Mommy’s-to-be need skincare love too!
Here at GLOW beauty bar, we’ve made sure to curate several treatments and add-ons that are pregnancy-safe so moms-to-be can keep their skin in check too! One important aspect to remember is that, during pregnancy, many products and treatments are restricted, making it harder for moms to maintain healthy glowing skin. No more retinol, acids, certain botanicals, and so on!
Well, not at GLOW!
Before we get into our awesome treatments/add-on services that we offer for pregnant clients, here’s a little list of ingredients that are totally safe to use! (Make sure to read ingredient lists entirely before purchasing any products and check with your physician first!)
AHA’s below 10% (Lactic (milk), Azelaic, Mandelic (almonds/vegan)
Enzymes & Fruit Extracts
Now let’s take a look at what to Avoid:
Retinoid acid, Retin A, Retinol. Retinyl Palmitate
Benzoyl peroxide above 2.5 %
Salicylic Acid over 2 %
Rosemary, tea tree, clary sage, clove, fennel
AHA’s above 10%
Treatment modalities (high-frequency, micro-current)
Did that just make your skincare shopping haul a little easier? You're welcome!
Now let’s take a look at all of GLOW’s pregnancy-safe treatments and add-ons.
Our facials are customizable, we cater products that are suitable for your skin type and skin concerns. This treatment is perfect for women who are expecting, your aesthetician is able to choose safe ingredients that can add to that pregnancy GLOW! You get the complete full treatment of multiple cleanses, masking, massage, extractions, and more.
#2 Dermaplaning Facial
Let’s say goodbye to unwanted dry skin and peach fuzz! This treatment is a step up from our regular facial and it’s only by adding dermaplaning. Dermaplaning uses a surgical blade at 45-degree angle to remove dead skin and unwanted peach fuzz. This treatment is hands down a winner when it comes to smoother, refreshed, and glowier skin.
#3 Oxy Facial
Looking for plumped refreshed skin? Is your skin feel dehydrated and dull? Oxy facial is a three-step treatment that helps to promote healthier-looking skin, it’s filled with antioxidants, oxygenating properties, and vitamin B. The first step of the oxy facial feels like a chemical peel without the peeling, after that we massage amazing antioxidants into the skin! The best part? There’s no downtime!
#4 Stimu Facial
Let’s get stimulated! This treatment is all about stimulating the face with a ’stimu boost’ - which allows for blood flow to rush towards the skin, supplying nutrients and activity. The stimu boost has amazing powerful ingredients such as niacinamide, willow bark, witch hazel, and Capsaicin. This treatment helps to tighten, brighten, assist in blood circulation and minimize pores! Every solution in one treatment!
** Please note that this treatment will cause stimulation of heat **
This treatment is all about detoxing congested skin. What’s also great about this treatment is that everything is done twice! - manually and with our hydrafacial machine. With the Hydrafacial machine it cleanses, exfoliates, replenishes, extracts, and infuses! After the treatment, your aesthetician will show each client their “gunkie” jar filled with everything that has been sucked out of their skin! It can be bad…but it feels so good!
#6 Jet Peel Facial
Jet Peel treatments are like a power washing for the face! The jet peel uses a powerful jet stream to detox, exfoliate and infuse the skin. This treatment first starts with lymphatic drainage using hydrating ‘jet water’, this allows for any toxins in the face to be drained (puffy faces be gone!) after that, your aesthetician will gently exfoliate any dead skin away! Lastly, two serums will be pushed deep into the layers of the skin, to help with any skin concerns our clients may have. The results are absolutely amazing and again… no downtime!
Look at that! Six amazing treatments and were not even done!
At Glow we also offer add-ons to take your treatment to the next step! Here are a few that are completely safe while expecting:
24k Gold Mask upgrade
Lip & Eye Perk
LED Light Therapy
Not only do we offer pregnancy safe treatments, add ons, and products, we also are able to modify the service for your comfort - wether that's an elevated bed, more pillows, or breaks during your treatment.
