What Is SKINVIVE?
For anyone looking to reverse the signs of aging while keeping their skin hydrated and refreshed, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is the perfect treatment. SKINVIVE is a smooth hyaluronic gel that can be injected 0below the surface of the skin to smooth and reduce fine lines while allowing the skin to maintain its natural level of moisture and softness. As the first and only hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable, our SKINVIVE treatment helps patients achieve an improved, glowing, hydrated complexion that lasts for up to half a year.
What Concerns Can SKINVIVE Address?
SKINVIVE can treat the following concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull-looking skin
- Dry skin
- Skin texture
- Dehydration in the cheeks
- Skin laxity
Who Is a Candidate for SKINVIVE?
The ideal candidates for our SKINVIVE treatment are adults who are at least 21 years of age and in overall good health. The best candidates who will benefit from SKINVIVE are those looking to restore hydration to their face, minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth out skin texture. SKINVIVE is a safe and effective treatment for people with all skin types. Candidates should be able to maintain realistic expectations regarding the appearance of their results.
If you have a bleeding disorder or if you are allergic to any of the materials used in dermal fillers and injectables, our SKINVIVE treatment will not be suitable for you. However, we are happy to recommend other Medical Aesthetics non-invasive treatments that can help hydrate your skin and reduce signs of aging.
How Long Does SKINVIVE Treatment Take?
Depending on where exactly your SKINVIVE is placed, the duration of your treatment may vary. However, on average, SKINVIVE does not take long to inject at all. The average patient can get SKINVIVE within 15 to 30 minutes.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Just like any other dermal filler, SKINVIVE comes with the following side effects:
- Bumps under the skin
These side effects are common and typically disappear within seven days after treatment. If you experience a more serious reaction after treatment, such as infection, allergic reaction, no improvement to dry skin, changes in skin sensation, or an abscess, contact us immediately.
What Is Recovery Like After SKINVIVE?
Quick, easy, and efficient, SKINVIVE does not require downtime, and many patients are able to return to their normal routines immediately after treatment. During recovery, you will experience common side effects such as redness and swelling, which should subside on their own within one week after treatment. For the first week, you should avoid activities such as rigorous exercise, prolonged exposure to the sun, and any other activities that may increase the risk of injury to the face.
After about a week, you should be able to see improvement in your skin’s complexion.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of SKINVIVE are made to last for up to six months. After this time, you may schedule a follow-up appointment to get your fillers refilled. Regular treatments every six months can help to keep your skin smooth, hydrated, and glowing!
