Question: I’m pregnant, and now my face is discolored. What can I do to fix it?
It’s not unusual for pregnant women to develop blotchy areas of darkened skin, commonly called the “mask of pregnancy.” Some women are more likely to experience this type of skin discoloration than others. Women with darker complexions are more prone to this condition than women with lighter skin. You’re also more likely to develop skin discoloration if it runs in your family, and the condition may become more pronounced with each pregnancy.
Splotches can show up around your upper lip, nose, cheekbones, and forehead—and sometimes in the shape of a mask, hence the name.
How does this strange ailment present itself? Splotches can show up around your upper lip, nose, cheekbones, and forehead—and sometimes in the shape of a mask, hence the name. Dark patches may also appear on your cheeks or along your jawline. You may develop them on your forearms and other parts of your body that are exposed to the sun.
Got facial discoloration? Don’t despair! There are two medspa treatments that can help erase all pregnancy-related skin discolorations.
Revolutionary Treatments That Will Leave You All Clear
Clear + Brilliant
Pregnant? Then plan ahead. Consider a treatment like Clear + Brilliant, which rejuvenates the skin from the inside out using a non-invasive dioxide laser. Compared with similar laser treatments, Clear + Brilliant procedures require little recovery time and boast a lower risk of complications. Clear + Brilliant works its magic by revitalizing skin from the inside out. Its non-invasive laser technology gently resurfaces the top layer of the dermis by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin. Sounds complicated, right? But it’s really just about replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue. The result? Smoother, softer and youthful-looking skin. And the best part is that Clear + Brilliant erases skin discoloration.
Almost all patients who undergo Clear + Brilliant treatments report their skin looks younger and feels smoother. What’s more, their skin achieves a noticeable glow after a series of three to five Clear + Brilliant treatments. This glow owes to the fact that Clear + Brilliant significantly helps refresh skin tone and texture – indeed, many patients see a significant difference in the appearance of their skin after only one treatment. Within as little as a week, patients notice brighter, softer and more youthful skin texture. With multiple treatments skin discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles fade and soften.
IPL Photo Facials
If Clear+Brilliant isn’t your thing, then consider a photo facial. Photo facials use light therapy to boost collagen production and remove areas of skin discoloration. Compared to other skin rejuvenation techniques, results obtained with IPL photo facials are superior—and the procedure itself significantly gentler. Skin rejuvenation techniques such as chemical peels tend to generate stinging and burning. This often necessitates a few days spent recovering – not exactly convenient for someone who has just given birth. With photo facials, however, you can devote all your attention to your new bundle of joy.
IPL photo facials work by using a broad-spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of skin. This type of photo facial primarily targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) while leaving the top layers of skin (epidermis) unaffected. The heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating a number of different dermatological issues like discolored skin.
You can expect outstanding results with IPL photo facials. But you must be diligent about scheduling treatment sessions. IPL photo facial treatments call for five treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart to obtain desired results. In some cases, those results can be seen after only the first treatment, and skin continues to improve with each successive treatment.
