Center console bubble prevention

I am a 2 time victim of the center console screen bubble problem on my 2012 S. First time was fixed under warranty, but alas, I am now out of warranty.
Thankfully, the bubbles this time are not so intrusive, centered around the top by the Tesla logo.

I searched and could not find much aside from "call Tesla and have it replaced".
Anyone have any success as preventing the bubbles from spreading? I'm not keen on shelling out close to $1,000 for something that is cosmetic, but at the same time, if(when) it gets worse I still don't want to shell out the money if there is a way to prevent it from getting worse.
Any suggestions? UV light? Heat gun? Beuller?
