Botox is extremely effective and popular for areas with wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. That includes lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

Botox usually takes a few days to start working. You’ll start seeing results in 3 to 7 days after the initial injection, and they’ll continue to improve until you achieve peak results around 2 weeks after the treatment.

Tenderness in the injection site is very common. You may also experience a little bit of bruising, swelling, or small bumps. Other side effects, like headaches, neck pain, rashes, drooping eyelids, dry eyes, or a crooked smile are not necessarily major causes for concern but they merit reaching out to your doctor.

  • Temporary Paralysis
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Allergic Reaction

If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

Immediately after your Botox injection, it’s best to leave the treatment area as undisturbed as possible.

  • Stay upright, and avoid bending forward or backward.
  • Lying down should be avoided for 4 hours after your treatment. For the first night, consider sleeping propped up on a pillow.
  • Don’t apply any pressure, ice packs, or massage to the treated areas.
  • Avoid intense activities or exercise for 24 hours following your treatment.
  • Stay out of the sun, and wear sunscreen if you go outside.
  • Avoid using harsh and potentially irritating skincare products.
  • Stay hydrated, and avoid alcohol consumption.

Your nurse will provide any additional aftercare guidance following your treatment.

Hair Removal FAQ

Plus, Soprano has a unique cooling system called IcePlus that continuously cools your skin and makes sure you are comfortable throughout the entire treatment. The IcePlus, cold sapphire tip also minimizes the risk of burns, while maintaining the heat deep within, where hair follicles are treated.

Together with the 3D, Simultaneous lasing of the three most effective laser wavelengths for hair removal (755nm, 810nm and 1064nm) already presented in the Platinum version, the Titanium comes with the QuattroTM, an extra-large spot size covering an enormous grid of 600-900 cm2, shortening treatment time by 40%!
The unique ICE technology revealed in the Soprano ICE and Platinum versions is upgraded in Soprano Titanium to ICE Plus – The most advanced cooling system, combining TEC and Inverter cooling technologies to offer an unparallel treatment experience for the patient.
Soprano Titanium’s superior feature-set is further enhanced with dual connectors, enabling sequential usage of two separate applicators, simplifying and shortening treatment procedures.

Soprano Titanium uses Alma Laser’s SHR method, which is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The unique heating and energy delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle while preventing injury and pain to the surrounding tissue. At the same time it is integrated with ICE Plus an advanced technology that continuously cools skin and facilitates range-controlled temperature throughout the entire treatment. The ICE Plus™ cold sapphire tip minimizes epidermal risks while maintaining heat within the dermis where hair follicles are treated. Temperature remains controlled and constant which contributes to the diode’s efficiency.

Soprano Titanium considers safety first. Soprano incorporates SHR™ technology, the only clinically proven laser hair removal method that is virtually painless, and also the safest for all skin types, including dark tones. Its unique gradual heating and single pulse delivery method effectively damages the hair follicle and delays re-growth, while preventing injury to the surrounding tissue. This treatment can be performed anytime of the year, and works well on tanned skin, while ensuring that sun exposure does not leave any marks following treatment.

Yes. While the melanin in dark skin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment, Soprano Titanium’s SHR method has been clinically proven to be the safe for dark skin types. Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to skin with a high melanin count, SHR gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This makes SHR the safest laser hair removal option, including for dark skinned patients.

Yes. Soprano Titanium’s SHR method affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin. Furthermore, sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following SHR treatment.

Actually Soprano Titanium is so fast you can do it during your lunch break. Another amazing benefit of Soprano is its extra large treatment applicator (4 cm – twice as large as the normally used one). This means that the coverage area is much bigger, significantly shortening treatment times and making the entire hair removal process much more comfortable and convenient. You’ll be out and about in less time than ever before.

Depending on the patient’s skin and hair type, results are typically seen following 6 to 8 treatment sessions. Just few treatments and you are probably done for good.

Results are unique to each individual. Typically six up to twelve laser treatments are recommended, but it may be more or less.

 

Laser hair removal hurts less than most other forms of hair removal, especially waxing. Our clients are often surprised to discover the treatment is much more painless than they expected! Many describe the sensation as similar to a snap of a tiny rubber band. All of our machines are equipped with a cooling feature that eases the sting immediately after each laser pulse.

At Revive Med Spa, we use both Nd:YAG and Alexandrite laser hair removal technologies, allowing us to effectively treat customers regardless of skin type or skin tone.

For best results, make sure to come in every 4 to 6 weeks. This allows us to maximize your results while keeping your skin in great shape.

We use state-of-the-art laser equipment like the Candela GentleMax Pro and Cynosure Elite IQ. These cutting-edge machines are equipped with Alexandrite and Nd:YAG laser technologies, to effectively treat all customers regardless of skin type.

Yes! In fact, we require that you shave your treatment area 24-48 hours before your appointment. After your treatment, allow your skin a few days to calm down before shaving again.

Waxing is much more painful than hair removal. It requires you to keep removing your hair every three weeks for the rest of your life, while laser has permanent results. You also need to grow your hair out in between appointments, while allows you to shave.

Hair removal is approved by the FDA as a permanent hair reduction method. Most of our clients report complete or significant permanent reduction in hair growth after their treatments. In specific cases, fluctuating hormones can stimulate regrowth, in which case we recommend coming in for a touch-up.

Prior to laser hair removal, the most important thing is to avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks prior to your appointment. Take good care of your skin, avoid using harsh or exfoliating skincare products, and make sure to shave a day before your appointment. Please check out our appointment information page for complete instructions.

 

Full body means just that. We’ll treat any part of your body where you would like to eliminate hair, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini or Brazilian area, neck, chest, and more!

 

Dermal Fillers/Injectables FAQ

All of the dermal fillers we use include lidocaine to numb the area and reduce pain. While you may feel the sting of the needle initially, the pain subsides quickly. Your treated area might feel tender for a few days following your treatment.

Dermal fillers are ideal for plumping up and adding volume to the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, undereyes, chin, and jawline. We’ll recommend the ideal filler for you based on your target area and desired results.

This depends on the type of filler and how your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Most of the fillers we use last for up to 12-18 months, but they may start to lose their volume a little earlier.

Not necessarily! While swelling and bruising are common temporary side effects, some of our clients don’t experience them at all.

Yes. Dermal filler can be dissolved with a simple injection of dissolver. That said, we still recommend you take your time to consider whether filler is right for you and how you’d like it to look. Constantly dissolving and re-injecting filler can lead to undesirable results.

Botox is extremely effective and popular for areas with wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. That includes lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

The available injectables at Revive Med Spa include Botox,  Bellafill, All Types of Juvederm including  Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, Ultra, Ultra Plus, Volux, Kybella, and dissolver.

Juvéderm Voluma is one of the longest-lasting hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Its results can last for up to 2 years, although this also varies from person to person. We recommend coming in after a year for a touch-up.

The results from Kybella are very long-lasting, even with weight gain. Once you achieve the results you want, you can expect them to last for years and decades to come.

No. Kybella is not considered a filler because it doesn’t add volume. Instead, it’s an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of a double chin.

Restylane results can last up to 18 months, depending on the Restylane product, treatment area, and other factors.

Juvéderm Volbella is a long-lasting lip filler with results usually lasting for 9 to 12 months.

Botox®

Botox is extremely effective and popular for areas with wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. That includes lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

Morpheus

Morpheus8 is an incredible rejuvenating treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency. It transforms the skin on a very deep level, like a non-surgical facelift or body contouring treatment. It stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis, to encourage a natural anti-aging process. Expect tighter, smoother skin and faded wrinkles! Morpheus8 is very unique as it can penetrate 4 mm deep, resulting in the coagulation of fat tissue, for a more contoured physique.

Morpheus8 is a complete face and body treatment. We most commonly perform it on the following body parts:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Jawline
  • Below the chin
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Legs

For best results, we normally recommend undergoing 1-5 Morpheus8 sessions. The precise number depends on your skin condition and goals. For best results, we highly recommend purchasing a package of 3 or more treatments. While you may only need a single session initially, we recommend coming in for maintenance treatments once you see your results starting to fade.

  • You will begin to see some improvement in your skin just a few days after your treatment. As time passes, your skin will continue to improve thanks to increased collagen production, with the most noticeable results showing around the 3-week mark. That said, you will probably continue to see improvement in your skin for 3 months after your treatment.

For best results, we recommend coming in for Morpheus8 treatments once every 4-6 weeks.

 

Fractionated radiofrequency is deeply-penetrating energy that heats the skin. It’s scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles, stimulate tissue constriction, and rebuild collagen, for firmer, younger-looking skin. The combination of fractionated radiofrequency and microneedling amplifies the power of both technologies, creating truly stunning results.

We recommend waiting at least 24-48 hours after your Morpheus8 treatment before applying makeup.

 

Although Morpheus8 uses needles, it’s not usually painful. We will provide you with a topical numbing cream approximately 45-60 minutes prior to your treatment to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.

 

Forma

Also known as the red carpet facial, Forma is a gentle and non-invasive treatment for tightening the skin. It combines heat and radiofrequency to stimulate improved collagen production, to lift, tighten, and contour the skin.

Most clients see immediate tightening effects from Forma, which is why it’s so popular as a pre-event facial. For lasting and dramatic results, we recommend coming in for at least 5 or 6 sessions.

Forma is fantastic as a one-off treatment when you want an immediate skin-tightening effect. For pronounced, lasting results, we recommend coming in for at least 5 or 6 sessions, followed by yearly maintenance sessions.

If you’re experiencing an increase in skin laxity and loss of tone, Forma might be for you! It’s gentle and non-invasive, so it’s a safe choice for all skin types. That said, for customers hoping for a more dramatic skin-firming or renewing effect, you may benefit from a more intensive treatment like Morpheus8 or Potenza.

 

Not at all. The Forma device is pleasantly warm, and the treatment is often compared to a relaxing hot stone massage.

Forma is safe anywhere on the body, but we like it best for the face, neck, and chest. We tend to focus on lifting the jawline, jowls, nasolabial fold, eyes, eyebrows, forehead, and neck.

 

Evolve (Trim Tite Tone)

Evolve is a non-invasive hands-free treatment for body contouring. Evolve has 3 modes: Tite for skin tightening, Trim for body contouring, and Tone for muscle toning. The device is designed to remodel the skin, treat adipose tissue (fat pockets) and activate muscles all in one platform.

 

Evolve can be done on almost every body part, but it’s most popular for the abdomen, arms, back of the legs, buttocks, and thighs.

 

Not at all! During your treatment you can just lie back and relax. We’ll make sure the applicators are comfortably positioned. At most, you may feel a slightly odd vibrating or pulsating sensation.

The Evolve system transmits energy via a system of applicators that are attached to the skin. The specific energy and mechanism of action is a little different depending on the treatment. Tite utilizes radio frequency to heat the lower levels of the dermis in a process called skin remodeling. It stimulates collagen production, which is essential for countering loss of tone and tightening the skin. Tite combines radiofrequency and vacuum, to heat fat tissue that is stored below the skin. It destroys the fat cells while remodeling the skin, for total body sculpting. Finally, Tone uses electricity to stimulate the muscles, causing them to contract repeatedly which improves definition.

You will see some results immediately after your first treatment. After your series of sessions is complete, you’ll keep on seeing improvement for up to 4 months after your last treatment. Once you’ve achieved maximal results, it’s important to maintain them with exercise, great nutrition, and occasional touch-up sessions.

 

You will notice some results within just one treatment, but generally, we recommend coming in for at least 6 to 12 treatments for more dramatic body sculpting effects.

Skin Tightening

Yes! Laser is able to stimulate the deeper layers of skin where collagen forms. The process encourages new and improved collagen production, for firmer, smoother, more lifted skin.

As with any anti-aging treatment, the longevity of your results depends on your genetics as well as other lifestyle factors. We recommend coming in for yearly touch-up treatments in order to maintain your skin firmness indefinitely.

 

We normally recommend between 3 to 5 treatments to see desired results, along with occasional touch-up sessions.
