What is a Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover?
Non-surgical Mommy Makeover in Dubai refers to the procedures that are minimally invasive and help restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy physique.
In the early days of the Mommy Makeover procedure, cosmetic specialists used to prefer surgical procedures for rejuvenation and revitalization of a woman’s body appearance. In the procedure, they would cut saggy skin or internal fats from the abdomen and also provide the due rejuvenation treatment for the breasts.
However, with time, non-surgical mommy makeover options have gained popularity as they offer less downtime, reduced risks, and often a lower cost compared to surgery. Here are the non-surgical procedures that can be considered a part of a Mommy Makeover:
Non-surgical Mommy Makeover Procedures:
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction technique that uses cooling to target and freeze fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. The common areas where CoolSculpting is carried out include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and under the chin. It is a multiple-session treatment with each session lasting anywhere between 35-60 minutes.
Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments
RF treatments work by tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite. In the procedure, RF devices, such as Thermage and Exilis, heat the deeper layers of the skin, which leads to robust collagen production in the skin.
The session can last between 30-90 minutes, depending on the treatment area and the device used in the treatment.
Treatment areas: Face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs.
Laser Skin Tightening
In laser skin tightening treatment, the laser skin specialist uses a specially designed device like Ultherapy to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing it to contract and tighten. This procedure can last between 30-90 minutes, depending on the device and treatment area.
Devices like Ultherapy use ultrasound or laser energy to tighten and lift the skin.
Treatment areas: Face, neck, abdomen.
Dermal fillers can be used to restore lost volume in the face, hands, and other areas of the body. In the procedure, practitioners inject dermal fillers beneath the skin to add volume or fill wrinkles. Commonly used fillers include hyaluronic acid (like Juvederm or Restylane) or calcium hydroxylapatite (like Radiesse). Each session can last anywhere between 15-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Note: Some people might experience potential allergic reactions to certain fillers, therefore it is necessary to discuss it with your healthcare provider.
Non-surgical Breast Lift
Procedures like ThermiBreast use radiofrequency to lift and tighten the breast tissue without surgery. The whole session lasts for 30-90 minutes, depending on the extent of the treatment.
Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion
Chemical peels use an acid solution to remove damaged outer layers of skin, while microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to exfoliate. Both of these treatments are considered skin resurfacing treatments and aim to rejuvenate skin and restore youthful appearance.
Treatment areas: Face, neck, hands, some areas with stretch marks.
Duration: 30-60 minutes, depending on the type and depth of the treatment.
Non-surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
After childbirth and with aging, women might experience changes in the vaginal area, which can include laxity, dryness, or diminished sexual satisfaction. Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation aims to address these concerns without the need for invasive surgery. However, its effectiveness and safety is still a topic of debate among practitioners.
The pre-procedure care for Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover usually includes:
- Consult with a certified practitioner to discuss your specific needs and determine the most suitable treatments.
- About one week before procedures, refrain from taking aspirin, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding.
- Abstain from alcohol and smoking for at least 24-48 hours prior to treatments as it can increase bruising.
- Arrive for your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin.
- Drink plenty of water leading up to the procedure. Hydrated skin often responds better to treatments.
- Inform your practitioner of any medications or supplements you’re currently taking.
- Sunburned or tanned skin can affect specific treatments, such as lasers. Stay out of the sun or use a high-SPF sunscreen for at least a week before your treatment.
Always follow the specific aftercare instructions given by your practitioner for each treatment. Apart from this, consider the following:
- After treatments like laser, keep the treated area out of direct sunlight and use SPF sunscreen.
- Use a cold compress to reduce swelling or bruising if necessary.
- For the first 24-48 hours, avoid heavy workouts or any activity that might cause excessive sweating or strain on the treated areas.
- Keep your skin hydrated, but only use recommended products on the treated areas.
- Refrain from drinking alcohol or taking blood thinning medications for a few days post-treatment to reduce the risk of bruising.
- Schedule follow-up appointments as advised by your practitioner to assess the results and discuss any concerns.
- Wait for the recommended amount of time before getting touch-ups or additional treatments.
- If you experience any unexpected side effects, such as excessive swelling, pain, or any signs of infection, contact your practitioner immediately.
- Remember that the longevity of results from non-surgical treatments can often be maintained with good skincare practices, sun protection, and healthy lifestyle habits.
Note: We emphasize that pre-procedure care and aftercare can be different for each procedure and that the mentioned care is general advice. For more information, you need to consult with your healthcare provider.
