I remember back in my teens and twenties when I had a flat stomach. Somewhere after I hit 30, and definitely after pregnancy, well… it is definitely no longer flat. It’s flabby and at the wrong angle you could definitely accuse me of looking.. well.. a few months along.. sigh… So short of doing a relentless ab workout (which I have done in the past) there is another alternative, specially targeted at those 3 months post birth, but will still have an effect to reduce and improve your stomach. SA Mom blogs is giving away a skin tightening treatment to a winner in Cape Town.
Pregnancy can wreck havoc on your body. Stretch marks. Ug. I was so good with the Bio Oil on my stomach but I forgot to do it on my boobs. I still have stretch marks there. Pigmentation. Fatty deposits in unwanted places.
As your body has created new life, you owe it to yourself to restore and heal your body afterwards. And this is where Pulse Dermatology and Laser comes in.
This establishment is run by Amy Bowie, a new mom herself. So she has a special understanding of what you are going through.
Pulse offers a range of treatments post-pregnancy.
Mesotherapy / Micropen (uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries so that the technician can get better penetration of active ingredients and trick the skin into rebuilding a newer healthier version of itself)
Pregnancy Pigmentation (Cosmelan de-pigmentation program by Mesoestetics. It is very strict and precise but the results are amazing, giving patients an average reduction in pigmentation of 95%!)
Hormonal Acne (the Pulse Dermatology and Laser Medifacial which combines either a ‘No-Peel’ peel or some crystal microdermabrasion to reduce blockages and impurities with some healing and antibacterial LED light therapy. Add in some glycolic acid for cleaning out pores while promoting cell renewal and some phytic acid and you are all set on the path to fresh glowing skin.
NIR Skin Tight Laser (this is the one we are giving away)
The first point of call for postnatal abdomens is laser. The Near Infra-Red laser heats up the dermis (the under layer of the skin where collagen is produced) to cause tissue regeneration and contraction of existing collagen bands, and is used to treat loose, wrinkled skin all over the body and face. It is pain free as far as laser treatments go and gives patients absolutely no ‘down time’, allowing them to resume their treatment. It is also excellent at shrinking and smoothing stretchmarks. This treatment can be used on all skin colours safely and effectively. It is best to start treatment within 3-month post birth as it yields the best results – an average 60-90% reduction, but if it’s been a few years you can still significantly reduce and improve the areas treated.
NIR stands for Near Infa-Red. This is the type of light emitted during your skin tightening treatment. The light heats the skin and tissue immediately under the skin’s surface.
The heat produced during the treatment simulates the infiltration of fibroblast and the formation of new collagen, while also tightening the existing bundles of collagen and elastin in the skin. This both thickens and tightens the skin, strengthening the natural “scaffold” that gives our skin structure. This works not not only on current appearance but also bolsters against future aging. Healthy collagen in the dermis helps maintain the skins’ youthful resilience and texture.
