Revived Aesthetics, the IV bar at 700 Garlington Road, Greenville, quietly opened a month ago and will celebrate its grand opening July 19.
Revived Aesthetics, which is a partnership between Greenville attorney John Mussetto and pediatric registered nurse Jennifer Valentine, offers intravenous vitamin infusions that deliver replenishing fluids, vitamins, and minerals directly to the bloodstream, along with other treatments, such as microblading, a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing procedure.
IV therapy is a growing trend among athletes and those who may have partied a little too hard the night before. It is used for sports recovery, hydration, cold and flu recovery, migraine treatment, and as a hangover cure, among other uses.
Mussetto says the planned fall 2017 opening was delayed due to construction hang-ups and the shortage of IV bags, which are manufactured in Puerto Rico. When Hurricane Maria hit the island, the ongoing damage and lack of infrastructure caused an international medical crisis as Puerto Rico is a leading manufacturer of the bags used to deliver fluids and drugs in hospitals and wellness clinics.
The bags became available later this spring, allowing Revived Aesthetics to open after its staff of registered nurses was trained, Valentine says. A medical doctor, Dr. Tonya Washington, an internal medicine physician, is also available for consultation and will check in regularly on the clinic.
Mussetto says future expansion plans include opening additional locations in the area.
“We want to bring hydration to the Upstate,” he says.
Hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Sunday by appointment only.
