Our Facial Services
Our clients report significantly improved skin texture, plumpness, and tone following a single Vampire procedure! The skin tightening effects of the treatment continue to occur over a 3-month period following the facial and last up to a couple of years. At RevVive facials in Friendswood we use combinations of treatment with radiofrequency (Tripollar) or ultrasound (Ulthera) can lead to significantly amplified results as well.
While the Vampire facial leads to significant rejuvenation in just a single treatment, some clients opt to undergo a series of three Vampire facials; when done in a series, we recommend spacing treatments every 4-6 weeks.

Dermaplaning is a simple and painless skin rejuvenation technique. The procedure exfoliates the dead skin cells and debris from the face, brightening the complexion. It also reduces the visibility of wrinkles, acne scars, and dullness. Dermaplaning is suitable for patients with rough skin.
Dermaplaning is a quick in-office treatment that concludes within 30 to 45 minutes. Steam is used to soften your skin and open up the pores. Once your pores are open, a small scalpel is used to scrape away the dead skin cells and surface hair from your face.
With dermaplaning facials in Friendswood your skin will look brighter, smoother, and more evenly-textured.
Dermaplaning should ideally be performed every 4 to 6 weeks because the skin regeneration cycle takes around 30 days.
The Hydrafacial takes the basic “facial” to a new level! It starts by deeply cleansing, exfoliating, and extracting impurities and dead skin cells utilizing a combination of microdermabrasion and suction; next, it layers antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acids to address concerns from uneven skin tone, to fine lines and wrinkles, to enlarged pores.
This is not your typical relaxing spa facial–this is a medical-grade facial that provides lasting results! Lasting approximately one hour, the client can expect what feels like a fine sandpaper-like microdermabrasion performed with a wet suction tip. The procedure begins by cleansing with intense hydration to open pores and dissolve impurities. Next follows exfoliation with a mild glycolic and salicylic acid peel, improving skin texture and tone. A vacuum tool known as the vortex-extraction nozzle is then used to pull blackheads and other lingering impurities out of the pores, and the facial concludes with LED light therapy to kill bacteria that may lead to breakouts. Immediately following the procedure, clients see a fairly immediate improvement in skin tone and clarity; many say it looks like they were “buffed and polished!” The skin appears very mildly red in some cases, but makeup can be applied following the procedure. Hydrafacials and other RevIVe facials in Friendswood are an especially nice way to treat yourself and brighten your complexion ahead of an event or function!
Hydrafacial boasts the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness, even skin tone and texture, unclog and reduce pore size–which can lead to decreased acne outbreaks, and obtaining an over-all skin “glow”, without downtime.
While results are seen in a single session, some clients schedule a series of three facials 4-6 weeks apart for advanced rejuvenation!
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles that ensure cell-to-cell communication, delivering regenerative medicines to different parts of the body. During exosome facials, these vesicles are concentrated on the face to activate the skin’s regenerative processes. As such, it activates skin cell regeneration to reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and textural irregularities.
Exosome facials Friendswood are performed using an aesthetic applicator. The esthetician applies topical anesthesia to ensure optimal comfort, anesthetizing the targeted areas. The applicator gently abrades the skin’s surface to deliver the exosomes and growth factors into the dermis. The entire procedure concludes within 30 minutes.
Exosome facials reverse the signs of aging, giving you smoother and more even-textured skin after multiple sessions. The treatment reduces pore size, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, brightens your overall complexion.
On average, patients need three sessions spaced one month apart for optimal results. The exosomes last in the body for 6 to 8 months after the final treatment, so you might need maintenance treatments once a year. However, the esthetician will recommend the ideal schedule for your specific needs.
While results from facials in Friendswood are seen in a single session, some clients schedule a series of three microneedling sessions 4-6 weeks apart for advanced rejuvenation!
Microneedling, regardless of “booster” chosen, results in smoother, firmer, and more even skin tone. By promoting collagen production, microneedling can even help reverse signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles), help fade acne or other scars (stretch marks), and leave the skin looking refreshed and more youthful.

When considering facial in Friendswood services, the most common indication for microdermabrasion is seeking a polished skin appearance. Especially when it is performed in a series, microdermabrasion can be utilized to treat fine lines, skin texture irregularities, superficial scars such as acne scars, and sun damage. It is a treatment often sought several days ahead of an event (wedding, party, reunion, etc.); especially when combined with a superficial enzyme peel and dermaplaning, the face looks glowing and smooth!
Can be performed as a single service for immediate improvement ahead of an event; to address specific issues, such as scarring and acne, a series of 3-6 treatments is generally recommended, scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.
Over time, and with exposure to gravity and UV light, our faces and necks accumulate damage in the form of “photoaging” and aging in general. Skin is composed of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. The dermis contains proteins, including collagen, elastin, and other important fibers, which affect skin’s strength and elasticity. UV radiation and oxidative stress injure these important proteins, leading to the accumulation of damage in the form of wrinkles, drooping skin, broken blood vessels, mottled pigment, and sun spots, while gravity leads to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, allowing skin to droop and sag. Of our many facials in Friendswood, chemical peels can help to rejuvenate this damage.
There are a number of acids employed in chemical peels, including various percentage strengths of glycolic acid (Neocutis peels), trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid, which will cause shedding of the superficial layers of skin with the emergence of fresh, new skin. The stronger the peel, the more the peeling, and the better the effect! Chemical peels soften fine lines and wrinkles, restore more even skin tone, and smooth away rough skin textures. Some peels are also formulated to prevent acne breakouts.
Of the Vi Peel line, different peels target different areas of concern:
- Vi Peel: great for fine lines and wrinkles and irregularity of skin tone/texture.
- Vi Peel Purify: for acne-prone skin, fine lines, and skin tone irregularity.
- Vi Peel Purify Precision Plus: a more intense treatment targeting acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin tone irregularity.
- Vi Peel Precision Plus: most intense “brightener and tightener” of the Vi Peel line.
As with our other facials in Friendswood, the client’s face and/or neck is first cleaned thoroughly. Next the chemical peel solution of choice is applied to the skin. For Neocutis peels, solution is applied for approximately 3-5 minutes; while the solution sits in place, clients report a slight burning, prickling, or stinging sensation. After an allotted time, a buffer solution is then applied, and the face is then washed clean. For Vi Peel, the peel solution is applied, and the patient is dismissed home after watching for approximately 5 minutes with a home care kit. The client will leave with instructions on removing the peel at home later that day. A post-Vi peel instruction guide will allow the client to determine if they want a more profound peeling effect by using “peel toilette” boosters at home, if desired. The entire visit will likely take less than 15 minutes.
A mild sunburn-like effect may be noticed following a Neocutis peel; it is safe to apply makeup following the procedure. Clients must avoid sun exposure for several days following the peel, and must be careful to apply sunblock in the weeks to follow to avoid sunburn. Following ViPeel facials in Friendswood, the treated skin will become very dry for approximately 1 week, with a sunburn-like appearance. Skin peels gradually and in small flakes over the 1-week period. Skin should be moisturized according to the take-home care kit. Maximum results are seen by week 4!
