SkinVive by Juvederm is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks. SkinVive is often referred to as a "skin booster" rather than a filler, since its job isn’t to rebuild volume like other fillers, but rather to hydrate your skin and give you a glowy “I slept for a solid 8 hours” look. This new hyaluronic acid filler was approved by the FDA in May 2023 may be the closest thing to a whole night’s sleep and your recommended three liters of daily water that you can get.
What to expect during your treatment
Our staff will thoroughly explain the procedure and answer all questions. The treatment typically lasts 10-15 minutes, with little to no downtime. Side effects are minimal; however, there is always the possibility of bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site. SkinVive by JUVÉDERM provides results over the course of six months, without requiring a recurring series of treatments. In clinical studies, 56% of participants in the treatment group showed improvement in skin smoothness on their cheeks at 6 months after treatment/touch-up. Not only that, 84% of subjects were satisfied with how healthy their skin looked at one month, and 83% at six months (in comparison, only 38% of subjects felt this way pre-treatment). Overall, patients reported how glowing, hydrated, refreshed, and healthy their skin looked after treatment.
For the first 24 hours after treatment, avoid alcoholic beverages, strenuous exercise, and exposure to extensive sun and heat (as these may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site).
No laying flat for 4 hours after treatment
No exercise or vigorous activity for 24 hours after treatment
