  • What is an anti-wrinkle treatment?
    Commonly referred to as Botox, these treatments block nerve impulses of injected muscles to temporarily paralyze muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. The result? Firm, natural looking skin that appears younger in just a few days.
  • Who are anti-wrinkle treatments good for?
    The proper time to start anti-wrinkle injections depends on the genetic makeup of a person’s facial muscles and skin. Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, your skin ages, and these repeated expressions cause deep static frown lines at rest. Levels of collagen-the protein that keeps your skin firm- starts to decline as early as your teens and most women start to notice fine lines in their mid twenties.
  • How long do anti-wrinkle treatments take to produce results?
    You may notice a reduction or softening of wrinkles at the targeted areas in as little as a few days, but the full effect takes up to 2 weeks. Anti-Wrinkle Injections will produce an overall smoothing effect of your skin texture and appearance for up to 2-4 months.
  • What are dermal fillers made of and how do they work?
    Dermal fillers are categorized by the substance they are made from. The most common type of fillers are Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that naturally exists in your body and skin. It works to keep skin plump and hydrated by binding to water and regulating the water balance in skin. Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s supply of HA, instantly reviving and adding volume to the skin.
  • How long do dermal fillers last for?
    The results from dermal fillers are seen instantly, and can last for up to a year and a half before the body gradually reabsorbs the particles.
  • What types of conditions are Vi chemical peels good for?
    Vi chemical peels are great for treating the following conditions: Patients with hyper pigmentation, including melasma and acne scarring Mature patients seeking skin rejuvenation by improving firmness, tone, texture and reducing lines and wrinkles Acne patients as young as 16 (may be applied over active acne, even cystic) Patients with mild to moderate rosacea If you have a condition not listed here, contact Revive directly to discuss if you're a good candidate for Vi chemical peels.
  • What should I expect following a Vi chemical peel?
    Peeling is predictable and begins at 48 hours after peel application. The skin may be slightly pink or tan following the Vi Peel. All peels include Aftercare, the Neocutis post procedure soothing cream used to boost collagen, hydrate, prevent excessive dryness, and decrease redness. You will notice extraordinary results within 5-7 days.
  • What a is vampire PRP micro-needling facial?
    A vampire PRP micro-needling facial is a non-surgical, advanced skincare treatment method that harnesses your body’s own natural power to heal itself. PRP facials use a combination of micro-needling and platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood to stimulate new collagen production and improve healing time.
  • What is PRP?
    PRP is platelet rich plasma, aka liquid gold. PRP is derived from blood and contains a rich content of growth factors and platelets. Platelets promote cell growth and regeneration. As the term “platelet rich plasma” suggests, platelets are generally about 5x more concentrated in PRP than in regular blood. This high concentration of platelets is useful, because platelets secret growth factors that assist in wound healing and tissue regrowth.
  • What happens during a vampire facial?
    At the start of the procedure, a numbing cream will be applied to your skin for comfort. Next, a very small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm and placed in a machine called a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red blood cells. The separated PRP is withdrawn (leaving behind the red blood cells) and delivered directly into the skin using the micro-needling pen. Finally, more PRP is applied to the skin to enhance absorption into the tiny micro-needling punctures, resulting in firmer tighter skin. Redness is normal and expected for 24 hours post procedure.
