Botulinum Toxin Type A
Botulinum toxin (Type A) is an injection that interferes with the nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract. The 4 botulinum toxins that are used today in the United States are Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. All of the neurotoxins have similar efficacy and duration. This type of injection lessens and smooths the look of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive movements on the face in areas such as between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and horizontal forehead creases. Botulinum toxin is also used cosmetically to balance facial asymmetry and relax tight neck bands, as well as medically to reduce perspiration and to treat migraine headaches, muscle spasticity, and TMJ discomfort.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is made up of a number of proteins, cytokines and other bioactive factors that are the foundation for natural wound healing. Faster and improved healing is possible when platelet concentration is increased with PRP. Three plasma proteins fibrin, fibronectin, and vitronectin all contribute to the healing process.
Exploration and the study of the use of PRP began in the 1970’s, but was limited due to the high cost of equipment to do the testing and procedures. In the 1990’s, a number of studies and reports were published the healing benefits of PRP in the areas of maxillofacial dental, periodontal surgery, cosmetic surgery, and skin grafting. Two physicians associated with Stanford University, published the first human study about PRP for chronic tendon issues in 2006. This study concluded that a 93% pain reduction was evident at the two year follow up mark. High profile athletes, such as Hines Ward, Takashi Saito, and Tiger Woods, attribute their fast healing from injuries and quick return to the playing field to PRP.
At Reviv Medical Spa, Dr. Misle began experimenting with PRP for hair loss over 6 years ago when she began reading studies about athletes traveling abroad to heal torn ligaments faster. Dr. Misle noticed measurable and visible results in this experimental procedure reversing hair loss and immediately integrated the treatment into the medical practice.
The treatment involves injecting the scalp with human growth factors, compounds in the body that signal cells to heal and grow. PRP is plasma that has been concentrated with platelets. These concentrated platelets contain proteins and growth factors which help increase circulation to the hair follicles, stimulate the follicles to grow, and even thicken the hair shaft. It is believed that the introduction of platelets through platelet rich plasma can actually stimulate the growth of follicles, thereby reversing hair miniaturization seen in androgenetic alopecia and even preventing hair loss.
After a small amount of blood is taken from the patient to produce the PRP, the scalp is cleaned and numbed with local anesthetic. The blood is centrifuged to generate the PRP and then is injected directly into the areas of hair loss. PRP Hair Restoration is a safe choice for many patients with hair loss, and especially important for patients that have had hair transplants.

The most common treatment areas are the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Sciton MicroLaser Peel
A MicroLaser Peel works to improve skin texture to give a more youthful appearance by removing a thin layer of skin. By removing the top layer of skin, the skin is able to shed and results in a healthier appearance with reduced wrinkles and improved skin color evenness.
Common skin conditions treated with a MicroLaser Peel include: mild wrinkles, scars, keratosis, sun damage (e.g., freckles), and pigment irregularities. The most common treatment areas are the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Sciton Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL)
A Sciton Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) applies tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize results and reduce downtime. The Sciton Halo laser allows for great improvement in skin tone, skin texture, redness and pigmentation. The laser allows patients to have both mild and aggressive treatments. The non-ablative component of the laser penetrates into the dermis (deeper layer of the skin) and removes pigmentation and coagulates blood vessels that cause redness-reducing overall brown and red skin discoloration. It also stimulates new collagen production as the coagulated dermal tissue is replaced, improving skin thickness and density while tightening the skin and contracting the pores. The ablative component of Sciton Halo fractionally resurfaces the epidermis (outer layer) for improvement in overall skin quality. It is recommended that a HALO skin treatment is performed once every 6 months as maintenance.
