Following six years in group practices, Dr. Natalie Houston Daniels opened her solo practice Bella Pelle Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center, on March 4. 2014. “My goal was to create an environment where patients could have full-service dermatology care in one place. Many people go to their medical dermatologists in one practice, have their cosmetic treatments in another, and visit yet another for facials and skincare products. I wanted to make it simple and all-inclusive. Patients appreciate having their medical and aesthetic needs met in one location under a doctor's care.”
Dr. Daniels graduated with a B.S. in Biology from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, and attended the University of Louisville School of Medicine, where she completed her Internal Medicine Internship and Dermatology Residency. Dr. Daniels also completed a year-long Cosmetic Dermatology/ Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship in Boston, Massachusetts. She is board-certified in Dermatology and is the only area Cosmetic Dermatologist to have completed an additional year of advanced, specialized training in non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as botox, fillers, laser therapy, and various others. “I believe patients deserve to have providers who are skilled, well trained, and will take great care of them.” Dr. Daniels is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and the Kentucky Medical Association.
“Becoming a business owner, and at the same time providing the best dermatology care that I could, was a steep learning curve, and I'm still learning and growing every day,” says Dr. Daniels. “I am grateful that I have had great support from my husband, Condrad, and my parents Wade and Alice Houston, who run our other family business, HJI Supply Chain Solutions. Since I was a child, my parents have been entrepreneurs, so their guidance has been invaluable. Like most, I am looking forward to brighter days and new opportunities this year!”
Bella Pelle offers a wide range of dermatologic services, including medical dermatology for adults and children as well as minor surgical procedures. Aesthetician services include Coolsculpting, facials, skincare consultations, and eyelash/brow tinting. “We value our patients and know they can go to any dermatology practice, so we appreciate them choosing us. We strive to deliver excellent medical care in a kind, compassionate, and friendly environment.”
Dr. Daniels and her staff are excited about some products and procedures new to Bella Pelle. RHA® Collection “is a designer hyaluronic acid filler approved for dynamic wrinkles and folds made to last longer than others on the market and is very natural-looking because it moves with the movement of the face. I am grateful to have been chosen as one of the exclusive providers in Kentucky to inject this amazing filler. Patients love the results!” Most patients need at least two syringes of filler, so throughout March, Bella Pelle will offer a free Hydrafacial MD treatment to patients purchasing two syringes of RHA® Collection filler. Another new treatment, Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy with DermaFlo®, “is coupled with SkinPen Microneedling or CO2 Laser Resurfacing to enhance collagen production for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and acne scarring. Our patients love the look and improved texture of their skin!”
According to Dr. Daniels, “From the products that we sell to the treatments we provide, we are led by science. The safety of our patients comes first. Because of my training and expertise in cosmetic dermatology, I hold myself to a high standard. I am continuously reading and learning about new developments and technologies in the aesthetic industry.” In the spring, Bella Pelle hopes to launch the new cellulite treatment Qwo®, “It is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Cellulite is one of those textural changes to the thighs and buttocks that 80-90% of women will have at some point in their lives, and most likely, all of us hate it! I am thrilled that our practice will be able to offer this treatment soon!”
