The short answer is:
Unfortunately, no, we do not recommended to have Hydrafacial treatments while pregnant.
The longer answer is:
One of the key treatment steps during a Hydrafacial is an exfoliating step using a type of beta-hydroxy-acid called “salicylic acid” (the main ingredient of aspirin). In high doses, oral aspirin has been shown to cause problems for developing babies. There has been some debate on whether or not very small doses of salicylic acid (such as what you might get when you have topical salicylic acid) might actually be OK. The answer is we don’t know how small a dose needs to be to be safe and we also don’t know how much salicylic acid is absorbed through a topical treatment. Also due to the hydrafacial’s vortex tip (which is so good at forcing nutrients into the skin) its likely that a lot of the salicylic acid is probably absorbed during a Hydrafacial.
There are some clinics overseas that promote Hydrafacials as a great treatment to have when pregnant. And a couple of well known bloggers in Australia have reported that they have had Hydrafacials while pregnant. Our decision, which is backed up by the medical insurance companies, is that it is so important to protect developing babies that if there is any doubt, then its best to avoid anything that is even slightly risky. So for that reason we don’t allow our pregnant clients to have Hydrafacials at our clinic.
