Safe Acne Treatments During Pregnancy

Safe Acne Treatments During Pregnancy

Posted in Adult Acne by . | Leave a Comment
During pregnancy, you have enough on your mind without worrying about how to stop your acne from flaring!  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Some medications and acne treatments are actually clinically proven to be safe during pregnancy.  We are cautious when treating our pregnant patients, often waiting to begin treatment with prescriptions until after the 1st trimester of pregnancy is completed.  However, there are great options for acne treatment during pregnancy that all women should be aware of." Safe Acne Treatments During Pregnancy:
  • Finacea: Finacea (made of azeleic acid, which is derived from wheat) is a pregnancy category B medication.  Pregnancy category B means that no studies in animals or humans have shown a risk to a developing fetus.
  • Isolaz laser: The Isolaz laser is an in-office treatment that is safe during pregnancy.  The Isolaz acne treatment uses a broad-spectrum light to kill the p. acnes bacteria that causes acne and uses a gentle vacuum to clean out acne-causing debris from the pores.
  • Medical extractions: Medical extractions, when performed by a licensed aesthetician, are safe during pregnancy.  An aesthetician will steam your skin and gentle clean out the clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads that have developed.
  • Red & Blue LED light: LED light is anti-inflammatory and helped to reduce the redness from acne lesions.
  • Clarisonic brush: The Clarisonic cleansing brush can be used at home to keep the pores clean.  Apply a bit of gentle cleanser to the brush and use it to clean the skin on your face once daily.
