Although the degree and amount of penetration is not deep enough to affect the fetus, I recommend that you stop further treatments during pregnancy.

Thank you for your question. Unlikely any damage done, but the safest thing to do is no laser treatments of RF/IF treatments. The depth of penetration of it is less than 1.5 inches so you should be safe. I hope this helps.

Velashape treatments and affect on pregnancy

The velashape treatments should not affect the outcome of your pregnancy or hurt the baby.  However it would probably be best to delay any further velashape treatments until after your delivery.  Best wishes.

Do not worry, I'm confident two treatments caused no harm.  However, I would postpone the rest of the series until after you deliver.  With the changes and weight gain of pregnancy, I doubt you will get a good result.  Afterwards, what a treat it will be to help you get your pre-baby body back!  Congrats!
