Revive Lifestyle Medicine offers laser hair removal, skin firming and microneedling procedures, facials, chemical peels, and injectables such as Botox! We are here to walk you through your options to meet your skincare goals and needs.
Most people forget that our skin is one of the most important organs of the body (and largest). Keeping your skin healthy has more than just the added benefits of a youthful appearance. Your skin is responsible for keeping your body temperature even, protecting you from UV rays and external bacteria and other harmful agents, and producing important nutrients such as Vitamin D. As we age, some of those functions become compromised, which affects your appearance, your confidence, and your overall health.
Revive Lifestyle Medicine is here to walk you through your options to meet your skincare goals and needs. We want you to leave our office feeling confident with radiant skin, and we also want you to know that your skin is doing everything it needs to in order to keep you healthy and happy.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most common use of aesthetic medical lasers. It yields maximum results with minimal discomfort, giving you the smooth skin you’ve always wanted without the pain of waxing or the inconvenience of shaving. IPL (intense pulsating light) lasers emit varying wavelengths to target hair follicles, removing hair and preventing its growth over time.
Most patients see results after one session, but for full hair removal, multiple sessions are required.
Commonly Treated Areas:
Revive Lifestyle Medicine is proud to use Viora’s patented IPL, RF, and VnDYag laser technologies to give patients a clinically proven, safe, and painless skin firming solution. Viora is a non-surgical treatment that offers 100% natural-looking results for the entire body, including facial areas. Viora’s cooling technology with IPL and Yag lasers provide the ultimate in comfort during your laser procedures.
Our laser services include laser hair removal, spider vein removal, vascular lesion removal, age-spot treatments, IPL photofacials, Yag Skin Rejuvenation, Refit Laser Skin TIghetning, and Laser Body Countoring.
When the laser by RF (radiofrequency) warms the deep layer of your skin, your body's natural wound healing response activates, causing collagen changes in the skin, effectively firming your skin with minimal risk of infection or scarring. This results in fat loss , skin elasticity restoration and a tighter, smoother appearance.
The word “microneedling” usually causes eyebrows to raise in concern, but this trending treatment option is an effective, minimally invasive technique used to improve the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. It requires little to no downtime for recovery and is usually less painful than getting your eyebrows waxed at the salon.
Microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, triggering the remodeling of collagen and elastin. The result is beautiful, youthful skin without plastic surgery or injections.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is our favorite add-on for maximizing Microneedling results. Your own growth factors are harvested by a simple blood draw and applied and injected back into the body for increased collagen remodeling.
Want to upgrade? At Revive we use both CoreCyte and AmnioCyte cells on top of Co2 Laser and Skin Pen Procedures. Why? These cells, from placenta and cord blood contain the highest density of growth factors and mesenchymal cells that promote tissue growth, restoration, and reduce healing times. Very few clinics in Arkansas provide aesthetic services of this caliber.
Brand Loyal? We have you covered.
Revive Lifestyle Medicine is proud to offer patients Allergan, Merz, and Galderma products that deliver treatment options for a wide range of medical needs, with an emphasis in dermatology and aesthetics. These are the industry leaders in pharmaceutical injectables that produce the highest quality results for patients!
Juvéderm fillers are the industry standard for treating volume loss in the lips and cheek areas. Volume loss can be caused by multiple factors, including genetics and the natural aging process. Whether you’re looking for plumper limps or a subtle lift for your cheeks, we can walk you through your specific treatment needs so that you can be in and out of the office as fast as possible.
Radiesse is a Calcium based filler. We use Radiesse to restore volume in the cheeks and jawline. At Revive we consider this our “hardest worker.” Radiesse has a longer lifetime than hyaluronic acid fillers, lasting up to 18 months in some patients. Our favorite procedure with Radiesse is the non-surgical facelift where 2-3 syringes of this filler are used for total volume restoration in the face. Radiesse is also used in the hands to remove signs of aging. Don’t let your hands give away your age!
The Restylane family of fillers are our favorite for lips, perioral lines, and tear troughs. We use this filler in other areas too. Galderma’s filler line includes Restylane, Refyne, Defyne, and Lyft. We are obsessed with them all.
Botox is the leading treatment option for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Our office can get you in and out for treatments within a lunch break, and you’ll start to see results as soon as 24 hours after your first treatment. It’s a simple, easy solution that reduces the muscle contractions that cause crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Dysport is Galderma’s neurotoxin. Dysport is a smaller particle. At Revive we use this in conjunction with other treatments including Botox to increase effectiveness in some of the smaller creases and wrinkles.
Merz developed Xeomin in Europe. Xeomin is the #1 neurotoxin in Europe. We love Xeomin, as it is known as the “natural Botox.” When initiating neurotoxin therapies, we often suggest Xeomin for first timers as the likelihood of becoming “immune” to neurotoxin decreases with Xeomin compared to Botox and Dysport.
Kybella injections are the only proven injectable treatment option for “submental fullness,” commonly referred to as a double chin. Submental fullness is often a natural progression of aging and can usually persist even with a great diet and exercise. With a tailored treatment plan set up, you will see major results in every angle of your facial profile. The best part is that usually one treatment process will produce results that last a lifetime. Off label Kybella use includes areas of unsightly bra fat and lipomas.
Skin Therapeutic Facials
A variety of Skin Therapeutic products provide treatment options you’ve been looking for to help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. These facials vary in depth and are our most popular noninvasive skin rejuvenation option that is safe for all skin types and skin tones.
You’ll see serious results after just one session: a smoother complexion and younger looking, revitalized skin. Facials can be used for special events, however we highly suggest you use facials in your regular healthcare regimens. Skin is your largest organ.
Obagi Blue Peel
Obagi is one of our favorite skincare brands at Revive Lifestyle Medicine, and their Blue Peel never disappoints. This chemical peel reveals younger, brighter skin with every session. If you’re looking to reduce the appearance of blemishes or rough, uneven skin, this is a great treatment option for you.
The peel can be done at the office in the span of a lunch break and is the perfect option for someone who wants to give their skin a pick-me-up without needing the drastic results of some of our other treatment options.
Facts about CO2 Aesthetics
Removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method (columns of skin removed with surrounding tissue untreated to aid in healing).
Reduces age spots, deep wrinkles, texture irregularities, scarring (acne/trauma), stretch marks, and dull
CO2 is the best treatment for the most results with one treatment
If you have the time to heal (7-10 days), it is like having multiple non-invasive treatments at once.
CO2 Laser is an in-office procedure that may require pre and post medication and management (antibiotic, antiviral, pain management) Depending on the depth of the treatment.
This is the only treatment that will actually reduce pore size.
Q: How do you know if the CO2RE is right for you?
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30s or older with skin damage caused by exposure to the sun, aging, discoloration and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger-looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
Other candidates include those with acne scarring and stretch marks.
Q: What is the procedure like?
You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort very tolerable. For more aggressive, higher powered treatments, Lindsey Gillum, ARPN may decide to use a subcutaneous anesthetic. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.
Q: How many treatments will I need:
Generally, you will achieve significant improvement after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment, your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. Age spots and uneven skin texture will start to show immediate improvement
Q: How long do results last?
The durability of CO2RE results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age and how well you care for your skin. Lindsey Gillum, APRN and her staff will be happy to provide you with useful skin care tips to make your results last as long as possible.
Q: What can I expect after my procedure
Immediately following the procedure, you can expect a sensation similar to sunburn, which may last for several hours. In the days following treatment, you will experience peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process and may last seven to 10 days.
Q: What is the cost for a Co2re treatment?
Cost depends on the area being treated, the condition being treated and the aggressiveness of the treatments themselves. After a throughout consultation, Dr. Tanne will create a treatment plan to meet your personal needs. Her staff will help you understand your estimate.
+The Co2RE Laser Procedures includes pre- and post care visits; and the core products needed for after-care including Elta Gentile Cleanser, Post Procedure Balm, and Colorescience Post Care Kits.
The Syneron Candela Laser is the newest laser with Fractional technology. The pattern and variability of depth control of this laser is like driving a Ferarri. The benefit is that the patient will be more comfortable and there is less tissue destruction, faster healing times due to the pattern of the laser beams. (The come out in a random pattern, so one area of the skin doesn’t receive too much heat at the same time.).
Co2RE Intima: Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
CO2RE Intima Benefits:
Improved elasticity and comfort with intimacy
Improved sexual gratification
Correction of vaginal relaxation and tightness alike
Improvement and dryness and itching
Correction of stress urinary leakage
10-15 minute treatment including internal and external
Regardless of age, women can experience changes in vaginal wellness or appearance that can affect quality of life in unexpected ways, leading to unpleasant symptoms.
Women rarely have the chance to voice their concerns to their providers, and concerns relating to sexual or vaginal health often go undiscussed and untreated.
Many women feel it is natural to not enjoy sex.
Many women feel that there is not a solution to vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, inability to orgasm, or pain during intercourse.
Changes in vaginal tissue start occurring after childbirth, or in the 30’s.
Our bodies do go through natural changes as we age, and that can lead to reduced sexual satisfaction, embarrassment, and even a loss of self esteem.
Most patients report feeling that they wish they had completed this treatment series sooner and recommend this procedure to other women.
What does the data look like?
Recent results from a hospital-based trial, evaluating vaginal rejuvenation laser treatment on premenopausal women, shows positive results and a high patient satisfaction rating for cosmetic improvement and enhancement in sexual functioning
Why choose the CO2RE Intima?
Co2RE intima is the most sophisticated laser system available due to its ability to deliver specialized patterns and depths to the skin treated.
How many treatments does it take?
There are 3 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
Can CO2RE Intima treat the dryness, itching and pain associated with aging, menopause and reduced estrogen levels?
CO2RE Intima can remodel vaginal connective tissue to restore vaginal health. Your care provider will deliver gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall that stimulates a healing response and enhances moisture levels in the vaginal canal. This results in remodeling of the tissue fibers, thereby also restoring flexibility and shape. The procedure delivers both immediate and long-lasting relief in a painless, non-surgical, proven treatment.
Can CO2RE Intima be used for Vaginal Laxity? Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome?
Loss of vaginal sensation and tone can be a side effect of vaginal childbirth and aging. Over time, the vaginal wall and the entrance to the vaginal canal (Introitus), both which contain collagen fibers, can stretch and lose vaginal tissue tone and elasticity. The CO2RE Intima laser treatment results in a remodeling of these tissue fibers, thereby restoring flexibility and shape.
Can CO2RE Intima be used for modifying the appearance of the vaginal area?
The CO2RE Intima laser treatment can remodel labial and vulvar tissue fibers, restoring flexibility and shape. The treatment can also address dyschromia and skin pigmentation resulting in improved skin texture and tone.
Is the CO2RE Intima treatment right for me?
The CO2RE Intima is appropriate for women, who are experiencing a change in their gynecologic wellness, or who want to improve their genital appearance.
Will the procedure be covered by insurance?
The CO2RE Intima treatments are currently not covered by managed care as no processing code has been established.
Revive Lifestyle Medicine values a meaningful and reliable non-surgical treatment option for those changes related to normal aging and body processes. CO2RE Intima also offers maintenance options after having had a surgical procedure.
Our patients expect the best options for surgical and non-surgical procedures to help them regain vaginal tightness, vaginal health, sexual satisfaction and a more aesthetic youthful appearance.
The CO2RE Intima treatment finally represents an answer to many problems that women have been told over the years, by their physicians, are just "things that happen as we age.” Our bodies do go through natural changes as we age, and that can lead to reduced sexual satisfaction, embarrassment, and even a loss of self esteem. Up until now there have been few treatment options.
Treatment can improve overall functional vaginal health, increase lubrication, decrease discomfort with intercourse and helps decrease urinary leaks.
This type of laser vaginal treatment has been shown to cause immediate improvement in symptoms of vaginal atrophy, poor lubrication and improvement in sexual desire and function with as few as three treatments. CO2RE laser vaginal treatments will be performed in the privacy and comfort of our office.

Genova, Boston Heart Diagnostics, and Spectracell will bill your insurance company after receiving a co-pay. ZRT does not bill your insurance company for salivary testing. You can use an HSA to pay for specialty lab testing if deemed medically necessary by your provider.
Pathgroup Lab service is our major laboratory provider that is contracted with most major insurance carriers. We also have cash pricing available for most laboratory exams. It is important to understand that your individual insurance plan may not cover certain lab exams. We do our best within the billing process, however ultimately the responsibility is up to the patient to know what your insurance company does and does not cover.

IV or intravenous infusions replenish fluids and nutrients directly into the body and its target organs. When fluids or nutrients are introduced into the body through oral ingestion, these substances must undergo breakdown in the gastrointestinal tract. Under some conditions, we may prefer to have a higher density of nutrient or fluid intake that is only provided with intravenous delivery.
It is important to note that IV infusions are never to be a substitute for oral intake of fluids. These solutions are however a way to restore the body to peak performance, supplement nutrients, and offer an alternative solution for quick rehydration and nutrient repletion. IV Infusions offer relief from the side effects of common conditions such as common colds, seasonal allergies, fatigue, hangovers, extreme exercise, headaches, and sun exposure.
Why add vitamins and Nutrients to your drip?
IV infusions at Revive introduce fluids and essential elements such as vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and electrolytes directly into the body for direct absorption. Absorption of nutrients and minerals by the oral route are subject to degradation in the gastrointestinal tract.

Higher doses of vitamin C can also be used in adjunct therapy for Lyme disease and combating free radicals produced by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Vitamin C helps protect against chemical pollutants and bacterial toxins. Revive uses protocols developed from clinics outside of the state to offer a variety of Vitamin C uses.

Glutathione is naturally derived in the liver for phase II detoxification. When our body is bombarded with chemicals and toxins from the environment, the liver is responsible for ridding the body of heavy metals, toxins, and metabolites. Glutathione is the body’s most potent antioxidant. Glutathione is helpful in many neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, and Autism. Glutathione is often used as adjunct to our various IV therapies.

Hormone replacement therapy
The latest research states that over 5 million men experience hypogonadism in their lifetime, over 25 million men between the ages of 35-55 experiences a decline in testosterone, the major male hormone. Testosterone deficiency is associated with symptoms that affect a man’s quality of life these may include:
Lack of Energy
Being Less Assertive
Loss of Muscle Tone and Stamina

Different methods of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) include BioTE Pellet therapy and Topical Hormone Replacement. Providers at Revive prescribe Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for men, as there is a less chance of side effects from testosterone therapy such as blood clots, stroke risk, and heart disease, and cancers. The hormone structure of BHRT is chemically similar to the hormones that men naturally produce. Other prescriptions may be prescribed as adjuncts to your therapy. Testosterone therapy may be the first step to reviving your health and improving your quality of life. Take the BioTE quiz to see if you are a candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
