What is SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm®?
SKINVIVE™ is the latest injectable product from Juvederm®, a renowned dermal filler brand known for their hyaluronic-acid injectables. SKINVIVE™ is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment that is designed to help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. When injected into the cheeks and surrounding mid-face area, it improves the smoothness of the cheeks while also producing a glowing and refreshed appearance. SKINVIVE™ hydrates the skin from within to provide results in a single treatment session.
What Makes SKINVIVE™ Different from Other Dermal Fillers?
SKINVIVE™ is technically a dermal filler, as it uses a hyaluronic acid formula to restore hydration to the skin. However, SKINVIVE™ is not designed to change the shape of your face or your skin volume. This directly contrasts with the goal of typical dermal filler treatments. Instead, SKINVIVE™ acts as a powerful moisturizer beneath the skin, improving cheek smoothness and hydration for a radiant glow.
How Much Does SKINVIVE™ Cost?
SKINVIVE™ treatments are individualized to create a unique plan based around your treatment goals. Because of this, the cost of treatment with SKINVIVE™ will vary. If you’d like more information about pricing or have any questions or concerns about the procedure, schedule a one-on-one consultation with us at About Face Skin Care. We also offer financing options to help make this and other procedures more affordable.
Am I a Candidate for SKINVIVE™?
SKINVIVE™ is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types and colors, and is approved for adults over the age of 21. If you’re interested in improving the radiance and texture of the cheeks, you may be a good candidate for SKINVIVE™. However, it is not recommended for patients allergic to lidocaine, or those who have had previous allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid fillers. The best way to determine your candidacy for SKINVIVE™ is to schedule a consultation at About Face Skin Care so we can evaluate your needs and treatment goals.
How Is SKINVIVE™ Performed?
Before SKINVIVE™ is injected into the treatment areas, a numbing agent is first applied to help minimize discomfort. Then, the SKINVIVE™ formula will be injected with a small needle by our Master Level Cosmetic Injectors. The treatment takes approximately 15 minutes to administer.
What Is Recovery Like After SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm®?
There is little to no downtime after SKINVIVE™ injections. Side effects are typically quite minor, and may include redness, swelling, and/or bruising. In most cases, these side effects resolve within one week. Still, patients will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. The only exceptions are that patients should avoid strenuous exercise, sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages for the first 24 hours after treatment.
How Long Will My SKINVIVE™ Results Last?
SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® is clinically proven to last up to six months with optimal treatment. Therefore, many patients choose to receive touch-up sessions around the 6-month mark to prolong their results. This will help patients maintain smooth, glowing cheeks year-round.
