SKINVIVE by Juvéderm is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable to improve the skin smoothness of the cheeks. It is the first and only injectable of its kind. SKINVIVE increases skin hydration, providing a lasting glow for up to six months with optimal treatment. This treatment is designed to enhance the skin quality from within, reducing fine lines and promoting healthier-looking skin. Premier Aesthetic Dermatology offers personalized SKINVIVE injections to help you achieve a smooth, radiant complexion.

How does SKINVIVE work?

SKINVIVE by Juvéderm utilizes hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance in the skin that retains water, to enhance skin hydration and smoothness. When injected in microdroplet form into the dermis of the cheeks, HA attracts and holds water, improving the skin’s moisture levels. This increased hydration results in smoother, healthier-looking skin with reduced fine lines. Additionally, the microdroplet injectable technology ensures a uniform distribution of HA, promoting an even skin texture and a lasting glow.

What happens during the SKINVIVE treatment?

The SKINVIVE treatment begins with a consultation where your medical provider will assess your skin and discuss your goals. On the day of the treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and topical anesthesia may be applied to minimize discomfort. SKINVIVE by Juvéderm is then administered through intradermal microdroplet injections into the cheeks by your provider. These injections deliver hyaluronic acid into the dermis to promote skin smoothness.

You will feel a slight pinch or pressure during the injection, but the procedure is quick and causes little to no pain. Our medical providers ensure a precise and controlled administration for optimal results. The entire process is swift, usually completed within an hour, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately. The results appear over the next few days as your skin retains more moisture and the filler integrates into your skin.

What are the side effects of SKINVIVE?

SKINVIVE by Juvéderm is a minimally invasive treatment that involves minimal side effects. Common side effects include redness, lumps or bumps, swelling, bruising, pain, tenderness, firmness, discoloration, and itching at the injection site. Some patients may also experience minor bruising, tingling, or the temporary loss of sensation near the injection site. Most side effects are temporary and will resolve within a week.

Is there any downtime after SKINVIVE?

No, there is no downtime after a SKINVIVE treatment. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure. The treatment is quick, usually completed within an hour, and any side effects are temporary and resolve quickly. However, avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two to ensure optimal recovery.

When will I see the results?

The results of the SKINVIVE treatment appear immediately, but the initial side effects will keep you from appreciating them completely. The results gradually improve over several days as the side effects diminish and the filler integrates with your skin. Optimal results, including improved skin texture and reduced fine lines, are typically visible within 2 to 3 weeks.

How long do the results last?

The rejuvenating effects of SKINVIVE last up to six months with optimal treatment. Over this period, the hyaluronic acid microdroplets continue to hydrate and smooth the skin. Your body will eventually metabolize the filler, following which you’ll need maintenance treatments. Most individuals can maintain the results with two sessions per year.
