Trust me, we’ve all been there! Whether you’re on your first kid or your 7th , you’ve most likely experienced a period of time where you’ve felt lost in the midst of sleepless nights, diaper changes and nursing. As cute as these little ones are, their constant care can take a toll on you both mentally and physically.  

When discussing Mommy Makeovers in the aesthetic world, we automatically assume we’ll need to go under the knife for all the nips, tucks and lifts we may need after having a baby. The thought of having to go through that after recovering from the physical strain of labor isn’t an ideal option for some. Luckily, there are a few Non-surgical options that can help you feel like your old self again at a fraction of the cost and without any long downtime.

Here are some options:

Botox Injections can be used to help reduce and soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Botox can be used to diminish crow’s feet, frown lines on the forehead, and can even help lift the brow. Treating these areas is will give your face a softer, more wide-eyed look- and did I mention it’s also a preventative treatment? In addition, Botox helps hide the signs of exhaustion from sleepless nights which over time can reduce the release of human growth hormones that are important for skin thickness and cell turnover.

Fillers the F word that continues to grow in popularity and acceptance for men and women of all ages. But, how are Fillers going to help cater to our Mommy needs? Sometimes loss of collagen after pregnancy is irreversible which can cause a decrease of volume in the face and in areas such as under the eyes. You can use fillers to fill in those hollows and lift your cheeks for a more contoured, refreshed look. You don’t need to look the part to act part! Fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm are hyaluronic acid fillers that will help you be the hot Mom you know you are!

Just when we thought we couldn’t gain anymore unwanted side effects of pregnancy; we were left with the scars to prove it! Sometimes hormonal changes from pregnancy can leave us with Hyperpigmentation and Melasma. Although some pigmentation caused from melasma cannot be erased completely, it can be lightened and maintained through Laser Treatments such as BBL (Broad Band Light) and Hydroquinone. These lasers treatment uses heat to stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen, in addition to blending your skin tone for refreshed brighter looking skin.

Restore the Glow! Debatably the best thing about pregnancy that we all wish we could keep are the hormones responsible for beautiful glowing skin we see during pregnancy. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be pregnant to keep it! Maintain your skin with Radiance HydraFacial with Brightenol booster to fight dull dry skin with awesome extractions and exfoliation.
