“The BBL is a great starter procedure for anyone who is looking to improve the health and appearance of their skin,” says Audrey, one of Dr. Rio’s well-qualified medical aestheticians. “With Sciton‘s BBL, we can treat a wide variety of different skin conditions. We can treat rosacea, acne, the appearance of spider veins, and vascular lesions. We can shrink pores, and it stimulates collagen production. So not only does it correct, it helps you fight the aging process.”
Intense Pulsed Light, photo facial and photo therapy refer to treatments that utilize bursts of light at precise wavelengths. BBL is BroadBand Light, the Sciton-branded version of the technology. Annie, half of the dynamic medical aesthetician duo at the Rios Center, trained with one of the BBL procedure developers along with Audrey. “Dr. Rios really likes to keep us up to date on the latest technology and techniques,” says Annie.
The BBL features quick-change filters for a variety of procedures and can be calibrated to your exact skin type for optimum effectiveness. “The BBL works really well for us and our clients because we can fine tune it,” says Audrey.
“It is one of our most popular procedures because it does so much. I like to use it as a jump start for our treatments because it gives you that nice, healthy, even glow to your skin,” says Audrey. “It also stimulates collagen renewal, so it goes great with our other procedures, such as microdermabrasion and microlaser peels, even BOTOX.”
According to Annie, the best results are obtained after approximately three treatments, one every four weeks. “Once you are happy with your result, we can maintain it by repeating treatment about once every three months.”
To help maintain your great results, Audrey recommends checking out the selection of skin care products available for purchase at the Rios Center. “You may have never heard of these products because they are medical-grade skin care products. They are effective,” explains Audrey, who noted that in the interest of patient care, all skin care products used and sold by the Rios Center are personally tested and approved by the staff.
“We believe in what we offer here,” says Annie. “We use the products ourselves and we get great feedback from our patients. So, not only do we know they are great products, there’s science behind them.”
Going the extra mile and providing that comprehensive coverage is part of Dr. Rios’ commitment to our South Texas community and his patients. “We bend over backwards to take care of our patients,” explains Dr. Rios. “Without our patients, we have nothing.”
