Learn more about the services we recommend to address common postpartum issues including hormonal changes, baby weight, sexual health, and skin conditions. 

Hormonal Imbalances 

Many women suffer from hormonal imbalances and postpartum depression, or “baby blues,” after giving birth. According to our provider, Crystal Dixon FNP, this is due to hormone levels dropping quickly after birth, which can take up to 6 months to re-regulate, and even longer if you are breastfeeding. 

Many women also continue to gain weight post birth and while breastfeeding, or have difficulty losing the baby weight. As researched by Crystal, this is due to a number of hormonal factors including: 

  • The stress of motherhood causing alterations of the stress hormone, cortisol, leading to weight gain and cravings
  • Eating an unhealthy diet creating an unhealthy gut, which disrupts hormone production
  • Disruptions of stress hormones leading to disruption of thyroid hormones and sex hormones, furthering exacerbating the hormone imbalance.

Hormones work together and when one gets disrupted, it immediately affects the others. Crystal describes weight and overall health like a puzzle with multiple pieces, and the more pieces you address, the better the outcome. All of these factors can affect energy, mood and ultimately lead to weight gain and poor health, but luckily there are medical solutions to treat these postpartum imbalances.

Hormone Therapy 

Here at AquaVitae, our medical professionals are able to determine which hormone levels are low after a thorough evaluation and lab tests. We then employ Bioidentical Hormone Therapy to use natural hormones — ones that are identical to those found in your body, to help regulate and balance hormones leaving you feeling restored and rejuvenated. 

Baby Weight 

Trouble with losing baby weight and postpartum weight gain is a common struggle for many mothers. Crystal explains that this can also be due to many factors, in addition to hormonal imbalances, including:

  • Changing eating habits
  • Consuming convenient/processed/fast foods due to lack of time
  • Lack of exercise due to lack of energy or time
  • Overeating due to stress and cravings
  • Skipping meals all together, which can wreak havoc on metabolism and blood sugar levels 

Luckily, a number of solutions are available to help you lose the weight and feel like yourself again based on your specific needs.  

Phentermine Weight Loss

Have you been struggling to lose the baby weight due to constant thoughts of food and eating? Phentermine, the most widely prescribed weight loss medication in the U.S., can be used to support your individual weight loss goals. Benefits include curbed cravings and suppressed appetite, in addition to helping you feel full longer. 

The fast acting diet plan works in the first weeks and continues months after starting treatment when combined with the right diet and exercise, advised by our medical staff. 

SculpSure

Are you struggling with stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles since giving birth? Do these areas seem resistant to diet and exercise? SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of fat in these stubborn areas. The system works by delivering laser light through the skin to heat up and destroy fat cells, while simultaneously cooling the skin. The treatment is pain-free and patients generally only feel a tingling sensation of warmth. No downtime is needed so you can get back to work or home to your kids immediately after treatment. 

Female Sexual Health 

After childbirth and the natural changes that come with getting older, the vaginal wall may be less responsive, making sex less satisfying and leading to loss of bladder control. Learn more about the procedure that increases orgasm function and reduces urinary incontinence. 

O-Shot 

The O-shot can help restore function lost to postpartum changes by using growth factors in the platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate the vagina. These growth factors in the PRP activate local stem cells, which in turn stimulate and rejuvenate the clitoris, providing vaginal lubrication and repairing the vaginal wall. The O-shot has also been demonstrated to be 90% effective for urinary stress incontinence. 

Benefits of the O-shot include more frequent and longer orgasms, increased natural lubrication and sexual desire, alleviated bladder leakage, and more! The minimally-invasive procedure takes 45-60 minutes and there is no downtime. 

Skin Conditions 

In addition to the rest of your body, your skin also goes through postpartum changes due to hormones, stress, sleep deprivation, among other causes. Learn more about how skin treatments at Aqua Vitae can help restore your pregnancy glow!

IPL Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Have you noticed that your glowing skin has been replaced with pigmentation spots, red splotches, textured skin, and broken capillaries? Or, maybe pregnancy has left you with spider veins and stretch marks? IPL skin rejuvenation is a procedure designed to produce a clear and healthy complexion using intense light pulsed technology. It can be used anywhere on the body to treat your specific health concern and is a quick in-office procedure with almost zero needs for recovery. 

Botox

Because of stress, lack of sleep, and aging causing your facial muscles to contract, wrinkles and fine lines can appear after giving birth. Botox injections are able to safely and effectively combat this by interrupting the nerve impulses that caused these unwanted wrinkles. By injecting doses into any areas of concern, Botox can reduce the appearance of these fine lines on the forehead, in between the eyes, crow’s feet, etc. It is a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime, and can easily fit into your busy schedule!

SkinPen Microneedling 

Many women experience postpartum hormonal acne and the stubborn scars it can leave behind. SkinPen Microneedling is an FDA approved non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance of acne scars. It works by creating thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The SkinPen rejuvenates your skin so you can be your most confident self!

Create and maintain healthy skin using one or more of these comprehensive solutions. Whether you struggle with sun damage, hyperpigmentation, or aging, ZO has a medical-grade solution for you.
