Unforunately, there is no right or wrong answer to this question, as each individual case is different. Some pregnant women may be able to safely get HydraFacials, while others may not be able to. It all depends on the health of the mother and her baby. Some women with high-risk pregnancies may not be able to get one, although most should be just fine.
Some of the potential risks associated with getting a HydraFacial while pregnant are largely due to potential reactions to the serums used during the treatment. Some of the potential risks include:
– Increased risk of miscarriage
– Increased risk of birth defects
– Increased risk of preterm labor
– Increased chance of infection
If you are considering getting a HydraFacial while pregnant, it is important to consult with your doctor first. He or she will be able to advise you on whether or not it is safe for you to have one. If it is determined that a HydraFacial is not safe for your circumstances, there are other skin care treatments available for you to try that may work best for you.
Receiving regular facials (with or without extractions) during pregnancy helps decrease the chances of experiencing acne due to changing hormone levels – which in turn decreases the risk of acne scarring.
