Pregnancy’s Toll On Your Skin

Not only does pregnancy transform a woman’s body throughout nine months, but its affect on her skin can remain even after the baby is born. Probably one of the only positive skin changes of pregnancy is the frequently noted “pregnancy glow.” This is actually a very real observation. A pregnant woman’s face is brighter and shinier since there is more blood circulating and hormones cause oil glands to work in overdrive during pregnancy.

But not all skin changes are welcome during pregnancy, and some are not easy to get rid of after delivery. Pregnant women commonly complain of acne breakouts as their hormones surge. They develop itchy skin on their abdomen and stretch marks as their belly grows. In addition, up to %50 of moms-to-be will experience melasma, or “the mask of pregnancy” which is dark splotchy spots on the face caused again by a surge in hormones. Most of these skin changes will be relieved and dissipate once the baby is born.
Unfortunately, pregnancy can also cause spider veins. This can be a stubborn side effect of pregnancy. Spider veins, also known as spider nevi, are minute reddish tiny blood vessels that branch outward. These spider veins are also caused by the increase in blood circulation. Many women seek professional treatment for their spider veins if they do not improve after delivery. Olansky Dermatology Associates proudly offers spider vein treatment through sclerotherapy. This effective injection treatment requires several office visits but is highly successful in shrinking or eliminating unwanted spider veins.
If you have skin changes that are bothersome or have lingered after your pregnancy, seek treatment from a board certified dermatologist. Olansky Dermatology Associates offers treatment for acne, scars, melasma and spider veins in Atlanta.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I have had excellent experience at Olansky Dermatology. Dr Burger is meticulous and thorough and has a most pleasant and calm manner. I have every confidence in her and this office.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
