Most mothers out there would agree that pregnancy brings a whole new meaning to the concept of beauty. The immense joy of conceiving, nurturing and giving birth to a little being in an extraordinary nine-month period is a jubilant adventure like no other.
Yet, more often than not, postpartum woes are hard to overlook. After the body has transformed significantly from the strain of carrying a growing baby, new mothers may find it difficult to cope with their physical and bodily changes while adjusting to a new phase of life after childbirth.
Fortunately, advanced technology used in a variety of FDA- approved treatments are now readily available at The Retreat Clinic to address the following issues in helping you to get back in shape in no time!
This ongoing daily struggle caused by the weakening of pelvic floor muscles due to the pressure your body had to endure during childbirth can be easily improved with the life-changing technology of Emsella.
It uses high- intensity focused electromagnetic technology that effectively stimulates pelvic floor muscles with thousands of supramaximal contractions per session. This non-invasive treatment is done with you fully clothed, and improvements are noticed after just one session!
During pregnancy, the body requires more fats than usual. The presence of those extra fat pockets would push through the collagen fibre and connective tissues under the skin, resulting in the appearance of bumps and lumps. Unison, a treatment that combines Radio Frequency with Acoustic Wave technology is proven to treat causes of cellulite with zero downtime.
Depending on your suitability, another available treatment is Velashape 3, which stimulates collagen production to improve skin elasticity and overall skin texture.
SAGGY AND LOOSE SKIN
Gaining additional weight, which is mostly related to baby growth—the amniotic fluid, placenta and more, is perfectly normal. This causes the skin to expand and it may be hard for stretched skin to return to how it was before, causing the appearance of saggy and loose skin.
Non-invasive skin- tightening treatments such as Exilis helps with fat reduction plus tissue tightening, while Unison works well to treat cellulite, as well as helping to tone the body and improve skin tightness.
FACIAL SKIN PROBLEMS
The hormonal changes your body goes through during pregnancy could bring about unexpected issues including skin being more prone to blemishes. Those who barely had any skin problem before could suddenly be faced with acne and pigmentation. Dual-Laser is among the treatments to help reduce the appearance of facial scars and improve skin texture.
Those looking to tighten the skin and reduce ne lines can always turn to Exilis. Juvederm fillers, on the other hand, restore hydration and volume to the skin.
POST-PREGNANCY BELLY POOCH
You better believe that even the fit body of a gym addict can be saddled with a post pregnancy tummy. A bloated-looking belly after giving birth is especially common among new mommies. This is called Diastasis Recti, a condition where your abdominal muscles get separated as a result of carrying a baby inside.
Enter Emsculpt. It helps build muscles and burn fats almost instantaneously after four sessions to strengthen loose muscles and build up your core strength. The high- intensity focused electromagnetic energy emitted triggers supramaximal muscle contractions, akin to 20,000 sit-ups in 30 minutes for one session—a result that no human can ever achieve in such a short time!
Every individual and body is different, and we strongly recommend you to consult a certified aesthetic physician to evaluate your body and skin in order to identify the best post-partum treatment solution.
