Skinvive for Glowing, Youthful Skin

Posted on November 28, 2023

We are excited to introduce a new and innovative product from Juvéderm: Skinvive. If you want to achieve healthy, glowing skin, this might be the perfect treatment for you. Here’s what you need to know about its benefits and how it works.

What is Skinvive? 

Skinvive is an injectable treatment that uses microdroplets of hyaluronic acid to rehydrate the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body and it can attract large quantities of water molecules to the skin. Starting in our early 30s, hyaluronic acid levels naturally decrease and this causes the skin to lose elasticity and moisture. The result is more prominent wrinkles, skin laxity (loose skin), and a dull complexion. Skinvive combats these effects by replenishing hyaluronic acid and moisture in the skin.

How Does Skinvive Work?

Skinvive is injected superficially into the skin by your aesthetician or cosmetic dermatologist. The crosslinked hyaluronic acid molecules give your skin an intense hydration boost and help it retain moisture for long-lasting results. As the hyaluronic acid molecules draw water into the treated area, the skin is subtly plumped to smooth fine lines, and dull skin is rehydrated for a brighter complexion. Enhanced skin tone and texture can be seen after the first treatment with continued improvements after a series of treatments. 

What Are the Benefits of Skinvive?

If you are considering a Skinvive treatment with Dr. Kalimullah and Dr. Cavanaugh, these are some of the main benefits that you can expect:

Smoother Skin Texture 

Dehydration causes the skin to lose elasticity and shrink inward, which makes fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. The subtle plumping effect of Skinvive injections helps fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and mild acne scarring while smoothing rough skin texture and surface imperfections.

Increased Hydration 

If you have dry, flaky skin or your skin feels tight because of dehydration, Skinvive is an exceptional treatment option designed specifically for these concerns. The injected hyaluronic acid will lock in moisture, hydrating the skin from within and strengthening the skin barrier. Hydrated skin is plumper and more elastic, which combats the aging effects of loose, crepey skin and wrinkling.

Natural-Looking Results 

Unlike other dermal fillers, Skinvive is not designed to volumize or recontour the facial structures. Its main purpose is to rehydrate the skin and rejuvenate naturally brighter, healthier skin. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, the Skinvive product will blend seamlessly into your skin without altering your appearance.

Versatile Treatment

Skinvive can be used on the face, neck, hands, decolletage, and other areas where you notice dehydrated or wrinkled skin. The hyaluronic acid solution is used to brighten dull skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and increase elasticity. The versatility of this product allows for comprehensive treatment that addresses many early signs of aging all in one treatment.
