How does RéVive set itself apart from other dermatology-based skincare brands?
My expertise as a Plastic Surgeon allows me to view the skin from a 3D perspective vs. Dermatologists who view skin from a 2D perspective. For example RéVive was one of the first brands to address volume loss in the face as a key sign of aging with its best-selling
Intensité Volumizing Serum product. That launch was so successful that we introduced
Intensité Volumizing Eye Serum this past year which has also been a top seller for RéVive.

EGF is one of the bio-engineered ingredients in Renewal Epidermal Science (RES) technology, the cornerstone of the RéVive brand. RES technology is a collection of bio-engineered ingredients inspired by patented and Nobel Prize winning technology to help regenerate the appearance of youthful skin.
