As you get older, the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in your skin begins to go down. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in skin quality and moisturization. When your skin loses its natural moisture, it can cause fine lines, rough texture and dullness. (1) Luckily, there are cosmetic solutions to address these effects. Utilizing a revolutionary innovation in skin moisture technology, SkinVive by Juvedérm has recently been approved by the FDA. Already a skincare phenomenon in Europe, this rejuvenation technique is safe, natural and effective.
SkinVive is an injectable skin treatment that can brighten and hydrate the skin. It is made up of a hyaluronic acid that works from the inside to give the cheeks a dewy glow. While dermal fillers are designed to add volume to the face, SkinVive is geared specifically towards skin hydration and health.
For traditional dermal fillers, a provider injects the hyaluronic acid below the skin, where it takes up space and adds visible volume to the face. SkinVive, on the other hand, involves injecting microdroplets into the outermost layer of skin, where it spreads out and takes effect. Therefore, it will not change the shape of your face, only the look of your skin. The hyaluronic acid gives the proteins in your skin a boost, enhancing its health and appearance. It also works by attracting water molecules. (2) When it is evenly dispersed across your skin this can bring natural-looking moisture to the surface.
Benefits of SkinVive
SkinVive is not technically a dermal filler, it is more commonly referred to as a “skin booster”. Unlike typical dermal fillers, it cannot treat signs of aging like sagging skin and wrinkles by adding volume. Rather, SkinVive injections can increase skin vibrancy and fight rough texture and dullness by improving the quality of the skin itself. It can provide a dewy complexion, and achieve a continuous state of moisturization, regardless of your skincare routine.
SkinVive injections can even achieve some of that extra tightness that the added volume in traditional fillers typically would. They accomplish this by stimulating the production of collagen, a structural protein that helps keep your skin firm and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Candidates for SkinVive

If you want skin that looks healthy, moisturized, and radiant, SkinVive might be right for you. It is safe for all skin types, including Fitzpatrick skin types I-VI.

We will provide you with personalized instructions on how best to prepare. This may include starting or stopping certain medications. We highly recommend that you follow these instructions to ensure that your treatment is swift and successful.
To reduce bruising, you should avoid blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, fish oil, and vitamin E. You should avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning beds, as tanned or burned skin can make your skin more sensitive and increase recovery time.
SkinVive treatment involves precisely administering the specialized SkinVive solution into targeted areas of the face using fine needles. Our expertise ensures that the injections are comfortable and accurate, resulting in optimal outcomes. It begins when your provider applies a numbing agent to your treatment site. When your skin has been prepared, they will begin injecting the formula into your cheeks. They will deliver tiny amounts of hyaluronic acid in each injection to spread the effects evenly around the surface. SkinVive procedures typically last 15 to 30 minutes.
Recovery from SkinVive treatment requires little to no downtime. If you are feeling up to it, you may resume daily activities immediately. However, to increase the likelihood of a quick and easy recovery, you should avoid heavy exercise, applying makeup, sun exposure, and alcohol for 24 hours. You can expect some redness, swelling, irritation and subtle bruising in the treatment area. You may apply ice packs to your cheeks to reduce swelling. These side effects shouldn’t last more than a few days.
Since SkinVive treatment works at a cellular level, it may take a few days or weeks for the results to show. Skin quality is a less noticeable aspect of beauty than facial size and shape, so the results of SkinVive will be more subtle than with dermal fillers. In this case, a soft but radiant glow is the ideal result. Your skin will be dewier and brighter. The newfound luster will make it easier to apply makeup, and makeup will appear more natural. Your skin will look moisturized even without applying moisturizer. However, you should not replace a healthy skin care routine with SkinVive; they will work better together. The rejuvenating results of this treatment can last, and even continue to improve, for as long as six months. Talk to your provider about receiving additional SkinVive treatments to maintain your results.
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
At 17Medspa, we offer treatments that can correspond with and complement SkinVive by Juvedérm.
The Juvedérm family of fillers is a range that works in a more traditional sense than SkinVive. They can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin by restoring volume and encouraging collagen and elastin production. This can provide a more contoured and youthful appearance.
The VI Peel is a type of chemical peel that goes beyond traditional exfoliation methods to address a wide range of skincare concerns. Whether you are struggling with pigmentation issues, acne scars, or simply want to achieve a more youthful appearance, the VI Peel can help.
This innovative treatment utilizes a unique blend of powerful ingredients, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, retinoic acid, and vitamin C. These carefully selected components work synergistically to penetrate deep into the skin, targeting damaged cells and stimulating collagen production.
Fat Dissolving Injection
A Fat Dissolving Injection can reduce the volume of the pockets of fat in your face and body. Some parts of the body hold pockets of fat that are resistant to exercise. These injections are made up of a special solution containing deoxycholic acid that can break up and dissolve stubborn fat cells. If your face could benefit from reduced volume and enhanced skin quality, a fat dissolving injection could make for the perfect addition to SkinVive by Juvedérm.
