Mommy Makeover: Top Non-Surgical Treatments for Moms
Being a mom is one of the most fulfilling and wonderful experiences, but it takes a very real toll on your figure and your health as you devote your entire self to your children. If you’re looking in the mirror and no longer recognize yourself, then it’s time to devote more energy and time on YOU. This could mean getting weekly massages, spending more time at the hair salon or just getting back to old hobbies you loved before having children. It could also mean splurging for a well-deserved mommy makeover to reclaim your body! With solutions to common postpartum maladies like cellulite, belly fat, double chin and stretch marks, no mom has to look in the mirror longing to turn back the clock and regain her pre-pregnancy body.
However, a busy mom doesn’t have much time to devote to recovering from any kind of surgical procedures. That’s why we offer non-surgical cosmetic treatments for busy moms who want to get their pre-baby bodies back without ever going under the knife.

Non-Surgical Vaginal Tightening and Rejuvenation
Whether you just want your vagina to look better again, or you’re having health issues like urinary incontinence or frequent infections, you’ve likely considered a surgical procedure such as a labiaplasty to tighten everything back up. While surgery is an excellent solution for your vaginal woes, it’s no longer the only solution with Thermi-Va.
Thermi-Va is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation device that comes highly recommended by both plastic surgeons and OBGYNs as an alternative to surgical interventions. Using a wand similar to the internal ultrasound you may have had during your pregnancy, your provider is able to target both internal and external areas that can be tightened with the device’s gentle radiofrequency heating similar to skin tightening treatments mentioned above. After a few sessions, patients notice a more youthful looking labia and fewer infections while also reporting that they no longer have to fear a sneeze or a cough leading to an embarrassing “accident.”
Non-Surgical Body Contouring with CoolSculpting and Thermage
Losing the baby weight after giving birth is no easy feat, and it can take months or even years to get to a healthy, fit body after baby. Even after losing a substantial amount of weight, your body likely won’t look exactly the way it did before your pregnancy. Thankfully, you don't necessarily have to resort to surgery in order to reshape your body. Non-surgical body contouring is a way to eliminate pockets of fat that are left behind after major weight loss. Part of your mommy makeover could include non-surgical body contouring as a way to reinforce your weight loss and fitness efforts and give you the body you worked so hard to achieve.
CoolSculpting Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Our most popular body contouring treatment is CoolSculpting. A non-invasive treatment, CoolSculpting uses an applicator that, when applied to the skin, freezes the unwanted body fat just below. This freezing kills off the fat cells that are then flushed through the body’s natural processes, never to return. This is perfect for moms who still have a little left over belly fat or who want to correct their love handles, back fat, upper arms, thighs and even the double chin.
Thermage Radiofrequency Body Sculpting
Thermage is another non-surgical solution to unwanted body fat by using radio frequencies (RF) to heat the deepest layers of your skin while simultaneously cooling down the skin's surface. This helps boost collagen production, firming up your skin and smoothing out any of the lumps and bumps associated with cellulite. If you're a mom who lost a lot of the baby weight but still deals with sagging or lumpy skin left behind in places like the neck or the upper arms, Thermage can be one non-surgical body contouring option that lets you get back to work, the kids and other everyday responsibilities immediately after the procedure.
Skin Tightening Treatments That Don't Require Surgery
One of the most-requested treatments during a mommy makeover is for skin tightening. Most moms know that even if you manage to reach the weight you were pre-pregnancy, your skin doesn't always recover. Sagging, wrinkling and advanced signs of aging might not be what you want to see in the mirror this Mother's Day. You don't necessarily need to have a surgical tummy tuck or spend days in recovery just to tighten up your skin. Options like Thermage, VoluDerm and TriPollar can give you the results you want without the scalpel using radiofrequency technology to lift and tighten the skin.
Double Chin Reduction Without Liposuction
One of the things that we hear moms say is that they don’t want to be in family photos with their children because of their double chin. Don’t deprive yourself of precious memories. If you're going to treat yourself to a mommy makeover, consider trying a non-surgical solution for double chin reduction such as CoolSculpting (mentioned above) or Kybella.
CoolMini for Double Chin Reduction
CoolSculpting’s CoolMini applicator specifically targets submental fullness to freeze and eliminate unwanted double chin fat just like it would for the upper arms, thighs or belly fat.
Kybella Double Chin Shot
Kybella works differently. The very first non-surgical solution to double chin fat, Kybella is an injectable acid that melts away fat beneath the chin in a series of treatments. In 4-6 months, your jawline will be nicely contoured, and you’ll be saying, “Cheese!” again in no time!
A Real Solution for Stretch Marks and C-Section Scars?
If copious amounts of cocoa butter during your pregnancy didn’t keep the stretch marks at bay, you have probably invested a lot of time and money in over-the-counter stretch mark solutions that haven’t delivered. Thankfully, we offer several treatment options that can target, reduce and even eliminate the appearance of your stretch marks altogether, and you can be back to your everyday routine in no time.
Vbeam Laser for Stretch Marks and Surgical Scars
One way to tackle stretch marks or to lighten the appearance of your c-section scar during your mommy makeover is by trying out Vbeam, a treatment that uses a pulsed dye laser to target impurities and hyper-pigmentation. Although Vbeam can be used for a variety of skin conditions, it can be extremely effective at eliminating the appearance of red or pink stretch marks on your skin.
Fraxel Laser for Stretch Marks
Another treatment option for stretch marks is the Fraxel Dual laser, which stimulates additional collagen production so that the skin can regenerate itself. This treatment for stretch marks is also unique because it's virtually painless, with only a brief sensation of heat that feels similar to a mild sunburn. After a series of treatments with one of these tried and true technologies, you’ll see a reduction in the appearance of stretch marks and feel more confident about how you look.
Treatments for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
A mommy makeover can include cosmetic procedures to help you look and feel your best, but they can also be beneficial to your overall health. In the case of varicose veins, for instance, which typically pop up during pregnancy for many women, elimination could lead to better health and fewer risks. Varicose and spider veins can be uncomfortable or even painful, and in some cases they can be a sign of more serious problems.
Lasers and Sclerotherapy for Varicose and Spider Veins
Depending on the size of your spider or varicose veins, you can choose from two different but non-surgical treatment options in our Beverly Hills medical spa. Spider veins, which tend to be smaller and less noticeable, can be treated with a Vbeam laser to reduce redness. Another option is to try Sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a sclerosing agent into the veins in order to encourage them to shrink and fade. There is minimal, if any, downtime involved with this procedure, allowing you to get back to your life and your kids after your mommy makeover.
Options for Handling Melasma During and After Pregnancy
Often called “the mask of pregnancy,” melasma is the appearance of brown spots and pigmentation on the skin, and it often crops up on the face and neck. There are several root causes of melasma, including exposure to the sun and irritation, but the reason so many pregnant women suffer from it has to do with excess hormones during pregnancy. Many women notice that their melasma disappears after labor, but for some, it hangs around and can look unsightly. Thankfully, there are several effective treatment methods to treat melasma, the best of which are available at in our Beverly Hills medspa.
Chemical Peels for Melasma
One popular way to treat melasma is through the use of a chemical peel. After applying a chemical solution to your face, a chemical peel can remove the outermost layers of your skin and reveal a healthy, rejuvenated layer below. Depending on the severity of your melasma, you can choose between a light peel, a medium peel and a deep peel. Another treatment option for melasma is the use of fractional lasers. These lasers can target pigmentation in the skin and eliminate or reduce its appearance, helping you to feel more confident.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for Melasma
Finally, you can have your mommy makeover include an intense pulsed light IPL treatment, or photofacial, which involves using broad-spectrum light lasers to reduce hyper-pigmentation wherever it is used. Since IPL can be completed in anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, it is the perfect addition to your mommy makeover, letting you get results quickly and get back to your family faster.
