“Starting early with regular maintenance treatments is far better than trying to fix the damage after it’s happened.”
We asked Registered Nurse Amy a few questions about her role at Revive and how she can help you achieve your desired look.
1) What is your education?
I have a BSN, and before working at Revive Med Spa I was NICU nurse for 19 years. I became an Aesthetic Nurse 11 years ago.
2) What is your favorite area to treat or procedure to do?
I love Sculptra for treating the temple area and all over global rejuvenation. I love any sort of cheek augmentation (by injecting fillers in the cheeks). The reason I love this treatment so much is that it’s not an obvious change to the face, it’s just subtle and you look refreshed – like you had a great sleep or a good vacation!
3) What’s your favorite product and why?
Definitely SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum. I was skeptical for a long time but I started using it regularly and when I ran out, I noticed a big difference in my skin. I felt like my skin looked dull and muddy when I didn’t use it. It’s a gamechanger!
4) What do you love about working at Revive Med Spa?
I love everything! The whole atmosphere is very upbeat and I really love the owners. I’ve worked for them since 2008 and I like and respect them. I also really like the people I work with and of course, I love the clients!
5) What’s a fact most clients don’t know that you wish they did?
Starting early and doing smaller and regular treatments over the years will pay back in huge dividends because you’re not trying to pick everything up all at once. I always tell my clients that in aesthetic medicine, it’s far easier to maintain your looks instead of trying to rewind them.
6) What do you wish you would’ve known about skincare when you were younger?
Sunscreen should be part of EVERYONE’S skincare routine – and that means starting young! I was really lucky because I grew up in Chicago and didn’t have the daily sun like here in San Diego, so my sun damage is minimal. But that’s why you should always wear sunscreen!
