What Does SkinVive™ by Juvéderm® Treat?
- Fine Lines: Helps soften the appearance of these early signs of aging
- Rough Skin Texture: Improves overall skin smoothness, offering a refined, polished look
- Dry, Dehydrated Skin: Introduces HA microdroplets that attract water, aiding in skin hydration
- Minor Scarring: Reduces the appearance of small, superficial scars on your skin’s surface
- Reduced Skin Elasticity: Enhances your skin’s elasticity, making it feel more supple and less rigid
How Does SkinVive™ by Juvéderm® Work?
This innovation in facial rejuvenation uses a special formulation of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin, to improve your skin’s texture and hydration. Unlike many other HA Juvéderm products called “fillers,” SkinVive is referred to as a “skin booster” since it gives your skin a hydration boost rather than adding volume to fill lines and wrinkles.
When injected into the superficial layer of your skin with an ultrafine needle, the HA microdroplets in SkinVive attract and absorb water, causing them to swell and fill in the gaps in your skin that contribute to a rough or uneven texture. This results in a more even skin surface that feels smoother and looks more vibrant and dewey.
Who Are Good Candidates for SkinVive™ by Juvéderm®?
If you’re over the age of 21 and seeking to improve the smoothness of the skin in your cheek area, SkinVive might be an excellent fit for you. SkinVive provides a rejuvenated appearance to areas affected by early signs of aging as well as prolonged sun exposure and environmental pollutants. Patients of any skin tone and type with noticeably rough, dry or dull skin in their midface may benefit from this treatment.
Schedule your consultation with Dr. Terrasse or one of our certified medical aestheticians for a personalized assessment to find out if SkinVive (or any other filler product or neurotoxin treatment) is right for you.
Preparing for SkinVive™ by Juvéderm®
At your consultation with Dr. Terrasse, he will assess your specific needs and evaluate whether SkinVive is the ideal treatment for you. If he determines it is and you choose to move forward with scheduling a treatment, you’ll be advised to avoid certain blood-thinning medications like aspirin for a couple of weeks prior to your injections, as these can increase the risk of bruising. Make sure to drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your treatment, as hydrated skin responds better to HA treatments.
What to Expect During the SkinVive™ Procedure
Here’s a step-by-step rundown of what happens during a SkinVive treatment:
- Skin Assessment: Dr. Terrasse will examine your skin to determine the injection points and make sure the area is clear of any sores, acne, rashes, hives and infections.
- Cleansing: The skin of your midface will be cleansed to prepare for the treatment.
- Numbing: A topical anesthetic may be applied to promote your comfort. However, this may not be necessary since SkinVive contains lidocaine, a pain reliever that acts as soon as it’s injected.
- Injection: Using an ultrafine needle, Dr. Terrasse will inject the SkinVive product into targeted areas.
- Post-procedure: Your skin will be cleansed with a medical-grade antiseptic solution, and you’ll receive post-treatment instructions.

Will I Need Downtime After SkinVive™ by Juvéderm®?
While every individual’s experience may vary, one of the advantages of SkinVive is that it generally involves minimal to no downtime. Most patients find they can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
That being said, you might experience some common post-treatment symptoms, such as redness and swelling, which usually subside within a few days. It’s also wise to listen to your body and perhaps take it easy for the first 24 hours, especially if it’s your first time receiving the treatment. The goal is to allow the SkinVive formula to settle and minimize any potential side effects.
What Results Can I Expect From SkinVive™ by Juvéderm®?
After the treatment, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in the texture and suppleness of your skin. However, the full effects will generally take about a week to manifest. As for how long the results last, it varies from person to person. Generally, most patients enjoy the benefits of SkinVive for up to six months.
