Always avoid elective cosmetic treatment during pregnancy

Although there is no known deleterious effect of radiofrequency energy when delivered by Pelleve to a pregnant mother's fetus, it is always recommended that during pregnancy, no chances are taken for a benign, cosmetic concern with elective cosmetic treatments.

Great question!  It is best to avoid all cosmetic treatments during the time of pregnancy to avoid any complications.  I would discuss this with your OB doctor for the best advice.  Good Luck!
