Do you wish you could always have that “fresh from a DiamondGlow®” radiance to your skin? Do you covet the dewy, fresh, and smooth look of intensely hydrated skin? Then, it’s time to meet Refinery Skin Clinic’s newest treatment, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM®!
What is SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM®?
SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks. It increases hydration to improve skin’s smoothness and provide a lasting glow for up to 6 months with optimal treatment.
Although SKINVIVE™ is in the family of JUVÉDERM® hyaluronic acid fillers, it’s more appropriate to think of it as a long-duration moisturizer than an actual dermal filler. That’s because it focuses on improving the quality and hydration of your skin, more so than volumizing skin or contouring facial features.
How does SKINVIVE™ work?
SKINVIVE™ is incredibly soft and hydrophilic (water-attracting) with a water-like consistency. These qualities allow it to be injected superficially into the skin without lumps or bumps. SKINVIVE™ micro-droplet injections are administered in a grid pattern of multiple sites across the cheeks once the skin has been numbed with a topical. As it diffuses into the skin, SKINVIVE™ begins to draw in water molecules. This action causes the skin’s surface to smooth and allows it to hold lasting hydration for up to six months.
Who is a good candidate for SKINVIVE™?
SKINVIVE™ is FDA-approved for use in adults over the age of 21. It is safe and effective on all skin types and colors. Anyone who desires more hydrated skin, smoother cheeks, and improved luminosity is usually a great candidate for SKINVIVE™!
How long do SKINVIVE™ results last?
You can expect a subtle improvement to your skin immediately after your SKINVIVE™ appointment, but smoothing results usually peak one month after injection and last up to six months. Most clients comment that a youthful glow has been restored to their dull or tired skin. Others note that their dehydrated or dry skin feels much more hydrated and comfortable. SKINVIVE™ gives clients that fresh, dewy glow that radiates health and vitality! Refinery Skin Clinic Injection Specialists recommend scheduling SKINVIVE™ at every other quarterly BOTOX® appointment to keep your skin consistently smooth and vibrant all year round.
Are there any side effects with SKINVIVE™?
SKINVIVE™ has minimal downtime. You can expect slight swelling and redness at the injection sites that should resolve within 4-6 hours. Although uncommon, some bruising may occur at the injection sites that may last a few days. SKINVIVE™ is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring component of human skin, so side effects are minimal.
How much does SKINVIVE™ cost?
SKINVIVE™ costs between $700-$950 per treatment at Refinery Skin Clinic, depending on how much product is used. Clients who are members of our Year Round Radiance or Glow Getter Monthly Memberships save $100 on every SKINVIVE™ treatment. Allē Rewards points can also be earned and redeemed on SKINVIVE™ treatments.
