Can I get a facial while pregnant? This is one of the most important question we often get asked here at The Salon Professional Academy with our Dermalogica spa treatments, and the answer is yes! You can safely indulge in a Dermalogica basic facial here at The Salon Professional Academy in San Jose. If your skin care therapist feels your skin is resilient enough to handle the Deramalogica basic facial, they may also include extractions to help purify your skin even more. Your skincare therapist might even find that you skin is hyper sensitive during your pregnancy and will recommend the Dermalogica Ultra Calming facial.

There will be some service types and products that you do need to avoid during your pregnancy. A major skin care ingredient you need to stop using and avoid during this time is retinoids.  Retinoid’s are a type of vitamin A. They are important in a skin care regime to help with cell turn over and prevent collagen loss, but retinoids can be harmful to your unborn child. A service that must be avoided is chemical peels. Chemical peels can include the following chemicals: lactic acid, glycolic, salicylic.  Glycolic and salicylic have not been proven to be safe during pregnancy, but lactic acid peels have. Lactic acids peels are safe during pregnancy, because they are gentle on the skin and lactic acid is found natural in the body.

We would love for all moms to be, to come relax and enjoy a Dermalogica facial at our student spa, but before you book your appointment make sure to consult with your Doctor before any treatment. We look forward to pampering you in our spa.
