Given the increased popularity of the HydraFacial skin treatment, several patients have inquired about the safety of the procedure, particularly while pregnant. In general, yes, the HydraFacial treatment is absolutely safe to have completed while pregnant. However, you should absolutely inform your skincare provider that you are currently pregnant prior to being treated, as there are some parts of the procedure that may be omitted for pregnant patients.
The HydraFacial treatment is a very powerful facial and can help patients recover dulled or uneven textured skin. This is still true for pregnant patients who want to look and feel their best even during times of rampant hormonal changes.
Although a HydraFacial is considered a very safe procedure, some of the product ingredients used during the treatment, such as salicylic acid, have not been fully tested and proven safe during pregnancy. As such, it is important to disclose your pregnancy prior to being treated (all patients should receive a disclosure form to fill out at their provider’s office prior to being treated) and a skincare professional can fully customize the treatment to ensure it is safe while still providing optimal results.
