Pregnancy Safe Cosmetic Treatments

Page Updated:

At Deep Blue Med Spa, we are dedicated to providing effective treatments that nourish your skin during every stage of life. One question that our experts hear often is, “which treatments or products are safe to use during pregnancy?”

While we always recommend checking with your OB/GYN or healthcare provider before undergoing a service, there are several treatments that are generally considered safe during pregnancy. In addition, a number of our gentle skincare products can be used to help you maintain healthy skin while expecting and/or nursing.

Pregnancy Safe Aesthetic Treatments

Skin rejuvenation treatments that are typically pregnancy-safe include dermaplaning and microdermabrasion. Both of these treatments can be scheduled as a standalone procedure or added on to a facial to address complexion concerns like dryness or hyperpigmentation.

At Deep Blue Med Spa, we use high-quality hard wax that is hypoallergenic for facial waxing treatments. This service can typically be started or continued during pregnancy.

Pregnancy Safe Skin Care Products

A comprehensive skincare routine is a great way to nourish and pamper yourself during pregnancy. In general, most products that are offered at Deep Blue Med Spa are pregnancy-safe, including all Vitamin C serums and sunscreens.
