Your Guide To The Best Pregnancy-Safe Skin Treatments
We love pampering our pregnant mamas here at Blanc!
With hormones running high and increased blood flow in the body during pregnancy, many women experience issues like acne, broken capillaries, spider veins and pigmentation, all of which can make a person feel a little uncomfortable in their skin. That’s why we feel it’s more important than ever to ensure our mums-to-be are relaxed, rested and taken care of during this time.
As many new mums will quickly find out, some of their favourite treatments may be off the table for a while until they’ve given birth or finished breastfeeding. Popular beauty treatments such as IPL, PRP and Nano Fractional are considered unsuitable during pregnancy, simply because no safety testing has been undertaken for ethical reasons.
Here at Blanc, your safety remains our ultimate priority, which is why we always err on the side of caution with our clients. If you’re in need of some TLC during your pregnancy journey, take a look at some of our favourite treatments for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers below!

Lactic Acid Peels are a gentle type of chemical peel made from AHA (alpha hydroxy acids). As this peel is derived from milk, it is very mild of the skin and is even suitable for sensitive skin types. It will lightly exfoliate the skin to reveal a fresh, beautiful skin texture (perfect for enhancing that pregnancy glow!).
Lactic acid also has brightening properties that will help to even the skin tone, and reduce blemishes and sun damage.

Omnilux Light Therapy
LED therapy is a non-invasive treatment that repairs and rejuvenates the skin using the power of light. Depending on the frequency used, this therapy triggers cell healing, encourages blood flow, oxygenates and detoxifies tissues, improves skin tone, and stimulates the deeper layers of the skin for softening of fine lines.PRICE
(Course of 6) $420

For those wanting a more intensive and transformative skin rejuvenating treatment during pregnancy, you’re in luck! Skin Needling with our Dermapen can safely be used on pregnant or breastfeeding women.
This treatment induces collagen and elastin production by creating tiny wounds in the skin with micro-needles, triggering the skin to begin its natural healing process.
It’s suitable for a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin texture
- Large pores
There is no other modality that delivers so much, so safely with no heat and minimal downtime!
Face $330 (single) or $800 (course of 3)

Hands $250 (single) or $600 (course of 3)
Most of the skincare products we stock at Blanc are safe during pregnancy, with the exception of retinoids. These products increase cellular turnover and are great for anti-ageing.
Luckily, we have an amazing plant-based alternative for our pregnant clients!
Bakuchiol Peptides is the ultimate plant-based alternative for vitamin A and retinoids which will help to promote a more youthful, glowing, even complexion throughout your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey.
