Quench Your Skin's Thirst: Discover The Hydrating Power Of SkinVive

Skinvive is a revolutionary microinjectable version of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar molecule that keeps our skin hydrated and healthy. Skinvive by Juvederm gives the skin a firmer, smoother, and more hydrated appearance. This unique product has gained attention for its ability to rehydrate the skin, improving quality and appearance. Skinvive can be used successfully in any skin type and can benefit the vast majority of our patients. What sets Skinvive apart from traditional dermal fillers is its ability to not just restore volume but to significantly boost skin hydration, elasticity, and overall smoothness. It's your ticket to natural-looking results, offering a glow that comes with virtually zero downtime.

The SkinVive Process: How It Works

Skinvive’s active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that maintains moisture, suppleness, and firmness. Starting in our 30s, the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid levels decrease, leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of overall skin quality. Skinvive works by replenishing the lost HA, effectively hydrating and revitalizing the skin from within. The treatment involves a series of tiny micro-injections into target areas like your face, neck, décolleté, and hands. These injections deposit the HA gel beneath the skin’s surface, where it works its magic over time.

What To Expect On Your Treatment Day

When considering a Skinvive treatment at Derma Health Skin & Laser, here’s what you should anticipate:

  • Consultation: Your Skinvive experience begins with a personalized consultation. During this session, your skin will be assessed, and your aesthetic goals will be discussed. This is an opportunity for you to express your desires and for us to provide professional advice on whether Skinvive is the most suitable treatment for you.
  • Preparation: Before the treatment, we’ll advise you on any pre-procedure steps you should take. It’s usually recommended to avoid certain medications and supplements that may increase bruising and bleeding, such as aspirin or fish oil, for a period before the injections.

During Treatment:

  • Cleanse: The target area will be thoroughly cleansed to prevent infection.
  • Topical Anesthesia: Skinvive contains a small amount of lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during the procedure. Additional topical numbing cream may also be applied if necessary.
  • The Injections: Using a fine needle, Skinvive is injected beneath the skin in tiny amounts, with the microdroplet technique. These numerous, very small injections are spaced about 0.5-1 cm apart across the treatment area to ensure even distribution.
  • Duration: The process may take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

Post Treatment:

  • Care: You’ll receive instructions on how to care for your skin after the treatment. This may include avoiding strenuous exercise, extreme temperatures, and extensive sun or UV exposure for a period following the injections.
  • Recovery Time: Skinvive treatments typically involve minimal downtime. You can expect to return to most of your daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, there might be some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, which generally resolves within a week.

What Results Should I Expect?

  • Immediate: Some effects of hydration may be noticeable right away.
  • Progressive: Optimal results develop over the following weeks as the HA integrates into your skin and begins to attract moisture, with the full benefits typically being visible a few weeks after the treatment.
  • Duration: The results of Skinvive are not permanent but are long-lasting, generally between 6 to 9 months, and can be maintained with follow-up treatments.
  • Follow-Up: We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment to assess the results and plan for any additional treatments if desired.
