SkinVive Hydrating Treatment is the first and only hyaluronic acid-based microdroplet injectable designed to boost hydration of the skin and smoothness of the cheeks.  Following treatment, SkinVive leaves the cheeks feeling plump and smooth, with a glowing complexion.

What are the Benefits of SkinVive?

  • Improved skin smoothness
  • Increased skin hydration from within
  • Reduced lines and wrinkles
  • Results last up to 6 months
  • No downtime following treatment

How Does SkinVive Work?

SkinVive is innovative as it is the first hyaluronic-acid (HA) treatment focused on increasing hydration to improve skin texture along the cheeks. HA occurs naturally in your skin to maintain hydration and volume. As we age, the level of HA decreases, causing skin to become dry and develop lines and wrinkles.  When injected into the upper layer of the skin, Skinvive restores HA to levels comparable to what is found in younger skin, and the resulting hydration leaves the skin smoother with a youthful glow.

In addition to enhanced hydration, SkinVive injections also stimulate collagen production along the treatment area, helping to correct lines and wrinkles while improving skin elasticity. Following treatment, skin quality is vastly improved with patients reporting skin that feels and appears more radiant and refreshed.

What Facial Areas Can Be Treated with SkinVive?

SkinVive is currently FDA approved to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for SkinVive?

SkinVive is ideal for patients who wish to treat loss of hydration, texture issues, and fines lines. The product is safe for use on individuals of all skin types and tones on the Fitzpatrick scale.

How Long Will the Results Last?

Patients will begin to realize a noticeable improvement in their skin after a single treatment session, with results improving over the first several weeks. In clinical trials, the results of SkinVive lasted up to six months. Patients can extend the results of SkinVive by undergoing periodic maintenance treatment sessions.

How is SkinVive Treatment Performed?

SkinVive is injected into the dermis (upper layer) of skin using an ultra-thin needle. The injections are quick and patients can return to normal daily activity immediately following treatment.

SkinVive treatments do not require downtime (recovery time). Patients can return to work, school, or any other normal daily activity immediately following treatment.

Are SkinVive Treatments Painful?

Treatment is minimally painful as SkinVive contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the injections. A topical numbing cream may also be utilized if desired. While many patients report only feeling a brief prick on the skin as the needle is inserted, some may notice a sensation of pressure as the gel is deposited into the layers of skin.

Are There Any Side Effects of SkinVive Treatments?

As with any facial filler treatments, side effects of SkinVive are typically related to the injection process. Patients may notice some temporary localized swelling, bruising, and pinpoint bleeding around the injection site. Other side effects are related to allergic reactions, which are rare due to the presence of natural HA in the skin.
