What is a Medical Spa?
A medical spa or MedSpa is a hybrid between a doctor’s office and a day spa. RevIVe Medical Spa operates under the full-time supervision of Dr. Lindsey Jackson, a licensed Medical Doctor, in a relaxed, comfortable, spa setting. RevIVe Medical Spa patients have the option of getting medical services like BOTOX®, laser hair removal, and medical-grade skin therapies. Our medical professionals are licensed, educated and trained to ensure the highest level of care for each and every guest.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a purified protein derived from Botulinum Toxin A. BOTOX® works by preventing the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscle therefore relaxing the facial movements that create facial lines. Schedule a complimentary consult to see how BOTOX® can benefit you.
How long does BOTOX® last?
BOTOX® can last up to 4 months depending on the area that is treated but each person is different, so duration of results may vary.
What is a filler?
A filler is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. Fillers help contour and add volume to areas of the face that can be diminished by aging and weight loss.
What is micro needling?
Micro Needling is a device that temporarily creates thousands of micro-channels which allows for better penetration and diffusion of topical products. It initiates the bodies healing response in order to increase production of collagen and elastin in the skin. This results in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, an increase in collagen and elastin, and overall improvement of skin condition. This is an accumulative treatment, so a package of 3-5 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart will give you optimal results. At RevIVe Medical Spa we will answer any questions you may have about Micro Needling.
What are some common misconceptions about laser hair reduction (LHR)?
LHR is permanent hair reduction, not permanent hair removal. Each treatment will result in approximately 20% hair reduction in size and density. It usually takes about 6 treatments to reach maximum reduction, with a touch-up or two yearly (depending on the fluctuation of hormones). LHR does not work on blonde, red, gray or white hairs; darker hair and lighter skin yields the best results. Schedule your complimentary consult to see if LHR is right for you.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel has an array of strengths, from light exfoliation (mandelic or pyruvic) to medium depth (salicylic or Jessner) to deep exfoliation (TCA). The number of layers applied and strength used determines the amount of exfoliation that takes place. You may experience light sloughing to more of a “peel”. Your RevIVe skin care consultant will determine which peel is best for you and inform you about post procedure outcomes.
Misconceptions about sunscreens:
Many people think sunscreens are only needed when going out in the sun, this is false. Incidental exposure adds up. Going to and from your car, sitting by a window at lunch, and even office lighting all add up over time. This is why wearing sunscreen everyday, all year long, will give you optimal protection. A minimum SPF of 30 or higher EVERYDAY, reapplying when needed (i.e., sweating, long sun exposure, swimming, etc.) is the best remedy to prevent extensive sun damage.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections were approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles in 2002. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a diluted form of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a bacterium that causes botulism (a type of food poisoning).
What Are the Most Common Uses of BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be used to treat wrinkles of the face (forehead
wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet). Before BOTOX® Cosmetic was used for
cosmetic purposes, it was FDA approved for alternative treatments including
migraine headaches, low back pain, excessive sweating, muscle spasticity, neck
spasms, facial spasms, and vocal cord spasms.
How do BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections block nerve impulses to the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. Facial wrinkles disappear almost instantly, creating a more youthful appearance.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
1.Why is the laser a safe treatment?
The Candela laser is safer than traditional methods because of its unique ability to electively treat non blonde hair while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Impulse Light Treatments FAQs
1. What conditions are treated with the M22 Q switch laser system?
Dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions and tattoos (amateur and professional; black and blue tattoo inks are treated). The effectiveness of the laser is dependent upon the age, location, depth, and type of tattoo and pigmented lesions, as well as on the composition of the pigments.
3.Why would someone have a pigmented lesion or tattoo removed?
Many people are uncomfortable with unsightly dermal lesions like age spots, freckles and birthmarks, or with a tattoo they had applied several years ago. It is estimated that as many as 50% of individuals with tattoos regret the permanency of the tattoo and wish to have it removed. With the M22 Q switch, treatment is now possible.
4.What does treatment involve?
Treatment with the M22 varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size and type of tattoo, color of the patient’s skin and depth to which the tattoo or pigment extends beneath the skin’s surface. In general, these steps will take place:
• The patient is asked to wear eye protection consisting of an opaque covering or goggles.
• The skin’s reaction to the laser is tested during the first visit to determine the most effective treatment.
• Treatment consists of placing a handpiece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser. As many patients describe it, each pulse feels like the snapping of a rubber band against the skin.
• Smaller tattoos or lesions will require fewer pulses, while larger ones will require more. All tattoos will require retreatments, necessitating multiple patient visits.
• The M22 system is less painful and requires less recovery time than some other treatment methods. The degree of discomfort varies with each person, depending on his/her pain threshold. Most patients do not require pain management. In some cases, however, depending on the nature and location of the tattoo or lesion, the physician may elect to use some form of anesthetic.
5. Is it possible to have a tattoo or pigmented lesions treated that was previously treated by another modality?
Patients with previously treated tattoos may be candidates for the M22 systems. Tattoos or pigmented lesions that have not been effectively removed by other treatments may respond well to Q switch laser therapy, providing prior treatment did not cause excessive scarring or skin damage.
6.Should certain precautions be taken after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, an ice pack may be applied to soothe the treated area. A topical antibiotic cream or ointment is recommended. Care should be taken in the first few days following treatment to avoid scrubbing the area, and abrasive skin cleansers should be avoided. A bandage or patch may help to prevent abrasion of the treated area. During the course of treatment it is recommended that patients cover the area with a sun block that is approved by the treating physician.
