Experience the Magic of SkinVive by Juvéderm: Your guide to luminous, vibrant, and healthy skin

As we age, our skin gradually loses the natural moisture it needs to keep skin looking supple, luminous, and healthy. While serums and moisturizers are important components of any skincare regimen, sometimes they just aren’t enough to fully restore our skin’s healthy glow. Enter SkinVive by Juvéderm (also known as Juvéderm Volite), the ultimate complexion treatment that works to restore the skin’s natural moisture levels, leaving it plump, vibrant, and healthier. Join us on a journey to experience the magic of SkinVive and discover your guide to luminous, vibrant skin.

What is SkinVive by Juvéderm, and how does it work?

SkinVive by Juvéderm is a revolutionary complexion treatment that utilizes a unique formula of hyaluronic acid (HA) to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. By introducing microdroplets of this HA formula into the skin, SkinVive has a unique triple-action effect that works to dramatically increase the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid—the three elements of your skin that are vital in keeping it looking its healthiest.

How is SkinVive by Juvéderm different from other dermal fillers?

SkinVive offers a distinct approach to skin rejuvenation that sets it apart from traditional dermal fillers by targeting hydration and collagen production rather than simply restoring volume. Unlike dermal fillers that work to fill deep lines, creases, and facial hollows, SkinVive allows for a more widespread distribution of this hydration-loving formulation throughout the skin. With its smooth, gel-like consistency that blends seamlessly into the skin, SkinVive deeply hydrates the skin from within, promoting a more radiant, refreshed complexion. 

What are the benefits of using SkinVive by Juvéderm for skin rejuvenation?

One of the key benefits of SkinVive is its ability to deeply hydrate the skin–improving its texture and tone, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores, leaving your skin looking smoother and more dewy. SkinVive can also enhance the skin’s natural elasticity by promoting collagen production, helping to restore a more youthful suppleness and firmness. Additionally, SkinVive is a non-surgical complexion treatment that requires minimal downtime, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. Overall, SkinVive is a safe and effective treatment that offers a range of benefits for those seeking to rejuvenate their skin.

What areas can be treated with SkinVive by Juvéderm?

Common areas that can be treated with SkinVive include:

  1. Face: Improves skin texture, tone, hydration, and firmness on the forehead, cheeks, perioral area, chin, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines
  2. Neck: Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin texture and hydration.
  3. Décolletage: Improves the texture and hydration of the skin by addressing skin laxity and fine lines in the chest area, leading to a more youthful and radiant appearance.
  4. Hands: Improves skin texture and hydration, and acts like a volumizer, making hollows and veins less visible.

How long does a SkinVive by Juvéderm treatment last, and how often does it need to be repeated?>

The effects of a SkinVive treatment can vary from person to person, but generally, the results last for several months, typically 6-9 months. However, the longevity of the results can depend on various factors such as individual metabolism, lifestyle, and the skin concerns treated. The frequency of SkinVive treatments depends on an individual’s desired outcomes and the area being treated. Some people may only require a single treatment to achieve their desired results, while others may require more frequent retreatment to maintain their outcome.

In general, a maintenance treatment with SkinVive is recommended every 6–9 months to keep the skin looking fresh and healthy. It is important to discuss your expectations and goals with a qualified professional who can provide personalized recommendations and guidance. They can help determine the appropriate treatment plan.

What is the recovery time after a SkinVive by Juvéderm treatment?

One of the benefits of a SkinVive treatment is that there is generally little downtime. After the treatment, some people may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at some of the injection sites, but these effects are typically mild. Most people are able to resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment. However, avoiding aggressive exercise and strenuous activities is usually recommended for the first 24 hours following the procedure. Additionally, it’s important to avoid touching the treated area for a few hours to minimize the risk of infection.

It’s important to note that the recovery experience can vary from treatment to treatment depending on many intrinsic and extrinsic factors. However, most people find that the recovery time after a SkinVive treatment is minimal and that they are able to return to their normal daily routine quickly. If you have any concerns about your recovery after the treatment, it’s always best to consult with us for guidance and advice.

Is the SkinVive by Juvéderm treatment painful?

A SkinVive complexion treatment involves microdroplet injections of HA just beneath the surface of the skin. To maximize comfort during your treatment, a topical numbing cream and ice packs are applied to the treatment area prior to the injections. This simultaneously helps reduce the instance of bruising. Additionally, SkinVive is formulated with lidocaine, a localized anesthetic agent, which ensures ongoing comfort as the treatment progresses. 

Treatment sensation is a very individual experience. However, most people find SkinVive treatments to be well-tolerated. If you have any concerns about pain or discomfort, we will be pleased to answer your questions and design a comfort protocol that meets your needs.
