What to Expect
Photos will be taken prior to your procedure to track your progress. Our experienced providers will discuss your areas of concern and facial anatomy to create a customized treatment plan for your goals. A topical numbing cream will be applied for your comfort.
Our experienced providers will discuss and assess your concerns. Depending on your skin type, age, and dryness this will determine how many injections are needed. We will mark out your skin for where the Skinvive will be injected to achieve your desired result. Once your skin is marked, they will begin injecting small amounts of Skinvive throughout the skin. The entire procedure takes 20-30 minutes.
We will apply Arnica cream which works to decrease bruising. You can wash your face and apply makeup within an hour after treatment. Please hydrate with plenty of water! You may begin to notice improvements in your skin hydration and skin quality as soon as the next day, but full results will take up to a month.
How long will my appointment take?
Our experienced injectors take the time to assess your skin and decide on how much Skinvive is right for you. Our trained nurses will take pictures and apply a topical numbing for 20 minutes prior to your procedure beginning. Once the treatment begins, it will take about 20-30 minutes.
Do Skinvive injections hurt?
We strive to make you as comfortable as possible with numbing creams to help take the edge off the injections. Any discomfort you may feel should be short-lived.
When will I start seeing results?
You will see results immediately. Over the following few days the treated areas will attract water and smooth, making the final results even better!
How long will my results last?
Your results should last about 6 months.
Will there be downtime?
This is usually a no-downtime procedure. Occasionally a bruise or redness may develop that lasts for a few days, so you may want to plan around important events in your life. If a bruise does develop, we can treat it within 1-3 days with our VBeam laser. This helps bruises to fade away more quickly.
There are no restrictions post-procedure and many patients return to work and other daily activities the same day.
