If your cheek area looks dull, dry, and lifeless, a revolutionary treatment by Juvéderm called Skinvive can give it a refreshed, dewy glow. Also called an “injectable moisturizer” or “skin booster,” Skinvive is a one-of-a-kind, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment available at Glo MedSpa in Wilmington, NC. Unlike traditional fillers, which add volume to certain areas of the face, Skinvive focuses on enhancing texture and radiance by hydrating your skin.

What Is Juvéderm Skinvive and What Is It Used For?

Skinvive is called an intra-dermal filler. This means it’s injected right under the epidermis (the outermost layer of your skin). It’s intended to improve the skin’s quality by hydrating it from within, which also reduces fine lines and crepiness. Skinvive works with all skin tones.

What Are the Key Ingredients in Juvéderm Skinvive?

Skinvive is a smooth, colorless, watery gel with the active ingredient hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that attracts moisture to increase hydration. As the substance diffuses under the skin, it draws in water molecules. Skinvive is injected in very small amounts, which are referred to as micro-droplets because they have a water-like consistency.

Hyaluronic acid molecules in Skinvive are cross-linked, meaning they’re bound together to increase the gel’s resilience and longevity. Skinvive also contains lidocaine, a painkiller that reduces discomfort during injection.

How Long Do the Results of Juvéderm Skinvive Last?

The results of a Skinvive treatment can typically last up to six months. Because you may have some swelling after treatment, the full effects will become noticeable after a few weeks.

What Is the Injection Process Like for Juvéderm Skinvive?

Skinvive injections take about 10 to 15 minutes. First, the treatment area will be cleaned and prepped with an antiseptic. Then, your provider will inject the solution into specific areas of the face. One treatment typically utilizes two syringes for each side of your face.

Although Skinvive contains lidocaine to reduce pain at the injection site, your doctor may also numb the area with a topical anesthetic.

How Many Sessions Are Typically Needed for Optimal Results with Juvéderm Skinvive?

After six months, you’ll need a touch-up session to prolong your results. Periodic maintenance treatments every six to nine months will extend Skinvive’s benefits.
