Meet Registered Nurse Melanie Carlson

What made you want to become an aesthetics nurse? 

Aesthetic nursing is the reason I decided to go back to school to get my Master’s degree in Nursing! I wanted to have a positive impact on patients by combining my medical knowledge with artistic skills. I love making people feel confident in their own skin. 


What treatments do you specialize in?

I specialize in neurotoxin and laser treatments. They offer so many benefits and are the key to healthy aging skin! 


What is your favorite treatment to receive/one you always recommend to others?

My favorite treatment to receive and recommend to others is no doubt micro-needling! Most people are a candidate and the results are amazing.  


What’s your favorite skincare product (Brand) and why? 

My favorite skincare Brand is Alastin. The brand is backed by science and very effective. I love the Regenerating Skin Nectar for its healing properties. 


What do you love about working at Revive?

Revive offers endless training opportunities. There is something new to learn every day whether it’s from coworkers, trainers, or new research presented to us. 


What is one piece of advice you always give to clients? 

One piece of advice I always give to clients is that healthy skin starts from the inside. A healthy diet and exercise routine go a long way for not only your skin but overall health and happiness! 

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I love to spend time at the beach or anywhere outdoors. I moved from Chicago so I love enjoying the San Diego weather!
