shutterstock_119521075You love your little bundle of joy – but you’re not exactly the biggest fan of the stretch marks that came along during your pregnancy.  While you were vigilant about applying lotion while you were expecting, those stretch marks still appeared on your stomach, hips, thighs, and even your buttocks.

Add to the fact that you had a splash of acne during your pregnancy, and it’s no wonder you’re looking for solutions to your biggest pregnancy complexion problems.

If that sounds familiar to you, then it’s time to set an appointment with Nhi Le, MD at the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas today! A dedicated physician board-certified in Internal Medicine, Aesthetic Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine, Dr. Le is an expert in hormones, wellness, and aesthetics for men and women.

 

Solving Your Stretch Marks

While stretch marks are often a sign of a happy and full life, there’s no denying that you’d like to wear a bikini or a tank top without worrying how you look.  At Fountain of Youth Medical Spa, anti-aging expert Dr. Le administers innovative treatments for fading the appearance of stretch marks.

One of these treatments includes the Fraxel laser treatment, a laser-light technology that kick-starts your body’s collagen production.  As collagen production increases, the skin’s turnover increases, which helps bring younger skin to the surface faster.

Fraxel laser treatments are virtually painless; most patients only report a mild heating sensation on the treatment area.  Patients should expect to undergo a few sessions to see ideal results. Keep in mind that this treatment is not advised during pregnancy or breast feeding.

 

Eliminating Your Pregnancy Acne

Acne is a common symptom of pregnancy; thanks to those fluctuating hormones, your skin is more likely to experience an outbreak while you’re expecting your bundle of joy.  If you’re suffering from post-pregnancy acne, visit the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas to undergo a customized treatment for your specific acne.

Depending on the severity of your acne, Dr. Le may administer a laser-light treatment, which helps kill any bacteria that may be lurking in your pores.  Microdermabrasions can also help remove the dead layer of skin that could be aggravating your acne.  Dr. Le may recommend a few weeks of alternative laser-light treatments with microdermabrasions or, in severe cases, chemical peels.

Dr. Le also utilizes other facial treatments to help with acne, as well as other skin conditions, such as dryness, hyperpigmenatation, rough texture, and more. Hydrafacial, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, and Microneedling are additional facial treatments that help with different complexion issues post-pregnancy.

It’s important to keep in mind that the treatments mentioned above for both stretch marks and acne are safe and effective to use after pregnancy and breastfeeding. During pregnancy, Dr. Le recommends BASQ skin care products, organic facials, Microneedling, and RG-cell serum that is rich in botanical stem cells’ growth factors and antioxidants.

Don’t put up with pregnancy acne well past your child’s birth.  Schedule a consultation with Dr. Le at the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas today.
