This review is long overdo. With tons of Med spas out there, everyone is trying to make their money and don't care if you have sensitive skin or are reactive to many products etc. they just need the money. At revive you will not get that feeling- I've had bad reactions to certain products and Revive has made every effort and accommodation to take care of me. The office manager, Christina is a gem- she truly cares about the clients and that's RARE- if you have an issue and express it, she will make sure to do what she can to remedy the situation- that's called top notch customer service and that's why I'm loyal to them. Kim (PA at mission valley) is one of the kindest, smartest, personable ppl I've ever met. Honestly- ask for her and you're in good hands. She knows I have sensitive skin and always offers samples/testers of the great products (Skin medica etc) to allow me to test on my skin before purchasing. Front desk girls are beautiful and sweet- you won't regret it. I've been to several Med spas in SD, and they've been rude, greedy, sneaky and inexperienced- customer service is a foreign concept apparently. Not at Revive- you will appreciate their customer service esp if you've been don't wrong at other places
Kathleen is THE BEST! Surgical cosmetic enhancement takes a creative eye to know how to sculpt 3 dimensional work, and that is what Kathleen does best! She has a sweet, loving personality, and hands down, the best (and most affordable in town) work I've come across. I brought a relative along with me, this was my second visit seeing Kathleen (first time in 2015), first time for my relative. I wanted my relative to sit and experience Kathleen's approach. She knows how to address concerns, answer questions, and inform you on what to expect, so you don't feel confused and lost on upkeep after an appointment. I love that I found someone who knows how to show professionalism and care for her patients/clientele. I look forward to my follow up next week that Kathleen offered, as my sisters wedding is coming up, and she wants to make sure everything is looking PERFECT for the day! Also if you're torn on picking a place, search through reviews, look whose name always pops up with all 5 star reviews!
I have been going here at least 5 years. Receptionist are very nice and attentive. I absolutely love Lucia for all my hair needs. I have curly hair, and it was hard to find someone who understood what I wanted. She takes the time to explain how to style and help me with shampoo/conditioning regiments. I recently decided to lighten my then horrendous dark box dye hair. Lucia recommend we do gradual process to get to where my hair is now. I have received so many good complements! And I failed to mention she did mine and my maid of honor makeup and hair a few years ago for my wedding day, and it was terrific! Definitely highly recommend Lucia and this Salon.
Mena was awesome! It was my first time with any procedure ever. This being Juvéderm Lip injections. I went around to a couple other salons and this place was the best. Super clean, very peaceful, staff is very pleasant.
I was a bit nervous to get my lips done since I had never gotten anything done. But Mena was incredibly patient and sweet. I took my boyfriend with me and she spoke to him the whole time. This to help me get through the procedure easier. My lips were great. The pain was a 3 out of 10. So not bad at all. I think it's the actual nerves more than anything.
I did my research for a whole week and I'm so happy I got to Mena and this salon. Will definitely be coming back! Thank you Mena!!!
Today I decided to try Voluma for a lifted younger appearance and Botox to help with my wrinkles around my eyes and forehead. I was seen by Amy and absolutely loved how she explained everything in great detail from the different types of injections out there to what i can expect. She was very patient and made me feel very comfortable during the entire procedure. She took 10 years off my face with voluma! Front desk staff was very nice and welcoming. Love this place!
Got my Botox done at revive cv and it was quick and easy! Both salons are beautiful and everyone is so sweet! Loved my results, she even told me I needed less units than I thought which I appreciated because that means the last place I went to...(about 8 months ago)...up-sold me for more than I needed. I'm only 26 so it's just preventative lol will be coming here from now on!
For all Blondes who know the struggle of maintaining soft healthy hair after bleaching, you can put all your trust with the stylist Kyle! Not only is he a color master but he also does an amazing job cutting! I came into this salon with skeptical expectations ( I've been looking for the perfect stylist for years ) and was surprised with how well he was able to literally revive my hair lol.
I have bleached long blonde hair that has been through quite a few hair coloring horror stories. With Kyle he made sure to fix the uneven spots from my previous coloring ( not even close to worth the 400$ I spent ) all at such reasonable prices. He really cares about making you happy and invites you to come back to fix anything not up to your standards ( which is a one in a billion chance with someone so talented ).
I actually live in San Francisco but will without a doubt be flying back to see Kyle every time I need something done.
What's also awesome about Kyle is that he travels once a month to LA for work. So, if you're not exactly in the SD area at the time you can meet him at other locations too.
Ultimately if you're looking for a stylist who you can put all your trust in and know you'll come out with movie star hair, definitely go with Kyle (He even styles it at the end like the movies).
