Skincare Road Map

What is the best way to get radiant, youthful skin that looks healthy and fresh year-round? Follow our skincare road map—a skincare plan developed at our Ankeny dermatology clinic and spa serving Des Moines, IA.

Complete with an in-depth analysis and a recommended treatment schedule, it’ll get you on track for stunning skin that never loses its glow.

Your VISIA Skin Analysis

We’ll start with a VISIA skin analysis, which uses cross-polarized light to photograph skin concerns we can’t always see with the naked eye. These include:

  • Dark spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Texture
  • Pores
  • Sun damage
  • Red areas

It will also give you a “skin age,” depending on how your concerns compare to different age groups. Based on that info, it can even predict which signs of aging you’re most likely to face in the future.

We use the results of your analysis to create a customized skincare plan aimed at addressing your specific concerns. Over time, we’ll perform follow-up scans so you can see for yourself the difference your routine has made in your skin.

While everyone’s skin is unique and requires an individual treatment plan, following this road map is an excellent way to make sure you look your best all year.

Daily

Products from SkinMedica®, ZO® Skin Health, and more will give your skin a healthy glow now and protect it from damage in the future.

Monthly

The gentle and refreshing HydraFacial only takes 30 minutes and leaves your skin cleansed, exfoliated, cleared, and infused with powerful serums.

Regular dermaplaning treatments will keep facial peach fuzz at bay and prevent the buildup of dead skin cells and debris.

Quarterly

We recommend BOTOX treatments every 3 months or so, as that’s how long it typically takes the wrinkle-reducing injectable to wear off.

Peel away damage, pigmentation, dead skin cells, and more with esthetician-administered chemical peels.

Biannually

Forever Young BBL uses broadband light to visibly reverse signs of aging, including fine lines, uneven pigmentation, vascular lesions, and more.

Dermal Fillers

Some dermal fillers begin to dissolve and lose their volume after about 6 months, so it’s best to touch up your results twice a year.

Annually

The ultimate anti-aging laser at Revive, HALO boosts ongoing collagen production for smoother, younger-looking skin.

Dermal Fillers

Other dermal fillers last a bit longer, so you can go about a year before needing a little more volume injected.

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:

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.

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:
