Your Guide to Pregnancy Safe Skin Treatments

During your pregnancy may have been expecting to have that incredible “pregnancy glow” everyone talks about… but instead, your skin had other plans! The reality for some mums-to-be is that pregnancy may come with an array of skin changes from pigmentation to acne, irritation to dry and flaking skin. This is why we’ve created our ‘Guide to Pregnancy Safe Skin Treatments’. 

During pregnancy there may be a change in your hormones, which may cause your skin to produce an excessive amount of sebum (oil). This oil may then clog your pores and lead to inflammation and breakouts. 

Pigmentation may become more apparent during these hormonal changes. There may be a temporary increase in the amount of melanin your body produces which may cause pigmentation, such as melasma. 

While there are certain treatments that you may need to avoid during pregnancy (and breastfeeding), there are still quite a few facial treatments that we offer at Inigo Cosmetic that can help restore balance and hydration to your skin whilst also providing you with some much-needed relaxation.


HydraFacial is a medical grade hydra dermabrasion device that uses vortex technology to carry out a patented three-part regimen: cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing the skin with intensive serums with the aim of aiding in moisturising, brightening, plumping and protecting.
