Yes, it is absolutely safe to get a facial done while you are pregnant. However, since your skin would be more sensitive when you would be pregnant, you should pay an extra attention towards the pulling and tugging action on your skin. Ask the facialist to go slow and easy. A standard facial would be fine for you. Steaming your face and wrapping your face in a hot towel are also very safe for you and your baby.

 

Chemical peels and topical retinoids should be avoided however, to be on the safe side. While you are the salon, make sure to let the person doing your facial know that you are pregnant so that they would be able to make some modifications in your case. In case you have any apprehensions regarding your case, it is always recommended to check in with your doctor.
