Pregnancy is a special period in a woman’s life. Future mothers try to look well-groomed and attractive as much as other women. Smooth skin is one of the components of a flawless look. Today, more and more women choose shugaring to remove unwanted hairs. But is it possible to resort to this method of depilation during pregnancy?
When sugar depilation is contraindicated
During the removal of hair with sugar paste, the beautician should monitor the condition of the woman and stop the procedure when an unexpected reaction occurs. The future mother herself should also analyze her feelings. To refuse to remove hairs should be when:
- pulling pain in the lower back,
- feeling uterine tension,
- pain and discomfort in the abdomen.
Absolute contraindications for shugaring are any complications of pregnancy. Sugar depilation is prohibited if there is:
- risk of miscarriage,
- various pathologies in the development of the fetus,
- miscarriage in history
- increased uterine tone,
- skin diseases, as well as various rashes and neoplasms (warts, papillomas, etc.),
- endocrine and cardiovascular disorders.
If a pregnant woman doubts whether she can make a shugaring, it is best to consult with your doctor.
What terms can you remove hair with sugar
Trying to look attractive during pregnancy, many people resort to depilation. Cosmetic manipulations improve mood, and positive emotions have a beneficial effect on mother and child. In order not to harm the baby, you need to abandon the shugaring in the first trimester. Starting from the second trimester, you can do sugar depilation without fear.
Changes in the hormonal level in the second trimester helps to reduce pain, so this period is considered ideal for sugar depilation.
Starting from the second trimester of pregnancy, the expectant mother can do sugar depilation, and changing her hormonal background will help reduce pain during the procedure.
For which zones is suitable shugaring
Due to the increase in the size of the abdomen during pregnancy, the removal of unwanted vegetation on the legs or in the bikini area becomes problematic. Therefore, many future mothers resort to salon procedures, such as shugaring. It is better to consult a doctor about the acceptability of the use of sugar paste for the bikini zone. In the normal course of pregnancy, it is safe to decide on the depilation of the legs, arms, underarms, face or intimate area. If the expectant mother came to sugar removal of hair for the first time, then an experienced and responsible master will refuse to conduct the procedure.
Laser, enzyme, photo and electrolysis are absolutely contraindicated for expectant mothers. Other techniques may be acceptable subject to certain conditions.
If before a pregnancy, a woman was doing shugaring a bikini regularly, then you can perform this procedure while carrying a child.
Good day! In the first months of pregnancy I do not recommend, even for those who used shugaring before pregnancy and have a high pain threshold. If the client insists and assures that everything will be fine with her, then under her full responsibility and, of course, under my control. It all depends on the individual response to pain irritation. A reaction on the part of the body (increased uterine tone, for example) may appear a couple of hours after the procedure.
I did shugaring at 38 weeks. She did not give birth to the child! Nothing wrong with that. But the beauty was on the operating table. And in pathology, when she was not lying, she had to shave. To be honest, it seems to me the norms themselves and not to shave when the tum is already big.
I generally do myself shugaring deep yet. When it is difficult to bend, I will go to the master. I can not otherwise. I do not hurt the habit already. But if you feel discomfort, and the pain threshold is highly sensitive - it is better to refuse)
In the absence of contraindications, shugaring during pregnancy is one of the safest and most effective procedures for removing unnecessary vegetation. Experimenting expectant mothers is not worth it, but if sugar depilation was carried out regularly, going to the beautician after 12 weeks would not hurt. The opinion of many experts agrees: positive emotions after visiting the salon will have a beneficial effect on both the mother and the baby.
Is it possible to make shugaring during pregnancy
Pregnant women in this case are divided into two categories: those who have never done a shugaring, and those for whom this procedure is customary. There are different rules for these categories.
Shugaring is one of the safest ways to remove hair, so pregnant women, of course, can use it. This procedure has many advantages:
- naturalness During the procedure only environmentally friendly natural ingredients are used.
- hypoallergenic. The possibility of allergic reactions is practically reduced to zero,
- lack of trauma Cuts or burns are completely excluded.
- no ingrown hair. If ingrown hairs can appear from a normal razor, then shugaring reduces this possibility
- not strong pain. Similar procedures, such as wax or epilator, deliver much more pain.
We should also mention the deep bikini shugaring. In this area, it is important to remove hair in a timely manner, because it greatly facilitates hygiene. A deep bikini should always be clean during pregnancy - this is especially important in the second half of the period of carrying a child.
Contraindications for shugaring
It is desirable to refuse shugaring in the first trimester. No matter how benign it is, certain painful sensations are still present, and blood rushes to the treated areas. Shugaring of the intimate zone can cause miscarriage, so it is better to hold it in the second half of pregnancy, and in the first it is better to use a regular razor.
You also can not do shugaring, if you have not previously performed this procedure. The fact is that each time it becomes more and more comfortable, pain decreases. If you do the procedure for the first time, perhaps the pain will be very strong, and you will be nervous, which may adversely affect the condition of the fetus. In addition, the absolute contraindications include:
- threatened miscarriage
- increased uterine tone,
- pregnancy complications,
- pathology of the formation of the fetus at the developmental stage,
- any chronic pathologies,
- dermatological diseases,
- the occurrence of allergies.
If you still decide to shugaring contrary to contraindications, it is advisable to carry out a complete examination of the body and consult with your doctor. This applies particularly to the procedure in the intimate area. The procedure promotes blood flow in the uterus, which can lead to miscarriage in the early stages.
During shugaring it is necessary to carefully monitor the state of health and to stop the procedure if the slightest indisposition is present. It is advisable to choose a master who has already had hair removal experience for pregnant women and knows how to act in unpredictable situations.
What are the prohibitions based on
Sometimes shugaring is added to the list of procedures that should be excluded during pregnancy because of the following points:
- shugaring leads to a painful symptom, however slight,
- if improperly performed, there is a risk of infection in the body,
- the pregnant woman's body can react to the procedure outside the box. For example, the skin may become stained.
This can be avoided if the woman realizes what responsibility lies with her. You have to understand how painful and unpleasant it is for you to shugaring, how nervous you will be at that moment.
It is important to choose the right salon and master, in order for sure to prevent infection. Also, before the procedure, you can consult with your doctor - if he gives permission, then there is nothing to fear.
Advantages and disadvantages of shugaring during pregnancy
For comparison, we present the advantages and disadvantages of shugaring during pregnancy. Let's start with the advantages:
- Shugaring does not use aggressive chemical ingredients, as with other methods of removing unwanted hair. Allergy is completely excluded, as is the negative effect on the fetus,
- shugaring facilitates hygiene, which is very important during pregnancy,
- The procedure eliminates the risk of burns and cuts, as it does not use sharp and hot objects.
Shugaring has negative sides, among which are:
- the ability to provoke an increase in the tone of the uterus due to pain,
- in the early stages of the procedure can cause miscarriage,
- Rooting out hairs is a microtrauma. With the wrong care, an infection can get there.
Evaluate how important the advantages and disadvantages are to you, and only then decide on the appropriateness of the procedure.
Early and late shugaring
In the early stages, shugaring is prohibited. An exception may be the case if a woman has repeatedly done this procedure before, she tolerates it perfectly and is not nervous at all during hair removal. But even then, before the procedure, you should consult with your doctor and undergo a complete examination of the body.
In the later periods, shugaring is not only allowed, but also necessary - to maintain hygiene. However, if the procedure is too painful for you, you are nervous or your underbelly is very tense during the removal of hairs, it is better to turn to a razor - at least before giving birth.
Officially, there are no cases when a woman lost a child due to shugaring, but the procedure can provoke irreversible processes, this should also be taken into account.
2-3 weeks before giving birth, shugaring should be abandoned anyway. A rush of blood to the uterus can trigger preterm labor.
Technique for shugaring during pregnancy
It is important that the master you are referring to understands what to do and how. Make sure all his actions are correct. At the stage of purification it is prohibited to use cosmetics with oils in the composition and with the cooling effect, as well as scrubs with green tea or grapes with fragrances and additives. But the usual mycelian lotion or gel based on chamomile decoction will be very useful. Maximum attention should be paid to the naturalness of the applied cosmetics.
After the procedure, you also need to use cleansers. The usual cosmetic water with natural additives without flavors, as well as soothing cream with aloe vera, is perfect. Ensure that there are no essential oils in the products - they have a strong aroma and can also cause allergies.
The paste should be natural, for delicate care, with a mild effect. She copes with unwanted hairs as well as usual.
With regard to technology, the master should carry out the procedure smoothly, without abrupt disruptions. The hairs that remain should be removed dotted. In this case, a woman should not sit - it is better if she lies on her back or on her side - in a pose in which she can relax as much as possible. It is desirable that the pre-master selects the paste specifically for the pregnant client.
On the skin can not push. It should be stretched very gently and carefully. It is better if the woman herself does it under the master's control. In the last stages of pregnancy, there is no point in pulling at all, because the skin is already stretched.
Shugaring or abandoning it during pregnancy is a private matter for every woman. It is advisable to follow the above recommendations and follow the instructions of the doctor leading the pregnancy - so you will surely protect the child and yourself from possible health problems.
