Common Beauty Concerns Mums Face

It’s no secret that our skin and body change with age, but I see this transition occurring more quickly for mothers. Going through motherhood isn’t just a lifestyle change; it is also a physical one that can take a toll on the skin and body. No matter where you are on your journey, let EPION provide address these common skin and body concerns with the necessary nourishment and care.


Whether new mums or mature ones, most mums share similar skin concerns.

Usually, clients ask about the common ‘tired mum skin’ (dull, lacklustre skin), often exacerbated by their busy lifestyle. But I also have clients that share their frustration about sagging skin and melasma. These are often brought about by the fluctuation of oestrogen levels that can take place at different stages of motherhood.

Sagging skin:

When oestrogen levels fluctuate, so does collagen in skin. Thermage CPT helps to regenerate collagen and tighten loose skin through focused radiofrequency technology. Only a single treatment is needed for a gradual and natural lift.


High oestrogen levels boost collagen production, but can also accelerate melanin synthesis, especially if your progesterone levels are also high. This often leads to melasma, frustrating discoloured splotches that often develop during pregnancy and perimenopause. Melasma can be treatment by fragmenting melanin. I like to use Sylfirm or Pico Pulse Laser as these deliver targeted radiofrequency and laser energy respectively without injuring surrounding skin.

Tip: When fading pigmentation, you can also use AHA products like our 3.1 RENEW. Formulated with glycolic acid, it gently exfoliates and brightens skin, and is also safe to use during nursing.


The body undergoes plenty of changes during pregnancy. Without proper care, some of these physical and physiological changes can continue to be visible years after, such as stretch marks. I also often have clients that battle with extra weight and weakened muscles caused by pregnancy and childbirth. Some mums may also experience diastasis recti in which abdominal muscles are separated, resulting in backaches, weakened pelvic muscles, and even urinary incontinence.

Muscle strengthening:

Is there a more effective solution to toning up instead of only exercising and eating healthier? Yes, there is.

A session of TESLA BodyFormer not only yields the equivalent of 15,000 crunches in only 30 minutes, but also helps to restore core muscles with relative ease, making this treatment highly suitable for anyone recovering from diastasis recti.

Stubborn fat:

To ease the journey of losing pregnancy weight, I often recommend CoolSculpting to target accumulated fat at the belly area. This FDA-approved fat freezing treatment can be done six months after delivery and is known to show optimal results after two months of treatment. This treatment is not advised for those who are breastfeeding.

Stretch marks:

Stretch marks affect up to 90% of mums. To improve the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite (whether newly formed or from years ago), I like to use skin resurfacing lasers like Profractional XC or the e2 Sublative. These lasers supercharge the body’s natural healing process to produce collagen and smooth skin.
