Ready for a Mommy Makeover – Look and Feel Better Without Surgery
Becoming a parent is an amazing, life-changing event. For most moms, it also means some not-so-amazing physical changes and the quest to get their pre-baby body back. Diet and exercise are a great way to start getting back in shape. Still, some moms need a little extra help after giving birth. They may start considering a mommy makeover but with so many of these makeovers involving plastic surgery, many decide against it. Not to worry, there are a variety of noninvasive procedures available, to help new moms look and feel better without surgery.
After giving birth, many moms find themselves battling stubborn deposits of fat. When no amount of diet and exercise can get rid of them, there is a noninvasive alternative to liposuction – CoolSculpting. A non-surgical body contouring procedure, CoolSculpting freezes and eliminates stubborn fat. The procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells, revealing a more sculpted physique. Once the fat is destroyed and eliminated, it is gone for good, as long as your weight is maintained. It is generally recommended to wait for 3 to 6 months after birth and breastfeeding before considering CoolSculpting.
Laser Hair Removal
Pregnancy creates a lot of hormonal changes in a woman body and new moms often find themselves with hair in places they’d never had it before. Plucking, shaving, and waxing are only temporary solutions and can be irritating or even painful. Laser hair removal provides a fast, easy solution for permanent hair reduction, allowing you to look and feel your best without all the hassle. This technology targets and destroys the cells responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding skin. It is effective on many parts of the body including the face, chest, back, underarms, bikini line and legs.
Botox and Fillers
The hormonal changes of pregnancy combined with sleepless nights and the stress of parenting can also impact the health and appearance of your skin. This can cause a new mom to look tired or older than she actually is and no one wants that. Facial rejuvenation can have a positive effect not only on your overall appearance but can also provide a huge lift for your self-confidence. Injectable fillers such as Botox or Juvederm are a popular choice to erase wrinkles or restore volume to regions of the face. It is typically recommended that moms wait until they have finished breastfeeding before considering Botox or any other filler injections. If you’re not ready to stop breastfeeding and don’t want to wait to get started on your mommy makeover, microneedling just might be the perfect alternative.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. On its own, it can help stimulate collagen which boosts the skin’s strength and elasticity as well as replacing dead skin cells. When the procedure is combined with platelet rich plasma or PRP, it can amp up the effectiveness of microneedling. The great thing about this procedure, especially for new moms, is there are no chemicals involved and no need to wait to get back your skin’s youthful firmness and glow.
