Don’t just go through life – glow through it! An exciting new injectable is elevating skin radiance and helping people regain a youthful glow. SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM is the first and only FDA-approved microdroplet injectable for improving skin smoothness in the cheeks, and it’s here in East Tennessee! The hyaluronic acid (HA) formula gives a big boost in hydration to provide a lasting glow for up to six months in many cases.
How does SKINVIVE work?
SKINVIVE is the first and only injectable treatment that works by delivering microdroplets of HA directly to the skin. Unlike other HA fillers designed to lift and augment a treatment area, SKINVIVE works to improve the cheeks by smoothing the skin and increasing hydration. SKINVIVE targets the actual quality of the skin itself, hydrating from within to erase crepiness and smooth fine lines. Many patients treated with SKINVIVE use words like “glowing,” “healthy,” and “refreshed” to describe their results
Am I a candidate for treatment with SKINVIVE?
SKINVIVE is FDA-approved for patients 21 and older and is appropriate for all skin types and tones. So, virtually anyone in East Tennessee seeking some cheek TLC can benefit from SKINVIVE injections.
What can I expect during a SKINVIVE treatment?
Injections typically take about 10-15 minutes with minimal to no downtime needed after. We’ll first cleanse the treatment area, then inject the SKINVIVE droplets into strategic areas of the cheeks. Treatment is relatively painless, so there is no need for any numbing. SKINVIVE actually contains lidocaine to reduce injection site pain. Most people describe treatment with SKINVIVE as feeling similar to tox injections.
Will I need any downtime after SKINVIVE injections?
Most of our patients don’t feel the need for any downtime after their treatment. However, you can expect some slight swelling at the injection sites for a few hours after your treatment, and possible mild bruising that can last for a few days. We’ll make sure to go over all the details so you’ll have a clear picture of what to expect.
When will I see results from SKINVIVE and how long do they last?
You can expect an immediate improvement in fine lines after SKINVIVE is injected, with the reappearance of a youthful glow in the days following. That glow continues for up to six months in many cases. Through clinical research, a significant increase in aquaporin (a water channel protein that indicates increased skin hydration) occurred and was still present through the six-month mark. In conducted clinical studies, 56% of participants showed lasting improvement in skin smoothness of the cheeks at six months after their injections, while 84% said they were satisfied with how healthy their skin looked at one month and 83% at six months. Once the effects of SKINVIVE wear off, you can choose to have a touch-up treatment to maintain your results.
