The Skinny on SkinVive™ by Juvederm®
By: Trianna Cordova, MSN, APRN, FNP-C at Hiatus Spa + Retreat Austin
Radiant, healthy, youthful skin is the name of the game and at Hiatus Spa + Retreat we are one step closer to making that even easier to achieve with a groundbreaking new skin treatment, SkinVive™ by Juvederm®! SkinVive™is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US to improve skin smoothness and provide a lasting glow for up to 6 months.
What is SkinVive?
SkinVive™ by Juvederm® combines the effects of a skin treatment and a dermal filler all in one quick and easy injectable treatment that is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA). I like to think of it as a medical grade moisturizer combined with a hyaluronic acid serum in injectable form. The results? 6 months of smoother, firmer, and more youthful skin with ultimate hydration!
This treatment is often referred to as a “skin booster” rather than a filler since its job isn’t to replace volume like other dermal fillers on the market, but rather deeply hydrate your skin and give you a “yes, I drink three liters of water a day and get 8+ hours of sleep a night” type of glow.
When can I start noticing results?
Results with SkinVive™ can vary depending on individual factors, but most patients start to see noticeable improvement in their skin’s texture and appearance within 2-4 weeks of receiving the treatment. Although only one treatment is needed to see results, it is recommended to get repeat treatments every 6 months to maintain deeply hydrating, refreshed, and healthy-looking skin.
I received my first SkinVive™ treatment about 3 weeks ago and have seen major improvement in my skin’s smoothness and overall radiance. I battle with keratosis pilaris, specifically on my cheeks which causes increased texture and I will honestly say, my skin appears hydrated, plump, and noticeably smoother compared to how it looked before treatment.
What is SkinVive made of?
SkinVive™utilizes a hyaluronic acid-based gel to improve skin’s overall hydration and quality. Because this treatment is made of the naturally occuring substance hyaluronic acid, it is safe to use and will naturally break down and be metabolized by your body. This is why it is recommended to get repeat treatments every 6 months to maintain results.
Is SkinVive right for me?
This treatment is FDA-approved for individuals over the age of 21 and works on all skin types and skin tones. The ideal patient to be treated with this first-of-its-kind injectable is someone who has dull skin, fine lines and needs instant hydration, glow, and healthy-looking skin. The treatment takes 15 minutes or less and can easily be added-on to your next Botox or Dysport treatment!
