Ladies, when pursuing a fashionable head-to-toe look for yourselves, you might want to consider adding acne laser treatments to your list.  Even though we have moved beyond our teenage years, do any of us ever outgrow the fear of an outbreak just in time for a big date, event or now in the working world, an important presentation? You know the feeling, the one where you think everyone is looking at “it”, the red, throbbing “eruption” on your chin, nose or forehead. What about the aftermath of those eruptions?…acne scars.  Some of us came through unscathed, but for others there may be a little reminder every morning when looking into the mirror sans makeup. Do not fear, the Bella Rosa Houston MedSpa has taken skin to a new level with their state-of-the-art laser technology treatments.
A MedSpa is essentially a spa with medical staff. While they offer the more commonplace treatments as facials and massage within a day spa atmosphere, there are also a number of procedures that require a highly skilled medical staff. Most of these procedures involve laser technology. Lasers have fast forwarded the field of non-surgical cosmetic procedures into the stratosphere of correcting all manner and types of skin problems and disorders.

Acne is a condition that is as unpleasant as it sounds and looks. The adult version is the cruelest because just when you think you are over it, you get pulled back in. Enter laser technology to the rescue, more specifically, the Harmony XL laser.  The treatment only takes a few minutes and is appropriate for all areas of the face and upper body. The traditional protocol centers on prescription medication such as antibiotics or steroids, plus topical creams. In only a one month period with sessions twice a week, acne laser treatments have proven to achieve an overall 80% clearance rate in the most severe cases without the possibility of scarring.  The traditional method takes triple the time and scarring may still occur.

Rosacea is a skin disorder that requires a holistic approach since there are environmental and lifestyle triggers as well. Often treated traditionally with creams and anti-inflammatory medications, laser skin treatments have proven to be very effective in minimizing the external ramifications of the disease. Ongoing skin care and cosmetic products provided by medical professionals who understand the disorder may prove beneficial as well.

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that is appropriate when there is little or no scarring and a flawless, glowing complexion is the goal.  The DiamondTome system is an exfoliating process that clears away the top layers of dead skin, along with superficial scars and pigmentation irregularities. Approved by Dermatologist and Plastic Surgeons alike, the system is considered to be gentler and more effective than some forms of chemical peels.

There is a saying that your face is your fortune. If this is even remotely true, then investing in it once in awhile can prove to be very profitable. _
