What Is SkinVive and What Are Its Benefits?

Our lives are always so busy and most of us don’t always get the recommended 8 hours of sleep or daily water intake for our body weight. But if you could accomplish all of this from a single product, wouldn’t that be fantastic? (Other than, you know, actually sleeping and drinking water.)

What is SkinVive and What Are It’s Benefits?

SkinVive is the latest advancement in injectable skin treatments that is designed to specifically boost hydration and smooth skin texture. Fundamentally, SkinVive is a filler that enhances the appearance of your skin, rather than the shape of your face. It’s a different type of filler from the Juvederm collection of fillers.

You are likely familiar with Juvederm’s other fillers as well as Restylane which are used to augment and fill various areas of the face. However, they don’t impact the quality of the skin. Instead, they are used to make cheekbones more prominent or plump up your lips.

On the other hand, SkinVive is the first FDA-approved injectable gel of its kind in skincare. SkinVive improves skin imperfections and smoothness, leaving behind naturally radiant, supple skin. In fact, it’s often referred to as a “skin booster” rather than a filler since its job is not to rebuild volume, but rather to hydrate your skin.

While answering questions like “What is SkinVive?”, you should know that this injectable should only be performed by a licensed skin care practitioner. Preferably one that has master skills as an injector.

How Does SkinVive Work?

Similar to other Juvederm premium dermal fillers, SkinVive is made with hyaluronic acid (HA). As a naturally occurring substance already present in our body, HA has the unique ability to retain moisture. SkinVive’s ability to inject micro droplets into the dermis, delivers HA through several injection points across the treatment area. This process increases overall skin hydration to create a visible glow.

SkinVive Benefits

SkinVive offers several skin rejuvenation benefits in treated areas, including:

  • Boosts skin hydration. Due to its hyaluronic acid content, SkinVive dramatically increases skin hydration, giving your skin a dewy, healthy, and youthful appearance.
  • Smooths skin texture. Through its application technique and innovative formula, SkinVive provides a supple and silky feel to the treated area, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promotes smoother skin texture.

The real secret to radiant skin is hydration. SkinVive boosts your complexion from within, and is now available at Magnolia Medical & Aesthetics!

Treatment Areas

SkinVive is FDA-approved to treat the cheek area to rejuvenate and smooth the skin’s appearance as well as boost natural skin hydration. It’s important to note that SkinVive is not a dermal filler because it does not add volume to areas of the face.

Who Is a Good Candidate For SkinVive?

Just about anyone who wants the “glass” look and is age 21 and older can get SkinVive injections. However, we don’t perform SkinVive on women who are breastfeeding or pregnant. And if you are experiencing inflammatory conditions like rashes or other active breakouts, we will wait until they clear up.

What Is The Downtime and Results Like?

Downtime is minimal after SkinVive injections. In fact, you can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. However, please wait at least 24 hours after treatment before wearing makeup or exercising.

Within about four weeks after treatment, you will notice visible results as your skin will look more hydrated. But guess what? The results of a glowing, smooth complexion last for up to 6 months!

The bottom line…
