When it comes to Belo treatments, everyone knows the classics: Thermage FLX for a slimmer, sharper face, Glycopeel Cleaning for monthly acne prevention, Angel Whitening for bright underarms, Glass Skin Facial for K-drama-worthy, luminous skin. But in case you didn’t already know, we have tons more treatments in our roster that you might be, as the Gen Z kids say these days, sleeping on. If you’re feeling adventurous, here are 5 little-known treatments you should add to your Belo Bucket List.
Acne will never not be a problem, and it’s the skin concern that inspired Dr. Vicki Belo to build Belo Medical Group in the first place. But imagine if you could target one of the main sources of acne, which is excessive sebum production. Further, imagine if you could kill your oil-producing glands. Forever. With Agnes RF, it’s possible! This acne-busting treatment combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) to specifically target and destroy oil glands and fat cells. It’s a permanent solution for a variety of skin conditions, such as spots with persistent acne, large pores, and syringoma. Fast-forward to the 3:18 mark in the video above to see this machine in action.
Price: Starts at P9,000 per session
Dr. Belo wants you to exfoliate multiple times a week, because this practice sloughs off dead skin cells and encourages the underlying baby-soft skin to shine. Body Scrub with Bleach starts off with a sea salt scrub, blended with essential oils and slathered all over the body. This allows your skin to better absorb the active ingredients of a natural bleaching agent—made from grape seed extract, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), and licorice—that’s applied afterwards. Skin hunger or touch starvation during the pandemic is real, and if you’re craving the sensation of relaxing human touch, this is the perfect way to do so.
For stubborn acne—and even more stubborn acne scars and splotches that won’t go away, no matter how many bars of glycolic soap you use—Spanish Peel is the solution. Especially formulated for those with severe acne, this treatment is a combination of a sugar acid peel and a vitamin cream (developed in Spain). It will dry up existing acne, minimize pore size, and get rid of acne scars. You’ll notice your skin sloughing off in the next few days, revealing new, baby-soft skin underneath. Belo patient Irish Faith shares her experience in the video above. Skip to the 3:38 mark to get a glimpse of just how intense this peel is!
Sadly, it’s not just acne scars we have to worry about. Our skin can become rough and pigmented over time. That’s where laser resurfacing can become very helpful—it renews and smoothes out skin so that you can start anew. Fraxel is able to create microscopic wounds without affecting surrounding tissue, to trick your body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tissue. Belo has two kinds of Fraxel: Fraxel Dual’s dual lasers target pigmentation and sun damage + wrinkles, texture, and acne scarring. Fraxel Thulium treats brown pigmentation like sun spots, age spots, and melasma. Skip to 1:30 in the video above to see Fraxel at work.

Dr. Belo has shared in the past that if she weren’t a beauty doctor, she would have been interested in being a sexpert or sex therapist. Because she cares not only about your external appearance but also your happiness in bed (wink, wink), she decided to make the world-famous ThermiVa treatment available to you here in the Philippines. This vaginal tightening treatment is like Thermage FLX, but for your vagina. It uses a slender radiofrequency-emitting device (read: no pain!) and takes only 30 minutes to finish, with no discomfort or downtime. Results are often immediate and can be observed in both the vagina and the labia. Meaning, it can make the appearance of your labia look prettier, too! Dr. Belo likes to refer to it as “flower arrangement.” Learn more about ThermiVa in the video above.
Price: Starts at P50,000 per session
