Can I Still Get Regular HydraFacials® While Pregnant?

By: Clifton Dirk King


Many women experience skin changes during pregnancy, making it even more important to continue a dedicated skin care regimen. In some cases, however, skin treatments for pregnant women may need to be customized to ensure their safety. At C&D Medical Aesthetics in Belton, TX, board-certified RN Clifton Dirk King is committed to providing the safest and most effective skin rejuvenation solutions possible to keep patients looking and feeling their best throughout all stages of life, including pregnancy and the postpartum period. Keep reading to learn more about one of the most popular in-office skin treatments, the HydraFacial, and find out if it is considered safe and appropriate for pregnant women.

What does a HydraFacial do?

The HydraFacial is a fantastic choice for refreshing your skin and improving your complexion with no downtime. During a HydraFacial, the provider will use a number of hand-selected products and techniques that most closely match your skin care goals. The primary steps involved in a HydraFacial are:

  • Cleansing
  • Exfoliation
  • Extraction
  • Moisturizing
  • Nourishing

With regular HydraFacial treatments, patients can keep their skin clear, clean, and healthy, resulting in:

  • Glowing skin
  • More youthful-looking skin
  • A clearer complexion
  • Fewer breakouts or acne flare-ups
  • Smoother skin texture
  • Smaller pores

Is a HydraFacial safe during pregnancy?

With most women taking extra caution regarding the products they use during pregnancy, many patients wonder if certain serums and techniques included in the HydraFacial are safe while they are carrying a child. In most cases, a HydraFacial is safe during pregnancy, though your provider will likely recommend substituting or omitting specific products and/or techniques used during a pregnancy HydraFacial. Not only will this ensure the health and safety of you and your baby, but it will also account for heightened sensitivity and other pregnancy-related skin conditions you may have. Prior to any skin treatment, including a HydraFacial, be sure to let your provider know that you are pregnant so that theycan customize your experience accordingly.

How often can you get HydraFacials?

The ideal frequency for HydraFacial treatments will depend on the specific products being used, the patient’s response to treatment, and other factors. While many patients choose to have routine HydraFacials every 2 – 3 weeks, pregnant women may be encouraged to space their HydraFacials out about every 4 – 6 weeks.

What can I do for my skin during pregnancy instead of a HydraFacial?

For patients who prefer to pause their regular HydraFacial routine during pregnancy, our knowledgeable team can recommend another treatment to help keep the skin smooth and clear. Many women schedule more traditional custom facials throughout their pregnancy, while others choose to practice at-home skin care only until the end of their pregnancy. Whether you are looking to keep up with your HydraFacials while pregnant, find a HydraFacial alternative, or learn more about skin care product lines you can use at home, we can help.
