Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life and changes within the body are normal. However, pregnancy also brings about many external changes that you might not like or feel comfortable about. That is understandable. One of these changes is the outbreak of skin acne, which is one of the oldest, most common and most problematic skin conditions. At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we provide effective skin-tightening treatments and acne treatments during pregnancy that are safe for you and your unborn baby. We help you to feel great about your skin during and after your pregnancy.
Acne occurs when hormones go into overdrive, causing the overproduction of sebum (oil). Keeping your face and hands clean, eating healthy, nutritious foods, staying away from sugar can help keep down acne. However, if scarring does occur, help is not far away.
