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.

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
- Aluminum Chloride
- Chemical Sunscreens
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.
