What is SkinVive?

SkinVive by Juvederm is a groundbreaking product that has quickly captivated the industry. A hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable, it is specifically designed to make the cheeks look smoother by increasing hydration. This FDA-approved treatment is an intradermal microdroplet injection, meaning that it specifically targets the skin rather than penetrating into the deeper dermal layers.

Rejuvenate Your Skin With SkinVive

Youthful, radiant cheeks symbolize vitality. Unfortunately, factors such as the natural aging process and genetics can negatively impact them over time, making them looking rougher and less smooth. In addition to these natural factors, medications, weight loss, and stress can also play a role in this development. While injectable fillers can address these unwanted conditions in the cheeks, they are also associated with unwanted conditions, such as swelling, bruising, and lumps.

SkinVive is a promising alternative to traditional fillers, offering patients remarkable results with a reduced likelihood of side effects. Dr. Cappuccino and his skilled team guide patients on the path toward fuller, smoother skin with this innovative treatment.

How Does SkinVive Work?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced by the body and has the impressive ability of attracting and holding up to one thousand times its own weight in water. When injected into the dermal layer, SkinVive causes a drastic increase in hydration, leaving the skin looking fuller and smoother than it has in years. 

What Does the Procedure Entail?

SkinVive is known for its simple and quick procedure. During the consultation, Dr. Cappuccino conducts a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s current status and medical history. The treatment process then starts with the aesthetician cleaning the patient’s face. They then use a thin needle to inject small quantities of the SkinVive injectable into all of the targeted areas. SkinVive contains .3% lidocaine, meaning that the injections are less painful than with other treatments. The entire procedure typically takes somewhere between fifteen and thirty minutes to carry out. 

SkinVive treatments come with no downtime, meaning that patients can return to their usual routines right away. However, some patients may experience slight swelling or discoloration around the injection sites, which will gradually diminish over the course of a few weeks.    

Patients must make sure to avoid strenuous activities, excess sun exposure, and alcohol for the first 24 hours following the treatment. Failing to do so can lead to temporary redness, itching, or swelling around the treatment sites.

What to Expect from the Results

Patients typically see immediate results after undergoing a SkinVive session. However, there tends to be some swelling following the treatment, meaning that the results might be obscured for a few days. The final results of the procedure can last for up to 9 months.
