How To Treat Post-Pregnancy Skin Discoloration and Pigmentation

Skin discoloration is a common consequence of hormonal changes that may come from pregnancy. It can come in the form of hyperpigmentation, freckles, brown spots, age spots and more. At Dr. Schwarcz’s practice, we utilize laser treatment to treat such skin discoloration for our patients. Mothers after delivery and labor often find this treatment helpful in regaining their pre-pregnancy cosmetic skin tone without the discoloration and freckles.

Uneven skin tone and pigmentation can be treated by the intense pulsed light laser which targets and heats up the discolored cells to decrease their pigment. Contact our practice today to learn more about your options. You can have the skin you used to love prior to pregnancy and hormonal changes. The laser treatment is simple, painless and easy.

We do not recommend undergoing this treatment during pregnancy for obvious safety reasons. It would be better to wait until after birth and delivery is complete to undergo cosmetic laser treatment.
