SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a smooth, injectable HA gel that contains a small amount of local anesthetic (lidocaine). Unlike other facial injectables that enhance and augment the treatment area, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® improves skin quality in the cheeks by smoothing the skin and increasing hydration. It is a specialized, smooth, hydrating gel that flows easily into the skin and is approved for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI, lightest to darkest, addressing an important unmet need in the skin quality category.

“Hydration is a very important component of skin quality, impacting topographic, visible and mechanical concerns,” says Marissa Abdo, MS, RN, CANS, Founder of Aesthetic IQ Clinic. “This injection works extremely well by increasing a protein in the skin called Aquaporin-3 (AQP3) that facilitates the flow of water and glycerol into and out of cells, promoting hydration.” 

Patients treated with SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM® showed improvement in fine lines of the cheeks at month one, with results lasting six months. In addition to improving skin smoothness of the cheeks, patients reported satisfaction with how glowing their skin looked through six months.

“This really is the first product that is truly universal for all skin types,” says Abdo. “No matter what shade or texture, patients have the opportunity to attain glowing, refreshed and healthy skin with minimal downtime.” 

The recommended treatment plan for SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM® is every six months to maintain results. A typical treatment session takes just 10 to 15 minutes, making it a convenient treatment for patients and providers. The most common issues reported by patients were redness, swelling, lumps, bruising, and tenderness. 

“This particular product has been used in Europe and Canada for years with beautiful results with 84% of patients saying they see and feel a difference at 6 months,” says Abdo. “For the same price as an expensive moisturizer from the department store, you can get 6 months of lasting hydration and glow from one treatment of this new injectable moisturizer.”
