“I like to spend time with my patients,” says Audrey, part of the well-qualified duo of medical aestheticians practicing at the Rios Center for Plastic Surgery. “The patient and I, we look together at the treated areas to make sure we are getting the results the patient wants.”
We don’t speed through treatments, we slow down for the patient,” says Annie, part of the dynamic duo of care givers. “We have patients who travel long distances – up to 2 hours – just to see Audrey and me because of the type of care we give during these treatments.”
Juvéderm is an injectable filler and used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to add volume to create plump lips, smooth smile lines and soften vertical lip lines. BOTOX relaxes facial muscles to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
The injectable procedures are relatively quick to perform, and quick to recover from. “If you have an event you want to look your best for, you could come in for a treatment and be photo-ready within a week,” says Audrey. “Injections are one of my favorite treatments. You get instant results and they are long-lasting, natural-looking results for the patient.”
Annie agrees. “I love giving Juvéderm injections because you get that instant gratification. It’s my favorite part of the job, to see my patients get that gratification. Not only do I enjoy what I do, my patients enjoy what I do. They enjoy the results of what I enjoy doing – that’s an amazing feeling.”
As part of the Rios Center’s patient-first approach, the only charge for an injectable treatment is for the product. “We don’t charge for our time with the patients. We also offer numbing agents at no extra charge. It’s all about the patient experience, making them comfortable before, during and after their treatment,” says Annie. “One time, I had a patient who during the injection asked me to stop and to look at her. I asked if she was okay, if there was anything wrong. She says, no, I just wanted to look at your face because it gives me a sense of calmness.”
Audrey and Annie exclusively use Juvéderm and BOTOX because they can get the best results with those products. “I have been using Juvéderm since it was released. Compared to other products I have worked with, Juvéderm is long lasting and gives you a smooth appearance after injection. You don’t get those little bumps that may be associated with other hyaluronic acid fillers,” says Audrey. “It’s almost like Play-Doh. You can work with it a bit and mold it into a patient’s skin to get good correction.”
