MSNBC consults with top experts about getting mamas into pre-baby shape.

MSNBC consults with top experts, including Dr. Joel Schlessinger, to help get “laser hot mamas zapped into prebaby shape.”

Although the MSNBC article “Laser hot mamas zapped into prebaby shape: Plastic surgeons offering makeovers for yummy mummies” was published in 2007, it’s still relevant today. After all, new mothers care just as much about this topic now as they did then.

The reality is that, after a woman gives birth, she can have the following problems, as noted in the MSNBC article:

  • Stretch marks
  • Loose belly skin
  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Melisma (brown facial pigmentation)
  • Milked-out, deflated breasts

In the article, Dr. Joel Schlessinger points out the effects of hormones on a woman and her body throughout her pregnancy – and afterwards, too.

This can be especially true with older women – and, as CBS and many other news sources reported in 2009, the average age of first-time mothers is significantly increasing. In fact, according to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, the proportion of first-time births to women aged 35 and older has increased nearly eight times since 1970.

“In my practice,” Dr. Joel Schlessinger said in the article, “we’ve seen a 50 percent increase in the number of women seeking postpartum treatments in the last five years. And my data show that the largest subset is women in their 30s, when pregnancy takes more of a toll.”

The treatment discussed in the MSNBC article is Fraxel laser treatment, something that the doctor also uses to beautify facial skin. 

Fraxel Treatment - Before and After
Clinical studies about Fraxel are published at the manufacturer’s site, from peer reviewed articles on Fraxel to trade publications and information found in the Fraxel Insider newsletter. At the site, Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses Fraxel as a method to achieve beautiful skin. One of the huge benefits of Fraxel in beautifying facial skin is that only one session is typically needed. The higher the intensity, the longer the recovery – but results will be even more impressive.
