There are also prescription topicals, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory products that are safe to use during pregnancy. Dr. Hooper and Dr. Jackson will determine which treatment options will best treat your concern.

Procedures we offer for acne during pregnancy include:


Melasma, which is most common in women and affects about 45 million people worldwide,appears as irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose. Like most other pigmented lesions, Melasma is not dangerous, but it can be a self-confidence crusher, prompting many women to hide behind a mask of make-up. Melasma is most common during hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy, oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. Based on the severity and cause of the pigmentation problem, we offer different strengths of hydroquinone and retinol containing bleaching cream. We also offer chemical peels and laser treatments that specifically target Melasma.
