Nationally Renowned Nutritionist Dr. Ro Joins Forces With Her Husband Dr. Murray Riggins to Open Medi-Spa

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - At Dr. Riggins My MASC (Medical Aesthetic Skin Care) in Northwest Washington, DC, owners and founders Doctors Rovenia Brock and Murray Riggins have taken skin care to another level with services that include nutrition counseling, state-of-the-art skin care treatments, and non-invasive medical procedures.

The multi-disciplined husband and wife team opened MASC to give clients "a safe, comprehensive alternative to skin care." After years of working in emergency rooms, Dr. Riggins has seen far too many facial procedures gone wrong. "Instead of seeing patients after they've had bad outcomes, I want to use my experience and training to ensure positive safe results," emphasizes Riggins. Dr. Brock, who is nationally known as "Dr. Ro," author of Dr. Ro's "Ten Secrets to Livin' Healthy," rounds out the practice with her line of skin care products and her training as a nationally renowned nutritionist and health coach. "The skin is the largest organ of the body. It just makes sense to treat it holistically. At MASC, we teach people how to take care of their skin from the inside out." In addition to nutrition and health coaching, MASC services include a variety of body and facial treatments, chemical peels, laser skin treatments, laser hair removal, and dermal wrinkle fillers and injectables.
