How Long Is The Treatment?
The whole treatment takes 70-90 minutes. The practitioner will exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells. GlycoAla is applied to your skin and left for 40 minutes, during which time you will relax in a darkened room. Once the GlycoAla is removed, you are placed under the POLY Pro LED Light.
Is the treatment uncomfortable?
You may feel a tingling sensation when placed under the light, but this is typically transient and dependent on the extent of sun damage you have.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes. Your provider will discuss contraindications and precautions with you. Some drugs and illnesses may make you photo sensitive therefore you may not be suitable for the treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
A course of 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended.
Is there downtime?
No. You will be instructed to avoid going outdoors in the sunlight for 48 hours after the treatment, and to wear a high SPF sun protection and a wide brimmed hat if you do go out.
Who is the ideal candidate for GlycoAla?
Clients with any skin type who desire an effective, non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that improves the appearance of pore size, fine lines and wrinkles, and hydration, but without the downtime, risk and cost associated with more aggressive treatments.
I’ve been going to Denise Marsters at Bella Derma for years - she is the absolute best! I was very anxious about getting Botox injections, but I knew that I was putting myself in the best hands - she really knows what she’s doing, and I trust her implicitly! My face is a testament to her expertise. Google Review - July 2022Linda Cuccurullo
Kelly is incredibly talented, knowledgeable and lovely to work with. She did such an excellent job on my Hydrafacial! She explained each step and was so honest and refreshing to chat with about products and skincare advice. The entire experience at Bella Derma—from the scheduling, to the front desk, to the service itself—was excellent. Recommend 10/10! - Google review - may 2022Nicole Griffin
I was referred to Bella Derma by a friend 4 years ago and since then have been seeing Denise for my Botox routinely. I couldn’t say better things about her. I was very weary of the Botox/injections for years before I met Denise. Denise has always made me feel extremely comfortable and has never pushed anything on me that I didn’t feel comfortable doing. I still get the same 20 units in my forehead and the results are always consistent. Also, the Botox last a min of 5-6 months for me which isn’t the same for everyone, but I think she has the magic touch!
Anytime I have questions she gives me great recommendations, and the ones I’ve moved forward with I have always been satisfied with. I really trust her and her years of knowledge in the medical field. Also, she will always tell me the promotions that are coming around the corner that apply to me.
The med spa itself is also super cute and clean. I seriously wouldn’t be going back time after time if I felt at all uncomfortable. – Testimonial Vivienne Walsh – May 2022 – 5 Stars
Been coming to Bella Derma for years! The staff here is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Gayle, the owner, continues to stay ahead with all of the cutting edge technology for skin care. Haven’t had a treatment yet that I haven’t loved. Interesting to see a lot of young women coming in. Seems like they cater to women of all ages. Also😊 i’ve seen men in here too!!! Looking forward to the new PRX – T 33 treatment for skin rejuvenation. Google Review - May 2022Terri White
Katie S. is the best!I have had her do hydrafacials, eyebrow tint and lift, and every time I've loved the results. My skin feels so clean after the facial, and my lashes (blonde naturally) look great for weeks after. Katie was able to recommend some great products, and she was super helpful in advice about my skin. Google Review May 2022Kristen Walsh

All I can say is call and book an appt with Kelly because I don’t know why it took me this long to get a facial because it was AMAZING. She did an outstanding job. From start to finish it was flawless. She was very kind, and knowledgeable of what she was doing. My skin was glowing, very clean and bright. I highly recommend making an appt with her for a hydra facial. 2022. GOOGLE ReviewKelli Dow

I had a hydrafacial today with Kelly and it was amazing! Before the facial, Kelly spent time asking me questions to make sure she was using the best products for my sensitive skin. She was so sweet and knowledgeable and made sure I was comfortable throughout. My face has truly never felt this hydrated, soft and clean! Do something luxurious for you skin and book a hydrafacial with Kelly, you won't regret it!! 2/22/2022 YELP ReviewJaclyn O. Abington, MA

I went to Bella Derma for a lash lift/tint & then followed up with a visit for some Botox. My lash lift was great, and my aesthetician was very professional, friendly and did a great job! For Botox I worked with Gail and she was very thorough with her consultation, honest about what and how much I needed where, as well as results. I even described another concern of mine and she was able to explain how Botox could help that as well. Everyone in this office is extremely welcoming and professional, I would go here for all skin and beauty needs! - 2022 - Google ReviewCaity M.
