WHAT IS SKINVIVE?
Skinvive™ by Juvéderm® is a gel like injectable that is used to improve skin smoothness and hydration on the cheeks. Skinvive™ is designed to improve the cheeks’ smoothness without adding volume like fillers do. Skinvive™ doesn’t just smooth out skin — it simultaneously enhances hydration and texture leaving you with an effortless glow every day. Because Skinvive™ is not a volume-adding filler, the gel focuses all its energy on rejuvenation, creating results like no other. Best of all, this is the first and only hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable with FDA approval for this indication. Skinvive™ is FDA-approved to treat the cheeks, but it can also be used off label for upper lip, fine smile lines, cobblestoning of the skin of the chin, and even the neck.
Before your appointment, notify your doctor of any medication you are on to avoid excessive bruising with injections. Your provider will begin by cleaning your face with an antibacterial wipe. Next, the gel will be injected into the superficial dermis with numerous minuscule injection sites equidistant across the target area. These small injections are a part of the microdroplet technique intended to create a uniform distributed result. The entire process will take less than 30 min and your results will last approximately six months.
RESULTS AND RECOVERY
After treatment, you will see the injection points for a few hours on the surface of the skin. Shortly after the injection points fade, you’ll begin to notice the results. Initially, there may be some redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness, but this will subside within the first week. You will notice a smoother skin texture, softening of fine lines, improvement in the cobblestoning of the skin, and a hydrated glow after those first few days of healing.
