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!

Everyone at Revive is so professional and kind. They are so informative and knowledgeable. I have never felt any pressure to do anything, if anything, they tend to start small and make sure their clients are happy and getting what they want! They are amazing! I cannot say enough great things about them!

– Ellen

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!

I love the privacy of the relaxation area so we aren't awkwardly sitting together in the open lobby, especially when I was nervous before my first appointment! Oh, and your treatment rooms are awesome. I've been to specialists' offices that were tiny and cramped in comparison.

Revive was initially recommended to me by friends, I've been a client now for a few different treatments. I received Dysport from Katie and Kisha and they are both amazing!

Completely in love with my Dysport results I received from Kisha! She is very knowledgeable, professional, sweet, and personable!

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!
