When to start again your body treatments after pregnancy?

27 January 2021

You don’t learn anything by telling you that pregnancy leaves marks on women’s bodies.

Marks that we see and others that we don’t see. Marks that we like and others that we don’t like so much. Marks that we accept and others that bother us.

It depends, because every woman & every body is different.

But still, some problems are quite common among pregnant women, including water retention, cellulite & stretch marks.

The way each woman sees these issues and chooses whether or not to treat them is unique to her. Each woman appropriates her body as she feels like it. This belongs to her!

For those who wish to do body treatments, the question of “when” often comes up. So it seems quite relevant to answer it.

At-home care

From the point of view of products & beauty tools to treat these common problems from home, there are no inconveniences in using them after delivery. Indeed, the roulette, the body suction cups, the matcha firming balm, the nourishing silky butter & the dermaroller – which can also be used during pregnancy – can therefore continue to be used after delivery. The natural products all contain the percentage of essential oil recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

The only contraindication: you should not use beauty tools on your belly until you have the authorization of your doctor.

Pretty simple, isn’t it?!

In-clinic care

But from the point of view of in-clinic body treatments, when can they be started again after a pregnancy?

The answer: it depends.

And it depends on what, you may ask!

  • If the delivery was vaginal or caesarean;
  • If there were complications before, during or after the delivery;
  • What you want to treat (cellulite, water retention, weight loss, firming, stretch marks) & where;
  • If your body is ready to receive treatments;
  • If you want to do it, for you.

In any case, you should still give your body time to recover. It took it nine months to conceive this magnificent human. That’s quite something! That’s why it’s important not to skip any steps.

So, how do you get your answer in the end?

You simply need to get your doctor’s OK to restart the body treatments. To give you an idea, this OK usually coincides with the return to training or physical effort.
