How Pico Laser Can Help With Post-Pregnancy Pigmentations

Being a Mother is a milestone that is undeniably worth celebrating. It represents the beginning of a new chapter filled with hope, anticipation, and boundless possibilities with the arrival of a new life. It’s no secret that hormonal changes are unavoidable during pregnancy. 

What happens to your skin post-pregnancy then? Let’s dive into the topic of post-pregnancy concerns and how Pico Laser serves as a solution to all your skin concerns.

What Are Hormonal Changes?

Hormones are released into the bloodstream and travel throughout the body to target specific cells or organs to trigger a response. They play a crucial role within the body, including growth, metabolism, mood, immune function, and reproduction. 

Hormonal changes refer to the natural fluctuations in the levels of hormones within the body during pregnancy. This leads to various physical and emotional changes in the expectant mother, such as breast enlargement, mood swings, changes in appetite and energy levels. Hormonal changes during pregnancy are a natural and essential part of the process, ensuring that both the mother and the fetus receive the necessary support for a healthy pregnancy and childbirth.

How Hormonal Changes Affect Your Skin? 

During pregnancy, you may notice changes in your skin’s appearance. While some expectant mothers experience a healthy and radiant complexion, others may encounter issues like melasma, dark spots, dark underarms or other skin concerns such as acne breakouts. In the worst scenario, acne might gradually lead to acne scars, causing post-pregnancy skin conditions to linger around.

Your skin might look a bit different when you’re pregnant. This is because of extra blood flow and higher hormone levels in your body. Some women find that their skin looks healthier. Other women find that their skin gets dry or blotchy, or that they develop acne or other skin problems.

What Happens To The Skin Post-Pregnancy?

After pregnancy, the skin undergoes several noticeable changes due to the profound shifts in hormones and physical transformations that occur during the pregnancy process. 

Pico Laser…For Your Post-Pregnancy Concerns

Pico Laser post-pregnancy concerns

One of the most common post-pregnancy skin issues are pigmentation changes, including melasma, post acne marks, uneven skin tone. 

Melasma: Commonly referred to as the “mask of pregnancy” that appears in pigmented patches on the skin. Melasma generally develops during gestation due to the surge in hormone levels, such as estrogen and progesterone. These hormonal shifts can lead to an overproduction of melanin (pigment).

Post Acne Marks: When skin undergoes an inflammatory response due to acne breakouts, it can cause hyperpigmentation. Hormonal fluctuations during gestation can trigger acne breakouts in some women and as the body attempts to heal the affected areas, it can sometimes produce excess melanin and lead to dark spots.

Uneven Skin Tone: Hyperpigmentation and an overproduction of melanin are the reason for uneven skin tone. The surge in hormones can stimulate the melanin production in the skin. An increased blood flow during gestation can also create visible blood vessels, adding to skin discoloration. 

Pico Laser delivers ultra-short pulses of laser energy in picosecond, which target the pigment particles responsible for these skin concerns. This treatment breaks down excess melanin without causing damage to the surrounding skin, gradually fading the discoloration over a few sessions.
