Have you ever wanted a rejuvenating injectable, but were wary about the volume it would add to your face? Many people who desire facial alterations stay away from injectables for this exact reason, but they don’t have to worry anymore. Now, you can experience all the incredible smoothening effects of injectables without the added fullness with SkinVive by Juvederm!

What is Skinvive?

SkinVive by Juvederm is an amazing gel injectable that can be used on anyone 21 or older designed to improve the cheeks’ smoothness. SkinVive doesn’t just smooth out skin, it enhances hydration, offering a 6-month-long glow. Not only is this product the first of its kind, but it’s also the only hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable with FDA approval.

What is Skinvive Used For?

SkinVive is a cheek injectable shot in numerous, equally spaced injection sites across the entire treatment area. This injectable treatment will not change the volume of your cheeks or the fullness of your face. Rather, its sole focus is to leave your cheeks glowing, with a constantly refreshed look. Patients who’ve received SkinVive by Juvederm love the long-lasting effects with SkinVive lasting twice as long as traditional Botox.

Before Your Skinvive Treatment

Before your appointment, notify your doctor of any medication you are on or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding—these situations can lead to complicated reactions to SkinVive. Avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and alcohol for 24 hours after treatment. You will likely experience some tenderness, redness, and swelling after the procedure, but these side effects should resolve within a week. Talk to Dr. Rivela if you notice any concerning symptoms.
