Regenerative Aesthetics with BBL Hero and Exosomes

Studio R Aesthetics is proud to be the first practice to bring Sciton's BBL Hero to Charlottesville!

BBL Hero is an award-winning technology that improved the appearance of aging skin and reduces rosacea, acne, melasma, and sun spots comfortably with little to no downtime. Patients can enjoy social activities immediately after treatment and typically see visible results after just one treatment, whereas less effective IPL treatments typically take 5 to 6 treatments to see results. 

As we age, our skin loses its fresh and smooth appearance because we lose collagen and elastin. Clinical trials have shown that topical exosomes can stimulate fibroblast cell proliferation, increase collagen and elastin, and can be used to decrease the age of skin and treat a variety of skin conditions. 

What is Broadband light (BBL) and how does it work?

Broadband light is a non-ablative device that delivers light in the visible and infrared spectrum as phototherapy or photorejuvenation to treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Vascular lesions such as telangiectasias and cherry angiomas
  • Coarse, dull skin texture
  • Large pores

BBL is similar to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with differences described below. This technology is a great way to avoid more invasive procedures later in life like plastic surgery. 

What are the differences between BBL and IPL?

BBL is a more advanced version of IPL and offers a number of substantial benefits compared to traditional IPL machines:

  • State of the art cooling features that ensure maximal patient comfort with minimal side effects
  • Filters that allow treatment of a wider range of skin conditions with increased firming and tightening of the skin
  • BBL treatments have been shown to functionally change gene expression in aged skin to be more like younger skin, which is why it is considered regenerative aesthetics
  • Better outcomes when treating conditions such as brown spots and acne when compared to IPL 
  • BBL Hero is performed more quickly than IPL and does not result in IPL striping or scarring that occurs as a result of the stamping process used with all IPL devices

What can I expect during a BBL treatment?

Most patients do not need topical anesthetic and experience warmth during treatment. We will apply a cooling gel prior to the procedure and patients will wear protective eyewear. A typical treatment takes 30 minutes. 

How do I prepare for a BBL treatment?

Patients undergoing BBL treatment should avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 4 weeks before and after treatment. 

Patients should avoid waxing, sugaring, chemical peels, and products containing retinol, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid for 1 week prior to treatment.

What are exosomes?

Exosomes are tiny structure measuring 30-200 nm that play an important role in influencing the environment around cells to regulate communication and facilitate the exchange of RNA and important proteins between cells, in addition to transferring numerous growth factors, cytokines and genetic material that signal tissue repair and improve the health of skin cells. 

As we age, our skin loses its fresh and smooth appearance because we lose collagen and elastin. Clinical trials have shown that topical exosomes can stimulate fibroblast cell proliferation, increase collagen and elastin, and can be used to decrease the age of skin and treat a variety of conditions. 

What can exosomes be used for?

When exosomes are applied to the skin, they can:

  • Reduce post-procedure redness and reduce downtime
  • Reduce the appearance of age-related pigment
  • Visibly make skin appear firmer and more youthful
  • Visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrate and nourish the skin
  • Promote a more radiant and even toned complexion

When exosomes are applied to the scalp, they can:

  • Visibly make hair look and feel softer, shinier, and fuller
  • Hydrate and nourish the scalp
  • Promote a healthy hair growth cycle
  • Noticeably reduce hair shedding

Which treatments are exosomes best paired with?

While topical exosomes can be applied directly to the skin, they are more effective when applied after treatments that allow the exosomes to penetrate deeper into the skin such as:

  • Chemical peels
  • Microneedling treatments
  • RF microneedling treatments
  • Moxi laser treatments
  • CO2 laser treatments

BBL FAQs

From beginning to end, my experience at Studio R was truly remarkable. Let me start by mentioning that I come from Los Angeles, known for its luxurious medical spas. Upon stepping into Studio R, I instantly felt like I was entering a Beverly Hills med spa. The office was stunning, complete with a selection of delectable snacks and beverages, and I was warmly greeted by Michelle at the reception desk. Streamlining the paperwork process, I completed all necessary forms on an iPad, which proved to be remarkably efficient. Upon completion, I was guided by Dr. Segura herself. She attentively listened to my concerns regarding facial aging and took the time to educate me on the natural changes that occur with age. We delved into discussions about skincare health and explored various options available to address my specific areas of concern. Dr. Segura's serene demeanor instilled a sense of calm within me, putting me at ease throughout the consultation. Opting for a toxin treatment, the procedure was relatively painless, thanks to Dr. Segura's expertise and her array of techniques to minimize discomfort. Following the treatment, she dedicated time to recommend skincare products tailored to my needs and crafted a comprehensive regimen for me to follow—a structure I greatly appreciate and need. Upon leaving, Michelle and Jennifer provided exceptional assistance, ensuring I was enrolled in rewards programs and equipped with all necessary information for my follow-up appointment. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Studio R. Having visited other med spas in Charlottesville, none have matched the level of attention and warmth extended by the team at Studio R.

Had my first visit to Studio R Aesthetics and Wow! This place is nice. The design interior is elegant and inviting and the staff is so warm. It’s like checking into a 5 star boutique hotel. They have private rooms dedicated to their individual services and best of all procedures are performed by physicians. Physicians who have received the same treatments they provide to their clients. Anyone looking for a high level of professionalism should experience Studio R Aesthetics!

I’ve been going to Studio R Aesthetics for a year now, and I am continually impressed with Dr. Segura’s skill and professionalism. She is a true artist! She has a very gentle technique, so I very rarely feel discomfort with the procedures I’ve received. She takes her time to evaluate your facial structure and muscles to give a beautifully tailored result for her patients. She is also very kind and a pleasure to interact with!

I had the pleasure visiting Studio R Aesthetics and meeting their amazing staff! Jason, Brandy and Gabby, along with their entire team, are very knowledgeable and provide kind and caring customer service. One thing that stands out to me is, their willingness to make sure you get the results you are looking for by suggesting options they have already tried on themselves. The Arc of the Piedmont is truly appreciative to partner with this amazing company as they provide supporting back to our local community in being the Presenting Sponsor of our Annual Santa Fun Run. Not only are their products and customer service top notch, their community support is out of this world! If you are looking for someone that can help you make true changes to your overall health, I would highly recommend Studio R Aesthetics.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of experiencing an exceptional facial administered by Michelle. From the moment I entered the serene ambiance of the treatment room, I was enveloped in a sense of tranquility, enhanced by the soothing background music. The attention to detail was evident as the bed was meticulously arranged to provide optimal comfort with a warm blanket, allowing me to unwind completely. Michelle's unique approach to skincare was evident from the outset. She took the time to inquire about my specific skin concerns, ensuring a tailored approach to her facial treatment. Throughout the session, she thoughtfully explained each step of the process and its benefits to address my individual needs. Michelle's skilled hands guided me into profound relaxation, evoking a meditative experience that transcended the ordinary. Notably, the facial extended beyond mere skincare, incorporating a rejuvenating massage of the chest and neck area. This holistic approach further underscored Michelle's commitment to providing a comprehensive and deeply enriching spa experience. Today, my skin feels amazing. I wholeheartedly endorse Michelle's facial treatments to anyone seeking expert skincare guidance or desiring a professional relaxation experience. I know what I want to buy my husband for his next birthday 🙂

The two words that come to mind with Studio R is "trustworthiness" and "professional." The doctors (actual doctors), do such a great job ensuring the treatments are the correct ones to meet their patient's needs and goals with a patient-first mindset. Some medical spas feel like they are pushing treatments with profit first. If you are interested in trying out a medical spa, Studio R is the place to start. If you use another spa, you should definitely check Studio R out!

One thing about Studio R that sets them apart from so many other similar practices is that they PRACTICE what they preach. For example, if Dr. Itri is consulting with you on their weight managment program he can speak to you from direct experience having invested much of his own time into living and working the program. So he can bring you first-hand experience when he speaks to helping accomplish your goals. They really helps Studio R stand above the crowd. I highly recommend them!

Medical doctors own this business and are the primary care-givers. They're concerned first and foremost about long term healthy outcomes. Furthermore, they and their team take the time and energy to ensure a friendly and relaxed client experience - their appointments last about twice as long as other providers to ensure every client gets real attention and is comfortable. Actually, a lot of their clients have come from other providers.

I would recommend this place to anyone based on their professionalism, patience, and ability to explain complex concepts about specific concerns to clients. Will be coming back for more services!

I’ve been seeing Michelle at Studio R for about 6 months now. I came to the medical spa extremely insecure about my adult cystic/hormonal acne and felt extremely defeated and misguided by other routes I had taken. With Michelles help, I started a skin care regimen that finally works, I’m getting the best facials I’ve ever had, and I was even given the opportunity to get a BBL treatment to fight residual scarring and underlying acne. Michelle’s work has truly helped boost my confidence, and my skin looks and feel the best it ever has! She is so dedicated in what she does, and her hard work never goes unnoticed. Michelle and her team at Studio R are so comforting and I truly couldn’t imagine this skincare journey without them. They’re all extremely caring and are willing to go above and beyond for each one of their patients. I am so lucky to be one of those patients.
