Love it. LOVE IT, not.

What you once loved... doesn't have to last forever!
Did your tattoo seem attractive in your 20s, but not so attractive today? Or is your tattoo a permanent reminder of what was just a temporary feeling? If so, you are not alone! That change of heart, or feeling of regret, is the #1 reason why people seek tattoo removal.

Tattoo Removal

Fortunately, de-inking has progressed from a so-so, time-consuming process to a much faster, safe, and effective method. Finally, that unforgettable tattoo can be forgotten with the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available on the market - enlighten! The Cutera Enlighten™ Laser is the most advanced laser system for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions. 

BUT wait... there's MORE!

Revive utilizes the Cutera Enlighten Laser along with the Zimmer Cryotherapy Chiller to ensure great results in a reasonable amount of time, and with minimized discomfort.

ABOUT ZIMMER CRYO CHILLER
Say goodbye to laser treatment discomfort, minimize pain, and protect against thermal injury with this new and improved skin cooling device! The Zimmer Cryo delivers cold air as low as -30°C. The device is intended to minimize pain and thermal injury by providing topical anesthetic relief during laser treatments. The system can assist in a variety of applications and is particularly useful with laser procedures. Unlike other cooling methods, such as contact cooling, cryogen spray, or ice packs, Zimmer Cryo can cool the epidermis before, during, and after the laser energy has been applied, without interfering with the laser beam.

HOW DOES IT WORK?! The laser tattoo removal procedure, with ZIMMER Cryo, begins with the cooling of the designated treatment area for approximately 20 to 60 seconds. Once cooled, the laser tattoo removal procedure begins using the Enlighten Laser by Cutera.  Throughout the tattoo removal process, cold air is directed from the Zimmer Chiller, alongside the laser. The Zimmer skin cooling device helps to minimize pain and protect against thermal injury from laser procedures.

Q: WHAT IS ENLIGHTEN?

enlighten is the most advanced laser system for the effective and safe removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.

Q: HOW DOES ENLIGHTEN LASER TATTOO REMOVAL DIFFER FROM OTHER LASER TATTOO REMOVAL OPTIONS?

enlighten features extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses which efficiently and quickly break down the ink particles in tattoos. A 'picosecond' is one trillionth of a second and is 1,000 times shorter than the 'nanosecond' pulses used in existing lasers for tattoo removal. Picosecond laser pulses have been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions than traditional laser used historically in the past.

Q: HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

The total number of treatments varies depending on the composition, age of the tattoo, depth, and the color of the ink, as well as the size of the tattoo. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions, and your provider can give you a better idea of the total number of treatments needed during your complimentary consultation and once your treatments begin.

Q: WHY ARE MULTIPLE SESSIONS REQUIRED?

Tattoo ink is deposited deep in the skin. In order to reach all of the ink in the skin, multiple treatment sessions are needed for clearance. The depth, size, and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed.

Q: WILL THE TATTOO COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR?

In many cases, yes. However, it is very important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others. Treatment goals will be determined during your consultation. 

Q: IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?

Patients compare the procedure to a rubber band being snapped against their skin. Revive utilizes the Zimmer Cryotherapy Chiller to ensure great results in a reasonable amount of time, with minimized discomfort. The Zimmer Cryo delivers cold air as low as -30°C. The device is intended to minimize pain and thermal injury by providing topical anesthetic relief during laser treatments. Unlike other cooling methods, such as contact cooling, cryogen spray, or ice packs, Zimmer Cryo can cool the epidermis before, during, and after the laser energy has been applied, without interfering with the laser beam.

Q: DOES IT MATTER WHERE I GO?

YES! Chances are, your tattoo artist told you that the difference between a great tattoo and a poor tattoo is the artist. The same goes for tattoo removal. The effectiveness of the removal all depends on the experience and the skill of the provider and the techniques they use.

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! On my last visit, I had a consultation for lip injections. At my consultation, Kisha provided me with Restylane Kysse lip injections. Kisha is a true artist! I am completely obsessed with my lips! Kisha was so informative, knowledgeable, and sweet!

From the attention to detail when checking in, the beautiful space to relax in prior to the appointment, and the incredibly comfortable atmosphere for the facial. I love every moment.

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

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

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

I had a 60-minute sports massage with Angela. She was amazing! Very knowledgeable and super friendly. I can't say enough good things.

– Marsha

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

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

Tattoo Removal with Lisa was lovely and relaxing. She went through a thorough consultation so I knew what to expect. I'm extremely happy with the process and results after just one treatment! I highly recommend Revive and Lisa for any tattoo removal needs. Thank you THANK YOU!

– Ann

I have been extremely satisfied with my experiences at Revive! The front desk staff is extremely friendly when you arrive. Jodi, who I receive my Dysport injections from, is SO nice and very knowledgeable! My questions never go unanswered!

– Rachel

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.
