Acne scar treatment for pregnant women
[2011-05-28 20:41:50 - Dee]: Hello,
I am interested in acne scar removal, but I recently learned that I am pregnant. Are there any risks to having any of these procedures done while pregnant?

Microdermabrasion and glycolic acid peels are allowed during pregnancy. They carry no to minimal risk. TCA peels and laser treatments are elective procedures that carry some risks, and therefore are not performed during pregnancy. Filler injections are also not usually carried out during pregnancy.
