BELO MEDICAL GROUP TREATMENTS

I am one of those women who have a skin far from being perfect. I admire those who have white and flawless skin. I know that if I wanted to have a skin such as that, I need lots and tons of money, something I do not have.

Just out of curiosity, I asked one of the leading Medical Clinics here in the Philippines for a price quotation of the treatments I have seen online. Those are the ones I wish they could have performed for me but seeing the prices that were sent to me, it became quite obvious I won’t be able to afford one complete session of any of the treatments I have asked for.

See below for yourself. 🙂

ACNE SCARS TREATMENTS

For Deep or Pitted scar

FRAXEL

Minimum Price (Face): Php 18,000.00 per session

Package: Php 80,000.00 for 5 sessions

*Total cost will be provided upon consultation

Available in Tomas Morato, Alabang, Greenbelt, Cebu

Fraxel Restore Laser Treatment makes use of an Erbium glass laser that is passed several times over the treatment area causing fractional resurfacing with a million points of light. The laser causes microscopic wounding and the presence of normal tissue around the wounds allows for faster healing and minimal to no downtime. There is a sensation of heat similar to that of a sunburn and the treated area will be red and swollen which may last for several hours to 2-3 days. This procedure helps improve the appearance of acne scars.

 

How long is the treatment?

The treatment lasts about 30 minutes to an hour.

 

How often should I do the treatment?

The treatment may be done every 1-4 weeks, depending on the assessment of the doctor, for 5-6 sessions.

 

When will I see results?

Fraxel produces great results. After the first treatment, you will begin to feel the difference in your skin, as it gradually becomes softer, smoother, tighter and fresher. Fraxel successfully minimizes fine lines and wrinkles as well as an ablative laser peel and evens out skin discolorations caused by the sun damage or aging. Multiple sessions are advised for maximized results and most people begin to notice positive changes in their skin within about a week and the improvements continue for about six months.

 

FRACTIONAL (CO2) LASER

Minimum Price: Php 25,000.00 per session

*Total cost will be provided upon consultation

Available in all clinics

Fractional laser skin treatment is an exciting new technology that successfully corrects many dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions, with increased comfort and minimal post-treatment pain and care. Fractional laser skin treatments give excellent results for skin resurfacing and when correcting skin conditions including scars, superficial lesions, epidermal nevi, actinic cheilitis, warts, skin tags, and keratoses.

 

How do fractional laser skin treatments work?

Fractional laser skin treatments create areas of treated tissue surrounded by untreated, healthy tissue. Some fractional skin treatments (e.g., Palomar’s Lux1540 and Lux2940) create narrow, deep columns that extend through the epidermis into the dermis through an array of intense laser energy microbeams. These columns can either be “non-ablative” (the laser beams coagulate the affected tissue) or “ablative” (the laser beams vaporize the affected tissue). The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the columns of affected tissue – improving the skin condition being treated.

 

How many fractional laser skin treatments will my patients need?

The number of treatments necessary will depend on the condition being treated.

 

What should my patients expect after treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, the skin may be mildly red (erythema) and swollen (edema). These effects are normal and indicate a successful treatment. Any swelling typically subsides within a day, and most redness dissipates within a few days. For ablative procedures, light superficial bleeding and “oozing” may occur. As the redness and swelling subside, a brownish “bronzing” effect will become visible. The bronzing will fade over the next few days as new, healthy skin replaces the laser-treated tissue.

Other side effects may include discharge, crusting or scaling, and milia – these too typically resolve within one week.

 

What precautions should my patients follow after treatment?

For best results and to prevent complications, all patients should strictly follow their post-treatment care protocol. Cool, moist compresses applied immediately post-treatment may soothe the treated skin. Soaking and gentle cleansing may aid exfoliation as new tissue replaces old tissue. For two weeks following treatment, avoiding sun exposure is important.

Minimum Price: Php 2,200.00 per session

*Total cost will be provided upon consultation

Available in all Belo clinics except Trinoma clinic

It has no peeling, no blistering and no down time. This is not a laser or (IPL) Intensive Pulse Light. Treatment takes an hour. This is done after a cleaning procedure.

 

How does it work?

A natural chemical produced by P. acnes bacteria (called Coproporphyrin III) attaches itself to the bacteria’s membranes.  When the Inara radiates this chemical with blue light at specific wavelengths, it produces and releases oxygen molecules that cause the bacteria to self-destruct.  The light also stimulates your body’s own natural processes to heal and rejuvenate your skin. Alternating Inara blue treatments with Inara red treatments adds the unique advantage of reducing pore size and oil production.

 

What areas can I treat?

The most common areas for acne treatment are the face, chest, back, and arms, but any area of your body that has acne can be treated with the Inara.

 

How long do the effects last?

For most clients, acne is gone for six months.  In some cases, touch-up treatments (typically two to four treatments) may be necessary.

Not only is the treatment safe, it’s completely painless.
