The presence of fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be disheartening, as it is usually a sure sign of the aging process taking hold. There is not much we can do to keep ourselves from getting older, but there are methods available that help keep aging at bay. Two cosmetic treatments - BOTOX® and Dysport® - have proven effective at softening the facial muscles and promoting a more youthful appearance. At Revive at The Group Med Spa, we offer BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments to help your skin look more refreshed and vibrant by softening the muscles responsible for the fine lines and wrinkles.
Similar to Dysport, BOTOX® is an injectable that temporarily relaxes the muscles. When used for cosmetic purposes, BOTOX® can target the muscles in the face and alleviate wrinkles. Smiling, laughing, frowning and other expressions all contribute to muscles contracting, which develop wrinkles over time and contribute to the facial features looking older and the skin seeming less elastic.
The drug works by blocking specific nerves in the face that are in control of muscle movement, and when BOTOX® is injected, the muscles become slightly weakened. The result is less distinct wrinkles as well as the prevention of wrinkles from deepening further. There are many misconceptions about BOTOX®, including the idea that the drug is toxic or that the muscles in the face are severely effected. However, when administered by a licensed professional, BOTOX® can create beautiful results, and the doses are so minuscule that the drug cannot be traced in the bloodstream. Overall, receiving BOTOX® treatment can improve facial contours and help you look and feel younger.

If you are curious about whether BOTOX® is right for you, then we welcome you to schedule a complimentary consultation with us. During this time, we will discuss the concerns you have and determine your treatment goals. We will also assess your medical history and ensure that you have no underlying muscle or nerve conditions. Afterward, we will examine the muscles in your face and design a treatment plan that uses injectables to create a natural-looking and younger appearance.
During treatment, the injection will be administered directly into the muscle responsible for causing wrinkles. The needle used during treatment is very thin, similar in size to an insulin needle, and clients usually experience minimal discomfort. Most clients notice softening in a few days, and you can expect injections to last 3-4 months or longer, at which time you can schedule another treatment session.

Both BOTOX® and Dysport® are safe treatments to use, and side effects are usually minor. You may experience pain at the injection site or minor swelling and bruising. However, the side effects are temporary and will subside as healing progresses. More severe complications include double vision, drooping eyelids, blurred vision and swollen eyes. If you experience any of these serious side effects, you should consult a member of the Revive staff immediately. Overall, both BOTOX® and Dysport® have produced beautiful results in many of its clients and is one of the most popular procedures to receive when combating the effects of aging.
If you have additional questions about BOTOX® and Dysport® treatment, or if you would like to schedule a consultation, please give us a call. We would be happy to work with you to achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance with the use of injectables.

This is a very common question with first-time injectable clients. How does one even schedule if they aren't quite sure what they are asking for?! Well, we are here to help!
Let's break it down...
+ NEUROTOXIN (BOTOX & DYSPORT)
+ DERMAL FILLERS (RESTYLANE & JUVEDERM)
What's the difference⁉️
Botox or Dysport are most effective for superficial lines and wrinkles, while filler (Restylane or Juvederm) plumps the skin and restores volume loss. Depending on your goals, a combination of toxin and filler can make the greatest impact on your appearance!
Neurotoxin(s) - (Botox or Dysport)
Offer natural-looking wrinkle reduction by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. By temporarily preventing the contraction of muscles one can reduce and prevent laugh lines, frown lines, and crow's feet. The three most common areas treated are the forehead, crow's feet, and vertical '11' lines between the eyebrows.
Dermal Filler(s) - (Restylane or Juvederm)
Restore facial volume loss or deficiency. Adding volume with an injectable gel filler adds volume, which plumps the lips, lifts the cheeks, encourages natural collagen production, and prevents the skin from sagging. Add fullness and volume to your smile and/or the middle and lower facial areas.
Toxin and fillers both require the expertise of a certified medical professional for safe and effective results. Schedule your complimentary consultation with our providers today to learn more about reaching your goals with neurotoxin and dermal fillers.
You can expect to notice results 24-48 ours after your first treatment.
Your treatment team will walk you through the side effects, and some have noticed temporary localized pain at the injection site.
You can expect to return to all regular activities immediately after your treatment.
I drove two hours from my home, past Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, to Revive for toxin and lip filler. I have done my research on injectables for a while now and was impressed with Revive's website. Professional and appealing!– Sandy
Wow! - is all I have to say! Big city level of service. Any treatment I've had here so far was top notch and every staff member I've worked with was super knowledgeable, professional and made sure I was comfortable.– Sarah
I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!– Kara

My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!– Leah
Completely in love with my Dysport results I received from Kisha! She is very knowledgeable, professional, sweet, and personable!– Lana
First time getting lip filler, I was so nervous! Jodi Arp was my injector and she was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable and at ease! My lips look so great I couldn’t be happier! I will definitely be going back!– Ellen
Mary was great! She spent time with me. She answered all of my questions since this was my first time getting injectables. She really analyzed what would be the best options for me based on my concerns. The results were awesome. I felt like in 2-3 days I could already notice a difference. After two weeks the results were remarkable. I definitely recommend others to consult with Mary and take advantage of Revive's great new client discount!– Jessica

I just wanted to say that after my appt with Haley last Friday, I was feeling super optimistic that I could have clear skin again. After my chemical peel, my skin continued to get clearer and clearer. I started using the EltaMD Skin Care lotions and really love them.
