Blissologie Beauty Adds New Fibroblast Skin Tightening Specialist

Always trying to bring you the latest in the beauty industry, Blissologie in Apollo Beach is proud to offer BellaBlast treatments. It strives to continue educating and attend several international conferences to bring the latest services and trends to the community.

Rita Sampson, R.N. is certified as a fibroblast skin tightening specialist. As a nurse, Rita works in pediatric oncology and could not be more passionate about caring for her patients. Of course, pediatric oncology isn’t always the easiest, so she decided to use her medical training in another area to add some balance, and that led her to BellaBlast.

Sampson was trained using the only treatment pen approved by the FDA in the United States and soon after created the Abbella Beauty Refinery. It’s a new day where aging can be done more gracefully than ever before.

She has always taken her work very seriously and has done it with the utmost pride and perseverance, and now she wants to use those same skills to help others feel and look their best by reviving and touching up their outer selves to match that inner drive and beauty.

Teaming up with Blissologie was ideal as one of the owners, Sandra Caballero, R.D.H., is also in the healthcare industry and they strive to provide the highest standards of care for each and every client.

Blissologie is located at 101 Flamingo Dr., Ste. B in Apollo Beach. Call 523-0435 or visit
