Our 5 Most Popular Medical Spa Treatments

Woman considering medial spa treatments in Ankeny, IA

From BOTOX® Cosmetic to dermal fillers to CoolSculpting®, our medical spa in Ankeny, IA, has everything you need to look and feel your best. While everyone’s treatment protocol is as unique as they are, a few treatments have made their way to the top of just about every wish list.

These 5 treatments are the ones our clients can’t live without. They’re also great first-time treatments for beginners. If you’re new to med spa treatments, we recommend giving these a try at your next visit.

HALO™ Laser Skin Resurfacing

HALO is hard to beat when it comes to laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. A first-of-its-kind hybrid fractional laser, Halo combines ablative and nonablative laser wavelengths to maximize your results while minimizing your downtime.

We recommend a HALO session once a year to keep your skin looking fresh and fabulous. Expect a few days of redness and flaking followed by increased collagen production and that famous “HALO glow.”

Forever Young™ BBL

Both gentle and effective, this light-based treatment is our go-to for sun damage, signs of aging, and more. Pulses of broadband light break up uneven pigmentation in the skin, minimize redness, and stimulate ongoing collagen production for a more youthful look.

BBL is so gentle on the skin that you won’t need to plan for virtually any time away from your usual routine. Opt for this treatment twice a year to stay on top of sun damage and keep signs of aging at bay.

BOTOX Cosmetic

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments worldwide (and at our med spa, too), BOTOX is the champ when it comes to smoothing away dynamic wrinkles. These lines—caused by frowning, squinting, and raising your eyebrows—fade away in days when treated with this tried-and-true anti-aging injectable.

BOTOX lasts about 3 months, so we recommend stopping in quarterly for a quick touch-up. It takes just a few minutes!

Dermal Fillers

With formulations created for different areas of the face, dermal fillers are one of the most versatile tools we have for addressing signs of aging and elevating facial contours. With fillers, you can minimize lines, plump up your lips, refine your cheekbones, and even get a nonsurgical butt lift.

Each filler lasts for a slightly different amount of time, but it’s safe to count on getting injections once or twice a year to maintain your enhanced new look.


It’s no wonder CoolSculpting and its fat-freezing abilities are so popular worldwide. This nonsurgical body contouring treatment minimizes excess fat by freezing and destroying fat cells, all without any needles or anesthesia. Revive is proud to offer the new and improved CoolSculpting Elite along with the expertise of Central Iowa’s only CoolSculpting Masters.

You may only need a single treatment to see great results from this treatment, but some people need an extra session to fully slim down their targeted area. Once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good—no touch-up treatments needed.

Relaxed atmosphere with caring and hospitable staff. Procedures virtually painless with great results.

Tawnya was able to see me regarding some moles causing me concern. She removed the moles and sent them to the lab. As soon as my results were posted, she contacted me immediately with the news that everything was ok. I will be seeing her for regular checkups.

Dr Stef was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help our daughter out with some skin issues. I can’t recommend this place enough!

Thank you so much for your kind review! We can't wait to see you again!

My fiancé and I are new to the Ankeny Iowa area and I needed to see a dermatologist. First and foremost, it is a fantastic environment. Not cluttered, clean, professional and polite. I saw Nikki Roetman the first visit. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Very well versed outside of normal dermatology. The second visit I was blessed with the help of Dr Stef Gatica, she was very fun to work with. We were able to joke and have a good laugh. With the help of Aubrey I have had nothing but pleasant professional visits. Highly recommended to go hear and get taken care of the right way

Hi, Megan. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We truly appreciate it!

I’m an NP that recently did a Botox training with Dr. Stef. She is very knowledgeable and skilled-an excellent resource for all things skin! I learned so much. I appreciated the 1:1 training. The day was fast paced which allowed for several opportunities for me to inject but also personalized enough for me to gain the skills to inject independently. I highly recommend.

Thank you Katie! I had a lot of fun with you and you did a great job! Can't wait to watch you grow in your skills!

Thank you Dr Stef for coming to our office to share your wealth of knowledge and skills. Your years of experience and technique methods that you offered during our training was amazing.
