Whether due to sun exposure, scarring, or simply the aging process, skin quality is a common concern among our patients. The cheek area, in particular, often becomes rough and uneven, compromising the skin’s youthful glow.
Now, with SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM®, we have a novel solution to improve the skin quality of the cheeks. This innovative microdroplet injectable filler gives the cheeks a lasting glow after a single treatment session.
Read on to learn more about this exciting addition to our range of treatment options.
What is SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM®?
SKINVIVE™ is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic microdroplet injectable formulated to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks in adults over age 21. It consists of a hyaluronic acid gel with a small amount of local anesthetic. This injectable is approved for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI, so patients of all shades and tones can consider this treatment for smoother skin.
How Does SKINVIVE™ Work?
SKINVIVE™ is injected beneath the surface of the skin. The hyaluronic acid microdroplets improve the skin’s smoothness and hydration, leading to a more uniform appearance. Hydration is crucial to smooth, elastic skin and hyaluronic acid is known for its remarkable hydrating effects.
Additionally, when the cheeks are smoother after SKINVIVE™, light more effectively reflects off of the cheek area, giving the face a refreshed, youthful glow. In clinical trials, 83% of patients were satisfied with how healthy their facial skin looked six months after receiving SKINVIVE™ injections.
How Long Does SKINVIVE™ Last?
SKINVIVE™ gives the skin a smooth, glowing appearance that lasts for six months. Unlike many similar injectables, it doesn’t require a series of treatments, making it a convenient option for patients with hectic schedules. Additionally, patients can return to their normal schedules immediately after receiving SKINVIVE™ injections, although they should avoid sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and alcohol for the first 24 hours.
Side effects from SKINVIVE™ are typically mild and may include redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, itching, or discoloration at the injection site.
At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, we’re pleased to introduce SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® as a safe, effective, and convenient injectable for smoother, healthier-looking skin. Schedule a consultation today to learn if it could be right for you!
