SKINVIVE™ in West Palm Beach, FL
What is Skinvive?
Introducing Skinvive, a cutting-edge injectable treatment designed to rejuvenate and hydrate your cheek skin, now offered exclusively at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology. Juvederm Skinvive stands apart from traditional dermal fillers featured in the Juvéderm collection.
While Juvederm dermal fillers excel at addressing volume loss, contouring the face, defining the jawline, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful aesthetic, Skinvive takes a unique approach. Like its Juvederm counterparts, Skinvive is an injectable gel harnessed from hyaluronic acid. However, Skinvive diverges in its primary objective: to boost skin hydration and promote enhanced smoothness in the proximity of the injection site.
What is Skinvive used for?
Skinvive represents an innovation in the field of cosmetic dermatology, as it is the first intradermal injectable hyaluronic acid-based treatment to improve skin texture for smooth, hydrated skin. The injectable treatment is specifically used to combat dry skin in the cheek area of the face. One great advantage of the Juvederm Skinvive injections is that they can be safely used on patients of all skin types on the FitzPatrick scale. The treatment results in improved skin quality, manifesting as more hydrated-looking skin and patients feeling more radiant and refreshed.
How does Skinvive work?
If you're looking to improve the quality of your skin, adequate hydration is and always will remain the best way to get a healthy and radiant complexion. Skinvive features hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within the body that skillfully retains water molecules, thus ensuring skin remains plump and moisturized. Through the precise administration of hyaluronic acid-based Juvederm Skinvive gel injections, this treatment infuses the skin with intense hydration, resulting in a significant enhancement of skin smoothness. Furthermore, the strategic placement of hyaluronic acid within the treatment area stimulates collagen production, fostering improved skin elasticity and, in turn, contributing to the reduction of fine lines' visibility. Skinvive works its magic by creating a reservoir of moisture that lasts up to six months.
What is the procedure for Skinvive injectable gel treatment?
The first step for any cosmetic treatment is to schedule a consultation with expert board-certified dermatologist Dr. Supriya Tomar at either one of her dermatology offices in West Palm Beach or Jupiter. At the consultation, you will discuss your treatment needs and aesthetic goals, and Dr. Tomar will decide about the treatment or series of treatments that will best meet your needs. If you are dealing with dry skin on the cheeks, Skinvive injectable treatment may be your best option. When you arrive at the office for treatment, we may apply a topical anesthetic to the skin at the injection site to improve patient comfort during the procedure. Skinvive also contains an anesthetic called lidocaine, ensuring patients feel minimal discomfort during treatment. The injections will be quick, and patients can immediately return to their regularly scheduled activities without downtime. Most patients experience mild side effects, such as swelling and discoloration at the injection site, which should resolve on their own within 30 days.
How long do results last?
The results of Skinvive skin hydrating treatment are long-lasting and become apparent after only one treatment session, meaning no additional treatment sessions are necessary until the effects of the treatment begin to wear off. According to the clinical trials, most patients still noted the revitalizing effects of the treatment six months after receiving the injections, meaning that the treatment results can be visible for at least six months. Once the effects of the treatment begin to fade, patients can schedule a maintenance appointment with us for continued skin smoothness.
What are the side effects?
There are several common side effects that patients may experience after receiving the injections, which can include swelling at the injection site; bruising, redness, or discoloration; lumps, bumps, or firmness at or near the injection site; pain and tenderness.
These side effects are typically mild, meaning they do not prevent patients from performing their regular activities, and they will typically resolve on their own within 30 days of receiving the treatment. Some patients also reported more moderate side effects, such as abrasions and papules at the injection site, though this is a more uncommon side effect. If side effects do not resolve within 30 days, it is best to contact your healthcare provider for treatment.
