Safety during pregnancy & breastfeeding

During pregnancy or when breastfeeding, a woman’s body goes through many hormonal changes and this can mean the skin may have increased sensitivity, suffer from breakouts or changes in pigmentation. At Avenue Advanced Skin Care we only recommend gentle treatments during this time – and to maintain the health of the skin at a superficial level. There are certain ingredients in home care products which are best avoided until after lactation is completed.
