin care regimen we recommend meeting with one of our medical aestheticians. They will be able to answer all of your questions and help find products that are right for you. Give us a call at 208-954-1185 to schedule your appointment!

5 Tips for Keeping Your Skin Healthy This Winter

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Nov 18, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Winter Skincare

The winter months can do a number on your skin. That’s why it’s so important to give your skin the proper care it needs to keep it hydrated, glowing, and looking its best. Below are our 5 top tips for preparing your skin for the winter:

  1. Stay hydrated. Hydration is key in the colder months so making sure you drink lots of water is important. Hydrating your body from the inside allows your skin on the outside to stay hydrated as well. Our aestheticians also suggest doing a hydrating mask once a week, like the Epionce Enriched Firming Mask, to help keep dry skin away.
  2. Wear sunscreen. Though the sun may not be out as much as the summer months, you are still at risk of sun damage. Not only is the ozone layer thinner in the winter, but snow and ice reflect sunlight, intensifying the sun's UV rays and damaging your skin. Wearing sunscreen year round, and especially during the winter, can help protect your skin.
  3. Moisturize. The cold, dry air can make your skin extra sensitive during colder months. Investing in a good moisturizer can help prevent red, itchy, or dry skin. Along with a good face moisturizer, applying lotion to the rest of your body (especially your hands) and wearing chapstick can help prevent dry, cracked skin in other areas too. 
  4. Nourish your body. Eating the right foods helps provide your body with essential vitamins and nutrients to help you achieve supple, clear, glowing skin. Healthy fats, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, and maintaining an overall healthy diet can help prepare your skin for the harsh winter months.
  5. Try out a new treatment. Sometimes our skin needs a little help and that’s okay! We offer a wide variety of treatments that can help you achieve your skin goals. Wondering which treatments are best for the winter? Try a laser treatment or a hydrating oxygeneo.

4 Reasons Why You Should Be Wearing Sunscreen Daily

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Jul 15, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Sunscreen Blog

We’re sure you’ve heard it hundreds of times, but wearing sunscreen every day is so important for the health of your skin. Have you ever stopped and wondered why? We are here to give you the inside scoop. Below are 4 reasons why sunscreen should be part of your daily skincare routine.

  • Protects Against UV Rays

The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can be extremely damaging to your skin. Increased exposure to both UVA and UVB rays is what damages skin cells. Sunscreen, when reapplied throughout the day, acts as a barrier against those harmful rays.

  • Reduces the Risk of Skin Cancer

A common cause of skin cancer is exposure to UV rays. It is recommended that you wear a minimum of SPF 15 daily, apply about 30 minutes before going outside, and reapply every two hours during exposure to the sun.

  • Keeps Skin Looking Youthful

Exposure to the UV rays can also cause wrinkles, sun spots, and leathery skin. These signs of sun damage can give the appearance of premature aging. Those who consistently wear sunscreen can prevent this and help maintain more youthful looking skin.

  • Helps Maintain a More Even Skin Tone

UV rays can cause hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and a change in skin texture. By using sunscreen you are preventing this and maintaining a more even skin tone.

You may think that sunscreen is only for the warmer months, but UV radiation still reaches the Earth on cloudy or colder days. With this in mind, it is important to wear sunscreen year round for the best protection.

Start giving your skin the love and care it needs by booking a complementary VISIA Skin Analysis with one of our medical aestheticians. They will be able to help provide recommendations to skincare treatments and products, including sunscreen, that will best help you accomplish your skin goals. Call us at 208-939-3110 to book yours today!
