Sustaining optimal skin hydration is crucial for maintaining the overall appearance and health of your skin.1 As we age, our skin’s innate ability to retain moisture declines,2 often resulting in various skin issues, including reduced smoothness. The benefits of hydration extend beyond mere moisturization; they also encompass restoring the skin’s inherent suppleness.3 The skilled experts at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach, FL, are pleased to introduce Skinvive™ by Juvéderm®, an innovative skin enhancement treatment engineered to rejuvenate, replenish, and reveal your skin’s innate radiance. Skinvive is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US specifically designed to enhance skin smoothness in the cheek area. If you’re in search of a non-surgical solution to rejuvenate your facial appearance and restore youthful radiance, Skinvive may be the perfect choice for you.

What is Skinvive?
Skinvive is often described as a “skin booster” rather than a traditional filler. Its primary purpose isn’t to restore volume like other dermal fillers on the market. Instead, Skinvive focuses on hydrating your skin and providing you with a radiant, refreshed look that can last up to six months. In essence, Skinvive is a dermal treatment that enhances your skin’s appearance, without significantly altering the facial contours. Unlike more familiar fillers such as Juvederm or RHA, which are typically used to augment specific facial areas without directly improving skin quality, Skinvive offers a unique approach to rejuvenating your skin.
How Skinvive Works
Skinvive is a microdroplet dermal filler designed for injecting close to the skin’s surface to address lines, wrinkles, and various skin imperfections. This innovative treatment has exhibited remarkable effectiveness in improving the appearance of cheek wrinkles, minimizing pores, enhancing skin texture, and boosting hydration levels. The mechanism behind Skinvive’s success lies in harnessing the moisture-attracting properties of hyaluronic acid (HA) to enhance skin hydration and refine texture. Unlike traditional dermal fillers injected into the deeper dermal layers to restore lost volume, Skinvive employs droplet injections placed superficially, right on the outer layer of the skin, or the epidermis. Once deposited into the skin, it diffuses into an even layer.

What To Expect During Your Skinvive Treatment

FAQs About Skinvive
How soon will I see results after a Skinvive treatment?
Skinvive can yield noticeable results within a matter of days, with effects that can last up to 12 months. Many of our West Palm Beach and Palm Beach patients report immediate results with Skinvive, while others may observe gradual improvements over subsequent days and weeks. As the HA gradually integrates into the skin, you can anticipate continued enhancements in your skin’s appearance over time. The rapid and effective nature of Skinvive makes it an ideal choice for those seeking revitalization and a youthful appearance.
How long will my Skinvive results last?
The longevity of Skinvive’s results can vary based on individual factors such as age, skin condition, and lifestyle habits. Typically, results can persist for up to six months on average. With proper skincare and recommended maintenance treatments, which will be outlined by your MD Beauty Labs aesthetician during your consultation, you can extend the benefits of Skinvive.
Can I combine Skinvive with any other treatments?
Many of our West Palm Beach and Palm Beach patients opt to combine Skinvive with additional skincare treatments to enhance and maximize their results. Popular combinations include pairing Skinvive with Botox for addressing fine lines and wrinkles, utilizing chemical peels for exfoliation, or incorporating RF microneedling for collagen stimulation and skin tightening. Combining treatments can effectively address multiple skin concerns simultaneously, yielding even more remarkable results.
However, it is imperative to consult with your aesthetician during your consultation before combining Skinvive with other treatments to ensure their safety and appropriateness for your specific needs. They will assess your skin’s distinct requirements and customize a treatment plan that effectively addresses all your concerns.
Am I a good candidate for Skinvive injections?
Skinvive is suitable for most individuals seeking to enhance the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture. However, it is not recommended for those with severe allergies or a history of anaphylaxis. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also avoid Skinvive treatment. To determine your suitability for Skinvive, your aesthetician will conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history and cosmetic goals to assess whether you are a candidate. They will also discuss any potential risks or side effects with you and address any questions you may have.
Does Skinvive have any side effects?
As with any cosmetic treatment, there are some potential side effects associated with Skinvive. These can include redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. However, these side effects are typically mild and temporary, and most of our patients can resume their normal activities immediately following their Skinvive treatments.
