Bergdorf Goodman: ReVive is the first and only skin care line developed by a plastic surgeon. What inspired you to create this product?
Dr. Brown: A lot of people wonder why a plastic surgeon would ever suggest anything but surgery as a solution to aging skin. But after many years running a successful plastic surgery practice, I realized that that many of my patients who were requesting invasive cosmetic procedures actually needed to rejuvenate lackluster skin and that there was no surgical procedure that could accomplish this goal. So in 1997, I merged my clinical expertise with Nobel prize winning science to create a line of skincare products with the goal of revitalizing skin’s renewal process for younger looking skin.
BG: You started ReVive in 1997. What would you say is the most valuable lesson you’ve learned throughout the years?
Dr. Brown: I think the two most important things in skin care and in life are: Everything in moderation – from you diet, to exercise, to your skincare routine — and to find things in life that make you happy and do more of those things.
BG: What’s a quick fix for a woman to improve her skin?
Dr. Brown: The quickest fix is simple and adequate moisturization.
BG: Your product is one of the most technologically advanced and innovative products on the market. What’s next for ReVive?
Dr. Brown: I can’t tell all my secrets 🙂
BG: What do you feel is the most important skin care regimen every BG woman should be practicing?
Dr. Brown: Without question THE MOST IMPORTANT anti-aging cream anyone can use is adequate sunscreen to protect you from the sun.
