Common Postpartum Concerns

common postpartum concerns singapore


A healthy post-pregnancy body looks different for every mum, but common postpartum concerns like saggy skin around the abdomen, belly pouches (diastasis recti), and stubborn fat can often prevent us from achieving our desired figure. While some women might be able to get back into shape with a healthy diet and regular exercise, others might seek professional treatments to help them look and feel their best. 

Read on for more on these common postpartum concerns:

Postpartum Slimming

postpartum slimming treatments

Sagging skin after childbirth occurs as a result of the skin stretching to accommodate the growing baby in the womb. After the baby is born, mothers may see loose or excess skin around the stomach. 

How to get back in shape

It’s only natural to put on some extra weight during pregnancy. And if you’re looking to enhance your silhouette postpartum, a combination of healthy diet, frequent exercise and professional help (like seeking out body-sculpting treatments) might be your best option. 

Body-sculpting treatments are effective for postpartum mothers because they help to reduce fatty tissue in localised areas on the body for a sculpted physique. Here are the 2 most popular body-sculpting treatments offered at Illumia Therapeutics.

To provide clients with the best results, our therapists will recommend the most suitable treatments using our unique Hybrid2 Protocol, a combined therapy approach, in your personalised treatment plan.

Prime Sculpt PRO

How does this treatment work?

The latest edition to the Prime Sculpt series, Illumia Therapeutics’ Prime Sculpt PRO combines two different technologies that are clinically proven to specifically target fat cells in the body, without damaging the surrounding skin.

Why and how is it effective?

The machine combines ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) technology to provide an all-rounder solution in body contouring. Ultrasound waves reduce the fat cells and the appearance of cellulite in targeted areas, and work together with RF waves to improve skin laxity and texture.

Results to Expect

Depending on the targeted areas you want to treat, we recommend 4 to 6 sessions with 1- to 2-week intervals. Results can be seen from the second session.

  • 20-min treatment time
  • Non-invasive & FDA-approved
  • No downtime & no side effects
  • Enhanced and long-lasting results with no downtime

Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA)

diastasis recti abdominis treatment

A belly pouch can develop as a result of diastasis recti abdominis (DRA). Most women may experience DRA in the third trimester of their pregnancy, when the abdominal muscle separates and connective tissue stretches out to accommodate the growing belly.

Typically, the separation between the muscles will shrink after childbirth, but for some women, the muscle remains stretched and this results in a prominent belly pouch in the postpartum stages.

How to treat diastasis recti

The first 6 months after childbirth is the “golden period” for mothers to experience the best body sculpting results and get back into shape.

Tesla Forte


How does this treatment work?

illumia Therapeutics’ Tesla Forte uses Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) technology, a pulsed magnetic field that causes muscle contractions to build muscle mass, boost natural metabolism and burn fat - all in one treatment.

Why and how is it effective?

Each pulse triggers and excites muscle contraction in the targeted areas, such as the abdomen, arms or buttocks. This grows muscle mass, and helps to burn fats even when the body is at rest. Clients who are looking to achieve a more defined body contour and target specific areas with stubborn fat are ideal candidates for the Tesla Forte.

Results to expect

The ideal sequence of treatments are twice a week for the first 6 to 8 sessions for muscle toning.

  • Strengthens muscles to induce weight loss
  • Boosts body metabolism
  • Non-invasive & no downtime
  • How soon can I see results?

In general, clients can feel a tighter, stronger core after about 8 sessions with Illumia Therapeutics’ TeslaForte.

Vaginal Tightening

As frightening as it sounds, modern vaginal tightening solutions can provide a better quality of life - and a better sex life - by restoring your vaginal health. A vaginal tightening treatment involves inserting an applicator or a tool about 3 to 6 centimetres in your vaginal canal, which is usually about 7 to 15 centimetres for an average woman.


While you may think about surgeries like labiaplasty (surgery on the labia) or vaginoplasty, a vaginal tightening treatment is much less painful with fewer side effects, where up to 30% of women in Singapore opting for vaginal tightening procedures to improve their sex life and boost their confidence. About 58% of women look to strengthen their vaginal walls after childbirth, which often results in vaginal laxity.

Vaginal tightening solutions can also help with:

                • Improved sex life
                • Vaginal dryness
                • Urinary incontinence

What vaginal tightening procedures does Illumia Therapeutics offer?

Good vaginal health can truly benefit you in the long run. If you are feeling motivated to get your first vaginal treatment in Singapore, it is always recommended to consult with your doctor or gynaecologist first to determine if you are eligible for the treatment.

*Results may vary with each individual.
