Annual Checks & Skin Cancer Screenings

Annual skin exams are an important part of keeping your skin healthy and catching concerns early. During these checks, we examine moles on your face and body to screen for signs of skin cancer.

When needed, we perform biopsies and send samples to dermatopathologists to make sure you get an accurate and helpful diagnosis. This can often be done via shave biopsy, which causes as little damage to your skin’s cosmetic appearance as possible.

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

Business Owner replied on Feb 9, 2022:

Thank you very much! It was a pleasure meeting both of you!

I saw Nikki at the clinic and she was so thorough and sweet! She makes you feel comfortable and goes over everything with you in detail. Highly recommend!

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.

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

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.

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Thank you Melanie! It was so nice to meet all of you!

I had such a great day training with Stephanie on jawline and chin filler. It was my first time using cannula’s as well and she did an amazing job teaching and training. What a fun Friday

Thank you Lizzie! You have been a lot of fun to work with! - Dr. Stef

A friend with glowing skin recommended me to Revive to see skincare specialist Stephenie Ganske. I went in for my consultation, and began my skincare prescription. Within days my skin was already beginning to glow! Friends and family were commenting on my skin, asking me if I had on makeup ( I did not) what I was using! I coined the term "GanskeGlow" to describe my results. Stephenie is a guru, and I can not thank her enough for my renewed skin and of course that "GanskeGlow" 😉

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Vivette, thank you for your kind words! We love the term "GanskeGlow" that you came up with! Can't wait to see you soon!

I had a great experience at Revive! Dr Stef is very thorough and so easy to talk to about your skin health concerns. I am a permanent clinical Dermatology patient for sure!

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:
