What Is SKINVIVE™ And How Does It Work?

SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is an innovative skin quality treatment that uses modified hyaluronic acid (HA) to improve cheek smoothness and increase hydration. As you age and are exposed to the sun, the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin, a molecule that attracts water, naturally decline. SKINVIVE™ contains microdroplets of hyaluronic acid that can help mitigate the effects, such as changes in texture and dullness.

Unlike other injectables, SKINVIVE™ won't change the shape or volume of your face. Instead, it works beneath the surface to give you healthier-looking skin that glows for up to six months.

In clinical studies, patients who received SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® reported high satisfaction with their skin's appearance. They noticed improvements in smoothness, hydration, and overall health. 

The treatment is quick, lasting about 15 minutes, and requires minimal downtime. Some people may need an optional touch-up.

If you're looking for a convenient and effective way to improve your skin quality, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® may be right. It's suitable for all skin types and tones and designed to reduce fine lines and improve smoothness in the cheeks.
