What is SKINVIVE?
SKINVIVE by Juvéderm is an injectable facial treatment curated to add hydration directly to the skin. SKINVIVE is a hyaluronic acid filler injection that is injected into the skin’s dermis. This microdroplet injection aims to hydrate and brighten the skin on the face while smoothing the cheeks. This is the first and only FDA-approved injection to improve skin hydration and texture.
SKINVIVE increases the natural production of aquaporin, a protein that aids in water flow into and out of cells. This improves the skin’s natural hydration, enhancing the look of the skin by brightening, smoothing, and plumping the skin. This treatment uses a hyaluronic gel to condition, hydrate, and replenish the skin’s moisture components. Hyaluronic acid has a strong water-binding capacity and increases the production of the protein’s elastin and collagen, providing you with more youthful-looking skin.
SKINVIVE is intended to improve the overall look of the skin. SKINVIVE benefits the skin by providing a long-lasting glow, plumping the skin, improving hydration, and reducing the number of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment requires little to no downtime and is minimally invasive.
Who is a Candidate?
SKINVIVE is an excellent option for individuals looking to improve their skin’s overall appearance. This injection is formulated with the naturally occurring substance hyaluronic acid, offering minimal reactions and side effects. This treatment is ideal for men and women in generally good health who want to relieve fine lines and increase their skin’s hydration. This treatment is a great, long-lasting facial rejuvenating option with results similar to lasers and other topical skin treatments. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and ages.
Before your procedure, it is essential to consult with a medical professional to determine if this is the correct procedure for your needs. During a consultation, your doctor will review your medical history and goals and create a treatment plan curated for you.
Before the procedure, no numbing is required because the hyaluronic gel includes a small amount of the local anesthetic lidocaine to increase comfort from within the skin during the injection.
During the injection, your injector will carefully insert a tiny needle into the targeted areas of the face, injecting the product into the middle of the dermis to rejuvenate the skin from below the surface. Our medical practitioners are highly skilled and well-trained.
After your SKINVIVE treatment, you may experience mild redness, bruising, and swelling near your injection sites. These side effects will fade within days and leave you with results that you love.
Most patients who have received SKINVIVE injections notice results lasting six months, with some lasting nine or more months. For optimal results, it is recommended that patients receive two doses. This lasting treatment hydrates the skin more efficiently than lotions.
After your treatment, you can resume your usual daily activities as normal. Results emerge immediately after treatment, stimulating collagen, elastin, and aquaporin production. Your long-lasting results will yield months of radiance, hydration, and smoothness.
