While getting pregnant can be a joyous time, as you prepare to welcome a new baby into the family, it can also be a stressful time, so it’s important to find ways to relax and rejuvenate. While traditional spa treatments are perfectly safe under normal circumstances, some chemicals and procedures can be problematic for pregnant women. Instead, try some alternatives.
1. Prenatal services
These services are developed especially for pregnant women, which provides peace of mind that they are safe for expectant mothers.
2. Back-ne and front-ne treatment
One side effect of pregnancy is a hormone imbalance that can cause acne outbreaks anywhere on the body. While normal chemical exfoliating is efficient, it may risk fetal health. For a safer alternative, other simple exfoliating procedures are available. We may be able to offer safer alternatives for removing the dead skin and oily build-up that causes acne breakouts.
3. Body scrubs
Here is another exfoliating technique that can eliminate dead skin and reduce the itching that is so common during pregnancy. Additionally, the scrub is often followed by the application of a special moisturizing lotion. On top of keeping the skin smooth and healthy, it can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Regular treatments can reduce the need for more intensive skin therapy after the pregnancy.
While some traditional med spa treatments may not be available to pregnant women, there are still some spa treatments that can aid in relieving the aches, discomfort, stress, and skin conditions associated with pregnancy.
