Introducing Skinvive | What is Skinvive & The Science Behind It
Skinvive by Juvederm is the first and only FDA-approved microdroplet injectable for improving smoothness and hydration in the cheeks. We are very proud to have had our owner and founder, Dr. Mona Foad, selected as a national trainer for this revolutionary new treatment. She attended the Allergan AMI training in Washington, D.C. in September and was able to bring back her learnings to share with us!
WHAT IS SKINVIVE & HOW DOES IT WORK
The quality of our skin is one of the key indicators for our overall health and youthfulness. For many of the top contributors to skin quality, such as skin tone, texture, and elasticity we already have tools to address them here in our office. But when it comes to hydration, up until now our best options have been topical moisturizers & hydrators, such as SKinMedica’s HA5, or hydrating facial treatments such as Diamond Glow or Oxygen Facial. The issue with all of these options is that they do not provide a long-lasting hydration and only address the top layers of skin. Hydration affects not only the way skin looks and feels, but also how it reacts and behaves. Skinvive is a hyaluonic acid injectable that is placed in the deeper layers of the skin and acts like a long-lasting moisturizer. Skinvive creates a glow and smoothness that lasts up to 6 months!
SKINVIVE CLINICAL STUDIES
Skinvive was studied in 208 patients across all skin types who had moderate to severe loss of overall cheek smoothness, including visible signs such as coarse and uneven skin texture, fine lines, and loss of elasticity. After being treated with Skinvive, the majority of patients improved by at least one score on the cheek smoothness scale. This means if they started with severe loss of smoothness, they improved to show only moderate or minimal loss of smoothness post-treatment. This improvement also persisted for 6 months. When asked to rate their skin at 3 months post-treatment, 84% saw an improvement in overall skin health, 74% saw improvement in radiance, 78% saw improvement in hydration, and 79% felt their skin looked more refreshed. Other notable improvements included pore appearance, skin tone and color, smoothness, morning appearance, and end of day appearance.
WHAT TO PAIR WITH YOUR SKINVIVE TREATMENT
The best way to create plump, glowing skin is by addressing hydration within all layers of the skin. Topical skincare products are great for hydrating the top layer of your skin, known as the epidermis. Some of our favorites include hyaluronic acid hydrators such as HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator or HA Immerse Serum. Using a moisturizer daily will also help to lock in moisture and protect your skin barrier; some of our best-sellers include SkinMedica Rejuvenative Moisturizer, SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer, and SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream. The next layer in your skin is known as the Dermo-epidermal junction. The best way to address this layer is with treatments that can infuse more deeply into the skin, such as the Diamond Glow Hyaluronic Acid Serum treatment. Lastly, by injecting Skinvive into the deep dermis, you will have incorporated hyaluronic acid to all layers of the skin.
